Tandem Hitch For Deere Drills"It lets me use two older, inexpensive drills to do the job of a newer, more expensive one," says Larry Meyer, Wabash, Ind., who came up with his own tandem drill hitch for an identical pair of 10-ft. FBB Deere drills.
Meyer built the hitch out of an HI dual corn planter hitch, making several modifications, including some extra framing and heavier wheel bearings. Each drill can be quickly unhooked and used separately. You can also unhook or reposition the drills one behind the other for road transport.
"One modification I made to the drills was to open up the partition between the fertilizer compartment and the seed compartment to double seed capacity. Each drill now holds about 20 bags of soybeans," says Meyer. "The biggest drawback to this hitch is that each drill has its own independent hitching point which makes it hard to make real sharp turns."
