MTD PRO / LESCO Lawn Renovator Pros/Cons


Gulf Shores, AL
This weekend, I had an opportunity to demo the MTDPRO overseeder / Lawn renovator. This is basically the same machine from Lesco. The Lesco had an 8 hp Honda while the MDTPRO had an 8 hp Kawasaki. The machine I used had been driven hard and put away wet by prior demo users.

I over seeded two properties and the machine worked like a charm. I really liked the way it dethatched and renovated the soil and the even seed distribution. The machine did a great nice job.

I would appreciate comments if y'all may own this machine or similar. I really need one of these in my inventory.

They are nice BUT on the big money renovations(brand new construction with uneven soil) I found it to work fair at best. But it is an awesome machine even on slopes as long as it isn't bumpy. Also you can use less seed (read...more $$$ for you) since the seed to soil contact is optimal.
