corn planter, potato planter/digger

Postby BigBill » Fri Feb 27, 2015 8:27 pm

Is there an affordable two row corn planter?

A potato planter/digger?

Pictures would be helpful.

We're too old now to plant 1/4 acre of corn.

Thanks, bill
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

I have a multiplex 12 like the ad. Got it in a package deal and didn't even know it was included till the guy loaded it up.

Bill, find an older 4 row planter (auction, etc.) and cut it down to a two row. My dad bought this one new in the '50's and when he quit active farming in the late '70's he shoved it in the back of the barn. About 25 years ago he got it out and cut in down to a two row for me use for sweet corn. A perfect size for a Cub.

Denny, it's obvious Your Dad has taken great care of his equipment over the years. That's a fine two row combination unit. I bet it'll last another 50 years. Thanks for the pic's, Tom.

Two row planter for 1/4 a re is overkill, get a one row to hang on back. I k ow you an fab it up!

I agree with others that a two row planter is overkill for a 1/4 acre but if you want one you can look around for an old horse drawn planter than someone is using for lawn art. I picked up this one a couple years ago at a moving sale for dirt cheap and planted 9 acres with it at the deer camp. For potatoes I use a middle buster to plant and harvest. For corn in my 1/2 acre garden I use a one row 184 planter off my fast hitch but have also used the 172 one row planter.

Agreed, but in my case the price was right. :-:-): When you can find a one row it's usually big bucks.

Tom, thanks for the comment. While it wasn't worn out when it was converted, it got all new paint at the time. 8)

2-row is what I made from a 450- 4 row and its no overkill on 1/4 acre!---the weather is not going to give you time to mess around with 1-row!---this year I am using the 4-row green planter so I can get on to planting other stuff.
as far as tater planters, and diggers I made my own because around here this equipment is N/A and would be cost prohibitive to buy out of state and ship in.
Neighbors in this area plant with 36 and 48-row planters pulled with large 4-wd tractors!
videos of mine are on You-Tube if you care to watch them in actual use. thanks; sonny
