aeraseederwebWith three models to choose from, REIST Industries has all overseeding
and aerating applications covered with its AeraSeeder line.

The 24SP, 4, 6 and 8’ AeraSeeder models are simple, yet durable machines for professional landscapers and ground maintenance crews. These machines can quickly cover golf greens, playing fields, cemeteries and other grounds keeping applications. They are also easy to operate, making them ideal for rental applications.

At only 34” wide, the 24SP self-propelled machine is able to fit through a backyard gate. It specializes in overseeding hard to get at places with a seeding width of 24”. The multi-spiked roller produces approximately 800 perforations per square yard, effectively saturating the top surface with a network of holes. This network, combined with its stainless steel seed apertures, brush and a smooth packing roller system, provides a high percentage in grass seed germination.

A 2-in-1 implement
The REIST Industries’ aerators and overseeders are dynamic two-in-one tools for professional ground maintenance crews. Ranging from 4 to 6 and 8’ models, the tandem rollers oscillate 30° which allows good ground contact through the roller pivot plate terrain adjustment mechanism. They are mounted with one inch diameter bearings, for long, trouble free operation.

The cone shaped spikes are one and a half inches long. Due to their unique taper design, the spikes do not lift the ground during aeration but leave a constant hole pattern resulting in even seeding. The double spike roller can make more than 1700 perforations per square yard.

The overseeder was designed with efficiency and performance in mind. The internal agitator assembly delivers a smooth, constant working action for steady seed flow. Seed rate control is achieved through an innovative locking knob adjustment control which delivers a quick and positive seed drop, allowing for maximum seed spread accuracy. The seed flow is controlled by the operator, through a manual lever or a hydraulic actuator on the 6’ & 8’ models. Brackets are included for easy addition of ballast weights.

User friendly features
The 24SP is powered by a 5.5 Honda gasoline engine coupled to a Eaton Hydrostatic Drive. It features a smooth packing roller system, a cam adjusted seed gate, user friendly controls and quick release wheels. Measuring 48” in length by 34” wide and 40” high, it has a 1.25 bushel seed box capacity and a ground speed of 0 to 5 mph.

The REIST Industries’ 4’ AeraSeeder comes with a CAT I hitch and has a seeding width of 44” and a weight of 460 lbs. The REIST Industries’ 6’ AeraSeeder model comes with a CAT I and CAT II hitch and has a seeding width of 72” and a weight of 1185 lbs. The REIST Industries’ 8’ AeraSeeder also comes with a CAT I and CAT II hitch and has a seeding width of 96” and weighs 1400 lbs.
