For all the parts you say you are going to need, BUY another planter, you can't afford to fix at the parts price you are going to have to pay.

Since I love this planter so much, I did buy another one with worn out runners and fertilizer bins. I'm a farm marketer and plant sweet corn, and pumpkins with this planter, 15-20 times a season, it's easy to use, and quick to clean out or change plates since it's just two rows. In my area, used 2 row planters are few and far between. New 2 row planters are sky high and would out live me. I'll try to keep this one running.

Would they be $800 or more? Planter just sold at auction on memorial day for $775. You can replace a lot of parts for that.

And pay more to buy anouther wore out planter than it would cost to repair properly and completely what you have. I see that too much.
