Yesterday I picked up a Super C with cultivators and side dressers for my organic corn crops. I'm not a hippie radical... they just pay more for organics, so I do what the market demands! It fit between the fenders on the trailer with about 1/4 inch to spare for it's 5 hour long ride from Toledo, OH to SW PA.
We had a Super C when I was very little in the early 80's, and it was for cultivating the sweet corn. This one has dressers on it, and each bucket has two tubes, it has a splitter. It also came with the sheilds for the corn rows, and all new shovels.
Where is the serial number? It should be under the seat, but the tag is gone, it is stamped somewhere?
It has some kind of suspension seat on it that's badly worn, and will just fall over backward into the tool box as the strap is rusted thru. I want to convert it to just the regular, as I remember it, steel seat with the big cone shaped coil spring. Anyone have one??
It has the round fiberglass bins for the dressers, were those factory? They look to be the same ones we had on the IH 56 planter we used to have. I need the lids if someone has them or reproducing them?
I've seen these cultivators on restored tractors and they are always blue... are they IH or aftermarket? I see some blue paint in places on these ones.
I'll post pictures tomorrow... someone along the way painted it with a paint brush in a lighter red... ugh. I'll repaint it this winter, but it's going to be a working machine, so it has to earn it's keep for now.
FYI... this guy is selling 2 more SC's... one is exceptional condition, I didn't see it run, and the other has been sitting out back, not bad looking but the exhaust has been open to the weather for 2 years, I put a bucket over it when I was there. He also has an A or SA all rusting up and 2 140's with cultivators. I can pass his info along if someone wanted to look at them in NW Ohio.
Thanks for your help!
