I know this is the red forum and I'm red in the heart; however, I hit an early Christmas this year. Picked up a green 10' grain drill and a 14' field cultivator both for next to nothing price. Gonna put in about 5 acres of Sudan in the spring. So their green, the price was right.

Just put a Cresent wrench on the feed shaft to make sure the feed shat is loose, you maybe have already done that!!

A word to the wise. Most, if not all, drills/planters have some type of slip clutch on the mechanism. Old drills like that which have been sitting out can get stuck and cause rapid wear on drive line parts. Make sure you go all over it to make sure all is working properly and grease and oil as necessary. Look for missing springs, etc. Your first time around the field could be your last if you don't. If it starts and stops planting raise it up and pull into the shop. There is usually a reason you get something cheap. From the school of hard knocks...the voice of experience.

7" spacing? Seems more often than not JD is 7" instead of 6". I like the old John Deere running gears. At least JD seemed to make good wheel hubs if nothing else.

Think its actually called a quack digger. A cultivator is for cultivating between rows. Modern farmers call them feild cultivators but modern farming sucks. I'll use a quack digger, a harrow, or a vibra shank.

I should of said a field cultivator, But it wouldn't go deep and fast enough to kill quack [with the MD on the front] that thing will plug up, pretty easy!!

Today's Featured Article - Allis Chalmers ED40 - by Anthony West. Allis Chalmers as a tractor manufacturer in its own riht is but a memory. However the number of AC tractors still in existence today as either restored or unrestored examples is a testament to the quality of their products. This in itself is always apparent here in the U.K when attempting a purchase, as no matter what the model or condition the price will always be strong. ... [Read Article]
