Look for a pull behind mechanical lift 10 foot Van Brunt or Minneapolis Moline drill. In my area, farm equipment consignment auctions are an excellent way to track one down. The N will work with one handily.

Terry The JD "FB series" uses a trip mechanism to raise and lower. Some small farmers still have them around. About 10 feet wide that a 8N can handle, however with a cultipacker behind I use a 3 plow tractor. Other brand in the 50's probably have similiar mechnical lift. I seeded Alfalfa- conseration mix thru the "small seed" 3rd hopper.

I have an old mechanicl lift 12 JD. In my soil/hill conditions it's too big for the N. My M handles it well.
