Width and style and wear of openers dictate what price I would pay. If I were looking to buy one, I would look at the feed shafts, see if they are free, make sure nothing is twisted off. Pull the seed tubes off, and have a look at the feed doors, try to move the lever on the door. Open the box, and look at the feeds, make sure they look uniformly open. If it has the ground drive pickup, check for cracks, welds etc on the castings.

Hey Dave,

Thanks for the tips on what to look for. I've looked it over and think it's in acceptable condition, though I will be replacing the disk openers.
I was looking more for information specifically on the FB-C. It looks a lot like an 8000 series drill (bottom pic in my scan of the 1968 Long Green Line book is an FB-C). I have found no information on them online, nor have I found any for sale. I did find one on a completed auction from 2011 and some manuals on ebay, but no other info is to be had. Were they a good drill? a problematic drill? It has Bromegrass attachment - was that any good?

Now that I see it, it is bigger and newer than the junk I have experience with.
