That is, IMO, a Brinly KK-520 Vegetable Planter with Fertilizer Canister but I could be wrong.

Tthe two canisters appear to be mounted incorrectly. The tall one should be directly above the wheel and it should have feed plate mounted on the opposite side shown in your photo that drops down to a sort of coulter disc mounted on a bracket bolted to the side of the frame. The plow sweep seems to be incorrect for the KK-520 as it used what they called a "depth gauge". .

There were 5 seed plates included with that planter along with 3 "distance sprockets" that determined how far apart the seeds were planted. There were also 11 other seed plates available as optional equipment. If you send an e-mail to Judy at Brinly, she will provide you with 2 PDF's of the original Parts Manual for this planter.

For all those reading this thread, I have found the people at Brinly to be exceptionally helpful and I have nothing but praise for them and this amazing company.

Thanks for that information. I have e emailed contact for Brinly. When I spoke to them on the phone yesterday, they were not helpful and stated that they did not support planters anymore.

When I first got this planter, there was a flexible seed tube behind the front sweep. As you noticed, it is inconsistent with other planters.

Those were made by cole-powell co. The company is still in business, name has changed, I think, in GA, google around, lots of farm equipment dealers sell parts, Plates run around $20 average, EBAY lists several, most of the time, but it's cheaper through a dealer, IMHO.

The last time I talked to the Cole folks they said they weren't making anymore of the older style plates and only going to sell off of the stock they now have.Also there are several variations of the Brinly/Cole planter plates and they will not interchange.

Yes, there are 2 (I think) types of Cole/Powell plates, the smaller ID one, and the lagger ID one, for the big Cole vegetable planters. The brinley takes 3" center hole plates. Might be getting scarce, now, but if there is a demand, you could replicate them in plastic.

I know of 3 different sizes in the Brinly planters the first ones used a square drive in the center and then the two different centers.Is someone making Brinly plates in plastic? I've never seen any.I did buy out an EX Brinly dealer in a vegetable growing area and got some nice unique plates around 200 of them.There were according to the Brinly manuals I have 126 different plate planting variations made for those planters.

For the record, I no of no one currently making plastic ones. What I meant, is that these planters will always have a value, hence there will always be a market for plates. Making these plates in plastic, would not be hard to do, is what I am saying.

Probably someone sooner or later will come up the plastic plates I guess.I adapted a John Deere 71 planter to Cat 0 3pt and like it better planting with a garden tractor than the Brinly Planter plus JD plates are everywhere but not cheap even the plastic ones.

That is high priced for EBAY! Search cole planter plates, the ones you want will have a 3" center hole, (3-3/8 at the drive tangs) and a part number of OR XXX. XXX is the part number, # of seed per wheel, OR means right hand drive. They made a version of this planter, for small farmall tractors, that was a twin row, that used left and right hand drives. Google Covington, in Georgia, they bought out cole-powell. There are cole plates on EBAY for $25 or thereabouts.

Thats very very high in my opinion.The plates that are most popular like something to plant sweet corn can get a pretty high price.I've bought a bunch for far less than the $149 for sure
but there are alot of planters without plates or with only one plate around these days.
