I've been looking at a reproduction Planet Jr wheel hoe in the Lehman's catalog for years, but the price has always kept me from buying one.
Well, got lucky yesterday and found an original Planet Jr in working condition at a flea market for next-to-nothing.
Anybody have any hints on accessories that are worthwhile getting? It came with the cultivator, but the hoe blades look useful since I'm always a couple of weeks behind the weeds...anybody have any experience with it? It really does push easier than my hi-wheel cultivator, so I think I'll be using it quite a bit.
Also, I know I can get parts and an owner's manual thru Lehman's, but I'd like to paint up this old tool so it looks original. Anybody know the paint scheme...looks like green with maybe red trim?
