What is a seed planter worth? It has the fertilizer hopper and seven seed plates. Unrestored but not froze up. I will get some pics soon.20160316_154205.jpg

Ok let's talk! I am more Simplicity by default, but I picked this up last year because it was cool and I thought maybe it could be adapted to a Simplicity. Just too many projects and don't really have the resources to to be fabricating a whole lot. I will try to post pics later today. New to this forum stuff so learning as I go.

I believe so. Has the David Bradley Badges with Sears parts numbers on it. Pic is worth a thousands words. If the weather clears a bit I will get some after work and figure out how to post them.

yep its for a DB walking tractor, and has the fert attachment which you would have brought as a separate item new. Looks like some one tried to make it fit another brand of tractor, but the factory DB hitch is still there.  Now for the shocker............its not a DB seeder at all just sold by them. The real maker was Danville Manufacturing from Danville, ILL. The next shocker.........with a little different factory hitch its the same unit used by Simplicity for there walking tractors and maybe early riders. Its also the same unit as Bolens, Cub cadet, Frazier tillers, WH, and many more brought and sold to their customers. Paint that one orange and the wheel green, add the C shaped hitched and use it with your Simp tractor. Things I see missing from this one are the row marker, and the hopper lid. Inside the hopper lid would have been a paper chart that tells you how to set the seeding rates of the unit. The plates for theses are worth way more than the seeder unit itself, as there's about 5 seeders found for every full set of plates.

yes the 3pt one is modified by DB with the cross shafting for the arms, its the only model that cant really be made to fit any other tractor. I have 2 3pts, several walking ones, and a push style 2 wheeled model. I also have one for a Bolens walker, and had a Simp one that like a dummy sold a few yrs back.

Hello Raggedy Dan,

From your post I believe you are wanting to sell the modified seeder you have pictured.  I have one but I do not have the plates.  I would buy yours just to get the plates if you are interested in selling it.  I use to plant using a Earth Way but I'm a totally disabled vet and can't garden that way anymore. 

Please PM me if you still have it and want to sell.  Frank

God Bless

Hello, Frank.

 

Raggedy Dan hasn't been back on this site since May so he likely won't see your post. 

Best of luck with your search.
