I know of at least one, maybe two. I didn't know these were for sale when I hooked you up. I think the 3 row planter was on a Planet Jr when he got it.

ok I was curious because he said he hadn't ever seen another one before himself. The planter I'm pretty sure is a iron king because is exactly like what is pictured in my bolens catalogs I have but maybe your right maybe it is planet jr it's going to need a lot if work mostly need to find one of those sprockets for the chain drive it's busted I already have a set of row markers that will fit on it when I get a chance I will snap a picture of a set of wheels I got from him they are skinner than the normal dj wheels but you can tell they are original curious if you have ever seen any like them

Planet Jr never made any chain drive seeders.

 

Post some pics of it.

I didn't say they were pplanet jr planters, I said they were behind a planet jr tractor. I'm not sure if those wwere it or not. I know he bought a PJr with a 3 row planter set up and I thought he said something about it going behind a Bolens. I've slept since that happened so my memory may be cloudy.

I figured that was what you were talking about but wasn't 100% sure So you think those are iron king or some other brand now that you have seen what they look like? I swear the bolens catalogs call these iron king I just looked again even shows the drive chains

they certainly look like the #4 Iron King seeder in my 1937 Planet Jr catalog. The only thing that looks different is the smaller rear wheel and the lid in my picture is flat topped.  this may be due it being used as a gang seeder.

That should keep you busy for a while! How many of them run?

 

What model is the one with the stamped steel wheels? It almost looks like it has roller chain going down to the drives and not the block chain.

 

Congrats on the awesome haul!  :thumbs:

A while back you were looking for information on a Bolens with a skip tooth chain.    Is one of these tractors the one with that chain ?

. Yes the HB has the skip chain or block chain whatever it is called. I think the chains are still useable on this unit
