    we recently just got a jacobsen 548 seeder , works like a champ . the only draw back i can see is that even with the "optional" sprocket to get an additional 30% feed rate , it stil only puts down under 2lbs / 1000 . i usually like to go 8 to 10 lbs per 1000 . Most sports fields work. if anyone has gone through this and come up with the proper mod i would sure like to hear about it . i am thinking a smaller sprocket and shorter chain are in order .....
