This planter originally came from Winfield Dave's family. He wanted it to go somewhere where it would be used. It surely is used again here. Dave's dad had modified it with a pipe fitting to act as a standard, it's threaded on the top with a large nut to hold it at the right depth to tighten the clamp, the back bar clamps exactly up to the rear toolbar of the 252. I disassembled the whole thing and put it into the electrolosis tank and gave it a good rub down. It was primed, painted (International Federal Yellow), reassembled, and properly lubed. When I got it from Dave it also included the original seed plates in the original box with the instructions for setting the drive gears.
I planted an acre of sweet corn, half an acre of rattlesnake beans, and a quarter acre of cucumbers with it last Spring.
It worked well on the flats, but I'm going to work on making it so it can "float" in the way it attaches and that should make it even better.
I've aquired from Dale Shaw another of these units via Cub express, I was hoping to make a two row set up, but I think that it will be a parts unit.
