2-4 Row Mechanical Planter
« on: December 08, 2005, 09:09:27 PM »
I am looking for preferably a 2 Row mechanical planter for my brother.  His Kubota does not have hydraulics so it has to be a mechanical planter.  4 Row will work but be prepared, he is cheap.

  "Come into my den", said the spider to the fly, "and we shall speak of supper."  I just so happen to have in my posession, a John Deere Model 71 two row planter.

Well, Kirk, what do you think?  I showed one photo of a weld that seems to have held for a number of planting seasons.   I thought the main bar was solid, I now beleive that is only a piece of heavy tubing with the ends covered and welded shut.

Thanks Frank. I got them and have forwarded them to my brother.  I should here from him by tomarrow and I will get back to you. 

What would be the best way to get that thing to Illinois?

For you to drive out here with your new trailer full of logs and leave here with a two row corn planter and not logs. 8)

Frank you are quite a character.  I am half tempted just so I could meet you face to face.  Problem with that is I would see more stuff I wanted and then have to build a bigger trailer.

What you going to do with that roller in the background of the planter pic?

No, the trailer would be large enough for what I would want to send to the East. ;D


You would not be obligated to build a larger trailer at all.  I have one that would surfice the job at hand.  You would be much happier with the one I sent home with you. 8)  In fact, it was built in Wisconsin; it was built by LaCross.  It has a capacity of about 40,000 lbs. ;)

Weeeeell, I belive there is a boom in PA that needs to go West so Kirk could recoup part of the cost that way.
By sending me out, he would save a TON of cash as he wouldn't be temped to buy more stuff.
I've got a couple things to look into out your way........ it's a win, win for everyone! ;)
What's a couple more thousand miles on Kirk's truck anyways. :D

Hey, Furby, and and Kirk acan both comne out here.  You can rotate the driving and get here and back much quicker.  with the larger trailer your both can take home some treasures.  I have a 24' fiberglass hull all ready to load onto some lucky persons trailer.  Only  $250.

Brother Noble, I have two swing, cut off saws, but only two row corn planter.  It looks as though you may have the sale.  Besides, you are closer and Kirk and Furby will not have to drive so far.  They could get lost in the Rockies. :-X

Kirk,

The better of the two planters we might use again someday if we go back to putting up silage.  We have all the rest of the equipment,  just lack the time and ambition :D :D

The other one hasn't been used for many years and probably isn't worth messing with.  You are welcome to take a look at it if you are in this area.

I would think that old planters would be thick in your neighborhood.

OK Frank, You missed the Furby/Arky expodition, you missed the Bank story, and now you think UPS delivers E-mails :D :D
I think your having a senior moment :D :D

I had to call my brother and have him empty his mailbox because it would not except my email since his box is full.  He said he rarely checks it but did take care of it and I KNOW he got the pics because I called (just for you) to confirm. 

He will be down Friday night and I will speak with him about this weekend.  So be patient and enjoy your axe :D ;D

I have to do a bit of mining here on the farm, for the gold.   It is that home made slucebox that is always giving me fits.  It is not large enough to just use the loader bucket,m Ihave to hand shovel the material into the container. :'(

My wild guess is, that it could be somewhere between, $100 to $150 for shipping.  I would have to build a pallet/crate system of some sort.  I might be able to find one already built at one of the local tractor dealerships.  I will try a couple of them tomorrow. 
I know the shipping company I use, would want it crated for protection.  The seed containters are rather fragel in design to not have it crated on all sides.

Shipping cost is the biggy.  On one hand I wish you lived closer (or me closer to you) but on the other hand I am GLAD we are this far apart :o :D :D

Well, I got the drill weighed.  Just at 200 lbs., Kirk.  With just a pallet, it weighed in at 265 lbs.  I am sure it will weigh more with a crating job.
