If you are interested in another hopper for the 300A i can contact my friend and see if he still has one to sell.

If you don't mind look into it and message me the details.

Thanks, I thought it looked like a 300 to me too. Cole makes a planter that looks very similar. It seems there are a lot of parts on ebay. Looking at the hitch I am wondering if it was intended for the planet jr walk behind.

ussally I have found that Bolens used some part of the cultivator attachment to mount these seeders on, which would have had a different hitch that the one pictured. I'm sure a Bolens expert will be by shortly and verify this.

Correct, they used the rear Tool Bar portion of a cultivator. Part numbers for the hitch depended on what type of walk behind it was for.

I have to agree with you there. The bolens seeders I have seen are also chain drive to the seed hopper not gear drive. Since I can hook it up to the power ho, why not use it. Maybe I need to be looking for another walkbehind that is correct for the planter ( don't tell my wife)

To help clarify, here's a picture of what an original setup would have looked like:

Is that also a 300A planter?

I don't have one so I'm not really sure where the row marker would go. Just going by what the manuals have.

Would like to find one someday though!

the seeder unit I have here(sorry no picture) uses the Rausher patent, built by Danville manufacturing. This seeder is most commonly found on DB tractors and is incorrectly named for them. It uses a drive chain off the rear wheel, with seed disc's of different sizes. It is mounted to the tool bar of a vator that fit my Versamatic.  The row marker pivits off the frame and you lift it with a rope/twine to either side.

Is the rope used to just lift the packer wheel and furrow opener out of the ground, leaving the drive wheel down or does it lift the whole works up?

The planter used on the power would have either been a planet jr number 25 or a Danville seeder the planet jr 300a was used in the four row seeder setup for the bolens ridemaster tractors

Whole thing lifts for the DB seeder and PJ 300A, both are ridged framed seeders, seeder that flexes are the PJ no 2, no 3, no 4, no 25, few others and the newer PJ multi-flex by Cole that does not require to be lifted all the way hence it working as push seeders.
