One tip, I hope you have quite a bit more horsepower than the 45hp minimum. That minimum is for flat ground in good worked soil. You get on a rocky hillside with a lot of stubble/residue and you can quickly get in trouble without enough HP. 2600lb machine plus seed on a 3 pt hitch sideling on a rocky hillside can get hairy without enough hp. And you need to sidle (go with the contour) to achieve the soil conservation. Planting up and down the hill, even with a no till does very little.
I rent out a 7 foot Great Plains and require 75hp minimum and closer to 90hp on steep ground.
