I have a not so great picture of a #4 iron king seeder. It is in my 1944 planet jr agricultural implements catalog. Info state that it is the favored seeder of onion and carrot growers. Simple because it handled small seeds accurately.  Capacity was 3 quarts of seed. It would be interesting to know how many of these units were sold.

I believe that my 37 book said something about this being an onion seeder. According to the info in the front of the catalog, 1937 was the first yr Planet jr had took over the iron king line.

At first I thought they may be off a Shaw walk behind but in comparing them with this advertisement, they are a little different from the Shaw wheels.

The biggest difference is that these have chain sprockets and the Shaw wheels have gear sprockets. 

The spokes are a little different also.

They are from a bolens but I'm trying to figure out if they were a option or if they came on a specific tractor model

I noticed you took the pictures in a Walmart parking lot and was going to ask if you were taking after Ol Buzzard. Are the chain sprockets on those wheels the same as a normal chain?
