grain drill for super A?

Postby easydog » Thu Jun 18, 2015 2:12 pm

]Found this Oliver grain drill at an upcoming auction. First off, would my '53 Super A be able to handle pulling an implement that large, and secondly, anybody have any idea what model it is?

From the "OLI" I would guess Oliver. Someone else will have to answer the size question.

How wide is it? Judging by the picture I would say the Super A would handle it fine.

I pull a similar MF one with a Farmall 100 and dad used the Super A for years with an Ontario drill.

Grain drills don't take much HP to pull. That one looks like a 6-7' wide model, so it should be no problem unless you have some very steep hills.
