Hoss Seeder Attachment

Seed in the Spring, then unbolt the planter attachment and put on a different attachment to weed or cultivate your rows the rest of the year. This planter is for normal and hard soils. But not for sandy soil or soils that get very fluffy when rototilled.

For those who already have a wheel hoe. This is only the attachment - you will need something to bolt it to.

This Hoss walk-behind planter is the strongest seeder on the market. And after planting, switch to a weeding or cultivating attachment to keep your garden rows clean for the rest of the season. It is all steel, with just a little plastic for the hopper and the seed plates.


Hoss Planter features...

  • Heavy duty steel construction
  • Very consistent seed spacing & rate
  • 1/4" to 1.5" adjustable planting depth
  • Seed plates 1 to 6 for common veggies like...

Large seeds (peas, beans, field corn, etc).   Medium seeds (sweet corn, okra, pelleted lettuce/carrots/beets, etc).   Small seeds (broccoli, cabbage, onion, turnips, etc).   For more details, see the Seed Plates tab below.


Be sure to watch the push planter videos halfway down the page.   If you would like to get a combo package that has a wheel hoe + seeder attachment + other weeding attachments, go here to see all our Push Planter packages.

Built to work in normal and hard soils. It will also handle soils that are a little crusty, like from after a rain. But it is NOT for fine sandy soils or soils that get very airy or fluffy after rototilling. (see our Garden Seeder instead for those rare soils)

 

Customer Reviews of the Hoss Seeding Attachment

"This is a great tool for your garden, if you have a garden it is a must. The planter is awesome, but it doesn't work well in soft tilled ground, so make sure you know which seeder you need. The hoe, cultivator and plow are awesome, already got my monies worth out of them. "

Doug, from KY  

"The Wheel Hoe seeder attachment is great. I almost spent as much time attaching the seeder to the wheel hoe as I did using it to plant a bunch of corn; neither of which took very long. Saved a lot of back pain! Not many double seeds and not many missed spots either. I highly recommend this seeder!"

Joe, in TN  

"Doesn't seem to work well in soft dirt."
*Note - his purchase was made before we created the large-wheeled Garden Seeder model for sandy and fluffy soils.

Tony, from AR  

"I ordered a Wheel Hoe planter attachment from EasyDigging after reviewing several models by various manufacturers. Once I found a model rugged enough for what I had in mind, I searched where to buy it. EasyDigging had the product and accessories on hand at a good price plus free shipping. I'm happy!"

Video from the Bayou Gardener.   Shows planting of okra and beans. Good details on setting up the planter, changing seed plates, and switching seeds. We recommend testing the seeder over a tray like he does in this video.

 


Video of garden seeder details.   Quick 1 minute video shows how the Hoss planter attaches to your wheel hoe. Good views of the construction and of the seed plate and hopper. Also shows the Row Marker in use.

Six seed plates for the most common garden crops are included with this seeder. They are listed as plates 1 through 6 below.

There are optional plates 7 to 10, and blank plates in three thicknesses, which are also described below.

Plates 1 through 6 are included with the Hoss seeder and with the Hoss Push Planter.

  • #1 – broccoli, cabbage, turnips, mustard and other fine seeds (8 holes, 3/32″ thick)
  • #2 – onion, similar small seeds (6 holes, 3/32” thick)
  • #3 – okra, and {pelleted* carrots, lettuce, chard and beets} (6 holes, 3/16” thick)
  • #4 – small sweet corn, popcorn (4 holes, 3/16” thick)
  • #5 – small peas and beans (6 holes, 1/4” thick)
  • #6 – medium beans, peas, large sweet corn, field corn (4 holes, 1/4” thick)

Plates 7 through 10 are optional plates. They can be purchased individually or as a set at the Seed Plate page.

  • #8 – cucumber, watermelon (2 holes, 3/32” thick)
  • #9 – butterbeans, lima beans (2 holes, 3/16” thick)
  • #10 – squash, pumpkin (1 hole, 3/16” thick)

There are Blank plates that you can drill for special seeds or spacing. They can be purchased the Seed Plate page.

  • Thin Blank Plate - 3/32" thick
  • Medium Blank Plate - 3/16" thick
  • Thick Blank Plate - 1/4" thick

*Note: These 4 seeds are pelleted to allow them to work in walk-behind seeders. Raw (non-pelleted) seeds for these 4 crops do not work well in ANY seeder.

This seed planter uses flat round seed plates that are 3/32", 3/16" or 1/4" thick for small, medium, and large seeds. Holes are drilled through these plates to create seed spacings ranging from 1-1/4" up to 19". The seed plate makes one revolution for every 19" of ground travel - so plate with 1 hole gives 19" spacing, 2 holes give 9.5" spacing, 3 holes give 6.3" spacing, etc.

Hoss Push Planter Mechanical Details

Some of the other highlights of this walk-behind planter design include the heavy-duty shoe type opener that it uses to create a furrow for the seeds. This shoe is like a narrow plow that pushes the soil up and apart, while seeds fall down through the steel tube that passes down between the back of the shoe opener. The depth of the furrow is controlled by the notched depth-control bar that rises above the wheel hoe's tool bar and sets just behind the front wheel. There is also a rear drive & compactor wheel that is toothed for good traction in firm soils. And lastly there is an optional Row Marker that is adjustable from 6" to 18" row spacing and easily flips from the left to the right.

If you do not already have a Hoss wheel hoe, visit this page to see all our Push Planter packages that combine a wheel hoe with a seeder attachment and other weeding or cultivating attachments to handle your garden chores from the beginning of the season to the end.


 

Why would I need a wheel hoe AND a planter?

If your garden is big enough to need a seed planter, then it is also big enough to benefit from having a wheel hoe. With the wheel hoe (also called a wheel cultivator) you can clean the garden in the Spring (even when too damp for a tiller), work in soil amendments, and prepare the seed bed. Later, after the planting is done, you can put it back to work keeping the rows weed free. There are attachments for the Hoss that range from Sweeps, to Plows, to a Disc Harrow, to Oscillating Hoes, to Straddle Weeders. If you don't know what all those are, start on our Attachments page.
