I_H Puller. the model 56 runs off of a type one hydraulic ram. When you lift the seeder for the first time there should be a couple of steelstraps bolted through the frame to keep the seeders up when in storage. You will need to raise the planter with the hydraulics and then remove these straps so you can lower it all the way( between the fertilizer boxes). The planter has markers which you undo and let down( unhook the chains) One will go down the other will remain upright until you drop and raise the planter then the chain will reverse and the opposite marker will remain upright. You will need to connect the drive chains on the axles, one on each side and flip the tighteners back. Now the planter will be ready to sow as soon as you drop it into the ground. Any utility tractor with a remote to raise and lower the planter will work. You can move along at a good speed. I don't sow fertilizer with mine, I use a spreader. You can adjust the depth you are sowing at by pulling the pin on the seeder and moving it up or down the series of holes keeping all four seeders set at the same hole. My old 56 works well and I use it to sow sweet corn. I never had a manual and a friend lent me his so I photocopied it but I think your Case I-h dealer can still get you a copy. Incidentally I bought mine at a farm sale and I gave $350CDN for it, was one other guy seemed to want it badly. It is in good shape but needs new shafts in the fertilizer boxes. I'd rather use my 3point hitch spreader anyway. Good luck from Mike in Exeter Ontario
