Ground-Drive Seeder Simple And Easy To Use
Ground-driven Greenscape seeders stand out for their simplicity in an industry that routinely adds technology, power and size to specialized equipment. In fact, the simplicity of design is a key and highly appreciated feature, suggests Andy Pearson, Belco Resources Equipment (BR-Equipment).
“We have sold Greenscape seeders all over the U.S. and Canada,” says Pearson. “Users tell us they like the rugged build, the ability to handle many different applications, and especially the simplicity.”
He adds that the heavy tubular frame construction and lack of pto driveshafts or gearboxes to maintain has made the seeder a favorite of dealers who rent out equipment.
“Our customers like that the Greenscape seeder is built right here in North Carolina,” says Pearson.
The seeders are available in 60 and 84-in. widths. The 60-in. model requires only 35 hp., while the 84-in. model requires 50 hp.
The Greenscape prepares the soil, and drops and lightly covers the seed before firmly pressing the seedbed. The ground-driven seeder, with its broadcast seed delivery, eliminates rows produced by drills.
With its broad array of options, the Greenscape can be set up to seed everything from lawns and food plots to pastures and fields. Options include large grass seed boxes, small seed and native seed boxes, a legume seed box, and a fertilizer box. Seeders can be equipped with 1, 2 or 3 boxes to handle any combination of seed sizes or types.
A variety of ground contact options ensure good seed-to-soil contact. They can be used with or without the seed or fertilizer boxes being engaged, if additional ground preparation is needed.
Applications include primary seeding, overseeding, applying fertilizer or lime, aerating and dethatching.
The combination of 3-pt. hitch and ground driver simplifies seed delivery shutoff. Simply lift the machine and the seed stops flowing.
While the numerous attachments make every seeder a near-custom order, Pearson says the 2 models with a large grass seed box and the legume seed box are the most popular designs. This version of the 60-in. model is priced at $9,435. The 2 versions of the 84-in. Greenscape are priced at $13,525.
