so you can use it in the garden. If not a plow, maybe a sprinkler of some kind?
Is it for before planting, during planting or after planting?

Is it bright red with Massey Ferguson written on the side?

Ah - no, we've done that one.

How about a 2-dimensional rotovator?

(Don't lose patience - we'll get there. Let's see - its 2014 right now ...)

Ooh, oooh ... Are both wheels on the same axle?


No, they're not. I guess that it's an Earthway Precision Seeder, then.
I came to this conclusion after deep thought and extensive research, especially on your Photobucket thing.

i set 120m of swede last week (in about 20 mins...)

It comes with six plates that sow loads of different sized seeds from peas and beans down to carrots and lettuce

there are a further 5 plates available for other seed sizes also

it is fantasic
