Tom,and I were talking today about "ED" drills,and the discussion went too production,pretenneco buyout,factory? First,what was the production of the drills,has anyone seen a pre69 old logo "ED"? Any pics? What factory were they built at?
Was the "ED" all Case built? Tom and I thought it was?
My Dad was a diehard Case man,but never ordered a Case drill in,never.
Will enjoy any discussion
Maybe Tom will post his "ED"s so we get a idea,as we both only seen them with the tire track Case logo

I bought a ED drill new. Still have it. The seed metering drive gears all have the Case parts numbers,Txxxxx etc. They are the same as earlier Case drills. The bearing holders for the axle shafts have a Txxx number also. When I first got it I had a lot of trouble breaking the casting that holds the down pressure spring and disc opener. Tried to get them under warranty, but Case wouldn't honor the warranty as they were done building them. They had an upgrade of that casting and never broke any of the heavier ones. Seems I was told Case took some off the shelf parts and worked with another company to build the drill, possibly Great plains??

the set I have I am second owner on, I agree on all the Case casting,seed boxes/feed ect, my thoughts on them are this, Case had several things they were proud of at the "70" series Intro that I remember very well, this series drills and the double windrow header(shiftable draper) they had then on a model 856 windrower, it was on a Killberry power unit instead of Hesston made for grain applictions first then they told us it would be "beefed" for hay cutting the next year which never came as they dropped them with all harvesting equipment in 1970, we were told by our block man the hdr was in house built, I am sure it was sold to Killberry as they have a new version of it today, the "ED" drills I think were the same way as they were the only Case drills to have the cast aluminum feed cups instead of the cast units all previus Case drills had, if you look at a Kirshmen/Melroe/Lilliston drill they have many similar designs as the "ED" units and I always wondered if Case did not sell off the design to them I have no proof of this just a gut feeling, also our dealership never sold a Case drill but we did sell Kirshmen hoe drills not sur why I chose to type all this just felt the need I guess,,, by the way does any one have a ops manual for them they would sell??? cnt

I have an old Case drill that I have been thinking of restoring. I don't know what model it is. It is painted green. Boxes are in good shape, problem is all the discs are rusted away to nothing and it's going to be costly to buy new discs. I will post a photo of it when I get a chance.

Here's my end wheel drill Ande. Not a press drill like Nutty's but I'm sure its the same box. Sorry for poor photo. My internet is down so had to take a picture of my computer screen with my phone and send it that way.

Here's my hoe drill a bit older and obviously Case built.
What's interesting is the galvanized box was painted over and decaled from the factory. The wheels and decals are sand colored. Maybe one of the last Case built ????

Where did you find the end wheel drill? I bought my press drill in Plankinton SD. The neighbors bought 2 7' drills there also. The only other ones I knew of at the time had been sold at Huron Case Power and Equipment. They were sold out but I bought the walkway kit from them.

Mine came out of Canada. Gramps and Dad had Oliver JD and IH drills. Neighbors had IH JD or Melroe. Always wondered why Case didn't fare better with their drills. They seemed to do fine with tillage and hay equipment in the area but the planting equipment just didn't have a following.

Looking at the 1970 Buyers Guide I see the press drills were made only in 7' size. End wheel drills in 12'.
