!
Be Aware of
Signal Words
A Signal word designates a degree or
level of hazard seriousness. The
signal words are:
! DANGER
Indicates an imminently hazardous
situation which, if not avoided, will
result in death or serious injury. This
signal word is limited to the most
extreme situations, typically for
machine components that, for
functional purposes, cannot be
guarded.
Dig Safe - Avoid
Underground Utilities
 USA: Call 811

Tire Safety
Transport Safely
 Tire changing can be dangerous
and should be performed by
trained personnel using the
correct tools and equipment.
 When inflating tires, use a clip-on
chuck and extension hose long
enough to allow you to stand to
one side and NOT in front of or
over the tire assembly. Use a
safety cage if available.
 When removing and installing
wheels, use wheel handling
equipment adequate for the
weight involved.
 Comply with state and local laws.
 Use towing vehicle and trailer of
adequate size and capacity. Secure
equipment towed on a trailer with
tie downs and chains.
 Sudden braking can cause a towed
trailer to swerve and upset. Reduce
speed if towed trailer is not
equipped with brakes.
 Avoid contact with any over head
utility lines or electrically charged
conductors.
 Always drive with load on end of
loader arms low to the ground.
 Always drive straight up and down
steep ramps with load on end of
loader arms on the “uphill” side of
the skid steer.
 Engage park brake when stopped
on an incline.
Use A Safety Chain
Practice Safe Maintenance
 A safety chain will help control
drawn machinery should it
separate from the tractor drawbar.
 Use a chain with the strength
rating equal to or greater than the
gross weight of the towed
implement.
 Attach the chain to the tractor
drawbar support or other specified
anchor location. Allow only
enough slack in the chain to
permit turning.
 Do not use safety chain for towing.
 Understand procedure before doing

speed which does not allow
adequate control of steering and
stopping. Some rough terrains
require a slower speed.
 As a guideline, use the following
maximum speed weight ratios for
attached equipment:
20 mph when weight of attached
equipment is less than or equal
to the weight of machine towing
the equipment.
10 mph when weight of attached
equipment exceeds weight of
machine towing equipment but
not more than double the weight.
 IMPORTANT: Do not tow a load
that is more than double the weight
of the vehicle towing the load.
 Disconnect battery ground cable (-)

Introduction
Introduction
Land Pride welcomes you to the growing family of new
product owners. This All Purpose Seeder has been
designed with care and built by skilled workers using
quality materials. Proper assembly, maintenance, and
safe operating practices will help you get years of
satisfactory use from this implement.
Application
The APS1548, APS1560, APS1572 & APS1586 All
Purpose Seeders are excellent combination planting and
cultivation tools for golf courses, school systems,
municipalities, rental yards, construction companies,
sports fields, and college campuses. Their narrower
widths make them effective in seeding applications on
residential lots, grassy medians, grassy parkings, or
right-of-ways adjacent to sidewalks, community parks,
sporting facilities, and golf courses. Unlike wider models
of seeders these units will do a more effective job of
planting in areas where undulations, moguls, and
depressions are prevalent.
The seed box is equipped with our standard fluted seed
cups and an agitator enabling highly accurate and
uniform delivery of most turf grass seeds as well as a
wide variety of other seeds ranging from alfalfa to peas.
The spiked front rollers can be adjusted for more or less
“crab-action cultivation” making them an ideal choice for
opening up and planting in hard or thatchy soil profiles.
Owner Assistance

while using the tractor’s 3-point hydraulic control to
align the tractor’s lower hitch link holes with the
seeder’s clevis lug holes.
DANGER
To prevent serious injury or death:
Tractor hook-up to equipment is dangerous and can result in
serious injury or death. Do not allow anyone to stand between
the seeder and tractor during hook-up operations. Do not
operate hydraulic 3-point lift controls while someone is
directly behind the tractor or near the seeder.
Manually adjust one of the tractor’s lower lift arms up
or down to level the seeder from left to right.
8. With seeder resting on level ground, manually adjust
tractor’s top link until seeder is level from front to rear.
Transporting
!
WARNING
To prevent serious injury or death:
• When traveling on public roads, use accessory lights, SMV
sign, clean reflectors, and other adequate devices to warn
operators in other vehicles of your presence. Always comply
with all federal, state, and local laws.
•
Reduce ground speed when turning and leave enough
clearance to avoid making contact with obstacles such as
buildings, trees, and fences. Making contact can result in
equipment damage and serious injury or death.
•
Do not transport seeder above 20 mph. Doing so can result
in loss of control resulting in equipment damage and serious
injury or death.
•
Do not transport going too fast for the terrain. Slow down
if obstacles are present that the seeder can hit and jerk the
tractor around. Slow down if terrain is rough causing
tractor to bounce. Either situation can cause operator to
lose control and result in serious injury or death.
•
Transport on public roadways with your tractor’s SMV sign
mounted on the back of the All Purpose Seeder. It is possible
for the seeder to block viewing of the sign by approaching
vehicles if mounted on the back of your tractor.
NOTE: Land Pride’s Quick Hitch can be attached to
the tractor to provide quick and easy 3-point hookup and detachment. See your nearest Land Pride
dealer to purchase a Quick-Hitch.

