Dusty, I've seen lots of 2 row check planters at auctions over the years but I've never seen a 4 row. They're usually being sold by Amish farmers or bought by them. Very popular for use in their horse farming operations.

Here's a picture of the 2 row I use:

Hows the C-251 planter working on the cub? Ive been searching for a C-251 with fertilizer and a 2pt for a long time with no success. Anyone willing to sell one. I have my Grandfathers Super C that I want to plant food plots with.

It was sold to a feller from Kentucky , I run up on 251 planters from time to time. all you need to do it change the hitch. Most are 3 point.
Let me know if you are real interested in one.
