I spent a lot of hours on a John Deere 999 planter behind Dad's Allis B. My brother and I took turns driving the tractor and riding the planter. We kept after Dad to get a more modern planter, but he never would. Hos answer was always the same, " I have to feed both of you, you might as well both work." Our planter monitor at night was a flashlight aimed at the drop tubes. You could plant 10 acres a day pretty easily, depending on whether you were applying fertilizer and how much. At any very high rate of fertilizer the small capacity of the planter meant refilling pretty frequently which slowed things down a lot. In the days of 38" rows we raised some pretty respectable corn with the old planter. It was shared with my uncle, who had a son to ride it too. I have no idea whatever happened to it.
