Last week I went to an auction and dropped out at $65.00 on a seeder. Today, I got a better one all set up for a 3-pt hitch and a top link plus the instruction/seeding chart/parts list with all the hardware for $50.00. Can't wait to try it. Must have been my day.

They had one wagon with a couple of pieces made up for a top-link hook up, like you'd have on a carry all. They put them with some other stuff and it sold for $5.00. I bought the two pieces I wanted from the bidder for $2.00 and he got a deal on what he wanted. A good day for both.

Good show for you!!!!!!!

glad you got one and at a good price.

hope yours works as well as my little Garber Seeder does.

however, most times i go to a sale it seems people pay up to twice the price for old stuff.

most time, there are few true bargains, but it appears you got one.

again, good for you,

wish i had you bid on a 3 pt hitch post hole digger for me, it appears those things, both new and used are made out of some type rare metal.

Can you elaborate on what exactly you mean by Cyclone seeder? I had one several years ago, but it was not much more than a canvas sack with a shoulder strap and a hand crank. You literally wore it. I can't understand how the Cyclone seeder company would make a three point hitch model out of canvas.

Matt;

The Cyclone seeder is a galvanized rectangular box that tapers in the bottom. One end bolts to the draw bar and the other is either attached to a top-ling or rods are bolted to the fenders for stability. A female end slides over the PTO and a bolt is run through a hole in the PTO shaft. That turns the metal thrower. Holds may be 100 pounds of fert or seed. Hope that helps.

I had one rigged up for mounting on Atv rack and hitch. I ruined it by using it for fertilizer. Would love to have another but have never found one. Be thankful I wasn't at that action . I would have gone to 150.

I have one for several years now, got it at an auction. Have hated to put fert in it, but I have 600 lbs extra starter left over this year. Was talking myself into just using it for that....

Now you just talked me out of it again. :)

Thanks.

I was picturing the same thing. I have borrowed one of those canvas ones from a friend twice for a little lawn work.

after using my seeder for fert.

i always give it a good washing, then pour about qt of used oil in it and soak all moving parts

it is stored in the barn, set up on blocks, so far each year its always ready to go.

i have an easyflow fert spreader but its 12 ft wide and takes hours to clean and oil.
too much work for my little corn patch.

Gordo;

You would have won, although I was prepared to go $120.00. I about jumped up and down when the gavel fell at $50.00. I guess most guys were interested in the tractor collection.

I got one I use for fert a couple of times a year. I wash it good, throw some oil on it here and there, and store it OUTSIDE upsidedown. to let the weather wash it off. I have had it since 1990 and its still in good shape.

OK..!!!
The ones we use have always had a Crank and a Canvas bog on top for the seed....
I have to think it is the same thing..!

I do have one Metal one but it is heavier and not as easy to use either....

Here's mine. The flex shaft has 2 allen head set screws clamping it down to the PTO. The later models had 12V motors turning the deflector. I found a NOS speed control for one. If the flex shaft on mine ever fails, I'm going to put a motor on it. Like others, I've used it to broadcast fertilizer and pellet lime. I hosed it down, then sprayed oil on it till next use. It's not rusting. Mark
