A friend gave me a couple of 80 units that he had not cleaned the corn out of and had left out side. There was not much left of the alum housings. We bought a tool bar with 6 80s on it. They had been cleaned out. They were still corroded but with some carful disassembly they were salvageable. The metering units are removed from the planter every year after we are done and they are stored inside. Not the greatest accuracy planting but it works for 20 acres a year.

They are for sale if you need was just trying to figure out what to do with them. Seems guys want the older planter parts or the newer. Not many guys seem to be into the 1240 planters from what i can tell.
