Default Re-seeding and aerating the fast way

I was reseeding hay fields Sat morning. I had a little seed left over so I decided to do my yard. Lets just say I had to drop down a gear and not turn around real fast so I didn't dig any holes. It has been incredibly dry here so tractor tacks were not a problem. In places the drill was having trouble getting the coulters in, they do a nice job aerating.

So, you want alfalfa and clover in your lawn.
I'm trying to get rid of it, and you're planting it...

Like it!

I have been looking for a small heavy no till seeding implement for a while to do the same. No one around me has one to rent. The food plot industry makes them but too pricey. Would love to rent something my 4 wheeler can pull. My lawn in some ares is nearly all weeds.

Try your local FSA ( Farm service agency)
Ours has a small & larger tye drill for inter seeding.
They loan it out, don't know the cost, I've never needed it.

We grow fescue for horse hay. Not much market here for alfalfa (no dairies left), most folks prefer orchard grass for horses.

Oh sure, makes sense now. I was wondering, what the hecks he want that in the lawn for.
When someone here says "hay", I'm thinking the alfalfa/clover mixtures around here, that the farmers plant. We used to mix Timothy in with ours for the beef cattles hay.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
