Fertilizer plates for John Deere 246 corn planter
« on: March 12, 2008, 11:28:50 PM »
I am looking for fertilizer plates for a two row JD 246 planter.  I know they are the same for 246/247/446/447 planters.  If you guys have any to sell or know of any I can buy I would really appreciate it.

Thanks, Farmerdoug

I don't know if they are similiar parts to a JD Potato Planter but I have a 2 row planter sittin' in Maine and your welcome to any parts on it.  I'm not familiar with the machinery.  It appeared to have some expensive looking belts on it last time I looked.  They got 170 inches of snow so it ain't goin anywhere for a while. :D

If they're the same, they're yours.  Not sure that would help you for this planting season though.

Does anyone have an owners manual (or at least the chart that shows seed spacing) using the different sprockets on the 246?  I really need that chart; been trying to figure out how to work it out mathematically but I'm VERY POOR in math skills!

Thanks!

Lew,

I emailed you some scans.  Let me know if it is what you wanted and if they are okay.

Doug,
Did you ever find some plates?
I took pictures of this old Potato Planter.  If they are the same you can have them.  We'll need some Rust Reaper though. :D

Just from the pics I do not think they will work.  Thanks for the offer.  Maybe someone here could use a potato planter. ???
