Anybody ever seen one of these planter test stands? I would like to find one with the Richmond Hopper. Pictures or information. I guess they were a dealership item and not to common. My email is: silverta16@yahoo.com Thanks all
Here is a picture:

Yep, we got framer's here that got their own seed meter's, they do some of the neigbor's too. But i had a No 58 IHC planter, 3.5 mph was about as fast i would plant, with out a monitor that was fast enough!

I remember Helm Bros of Elgin, Il. had one. Watched them check seed sizes to different plates. Theres had a small electric motor to drive it. It had a belt to catch and count the seeds. Seems that dad was in there several times every year checking his seed to plates. Over the years, I have owned two different ones for Minneapolis-Moline planters.Long gone now, clint

They have a table top one in the c-221/222 manual I think. Would be pretty cool, even got an extra hopper to build one someday. Now I just lift the planter and do my testing by spinning the rear planter wheel.

There was one on tractorshed for sale about a year ago somewhere in the Midwest. I should have bought it and I hope to find it again by posting here. It was a Richmond Hopper but an even earlier one with the boot style runner like a horse drawn planter. Those pictures are from a Girard Auction not long ago. I have a couple other pictures they made John Deere ones also might have been a company that made them for IH. I collect IH Cast iron seed plates and mainly want it to play with and to try out different plates. They have a conveyor belt that catches the dropped seed and shoots it in to a box or bucket.

Where did you find the picture? If more info or pictures were available I bet one could be made very easily!
