Have you seen one a Turf Shaper

This my Turf Shaper made by Lely
Bought this new in 1981 for 10k
Bad thing they dont make them no more If it breaks We rebuild it
it stirs the dirt /levels and seed at same time
I can run 3 different ways and will make lawn smooth and level with 2-3'' seed bed

Just noticed this from almost a year ago. Didn't mean to ignore you. No I don't think I have seen on in person (may have on a golf course). You and I talked about this in another thread once where you posted some photos also. I think it looks great! I think more of Harley Rakes than you do but that is another matter. I know you have been getting fantastic results for many years. Nothing to argue with there. Keep that baby running!

Yes Trying to keep it going
I bid on a new Lawn install There was 2 of us bidding and the other company Told the customer would give a demo what he use to prepare the dirt for seed
Customer ask me bring mine So he can compare
So I was willing for side x side action bad thing I got there same time the other company.
He wouldn't unload his Harley rake I demo my Turf Shaper to the customer
The other guy left think he was mad
I still like to do a side x side with Harley rake

Not even close Landpride turf seeder is a seeder like a drill or slit seeder It doesn't stirs the dirt Tomorrow evening I'll get pics of the underside
There 8 tine holders holding 2 tines 12'' long tines stirs like a blender one goes one way and next turns the other way
