It is not intended for sandy or fine soils, or for immediate use in any soils that get really airey (expanded, puffed up, or fluffed up) right after being rototilled. For those rare soils, use our Big Wheel Garden Seeder instead.

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

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 type 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 it 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 it!"

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!"

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

  • #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)

  • #8 – cucumber, watermelon (2 holes, 3/32” thick)
  • #9 – butterbeans, lima beans (2 holes, 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.

Seeder Accessory Mechanical Details

One feature of this unit is the thick steel furrow opener. It is a "shoe" style opener the plows a thin cut for the seeds to drop down into. The seeds travel down through a long steel tube that fits into the rear of the furrow opener.

The planting depth of the seeds is set by using a notched selector handle at the front of the wheel hoe's tool bar. At the rear of the unit is a compactor wheel that is toothed for strong engagement in normal soils. This rear wheel drives a chain that rotates the seed plates in the hopper. When the units stops moving, the seed plate stops rotating.

The Row Marker is an optional accessory. It can mark the next row's location anywhere from 6" to 18" from the current row. It quickly flips or pivots from the left side to the right side, which lets you easily change the planting direction for each new row.

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 this seeder attachment PLUS other weeding and cultivating attachments to handle your garden chores from the beginning of the season to the end.


 

Why use a seeder attachment instead of a dedicated machine?

Mostly economics... If you have a big enough garden, and enough funds, to afford both a dedicated seeder AND a wheel hoe, then it can be helpful to have both. But for many gardeners, the small number of hours that they need a seeder makes it worth the little bit of extra time needed to bolt and unbolt a seeder attachment from a wheel hoe.

Being able to use all the other attachments (Plows, Disc Harrow, Oscillating Hoe, Sweeps, etc) is why many people use the Seeder Attachment instead of just getting a separate dedicated seeder.

You can see all available accessories here on the Hoss Attachments page.
