Now the bad news: the Classen used to be imported into the UK by PLM Power Products of Tiverton (formerly of Staffordshire), but I am told that shipping prices have made this venture prohibitive. You may be able to pick one up second hand, but I’m doubtful. A better bet would be to contact the manufacturer, US-based Little Wonder. Try looking at www.littlewonder.com.
There are other pedestrian seeders available in the UK, but not many. Sisis recently stopped manufacturing the pedestrian-operated Auto-Seeder. However, BLEC offers the Uni-Seeder — a 61cm hydrostatic-drive machine for overseeding — and the 60cm Seedmaster, which is capable of both overseeding and initial seeding. And DJ Turfcare of Dunsfold in Surrey is now supplying an overseeding model with 67cm working width. The latter is “push” power but has the advantage of doubling as a topdresser. If it fits your requirements, it may also fit your budget. The DJ overseeder is priced at £480 ex VAT.
