    Check out a Lesco Renovator. Sometimes you can find them used on Ebay.

    Ryan makes a rwally nice one, but it is $$$ and a bear to operate. The Lesco is a very nice machine for a good price.

    The walk behind slit seeders we use are Ryan Mataway’s and Lesco Renovator’s.The Lesco is easier to use and carrys a smaller price tag then does the Ryan. The Lesco does hills a lot better then the Ryan,the Ryan can be totally useless on anything but flat terrain. The Ryan does a first class excellent job, feeds the seeds through tubes to discs that in turn plant the seed into the slit,achieves excellent germination rates. The Ryan is just a bear for employees to operate. The Lesco is much easier to operate then the Ryan, is hydro driven, has Power reverse, fixed blades that slice as seed is cut into the soil. The renovator also has a back brush that drags loose soil over the slice seedbed, very good seeder. The Lesco delivers a perfect, even distribution we always get excellent germination rates.
