Tractor 3pt Overseeders

Hey guys

Just wondering who is using tractor overseeding implements..I see places renting out alot of the Ryan/Blue Bird type overseeders but not alot of people around using the tow behind type.

Of those using the tow behind type, are you having as good of luck as when you used the self propelled models??

Tx in advance!

I use a 3 pt hitch spreader that is PTO driven on my tractor to put out fertilize on my pastures or on various crops that I plant and to put out rhye, wheat and pea seeds on foodplots.

I think mine is a Euro-Spread, there all about the same, some spread a little better one way than the other, the trick in my opinion is getting used to setting it for whatever seed you are wanting to spread, I have had much better luck mixing small grass type seed with fertilizer so you get a much better coverage, hope this helps.