Refer to Figure 2-1:
1. Always lower the All Purpose Seeder to the ground,
engage tractor park brake, shut tractor engine off,
and remove key before filling the seed box.
Lock lid down with lid latch handle (#5) to keep
moisture out.
How the Seeder Works
The following is a brief description of how your
All Purpose Seeder works.
The power to drive the seed cups comes from the rear
roller turning against the ground while traveling. Power is
transmitted from the rear roller through roller chains to
the seed cups. Seed is metered out of the cups at a rate
proportional to the distance driven. This ensures that the
rate applied remains constant as ground speed is varied.
Cup metering speed can be adjusted to either a high or
low range by changing the speed change sprocket. Also,
the rate seed falls through the seed cups is adjustable
using the seed rate adjustment lever located at the back
of the seeder.
The front rollers cultivate the soil, crushes clods, presses
down small stones and forms a seedbed. They can be
angled form 0 degrees (non-aggressive) to 20 degrees
(very aggressive).
The condition of soil and type of vegetation will determine
front roller angle. Soil that has been pre-worked will not
require as aggressive an angle as hard soil or soil with
unwanted vegetation. The drive sprocket can be
disengaged from the rear roller to make several passes
over the soil before seeding. Grass that you plan to seed
over, without killing, should have the front rollers set at 0
degrees or at a slight angle to remove thatch.
Seeds drops in front of the rear roller to allow the roller to
firm the soil around the seeds. The rear roller assembly
floats up and down under spring tension to follow field
terrain.

DANGER
To prevent serious injury or death:
Never carry a person on the seeder. A person can become
entangled in the seeder or fall and be ran over causing serious
injury or death.
!
WARNING
To prevent serious injury or death:
Do not use the seeder for pulling fence posts, stumps, etc.,
lifting objects, carry objects, or towing other equipment. Any
of the above can result in equipment damage, serious bodily
injury, or death.
IMPORTANT: Reference Figure 3-3 on page 17.
Never back up with rear roller drive sprocket (#2)
engaged (detent pin (#1) installed) and roller in
contact with the ground. This will loosen the drive
chain and damage the seeder.
Always disconnect drive sprocket from rear roller
before backing up with roller on the ground.
IMPORTANT: Never make sharp turns with any of
the rollers in contact with the ground. Always lift unit
up off the ground when making sharp turns.
IMPORTANT: Attach seeder to a tractor before
calibrating it for proper seed dispersal rate.
1.
Contact your local utility services so that they may
mark location of any under ground utility services in
the area. Thoroughly inspect the work area yourself
for buried pipelines, sprinkler heads, and any
unforeseen objects. Mark any potential hazards.
2. This seeder can be transported with a full box of
seeds. It is best not to do this unless necessary
because the increased weight does increase the
chances for problems on the road. Do not exceed 20
miles per hour.
3. Calibrate your seeder sprocket speed and seed cup
rate adjustment lever based on type of seed you are
using. Calibration information is located on the inside
of your box lid or in the “Seed Rate charts” provided
on pages 22 to 29.
4. Make sure each seed cup door handle is set at the
same height across the seeder. The highest position
is usually used for grass seeds.
9. Never allow anyone to ride on the seeder.
10. Adjust front rollers to desired angle. Make some
practice runs with drive sprocket disconnected to
determine the best roller angle for your application.
11. Do not back up while seeder is on the ground unless
rear roller is disconnected from drive sprocket.
12. Disconnect rear roller from drive sprocket before
backing up seeder to clean front and rear mud
scrapers of debris.
13. Disconnect drive sprocket if more than one pass is
required to prepare a seed bed before seeding.
14. Reconnect drive sprocket when ready to seed.
15. Do not make sharp turns while seeder is on the
ground.
16. Seeding should not be done in wet conditions as soil
will stick to the rollers.
17. At first begin seeding at a slow forward speed and
shift up until the desired speed is achieved.
Maximum speed to plant seed will vary according to
soil conditions.
18. After seeding the first 50 feet, stop and check to see
that the seeder is adjusted properly.
Parking the Seeder
The following steps should be done when preparing to
store the seeder or unhitch it from the tractor. See also
“Section 5: Maintenance & Lubrication” on page 39 for
additional information on long term storage.
1.
Park All Purpose Seeder on a level, solid area.
2. Lower seeder to level ground or onto blocks
supporting the seeder just above ground level.
3. Place gear selector in park or set park brake, Shut off
tractor engine, and remove switch key.
4. Chock front & back rollers to keep unit from moving.
5. Unhook 3-point hitch from tractor. Reinstall hitch pins
and linchpins in seeder hitch for storage.
Refer to Figure 2-1 on page 13:
6. Remove SMV sign from mounting bracket (#1) on the
back of the All Purpose Seeder.
7.
Reinsert SMV Sign in the mounting bracket on the
back of your tractor.
8. See “Cleaning and Storing” on page 39 if the
seeder is not going to be used for a long time.
5. Be sure all bolts and nuts are tight.
6. Be certain all guards are in place and secure.
7.
Clear area to be seeded of rocks, branches, and
other foreign objects. Mark any potential hazards.
8. Tall grass and weeds should be mowed before
seeding.

