Planet Jr. Wheeled Seeder

2013.36.1 (RS219779)

Description

Planet Jr. wheeled seeder. Small metal seed hopper, painted green attached to a larger front wheel with two wooden arms. As the front wheel turns the seed drops out of the bottom of the hopper. As the seed drops through the hole the metal shoe opens a furrow for the seed to fall into. The back pair of blades push the dirt over seed, and the back wheel packs the dirt over the seed.
