I just started managing a very small farm in southern california. We need a grain drill to seed our pasture, as right now we have 70 acres of dirt and are spending $16,000 a year on alfalfa to feed our sheep. We have about 20 pieces of old farm equipment on property, of which one is what appears to be a seed/grain drill. I have identified it using your manual archives (thank you!) as a 1945 Ferguson implement, but cannot figure out the model. On the body, it has NO 48353, which I assume is the serial number, and Type N-KO-21. The manual for this model in the archives is NOT what we have. Perhaps the previous owner pieced it together? I would like to clean it up and use it again, but we do not own a Ferguson tractor. Forgive me, I am new to doing this, but can we use another tractor?
