Hoss Seeder

Postby Farmall100kid » Wed Oct 17, 2012 7:48 pm

Anybody tried the hoss seeder yet? I've been looking at getting a hand seeder and this one seems to be well built for the price. I would love to have a cole planet jr. but they are a little out of my price range :shock: at least when they are least new.

I use an Earthwasy for most of my planting. You can find them at most hardware or garden stores.

Looking at the pictures and reviews, the Hoss seeder looks like a great rig, but at $160 for the seeder, then you have to have the wheel hoe to attach it to, it can get a little pricey unless you are planting a very large garden.

About 2 years ago I bought an Earthway seeder to rep;ace the older similar one I had. I don't remember the brand of my previous one, but it was very similar to the Earthway, but the Earthway had several improvements. The seed hopper is designed so it does a better job of feeding the seed when it gets to a low level than my old one did.

I had looked at the earthway but was not sure about the belt. Do you ever have and trouble with the belt slipping?

I have had mine for about eight years and never had a problem with the belt slippng. It may be differetnt if I was walking 20 mph but at a normal walk it works just fine.

My Earthway I have only had a couple of years, but the similar one I had for 10 or 15 years had the same belt setup and never gave any trouble .
