oldiron29 wrote:Something that is not made any more are galvanized fertilizer cans/box/hoppers. Both for full size and cub size planters/ side dressers. I wish someone would make them of galvanized sheet metal as the originals were made. I think you could sell quite a few of them to collector and guys that still use them. Wengers made stainless steel ones a couple years back but had problems with there welded seams, and have now stopped making them. oldiron29

Can someone post or direct me to a good picture of one of these? The only picture I found was a fiberglass hopper, I'd like to see a picture of the metal one. John

Dale, my design does work with the tank still on and you can take the hood off/back on.It doesn't interfere with the rockshaft(at least not with a sickle mower, plow, or other use of the rear rockshaft-I'm sure there are certain applications where it will). Attachments that need the same 2 mounting holes obviously wont work, but mounting it there with those (2) 5/8" bolts is easy and makes it rock solid. I liked it so much its still on mine even after restoring it 2 years ago as you can see in the picture.

Thanks for your input- being able to use it in every application would be the ultimate goal.
Tim

Thanks for the pics, The seed hoopers shouldn't be too difficult, I made a pair years ago for a JD 290 I had. I'll have to watch the tractor shows this summer to see a fertilizer hopper for more detail, but I think I could make a close repro of either. The only problem offhand is the new galvanized doesn't have the same mottled look it did 60 years ago. John

I would second a "close as possible to original" fertilizer hopper. The pony gas tank would be a nice addition too.

bushings for manual lifts
When you only have 9 horsepower you need to know the names of all of the ponies!