Section 2: Operating Instructions
General Operating Instructions
Once you have read the Operator’s Manual, properly
installed the seeder to the tractor’s 3-point hitch, ran
through the Operating Checklist, filled the box with seed,
and calibrated the unit for proper seed rate delivery, it’s
time to do some serious seeding.
The All Purpose Seeders have ground driven seed
delivery systems. The power to drive the seeder comes
from the forward momentum of the tractor. As the tractor
moves forward the ground driven rear roller transfers
power via chain driven sprockets to the seed metering
system. Seed rate remains constant and in direct
proportion to the distance traveled and is affected very
little by actual ground speed.
Whenever you are done seeding always clean the seeder
out and perform all maintenance prescribed in the
Operator’s Manual. Never leave seed stored in the
hopper for prolonged periods. Never dismount your
tractor without first coming to a full stop, turning off the
tractor, and setting the park brake. Never allow riders on
the tractor when working with any rear mounted
implement installed.
With a little practice you should get very good at
developing lush green stands of grass with your Land
Pride All Purpose Seeder.
As the front spiked rollers pass over areas to be seeded
they open up the soil profile. The more critical the angle
adjustment on the front rollers, the more aggressive the
cultivating action will be. Seed is then delivered at the
precise predetermined rate through the wind guarded
seed drop area between the front and rear rollers. The
rear roller then presses seed into firm contact with the
soil to promote a superbly high germination rate. Seeding
should not be attempted in wet or muddy conditions.
Now that you understand how it works, it is time to begin
seeding. You may want to make a few passes with the
seeder drive sprocket disconnected just to make sure
your front rollers are adjusted to the proper angle and to
determine correct ground speed for cultivating the soil
profile to your expectations. Ridging of loose soil is
possible when the front rollers are set at an angle and
your ground speed is too fast. Slow your ground speed to
eliminate ridging. Re-engage the seeder drive sprocket
once you are satisfied that the proper amount of soil
opening action is being achieved.
You should already have removed any large stones or
obstacles from the area you plan to seed. Line the tractor
up for the first pass and choose a tractor gear selection
that will deliver a ground speed of approximately
3-5 mph. Lower the three-point hitch and seeder slowly to
the ground and begin driving forward, slowly at first until
you get comfortable with what you are doing. As you
approach the end of the lane you are seeding, slow down
and come to a stop while simultaneously raising the
seeder off of the ground. With the seeder raised, line up
for your next pass and repeat the process. Look back
often and avoid making very sharp turns with your seeder
on the ground if you expect to develop a uniform seeding
pattern. The more experienced you become the better
you will get at developing beautiful seed plots and
beautiful lawns.

3. Pull idler sprocket (#8) away from driven
chain (#7) and remove driven chain.
4. Rearrange speed change sprocket (#6) so that the
larger 35 tooth sprocket is in front of the smaller 19
tooth sprocket as shown.
9. Retention drive chain (#3) by pressing down on idler
sprocket (#2). When tensioned properly, tighten 3/8"
flange lock nut (#1) to maintain that tension.
5. Secure sprocket with 5/8" flat washer (#5) and
5/8" - 11 nut (#4). Tighten nut to correct torque.

