Spreader Ideal For Wet Soil Seeding

Dave Herd thinks his Wet Land Wonder will be a hot product this spring due to all the rain and snow the Midwest has received this winter. There will be a lot of wet fields come spring and that's where his new high-flotation broadcast spreader can help. Its 750-lb., 9.6-bu. hopper can be used to broadcast everything from soybeans to brome grass and clover as well as any type of dry fertilizer.
Designed to be pulled by an ATV, the spinner-spreader is powered by a Honda motor mounted on front of the four-wheel trailer. The rig has a 28-ft. spread with clover and a 36-ft. spread with fertilizer. Herd says the four-wheel flotation tires keep the spreader from doglegging on hillsides and won't put pressure on the ATV hitch like a two-wheel trailer does. Suggested list price from Herd Seeder Co. is $4,175.
