I started with these last year. I undersatnd it is green and not red. But you have to give credit where credit is do. the JD71 planter is self contained and can plant anything, just change out the plate, if they don't have the plate, you can buy a blank and make what you want. You can still buy parts for them.

Does that planter work with your cub, or do you have to use it with your 301A JD?

I've got a class"0" 3 point hitch on my cub, so I am hoping this kind of planter would work with it

Thats a nice looking planter. Now I'll have to clean and paint my McCormick IH 185 .They are another option for use with the Cub or any tractor. They are unit planters like your JD. I made a toolbar to attach to the rear gangs of my 144 cultivator and then centered the planter so I could use the wheel tracks as markers. Parts availability I'm not sure of, but I got a manual through Carter & Gruenwald with no trouble. It did an excellant job on sweet corn, indian corn, and open pollinated field corn. Gonna try to get the Sunflower and bean plates and use it for them too this year. John
