Description
Seed Planter or Seed Sower - Planet Junior - green tin seed canister sitting on top of a seed distributor. At the front of the unit is a solid metal V-shaped protrusion which creates a furrow. The seed distributor drops the seed at spaced intervals. A slightly inverted set of metal wheels behind the distributor covers the furrow thus planting the seed. An attachment on the front connects the unit to a tractor or some other method of transport.
Two wooden handles for Planet Jr. Seeder All Wheel Hoes. At one end of each handle is a metal mounting plated bolted on the lower end. There is a hole through each handle 220 mm from the top in order to hold a spreader bar.
