Curious if anyone has ever seen or has any of these bolens attachments? I have never seen any actual manuals for any of these attachments. I would really like to find a original manual for the seeder if they even made one image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

. That's awesome I haven't ever seen a complete original one with bolens decals an a tag. I'm pretty sure bolens didn't make the carts I have three carts now but they are a different style

The seeder looks almost identical to the one david Bradley used. The only difference looks like how it hitches. Does anyone know who built them?

I can't read all the text on the seeder but doesn't it say Planet Jr? I think there may be one of those floating around here. At least it came with a Bolens.

. Your correct the seeder is the same as the David Bradley only difference really is the hitch setup also I have noticed that the actual shoe part that goes in the ground is always different as well Bolens had two different types of these seeders i have never seen a actual manual from bolens for one I believe they were made by some company in Illinois can't remember the name maybe Danville or something like that

I dont have the manual for the seeder,sulky or cart....

 

The sulky and cart are very early. I have seen a few of the carts but never seen an actual sulky like that yet.

. Doug bolens used planet jr seeders but this style is not planet jr Sears sold the same style planter that was a push type as well as a three point hitch style for the suburban tractors I have a original manual for the push type planter got it with a push planter I have I would think there has to manual out there for this style planter that's not marked sears/David Bradley since they didn't make it themselves

Aaron, take a pic of the text to the left of the seeder picture. Isn't that describing the seeder pictured?

Not Planet Jr., Sears, Much like the field planter it screams Brinly. Still working on that.

. Doug, doesn't give you a brand the part your seeing states there is also another planter that's a planet jr that they offered but that's not the planter pictured

That other one offered would be the old metal hopper Planet Jr. 300A Flex with sleeve hitch, now Cole Multiflex Planet Jr. line.

The seeder in the picture was made by Danville manufacturing, of Danville IL. I have one here, and they are the same as a db, short the hitching parts. Danville made this same model for at least a dozen different tractor company's, including the Frazier tiller.
