Duane Sheppard: Nothing Frightens this Farmer


Hoopeston, Illinois


Corn and Soybeans


3600 16-32 Split Row


What was your first Kinze product?

The first Kinze product I bought was in 2002. It was a 3600, 12-24 split row, and it was a really good machine. Thought I’d died and gone to Heaven when I got it, considering what I had before. 


What keeps you coming back to Kinze?

The dependability and durability are second to none. Under certain conditions, when the ground is tough and hard, the Kinze planter will do the job and put it in the ground. And it will put it in right, and we don’t have to worry about bending or breaking parts. It’s just a heavy-duty, durable, simple machine.
