I have this older Brinly planter that was given to  me. I cannot find a model number.  The front plow sweep is mounted different than the other Brinly planters I have seen.  It is missing the hitch plates and I only have one seed plate, so it would be helpful to get a model number.  Thank ou.

What do you mean by "It is missing the hitch plates"?

 

All I see that is missing is the row marker.

 

As for the hitch, that looks like a standard sleeve hitch setup.

In the first image (downladed from another post), the hitch plates are outlined in red. If you will notice in my original post image,those are missing. The actual hitch is being propped up by  a tent stake.

 

When I  first picked up the planter, the hitch was not attached to the frame. My guess is that somewhere along the line somebody  attempted to bolt the planter on a cultivator frame. In the process, losing some parts.

 

In the second photo below (my planter), you you will notice a welded horizontal  rod in the frame in place of  two of the rear bolt holes that are used in mounting the hitch paltes. I will probably end cutting out that rod once I get the hitch plates.

Now I see what you mean with the parts missing. Wouldn't think they would hard to make. But does yours have the 2nd hole back farther? Can't time from the pics.

No, it does not have the second hole. It has a  welded rod instead.   I agree the plates should not be hard to make. Before I removed the rod and drill holes in the frame,  I wanted to see the original hitch plate configuration first, just to make sure I wasn't missing anything.

I have a planter of the same vintage, hd to go find that thread to see what was different. http://gardentractor...er/#entry151591

The front sweep on yours is an added piece, and I believe it is off a cultivator. Probably someone trying to make it work better in hard ground... Might work really well, actually.

Nice unit, did you get any other plates with it?

MH81,

Thanks for that post. I only have  one seed plate,  #28.

Did you ever figure out what model it is?

I finally got back in there to the planter.

 

The hitch is exactly like yours and has the second rod welded in there.

 

the plates are to keep the planter from moving to far on the hitch while keeping the thing floating to acheive proper operation.

 

the planter itself is not able to be gotten out at this point, but the pin could be pulled and the plates measured.
