Thanks. It got too big and heavy to pull with my Cub Cadet. My Dad has better options to pull it with. I still have the other row unit as well. The other seed hopper had more significant damage. Maybe I'll get it repaired for next season.

Coon are a real problem here as well. I"m going to have to set up an electric fence. A number of years ago my father was attacked in the day time right in our yard. He got away without being touched, but it got within feet of him. Good thing, it had to of been rabid or something.

A lot of the corn will be given away to family and my cub scout familys. I'll probably give a fair amount to my pack. For the popcorn we can setup a small propane stove at some of the local events and pop it for a fund raiser or similar.

Ken, I see you are from Montana. That's a nice area. I have been to big sky. Stayed there for a few nights and drove around a bit and south into the park.

The bone pile of unused parts, and a 1 bottom plow. I should make a copy of that MF logo and place on the seed hopper.

You can see the assortment of seed plates I have available. I'm concerned that I don't have the proper size. Peaty easy to get two seeds in each cell. You can see the bright red sweet corn seed, the white popcorn and the blue hopi seed still in the bag.

Ideas or thoughts???

Have never used a pull behind seeder like your using. I have however
planted lots of miles of vegetables including corn with a walk behind
seeder. Has the same concept as yours. Different plates for different
size seed with spacing controlled with different gear configurations.
I have learned to live with the doubles especially with corn. It is a bit
of a pain but usually walk the rows after germination and pull the
doubles or cut em off with scissors. I would rather have doubles then
skips. Hand seeding empty spots drives me nuts.
All of that probably has little value in answering your question but
it gave me a chance to ramble.

Ken

No problem, I do my fair share of rambling from time to time as well. And your comments did help. I ran some sweet corn through and a lot of doubles and some triples. Did a bit more research and most folks running a planter like this are using a Deere or IHC planter.

The above site is the most helpful I have found. They sell some MF seed disks and lots of general information about selecting the proper disk. I have some disks with a square hole. I think I need to try those.

Got my first planting in. Ended up pulling the planter with the 756 Gasoline. I have room for 4 or 5 more plantings. Everything in the upside of the hill is my dad's field corn.

I figured I would wait a week or two before planting the popcorn. Freeze warning tonight.

Excellent pictures Mark. Thanks for sending them. Now one just has
to way for everything to germinate and see how the planting went.
Did your planter work the way you were hoping it would?

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
