EarthWay Precision Garden Seeder, Model# 1001B
I like the product and tried it for some fall planting. Beets, spinach, and turnips. the thing I noticed is the land has to be very smooth and clean or it is hard to keep straight. and the depth of which you plant needs to be paid attention to.

This is 1st time I used a planter like this --I need a lot more experience--I got about 40% stand it seemed to me like a very light and fragile piece of equiptment--next year I will only try it on about a third of my garden --I do have a lot of plates and the special cucumber plate--I guess I was lucky on the poor stand because the cucumbers and pumpkins are doing well being space so far apart.

This tool is the bomb for making a straight line and looking like a pro.

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.
