I have a project of getting an old brillion seeder up and running. I had an idea of eliminating the old ground drive system and running with a hydraulic motor controlled by a monitor. Does anybody have any suggestions on what may work for a monitor. I am thinking of something that no longer meets the modern farming demands and could be purchased reasonable. Our tractor is new enough to give mph signal so that should be simple. If i fab up a motor drive and feed back signal i just need monitor that will control a valve that runs my hydraulic motor.

This seeder is very old and we plan to go over a few acres. I thought that we may have less problems driving it hydraulic. We have another one that has already broke a chain. I know there are ground conditions and operators and maintance to consider when something breaks. I just like to noodle on some what if ideas.

If your looking to sell a part off of that old one I would be interested. The right had casting that holds the packers broke on me. I welded it up and its holding just fine, but I if I could get a spare that would nice to.
