Customer Reviews of the Hoss Garden Seeder

Purchased the HOSS seeder to plant beans and corn, the product worked flawlessly, perfect spacing and depth. So impressed with the product, I just purchased a wheel hoe and attachments. These tools make life easy.

Dale H. from LA   5 star rating

I bought the Hoss garden seeder with row marker and extra discs. It makes planting so much easier, just install proper disc for the seed you are planting, fill the hopper, set the depth, and go. I haven't had any problems yet, planted corn, beets, lettuce, and snow peas. This really saves my back, no more stooping over to plant the seeds and covering the row, the seeder does it all while you stand up and just roll the seeder. I researched seeders before ordering the Hoss, it had the best reviews for the money. Definitely recommend this product.

Tim H from MO   4.5 star rating

Really well built. It is hard to find this kind of quality anymore.

Oliver from FL   5 star rating

Love my new Hoss seeder, way better than the Earthway I used for the last 10 years, perfect companion for my Hoss Double Wheel Hoe. I look forward to many years of service for both, then handing them down to my grandkids, since they are heirloom quality.

Row Marker attachment

The Row Marker for this model can be adjusted for row spacings of 10" to 36" wide. It quickly moves from the right side to the left so you can keep planting one row after another, like when planting like sweet corn or other multi-row crops.

This video shows all the details.   Great way to see how it is constructed. He shows it from all angles, and explains how the seed plates work. It's a little long, but well worth watching his review.

Shows the loose fluffy soil this seeder can handle.   In this video they are planting a long bed of salad greens. This tilled soil is very loose and soft. Notice how deep his footprints are, and how the fine soil moves.

Optional Seed Plates

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 Garden Seeder.

  • #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.

  • #7 – radish, leek, asparagus, spinach (6 holes, 3/32” thick)
  • #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.

Seeder Specifications

This Hoss seeder is made the way things used to be: Strong, Simple, and Reliable. It is made with 18 pounds of steel. The only plastic parts are the collection of seed plates, and the hopper they fit into.

The handles are made by an Amish family business from Ash, and strong hardwood. Now you can buy a garden seeder online that you can pass down to the next generation of gardeners someday.

The supplied Seed plates 1 to 6 are 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 above.


Additional Details:

Some of the other highlights of this seeder design include the coulters, or disc opener, that it uses to create a furrow for the seeds. Check out the picture in the image gallery above.

This rotating disc mechanism pushes the soil down and apart, while seeds fall down through the steel tube that passes down between the back of the pair of discs. Its advantage over a shoe or plow style furrow opener is that it does not hook and drag along stringy decaying plant matter from the soil.

The depth of the furrow is controlled by turning a large knob located between the front wheel and the seed hopper.

There is also a kickstand on this model that keeps it standing upright while you are not using it.
