Sorry about no info on the planter. I use 4 John Deere planters mounted on
a draw bar. They're older than dirt. Each has a seed bin and changeable,
rotating plates in the bottom of the bin. The number and spacing of notches
on a plate determines plant spacing. Plant spacing can also be changed with
drive chains and sprockets.
