In 2016, the 4900 performed absolutely flawlessly. It was a complete turnaround from what we had experienced in ’14 and ’15. The planting efficiency on the 4900 this year, was awesome. It was just very easy to get 350-400 acres a day with the planter.

We continue to use Kinze products because of the technology and because we believe in the products. We’ve checked some of the other brands and we didn’t have as good of luck. Kinze is a simple machine. It’s a proven machine. And I believe that’s all I’ll ever use on our farm.~ Dan Brettnacher
It goes back to the reliability and the design of Kinze products, and how sturdy and dependable they are. And of course, the dealer support we receive, and also the support from the company.~ Mike Homolka
