    Take your pickup, Put a salt spreader on the tailgate , put seed and 1 helper in the bed and away you go.....13 acres no problem (of course you may have to modify the salt spreader so as not to dump seed to fast or too slow but that is a simple mod.

    Find a local farmer with a 10' grass seeder. Rent a small tractor, do the prep work, rent the seeder from the farmer, and seed it. I would do it for about $1000/ac and have it done a day!
