Hello everybody. First time posting here. I purchased a Brinly planter but it didn't come with any seed plates. Does anyone make or sell plates that will fit or am I SOL? What is the model of this planter and what else am I missing in the seed hopper?

there is a metal plate that goes over about 3/4 of the seed plate originally. I think that ones a KK350, but idont have my booklet any more. There are no known seed plates other than finding orginal ones. If yuo contact Brinly they will send you a manual via email. At least they used to do this .

The manual for a KK-305 can be found here: Brinly KK-305 Planter Manual - Manuals - Garden Tractor Talk - Forums
There is also some other Brinly things in the 'Universal Attachments', page 7. I have a few more to upload in the morning.

Here are a couple of pictures I took of a plater at a show.

This one is a liite different than your model but close.

It might help you on the hitch area.

Thanks everybody. I did find some seed plates on EB and they seem to fit. I will post some pictures as soon as I can. Now I need to get the hitch together.

Not exactly a Brinly Planter, but there is a nice thread on wfm on the JD 71 planter. I can't link to it here, but you can go there and do a search of "71 planter" and find some info on them.

Here's one I just got tonight - it is a Sears Suburban Seeder and Fertilizer model 597.261620 - here's a link to the picture Sears Suburban Seeder and Fertilizer - Garden Tractor Talk Gallery
I am so excited I found this thing. It will be a nice piece of equipment for shows.
I think anyone that finds a planter that isn't rusted out is very lucky. The fertilizer and them being left out in the rain made them rust out really badly.
I don't know what it is worth on the open market - but I know it is close to priceless to me.

Thanks! Yeah - it is in pretty good shape. I mean it was redone and re-painted, there is a little bit of pitted metal on it - but it still looks good.
I am also looking at an old 3 Point "Estate Rake" - it looks like a mini hay rake. Have never seen one before. I am trying to talk the guy into selling it. It just sits in the attic of his barn. I'll get pics of it next time I am over there.

you are missing the jaw that hooks on the sleeve hitch. i have the same planter so if you need pictures of the hitch i can help you out. as far as seed plates go there hard to find i only have the peanut plate for mine. i was at a small tractor dealier an they had a new planter there like a brinly and i was looking at it an im pretty sure they use the same plates. im goin to take my plate an see if its the same. if it is i will give you the number to the store so you can get some plates also.
