The need has come to start overseeding and reseeding some pastures and fields. Of course, doing so by hand is not an optimal way to go about doing this for such a large area.
I started by looking at the 3pt seeder options from the local farm stores. They wanted over 600 bucks for a model with a poly tank, which is ridiculous. I immediately turned to craigslist and found a lightly used, all metal, pto driven 3pt seeder for close to 300. Never had lime or fertilizer through it, and is minimally rusty (only surface rust on the spinner and bottom of the cone, which is expected). I picked it up today. Heres some quick pics- ill get more when I start using it. I still have some field prep to do first.
The only thing that's confusing is that there are 2 levers to control seed output. Anyone know whats up with that?
