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 Danville seeders is ridged mount and rides on only one wheel. When get to the end of the row you have to lift the handles up to turn and raise the unit off the ground. you have to pull the rope to get the marker up, hang it off the handles or set it down to the other side. The Planet seeder uses the two wheels to float across the ground and pivots on the bars that pull it along, thus the need for the lifting rope.
