Around here I think they call that a planter. He wants a drill for small grains. Oldmanbishop, Have you checked out craigslist? I see them from time to time that are pretty cheap. I had one for a few years and it pulled easy with a 2N

They are pretty simple machines really. Lots of moving parts though. Nothing wrong with a wooden wheel one if it isn't worn out, rusted stuck or the wood rotted. Mine was a steel wheeled JD Van Brunt. If you go to look at one bring a hi lift jack and raise one wheel up. Then open the top of the hopper and watch to see if all the little gears are turning on the shaft as you turn the wheel. Then do the same thing on the other side as most of them are actually two machines built side by side. The one I had was slightly stuck when I got it but I got it freed up by spraying PB Blaster everywhere inside for a few days and gently rocking the wheel. Worked good after that. JMS MN from this board taught me a lot about drills. There is a trip lever (or two trip levers) on the front that you pull with a rope to engage the ground drive that makes them work. Neat machines.
