Saturday I was sorting things I bought at an estate sale last fall, and while I knew I had a Brinly 3 point hitch plow, I discovered that what I bought as a Planet Jr planter is actually a Brinly sleeve hitch planter that appears to have been used very little, as there is very little if any paint worn off the wheel or the shovels.

I was going to fix it up to use, but already have a later model one that is ready to go, so guess I will probably sell this old unit. Don't know the model #, but has the small HEAVY cast steel wheel on the rear with the seed box above it.

The seed box appears to be in good condition, but unfortunately it was evidently left sit with fertilizer in the other box, as it is badly rusted on the bottom of box.

Amazingly, all moving parts are free, and move as designed to when wheel is turned. It also has all 5 cast iron seed plates with it.

OxfordMercantile, I'm about 8 miles East of Gettysburg and if you plan to sell that planter, I would be very interested. I rigged up an Earthway planter to plant my gardens, and it works ok, but I'd much rather have a heavier planter. Gary

Great looking planter. It looks like is has seen very little use as you said. It's nice you have all five seed plates too. Congrats on a nice piece.
