I have seen 2 and 3 row planters at Amish farms that use newer row units (JD 7000 units?) on a tool bar made for horses. I do not know where you could find one other than to advise you to find an Amish machine shop.

Hi Neil,
Did you mean corn planters, grain drills or garden type planters?

Mike,

The planters that I saw and referred to are field crop row planters. Generally 2 rows, maybe 3. As I said, the row units are a newer style, although maybe still plates. The JD 7000 units (MaxEmerge) are probably technology from 30 years ago, instead of 90.
