Planet Jr
Planet Jr No 35 seeder seed  dial
Planet Jr No. 35 seeder with unusual modification.  The previous owner had attached a single handle to the front of the planter, apparently walking backwards and pulling it. This likely necessitated the addition of the sheet metal cleats bolted to the wheel. The cleats can easily be removed, leaving only small bolt holes in the wheel.  The illustration above showing the seeder mounted on a single wheel hoe is for reference only. The hoe is not included.
The planter can also be used with a single handle mounted on the bracket provided on the rear of the casting.

Planet Jr No 220 fertilizer spreader in very good user condition. The distributors can be adjusted for width of spread and the feed rate adjusted from 200 to 2000 lbs per acre. A lever on the handle throws the machine in and out of gear. I don't use fertilizer, but I have used this several times to spread lime. The hopper holds one bushel.

Rolling garden seat on steel wheels

Harvesting box attached to the rolling garden seat
the no-bend garden harvester
garden seat
The 18" steel wheels are from my retired John Deere 290 corn planter, no longer needed for planting sunflowers.  The seat is a comfortable 14" high, making it easy to scoot down the row while weeding one side of two rows. The wheels are 7" wide and allowing room for your feet on each side, it is ideal for weeding 24" rows without having to stretch. The galvanized box can be lined with a grocery bag for harvesting beans or other produce. At the end of each row, you will have to pick up one end and turn it around to enter the next row. This requires a little space at the end of the rows. The seat is 64" long...................................$200 (local pickup) 

Note: Many of the larger items above are for pickup only. If you use a shipper, we can arrange to be home to meet them. However, a tractor trailer cannot negotiate our long lane. For smaller items, shipping will be the actual cost, based on your zip code. Some smaller items will fit in the Priority flat rate boxes. Also, I can refer you to a local shipper who makes frequent trips to NYC and as far west as Ohio. Storage at this end for as long as you need is no problem. Our zip code is 21787.
