You had me wondering ,I've never had the seeder on the tractor so I had to go above the garage to check . Not concrete but galvanize sheet metal bolted on . Could that have been some kind of factory add-on ? Looks to be made pretty well . All the pictures in the manuals show spoke wheels . Al

the first thing i noticed about your wheels is it looks like cement or some kind of conpond with a steel band, i wonder if it is spoked wheels filled in for weight, ?

wow i can sleep better tonite. finding all the correct parts for a walk=behind seeder is tough, finding twice that many for a tri=trac is harder. So when you going to install it and picture it for us who dont have one?????

Well the mystery arms have been figured out....just don't have the sears tractor to figure out the rest of it......the 725 david bradley is still with the previous owner since I did not have time to go down there over the weekend. I still thinking these were early 70's model implements. Anyway .....the cultivator had a bracket on it to hold the fertilizer hopper.....the mystery arms attach to the cultivator so you could do 2 jobs at one time...fertilize and cultivate......there is even cut outs on the bracket to match up to the holes in the fertilizer...from what I can tell this is all factory parts.......anybody seen this before??


Even if it's not OEM, it a really cool piece. It looks Factory to me tho. :thumbs: really cool!

I dug out the manual for the fertilizer attachment and noticed the copy date was 11/49 , believe that's 4 years before the Tri-Trac was made . Guessing it was made to fit many of the DB seeders , here's the back page , AlP9290240.jpg

The hitch is intresting, look at the placement of the top spring on the flat bar holding the fer. attachment, and what is that flat bar in frount of the furrow shoe, looks like spring steel, a furrow guide ?,...........................

Alc, you have the lids for the fert hoppers. Those are the rarist part of any seeder unit. I've only seen a couple in 20yrs.

In the Fertilizer manual's parts page there is a note that the " Hopper Lid *18092 is only furnished with Cat. #5546 Two Row Fertilizer Attachment for Two Row Seeder " They slide in from the side wrapping around the rolled hopper edge . Another note saying they can be special ordered , guessing for single seeders . Al
