Photo Van Brunt Plain High Wheel Drills Free Manual

Hi All,
I bought a manual that is for a Plain High Wheel Van Brunt Grain Drill. I've scanned it and anyone who wants a copy just email me and I'll send it out. It's 8 pages and I scanned it at a high resolution so it can be read so I'll send it one page at a time. I'd be interested in a copy of any manual for the Van Brunt John Deere grain drills with high wheels. I've bought a wooden wheeled JD VB grain drill with 16 seeders on 6" spacing and intend to plant 6 acres of hay come spring, first I need to do some work on the wheels.

Brad. I have been trying to determine how the tongue attached to my grain drill. Maybe your manual will help. Thanks. Wayne

Wayne,
The manual might help, it's the manual that they were to use to assemble it from the boxes/crates of parts it came in. I PM'ed you for the email address you want me to send it to.

I've a John Deere Van Brunt high wheel seeder on wooden wheels that has 16 seeders on 6" spacing and I'd really like a copy of the correct manual for it and the info that is under the lids for different types of seeds. My drill is just seed with a grass seed attchment, no fertilizer. I'll gladly pay for your time and trouble for a copy!!

Brad

Ok, an update on the grain drill manual: the good news- I picked up another manual with a lot more info that I am slowly scanning it's 44 pages. bad news A) Is I have such a slow internet speed that when trying to send the 8 page manual it often didn't go through. bad news B) So as soon as I get this one scanned I intend to put them on a cd and mail them to who ever wants them but to cover my costs, shipping and time I'll want $5.00 for it. Hope that's OK with everyone. As soon I'm ready to ship I'll post here to let everyone know.

I sure could use a printed manual as I have purchased a Van Brunt drill. I am planning on restoring and would welcome a manual.
Thanks Rick

Please send me a copy of the manual. I just got one from a family friend after doing some remodeling for them. They had no manual. What do you want in exchange?

Do you still have the manual available to email. I have a John Deere Van Brunt and am looking for information on the settings. If you could help me out, it would be greatly appreciated.

I would sure pay whatever your time is worth to either have a CD or email. Mine is an old steel wheeled drill but pretty similar. Does anyone have good photos of an original paint scheme? I can barely make out some lettering on the box but I must put a new lid on it so will have to repaint. Thanks, Aaron carriagebuilder@hotmail.com Let me know where to send the money!
