Default 2-row corn/bean planter for ATV?

Anyone know of a place that sells cut down JD "pull-behind" 2-row corn/bean planters for use with an ATV? I'm willing to drive within a few states of Ohio to purchase one and pick it up with my truck. Any input?

Thanks.

Thanks for the help. I'm looking to spend definitely less than $1,000 for one. I like the looks of that JD 290 on craigslist. Think it will pull fine behind my Suzuki Vinson 500? Is that planter one that works only with the ground already worked, or is it a seed drill type model? I don't ever till my ground (in the past I have planted by hand using no-till method), but I do kill the sod/weeds with gly ahead of time, so the ground will be easy to work. I also saw some cut down JD 71 flex planter models on e-bay. Anyone have experience with those? Those look pretty nifty, and light.

Default The John Deere Model 71's are good too.

Each unit is ground driven and they work very well. You can get a multitude of different seed plates for them to plant a variety of different sized seeds, not just corn & soybeans. Mine are attached to a 3 point hitch tool bar, used on a tractor. If these units are set up to be pulled behind a 4 wheeler, like an old JD model 290, then they will be just fine with worked up ground. No tilling with these can be done, if the ground is soft enough.
