Spent most of the day with the old Van Brunt grain drill putting in spring wheat and oats, both with alfalfa. Was going to get the corn in, too, but the rain moved in quicker than planned. Not complaining a bit - it was truly 'heaven sent!'

Here's my TSC disc:



My job was to install all this in the ground:



Alfalfa loaded up and ready to go:



The originally-horse-drawn Van Brunt drill:

Brings back memories - had same setup back on the farm usually oats and different grasses (clover, timothy, alfalfa and even did birds foot trefoil one year) for hay. Used a McCormick reaper and binder + thrashing machine for the oats in late summer.

Mine must be just a bit newer, since box is metal, but otherwise they look just alike.

What is the story with the extra decal on the front grill? I have never seen one.

Jason, I don't know. Never noticed and I'm the second owner & knew the first all my life. I never knew him to do anything other than regular/general maintenance & it clearly has not been re-painted, so I haven't a clue about the 'extra' decal. As you no doubt know, it isn't there in the original Farmall manual pictures.

Thanks for taking the time to make the video Ed. Cool to see the old equipment still working. Great job. TJ

Thanks, and you're welcome. I'm no expert in any of this, but I know a picture is worth a thousand words, and I've been around here long enough to know the questions that regularly pop up from new-and-not-so-newbies. I figure a short video might be helpful to folks (especially the ones asking whether you can bale with an 8N Razz ).
