    If you had a choice between a used Classen TS-20 and a Bluebird S22 which would you choose and why?

    The design of the Classen seems more intuative to good seed to soil contact, but maybe the folks at bluebird know something I don't. Both units are in good shape and are selling for about the same price.

    My purpose for the unit is mainly for overseeding after landscape/hardscape installs but I'd like it to be a multipurpose unit for dethatching/power raking for those times when I need it (spring cleanups could use a power rake sometimes). Both mfg claim that can be easily converted for raking/de-thatching. Are those claims acurate is it just window-dressing?

    I have Bluebirds S22 seeder and it does a good job and I like it better than the Classen seeder. I bought mine from www.alamia.com $1,150.00 and free shipping. I have done two jobs with it so far this spring and made more than double what I paid for it.
