I've been looking for a planter for several years.
Only time one came up recently, I was saving for a car for the Wife.

Anyways, I found this in a pile of DB stuff. If I hadn't have taken it to save, it would've gone to the scrap.

As it is, I don't know how bad it is. It'll be another couple days before I get to even look at it.
The fertilizer hopper is pin holed
It's not free, but I'm hoping some penetrating oil will help that

My plan is to remove the old hitch & add the three point bar and top link bar.

Glad you saved it ! Will you be able to save the hitch brackets for the walk behind to use on one at a latter date ?

I think that one will keep you busy for a while.  Glad you saved it from the scrap.

That's my plan.
I may have to drill a hole in the frame to put the three point piece in, but other than that...

Hi MH81, I picked up a DB walk behind version this spring, someone had left fertilizer in the seep hopper and it was rust some inside but had rust thur the bottom og the hopper but it all came loose and I fiberglass a repair on the bottom and got it working, converted it to 3 pt hitch which is pretty easy to do.  Good luck with the project, I'd pour a qt of ATF in there plus some acetone and let it sit for a week.
