Those clutch lift planters are very scarce and finding a complete clutch lift is just about impossible. I have one here that somebody took the clutch off before I got it, been thinking of trying to take a clutch off an Oliver 26 drill and rig it up that way but I think it will be more than it is worth to go that way being it would be a modified planter. A complete in decent condition clutch lift with fertilizer is worth close to a thousand dollars. Last year took an Amish friend to auction to buy a planter, the 449A and he paid I think $950 for it plus the cost of getting it home of over a hundred mile and this year is looking at putting in $300 worth of parts to get it field ready, supposed to pick up those parts wed. Got this 449 for parts thinking more would fit his planter but his has disk seed openers and this has shoe openers and the fertilizer openers are different. They are the only 4 row planter that was built that could be set for 30" rows and that was avaible with a clutch lift that can be pulled by horses. At that time most were hydrolick lift and so the few remaining units even cylinder lift are high priced even for parts. If you have a tractor that you can use the cylinder then do it as to convert for you would not be worth it.

I have a 449A I'll be selling some parts off of. My email is open if interested. I don't know your location as shipping heavy items is alway a consern and can kill a deal.

Figured you had decided not to sell them and it was before I first was in contact with you that I had that Idea and gave up on it as too much work. Will send you an email later Leroy

Thanls for the info! I really appreciate it. The planter I am looking at needs disk opener bearings, are they available? I was hoping to pull it with one of our older tractors but maybe the newer ones will work and I have a cylinder brand new that I never used. Thanks!
