About Us

Hi! Here is alittle bit about our history:

Benjamin grew up on a farm and was home schooled until he was 16. He always enjoyed farming but needed another way to earn income. In 2010 he began selling used combines and tractors. Thus the name Biggs Farm Equipment came. In 2013 he met and married his beautiful wife Christy. He continued farming and selling used equipment but needed an additional income because the farm equipment sales were slow. In the winter of 2014 he designed a 2 row planter frame and mounted John Deere 7000 row units on his frame. What started out as selling a few planters has now evolved into making dozens of planters, including making one with dry fertilize. In July 2016 his  brother Joe was tragically killed in a tractor/dump truck accident. The only way we have been able to cope with his loss is we know that he is in a better place because of his faith in Jesus Christ and knowing we will see him again someday in heaven. Joe was a big help around the farm and could pretty much help out in any way. Dad has really missed him and his help.  I (Benjamin) help out in the spring and fall with planting and harvesting crops. We are a honest hard working family and appreciate your business.

    What is the turnaround time on a two row planter? Can you tell me what shipping would be to a 53807 ZIP Code which is Southwest Wisconsin?

    Sir,
    We require a 2 row corn planter for seed trials in the U.K. Can I get a price on your 2 row planter with dry fertiliser, no till coulters and insecticide boxes mounted at 30″ spacing.
    Also can you crate the planter? I will then arrange shipping back to the UK.
    Thank you for your YouTube video, looks like a nice build.
    Regards Jim

    I just purchased a 2 row John Deere planter from them. I was very impressed with the quality of workmanship and pride they take in their work. It was a pleasure doing business with them. I highly recommend them.

    Hello, was curious if you made pull behind 2 row units just like the ones you have listed but with a tongue and hydraulics to raise and lower the planter? I have a JD 750 and I am sure your 2 row no till units with fertilizer boxes are too heavy for my machine. Second question, what is the approximate weight of your 2 row no till units?
    Thank you

    1. Yes we have done a pull type in the past, weight would depend on with or without fertilizer.

    Can you put fertilizer on a one row unit?

    1. Unfortunately no. A fertilize box services 2 boxes at a time. There is a guy on Mankato MN Craigslist that sells a conversion kit for the insecticide boxes to do fertilize.
