I just recently purchased a MM Grain Drill. It is probably one of the last ones MM built. It has been kept in a shed and is in good working condition. The paint is good and the decals are also good. I would like to know where I might find and operators manual and owners manual or parts book for this drill. The flow chart on the underneath side of the lid says the settings are for K1, K2 & K3. I don't know if that is the model number or not. I do have the serial # however I couldn't make out the model number on the tag. If anyone can help me find out anything on it I would greatly appreciate it. It is on rubber tires. I am going to guess it is from the late 60's or early 70's.

Sincerely,
Damon Cates

Damon, Could you post a picture? What is the drop spacing? In another message, you said you had the serial #, could yoiu post it as well? I may be able to help with the manuals, if not Ebay seems to have an ongoing supply, maybe we can figure out what your model # is. Thanks, John

John. Thanks for responding to my message. I am not sure how to post pictures. But if you can give me some directions I will try to get some up this weekend. Here is all the information I can find on the drill.

Serial # 25901-198
7" Drop Spacing
Manufactured by Kirschmann Manufacturing Co. in Bismark N.D.

I tried again to see the Model No.. It looks to be MMP-O. I don't know if that is even close to right. I don't know if it is an O or a 0. It could just be MMP. I can't say for sure about any of the Model No. I saw alot of Manuals for a P Model on ebay but they all looked to be on steel wheels and didn't look like mine at all. Thanks again for your time in trying to help me.

Sincerely,
Damon Cates

That is the last drill MM sold which was the same as Oliver. I think I have some extra literature if interested. The genuine MM drills were all galvinized with P Gold iron and red wheels.

Think the last drills were model P-90, red with gold lids and rims. There was literature about them on e-bay last week. Also, I had an older MM drill with a galvanized box and red and green frame and wheels. No telling how many different models of drill MM built.

Thank you to MMDEL and Richard for responding to my message. Your description is my MM Drill. It has a golden galvanized hopper, some of the frame is gold and the wheels are red. The springs on the coulters are also red. I looked on ebay last week but those drills were all on steel wheels. I will look again. Thanks to both for your help. And please if you know anywhere else I may be able to get literature please let me know. Also do you know anywhere I can get parts. The drill is in excellent shape and I don't need any parts at this time but would like to know if any parts are available and where for future use.

Sincerely,
Damon Cates

I dont know how much different yours is from my dads besides his is older one on steel wheels and still used every spring.
My dads MM drill is an 11 ft with grass seeder. i don't remember off the top of my head but i think his is a p-3 or p-6 model. I can look later and let you know.
