    I found one of these for sale locally and wanted some expert opinions.... is the machine is any good.... and what is it worth? I have a number of customers asking for overseeding this fall, so I had thought about buying a machine rather than renting. Thanks, Daniel

    Those were originally made by Olathe, then Toro bought the line and branded as Toro, that unit is probably from the early 90's, if you get the Serial # we could tell for sure.

    Parts could be an issue, due to age, and the fact it has been discontinued for over 10 years.

    Only worth what some one will pay, I would think about 1 or 2 days rental fees on a seeder is all I would pay for that, assuming it is totally functional.

    It is a good unit, but my big concern would be parts.

    Good luck.
