The PSN2096 Primary Seeder is the ideal tool for landscapers, sod farmers, grain farmers or highway reclamation workers. You can seed alfalfa, nearly all types of native grass, and most types of turf grass with this seeder. If the majority of your seeding is done with native grass or “fluffy” seeds like Big Blue Stem, Indian Grass, or Side Oats Grama, the main seedbox on the PSN2096 is equipped with an aggressive picker-wheel feed design to keep seed moving and allows for consistent seeding rates.
By utilizing smaller bushel boxes added to the main box, it is possible to seed three different types of seed at different rates. A 4.8 bushel box can be added to the Native Grass Box and is equipped with our standard fluted seed cups and agitation to seed most turf type grasses, as well as a variety of other seeds from peas to alfalfa. An optional Small Seeds Box can be used for seeds such as alfalfa, clover, and other types of small seeds.
