After reading countless threads, I couldn't seem to find the answer I was looking for. I am looking for the all around best machine to aerate and seed. I am looking at two options: 1. buying a small compact tractor and putting a 1st products aeravator seeder on the machine. 2. L.T. rich z plug with slice seeder and or broadcast seeder (can anybody tell me whether the gandy slice seeder has better results than aerating and broadcast seeding?) Obviously the lt rich is a bit more cost effective, but the aeravator seems to make more sense. Has anybody put these two different setups up against each other?
