Compact Seeder Useful For Small Landowners
With compact, all-in-one seeders you can plant a wildlife food plot or spread fertilizer on your lawn and garden easily even if you don’t own a tractor. The FPS48 Food Plot Seeder by Land Pride caught our attention because of its diversity and affordable price.
    “It’s meant for landowners looking for an economical way to put down some seed,” says Dee Warren, marketing manager for Land Pride. “It was primarily developed as a food plot tool, and it gets into tighter spaces than a drill or seeder.”
    The 48-in. wide, 510 lb. machine can be pulled by an ATV or small compact tractor with a clevis hitch or 2-in. receiver hitch. “The blades are 16-in. notched disc blades for more aggressive digging to break up packed soil,” Warren says. The 2-cu. ft. hopper is easy to fill at 42-in., and the spin spreader adjusts to broadcast from 4-ft. to 20-ft. Finally, a fluted roller/packer presses the seeds down for good soil contact.
    The Food Plot Seeder sells for just under $2,800, and is available through Kubota dealers.
    Customers use it to seed cover crops and grains, and to spread fertilizer, lime, gypsum and soil conditioners on lawns and gardens.
    “You can also take the spin spreader off, and with the addition of an optional extension tube, attach it to any vehicle with a 2-in. receiver hitch and use it to spread sand or salt in the winter,” Warren adds.
