Planet jr. seeder?
[Return to Topics]

help i have just been adopted by a Planet Jr. Seeder. It is all original down to the markings and the stickers. It has a little rust on the wheels. The previous owner remembers going with his dad to purchase it new. He is now in his 60's.
Can any one help me date this seeder? it is a model 300a. The only other number that i can see is K717 but i think this might be a part number. The fellow who gave it to me takes real good care of his stuff. He is an auto restorer. so he knows the value of taking care of antiques. any help can be sent to

Hello Dave. I live in eastern Oklahoma and have came upon the Jr. In processing restoration but the rod that moves the little flat plate over and away from the seed hole is missing. I,m a handy man and could make missing parts but need to know what they look like. As per your request about date of manufacture call Whites, Inc., Houston;. 800-231-9559. Good luck.

Noticed your comment and was wondering if you how any idea about how much the Planet Jr 300A is worth today. I have one that is in good condition and am thinking of selling it. Don't have a clue as to what I could get for it. Appreciate any info you can offer me.

I own an original 1919 Planet Jr plow that was build by S & L Allen & Co Inc., Philadelphia, PA USA Serial #167511. The plow still runs and has the following written on it: Marque Deposel M. RGTRDA No 17269 DE 8 Octobre 1919, Marca Defabrica. Can anyone tell me what it is worth because I and moving in the near future and want to sell it

Needing info. on Planet Jr. Seeder purchased around 1985. A elderly fella purchased the seeder new and had only used it once, took it apart and greased it all. He passed on & the seeder was never put back together. I would like to purchase the seeder, but the literature was miss placed. Is there any way to get the books for this seeder. It is tractor pulled, 2 row seeder with fertilizer, and was worth approx. $6000.00 then.

I think planet junior was purchased by someone in Sweden and are still in business. Check out a Johnnys Selected Seeds Catolog from Albion , Maine. They sell planet junior planters and they are pricey.

Dave, they are still in business and I bet they have a website. Check it out, go to and type in planet jr.

Muddy is right they were bought out by Powell Mfg.

They have some of the nicest people in customer service you ever talked to and they will send you operator and parts manuals for free. They don't even charge postage.

If you call them on the 800# or email your addy and equipment model info they will send it out asap.

I happen to know personally some of the Powells, and grew up and barned tobacco with one set of um. You're right, they are some of the nicest folks you'll ever want to know. I went to church with a bunch of their grandkids and their families for years. It's that southern blood, ya know ;-)
