Thank you for the info but i thought it was an aerator setup that would seed after it plugged but i just realized the seed would need to be in the back. Thanks for all the help and good luck with your sale!

No problem "honeydopm". This machine is a power seeder. The "correct" way to aerate and seed is to run over lawn with a plug type aerator first (don't waste your time and your customers money with a spike aerator or Lowes/ Home Depot pull behind plugger). I run over lawn twice with quality plugger. Then come behind with a power/ slit seeder to seed lawn. The power seeder will cut slits about 1/4" to 3/8" deep which will give maximum germination. Pluggers are to reduce soil compaction, etc...not for seeding. This is key in my opinion and where many people go wrong. Many people will aerate, then use a broadcast spreader to seed thinking the seed will fall into plug and germinate. Problem with this is, seed will not germinate that deep in the ground. So your customer will not see good results for their money and will call me next time. Anyways, hope this helps.....any more q's, will be glad to help!!
