EarthWay Precision Garden Seeder, Model# 1001B
What a time (and back) saver
This product comes mostly assembled. It took all of 15 minutes from the box to the garden. My wife watched the assembly and announced that she could have done what I did. Very well built and extremely easy to use. My garden is very well tilled and this machine goes through the planting process like butter. The seeds are exactly where they need to be, depth, distance, etc. Once you have one straight row it is clear sailing after that. Anyone with a large garden, mine is 50' by 185'', should not be without this garden seeder.

Precision Garden Seeder
Very pleased with the new seeder. Saves time, easy on the back, no more bending and guessing at seed spacing. Good investment.

Definitely worth it. Makes planting the garden so much easier. It arrived quickly and just works great. Comes with different seed plates. Very light weight and easy to use.

I have used one of these planters for years. Have never had a seed that it could not plant. When not in use it hangs on a nail in my shed. Extra plates stored in side the seed hopper.

I Have owned and used several seeders over the last 30 years, but this EarthWay seeder is the very best, I have used or purchased. I bought one of these 25 years ago and loanded it to a neighbor. who unexpectedly expired, it was passed on to his son without my consent, So I purchased 2 very similar copies. but they were lousey, and when I ran across this same EARTHWAY, seeder that I had liked so much at Northern Tool, I was exstatic. I garden approx. 1/4 acre every year, and I just would,nt do it without this little baby. I can plant my 1/4 acre in just over an hour. I also have afew extra seed plates for good measure. this seeder digs the furrow, drops the seeds, covers them , & the wheels pack the soil over them. Great design, and easy to use too. what else could you ask for, and a good price to boot !! I also have the Earthway big wheel cultivator, & I love it too.

Seeder - Best time saver
I bought this seeder just in time to plant over 5000 sunflowers...thank God!!!! This was the best timesaving and back saving investment I could have made. Worked incredable well and my plants are all up and spaced just as I wanted them.

Great in well-prepared soil
We've enjoyed using this garden seeder this year. It has saved a lot of bending and it spaces the seeds well. The only bad side we've found is that in our rocky soil, we had to make sure the ground was well worked with the tiller before we used this. This wasn't a big deal as we usually tilled before making rows anyway. We look forward to many years with our seeder!

Using the garden seeder has been a god-send. Easy to use and it simplified the spacing of the seed as well as the rows. Saves torment from bad back and knees and all the usual bending. It also keeps my hands much cleaner. Saves an enormous amount of planting time as well.

Works good on prepared ground
Works good if ground is fine and well prepared, I had tilled cover crop under this year and found that the seeder would hangup on the stuff I had tilled under, other than that no problems. Seeding is much faster and I like that my rows and plant spacing is even now.

This works great and plants seed easily in a straight evenly space row. This was a lot faster than what I was doing before were I just trench a small row and drop the seed. The drag chain that is supposed to cover the seed does not do a great job, I had to go back over some of the seed with the rake.
