    I just picked up a land pride land pride os1548 slit seeder and a Mataway slit seeder from an on line auction ..................I was the ONLY bidder . The landpride goes new around $ 8500 and a new mataway is between $6000 and $ 7000. The guy said they both worked 2 years ago . They need a going over , some tire work and some grease . No big deal .

    Got the landpride for .........................$75.00
    Mataway .........................................$35.00
    Five hours round trip and 50 bucks in fuel

    Wow, what a deal on that equipment!! Nice!!

    I saw a Land Pride like that one a few months ago. It had less rust but it was also about $3,500 IIRC.
