Question A John Deere “WHAT is it”

A 4 foot (+/-) item was found at the “FLEA” market. It was dirty-stuck-but not broken . It has double right angle gearing with 1” drives on each end, and a rather long skip chain sprocket with a slip cog. Must be off a planter-spreader or ----- something. One of the castings has a JD H1810-B number on it. With all those gears and that sprocket, I just had to have it for $5 . Got it home, unstuck and in the shed. NOW-what is it and what can I use it for .

What you have there is the remains of the fertilizer attachment for a 2 row corn planter. # 290 I believe. It was mounted up slightly to the rear of the seed boxes and a bit higher.

^ I'm with Frank.
I had a 290 and that looks right.

Over the years we had both a #290 and a #490, both had that attachment. They were replaced by a pair of # 494 s. They were good reliable units, and a hell of a lot more reliable and cheaper to use than what we deal with today. Now I run a 12 row 7200 vac planter, so many parts to give trouble. But it does plant faster. Takes close to 200 hp to handle it in the hills. We pulled the old ones with a 44 Massey and a 350 Farmall.
