Patrick, Great looking setup you've got there. Will the transplanter need any mods to work with hemp? Do you think you need double weights on the back?

I wont need the double weights for transplanting, I have them on the tractor because I am going to use the extra weight to till and make 56" furrows on about 3 acres. I talked to one of the owners at the holland company and I explained what I was doing and he said it will work perfectly for hemp and told me what settings to use. He even gave me the colors to restore it and he has original decals. He said its the only cub fast hitch one hes seen in about 30 years. He even has all the replacement parts for it if I need anything to include the watering system. He said for my garlic, remove the arms bolted to the chain that hold the plant, and bolt on a piece of PVC pipe instead and just drop the garlic cloves down the pipe. He told me the despeeder is perfect for the garlic because the cloves take longer to slide down the pipe when it comes around. It gives it time to set properly.
I went through EVERY part of the tractor flushing with kerosene, resealing everything, adding fresh fluids, new wiring, 12v conversion with electronic ignition, and the engine was rebuilt right before I bought it and was bored thirty over. Should be a solid field ready tractor now. Hopefully better than when it rolled off the line, at least mechanically.

Will the Cub pick it up with 2 people and plants on it? That's a lot of weight for a Cub hydraulic system hanging out that far. I have the same planter but it came from a guy who used it on a 140.

According to the info I got, the riders have to get off at the end of the row, and then back on once you turn the tractor around.

In case you don't know, you can go to pdf manuals, OEM Implement and Attachment Manual and Brochures, Holland Transplanter and the manual for that planter is there. It's in color as well.

Great looking rig, and it sounds like you have everything planned out. If you get tired of the wheel weights sticking out so far, you can mount one on the inside since the centers are dished out.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!
