Classen Introduces New Hydro Overseeder

Classen introduces a new self-propelled overseeder designed to produce thicker turf quicker. The all-new Hydro Overseeder features a floating seed box that follows the contours of the terrain to drop 13 rows of seed in a 20-inch swath.

The Hydro Overseeder features a 40-pound capacity seed box that can either float for consistent seeding over bumpy and undulating terrain or lock in place at any of 10 depth settings for flat area, hill and slope seeding. It uses a Honda GX270 engine paired with the infinitely variable power flow of a Hydro-Gear T2 transmission, capable of operating at 3 mph forward and 1.5 mph in reverse. Heavy-duty 13” flotation turf tread tires provide traction while dispersing unit weight evenly to eliminate turf tearing and rutting. Blade engagement and single lever forward/reverse controls are located on the handles within easy reach. A seed dial with ten settings provides precise seed flow while a helpful seed drop flag (visible from the operator position) lets you know when seed is dropping and when it has stopped.
