Description

The APS15 Series All Purpose Seeders are excellent combination planting and cultivation tools for golf courses, school systems, municipalities, rental yards, construction companies, sports fields, and college campuses. Their narrower widths make them effective in seeding applications on residential lots, grassy medians, or rights-of-way adjacent to sidewalks, community parks, sporting facilities, and golf courses. Unlike wider seeder models, these units will do a more effective job of planting in areas where undulations, moguls, and depressions are prevalent.

The seed box is equipped with our standard fluted seed cups and an agitator, enabling highly accurate and uniform delivery of most turf grass seeds as well as a wide variety of other seeds ranging from alfalfa to peas. The spiked front rollers can be adjusted for more or less “crab-action" cultivation making them ideal for opening up and planting in hard or thatchy soil profiles.
