Anybody know the correct paint code for a very early 1940's Black Hawk planter. Next question, who sold the Black Hawk planter at that time? Thanks for any information. J.

The code I have is a PPG Delstar number. DAR44616. They were made by the Black Hawk Cultivator company in Bellevue Ohio. I don't know about the early ones, but if I know on the later ones on the right side of the main frame rail the year was stamped.

Remember, there was a Black Hawk planter built in Warerloo, Iowa. I don't know how many years they were built, but I have the advertising from about 1918 when they were being sold by Oliver. The big press wheels were two single wheels (2 on each side for a total of 4) mounted in a "V" fashion simular to the later John Deere's.

I want to thank you both for that information. It is not a corn planter per say. It is a single unit run by an electric motor that probably was used to demonstrate the finer points of the Black Hawk planter. I did some free vounteer work for the local ag department and got it for my payment several years ago. It was made by Ohio Cultivator in Bellevue. A man sent me a picture of one that is like this one except this one does not have the press wheel. The magazine was dated 1940.

I gave you the code for the green. I would think Co-op orange would be close enough for the orange. I have seen one of those before. If you have what I think you have, they were used to check plates to make sure you were using the correct plate for the see you were using. John Deere I know had something similar.

At that point in time, Ohio Cultivator was part of the National Farm Machinery Co-operative.

There is NO green paint on the unit, except for one small dent in the seed box I though about not painting it, but I need to remove that dent.
