Toro currently offers two different models of slit seeders. The first model is an 18 inch mechanical slit seeder that works like a walk behind mower. This seeder has a large hopper mixer that drives seed delivery automatically with no need to turn off the flow when making turns. It is built with exceptionally strong steel but is also light weight weighing in at 170 pounds. The Toro 18 inch mechanical slit seeder has 9 verticutting blades that can slit 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep. The hopper can hold 25 pounds of seed, the working width is 18 inches and the machine is powered by a Honda engine.
The second model is a 20 inch hydraulic slit seeder. It works like a self propelled lawn mower and has the ability to go in forward or reverse. This Toro seeder is built out of 11 gauge steel with high carbon heat treated steel blades. The seed flow can be adjusted by moving the lever on the front of the machine. The Toro 20 inch hydraulic slit seeder is powered by a Subaru engine and can go 3 mph in forward and 2.2 mph in reverse. The seed hopper can hold 40 pounds of seed and the 10 verticutting blades can slit up to 1 inch deep. Call Trey Willis at 703 919 5291 for more information on our Toro slit seeders.
