I picked one up, and would like to know what model it is. It has wood sides, ground drive, 18"tires, tractor drawn with some goofy jack setup, and the box measures 17"x40"x120". The metal is green, what other colors would it be?

Oliver made two ground drives. The 11A was a 50 bushel and the 170 was 90 bushel. With 10'
sides your's is probably the 170. Chuck

Does it say Oliver on the side or does it say Oliver Superior?

The measurements you give are close to a model 7AW, or most likely a model 17.

The spreaders that were green and built in 1954 and earlier had a red hitch and red wheels.

The spreaders that were built in 1955 to 1958 were all green.

The spreaders built 1959 and later were green with white wheels.The above dates are approx.,but close.

Don't complain about "some goofy jack set up" until you have tried it. If its all there including the hitch pin with a rod sticking straight up, it is the slickest way to hook up any spreader I know of.. You hook up with out getting off the tractor.

To each his own I guess.

Thanks for the help. I don't know what it said on te side, but I'm guessing it just said "Oliver". I wasn't complaining about the jack setup, It works a boat load better than the stupid crank jack on my junk deere, I just called it goofy because I had to take some years to come up with a design like that. I pulled this one out of the woods just like me Deere model R and New Idea 14A. Let me take a tire off and see what color the rims were. Does anybody have any pictures?

I can remember in the 1940's my father had an Oliver spreader, tractor drawn, yellow, said Oliver Superior on the side. It was all metal, can't say the size of tires but they were bigger than a car or small truck tire. It had the "goofy" hitch with the rod on the pin. It had a trip mechanism when you pulled the rope and back-up with a jerk it would lower the stand to the ground to support the front of the spreader. pull the pin with the rod and drive away. Reverse the operation to hook up and away you went. Traded for a PTO spreader in the 50's because the ground driven wheels would slide on slick or muddy ground during unloading a heavy load. I believe there was one advertised in Photo Ads sometime this summer that resembled my Dad's.
