Seeder Harrow
Cornish farmer and contractor John Phizacklea built a low-cost seeder harrow for patching grass in small fields where it might be tough to work with larger trailed equipment.
The harrow seeder mounts to the front-end loader, allowing him to lift it over hedges and fences when entering fields. Itís fitted with a pair of broadcast seeders above a gang of spring tine harrows. The seeders were originally powered by hand so Phizacklea removed the handles and fitted them with electric motors. Theyíre set to throw seed out front of the tractor in an overlapping pattern. If conditions allow, he can pull a roller behind the tractor to pack the ground after seeding.
