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.

. Do you know if they ever had a owners manual for the seeder besides the David Bradley manual?

I've never seen a Bolens manual for one. I'm sure they had one, Bolens was pretty good at printing up stuff for all the machines. I think I saw an ad one time that stated they had 7 tractors and 111 attachments. That would be a pile of manuals.

. I have purchased over a dozen dealer binders over the years an have yet to run across a seeder manual for these style seeders you would think they would have one but if they did they must be super rare

I think that the sulky was made by midland the cart could
Be as well. I have seen several carts with the same box with different hitch serious an so forth so not sure who actually manufactured them I seen part of a sulky like this one but it was hacked up I think it may be post fmc era

Yes sir, actually the middle page you post shows a small trailer behind the walk behind tractor. I just recently found one, it's a dump bed and has a metal tractor seat on it. I'm in the middle of a rebuild on it, unfortunately I did not take pictures of it as I found it. I do have pictures of the original decals and will post a picture of it when I get it all back together.                bolen8.jpg bolen11.jpg bolin1.jpg
