Güttler GreenMaster 600 with seeding tines: Scratch 'n' seed

For many years, Güttler has offered the GreenMaster harrow with a seeder that broadcasts seed from a series of spreader plates behind the tines. The downside to broadcasting is that, if the grass is wet or you're working in a denser stand, some of the seed will not actually reach the ground where it can germinate.
