Self Propelled Slit Seeder

Anyone know of a place that rents self propelled slit seeders?

Go to lesco.com and type in your zip code.
There are 3 of them over there.

You're going to slice seed now?
Why?

Why don't you just dormant seed over the existing turf?
Just mow the turf pretty low 1st, then broadcast.
The upcoming 'freeze and thaw' cycles will 'pull' the seed into contact with the soil (unless you're working with bluegrass and there's a REAL thatch problem).

I just finished a whole bunch of dormant seeding on soccer fields yesterday and today, just in time for the 'Alberta clipper' coming in tonight.

You just have to remember in the spring to delay the pre-emergent until the seed is all up and growing, or you can use 'Drive' herbicide as a good post emergent in seed job sites.

i've got a lawn that is getting kind of thin.... would you suggest the same for this lawn? just cut it low and broadcast the seed thick over it? whats the best kind of seed to put on it? the customer wont care what kind it is.... just something that will thicken the lawn up good.... she's talking about sodding it but i mentioned to her that we might try overseeding it first..... but i dont have much experience in this so any advice would be great.
