R2 Rinaldi Drop Seeder / Spreader

Typical of all the tools we carry from R2 Rinaldi, this is a very well-built implement. This seeder / spreader is designed for seeding lawns, cover-crop, or other full-width dense seeding operations OR it can be used as a drop-spreader of granulated fertilizer or similar material. It features an expanded-mesh roller in the rear, which helps press the seed / fertilizer into the soil a bit and also drives the agitator shaft in the hopper via a no-slippage roller chain.

Drop orifices (holes) are fully adjustable in size (via a sliding shutter design) to accommodate a wide variety of seed/material sizes…we tested it with Buckwheat, which is a fairly irregular shape seed, and it performed extremely well. The hole “shutter” also closes quickly to allow transport of the machine without dropping material. It even has an adjustable full-width brush running over the top of the mesh-roller to keep it clean of dirt (which would then pick up seed).

Standard Drop hole plate makes seed “rows” about 1.25” apart, and we also offer optional drop-hole plates that make the “rows” further apart: 2.5” or 5”, if less dense plantings are desired.

Seeders are available in 29” or 39” widths. Fits all BCS & Grillo walk-behind tractors 8hp (or more) and with 4x10x18” (or larger) wheels and with differential drive. 30” size also available to fit behind the R2 30” power harrow. NOTE: when used in conjunction with the harrow, additional front-weight will have to be attached to the engine bumper, as the seeder and harrow combined add a LOT of weight to the rear of the machine. See our Tractor Accessories page for weights.

(Note: attaching this seeder to some tractor models may require removal of the tractor PTO shift lever, which comes off with one cotter pin…since this is not a PTO-driven implement, the lever is not needed for this implement anyway)