Seed Cup Settings
Calibrating & Adjusting Seeding Rate
Refer to Figure 3-6:
Each seed cup is equipped with a four-position gate. The
highest gate handle position shown is for small seeds,
the second and third positions are for larger seeds. The
forth position (Handle rotated fully down below the
bottom tab) sets the gate at wide open to allow complete
clean-out of seed cup.
Seed rate charts are based on the gate handle being set
in the highest position. Typically, most seeds will use the
highest gate handle position. If using larger seed and it is
not discharging properly, you can try using the other two
gate handle positions.
IMPORTANT: Seed rates provided in the charts may
be inconsistent with actual planting rates due to
seed size, weight, treatment, moisture content, ratio
of inert material to seed, different seed mixtures,
humidity, & ground preparation. Minor adjustments
to the cup setting may be needed to compensate.
NOTE: To determine seed rates for seeds not listed
in the charts, compare weight and size to those
listed and use a similar setting. Follow steps 1 to 3 to
calibrate seed rate.
1.
Use seed rate charts beginning on page 22 to
determine correct seeding rate and adjustments:
IMPORTANT: Most applications for this seeder
require the gate handle be placed in the highest
position.
a. Decide which drive range is required (low or high
range). If necessary, change speed change
sprocket to accommodate correct speed range.
Refer to “Speed Change Sprocket” on page 18.
MAKE SURE all gate handles are in the same
position before seeding.
b. Refer to Figure 3-7: Move seed rate adjustment
lever to cup setting number obtained from the
seed rate charts. For best results, first move
adjustment lever all the way to the left and then to
the desired setting.
Do Not set gate handles in the fourth position and
seed rate adjustment lever to the widest open
position (See Figure 3-7 on page 21) with seed in the
box unless complete clean out is desired.
NOTE: Always remove detent pin (#1) shown in
Figure 3-3 on page 17 when you want to stop seed
cups from discharging product.

• Increase setting if seed is lighter than average.
• Decrease setting if seed is heavier than
average.
2. Complete the following procedure to calibrate
dispersal rate for your specific seed.
a. Place several pounds of seed over three of the
seed cups at the outboard end of the seeder. Do
not allow any of the seed to reach other cups.
b. Lower seeder frame onto support blocks that will
support the rear roller just above ground level.
NOTE: Rotate rear roller by grasping the roller at
the bottom and pulling away from the seeder and
pushing toward the seeder at the top of the roller.
c. Rotate rear roller to make sure drive system is
working properly and seed cups are free from
foreign matter.
d. Place a drop cloth under the seeder to collect all
seeds that are metered out.
e. Make sure the three seed cups have plenty of
seed falling into them and not in the other cups.

f. Rotate rear roller the number of rotations noted in
table above. Be sure to check the three feed cups
to make sure each cup has plenty of seed coming
into it.
g. Weigh the seed which has been metered out and
divide that weight by three to get the number of
pounds or kilograms per seed cup.
NOTE: If total weight for 3 seed cups is in
ounces, divide that weight by 48 instead of 3.

h. Next, multiply number of pounds or kilograms per
seed cup by the number of seed cups on the grass
seeds seedbox to arrive at weight “A”.
Seed Rate Adjustments
Figure 3-7
i. If Weight “A” is calculated based on:
1/10 acre, then “A” x 10 = lbs/acre
1000 sq ft, then "A" x 43.56 = lbs/acre
1000 sq ft, then “A” x 1 = lbs/1000 sq ft
1/20 hectare, then “A” x 20 = kgs/hectare
100 sq meters, then “A” x 100 = kgs/hectare
100 sq meters, then “A” x 10 = kgs/1000 sq m
j. If calculated grass seed rate is different than the
suggested settings in the charts, then increase or
decrease the seed cup adjustment lever.
3. Repeat calibration procedure if the results of the
calibration vary greatly with the chart.
NOTE: Field conditions will affect seeding rates.
Check amount of seed being used by noting size of
area being seeded, amount of seed added to the
seeder, and level of seed in the seedbox.
It may be necessary to make minor adjustments to
the seeding rate if the seeder has been accurately
calibrated and is seeding more or less seed than
desired.
IMPORTANT: Do Not operate seed rate adjustment
lever at -0- setting. Seed cup damage may occur.
Do Not set door handles and seed rate adjustment
lever to the widest open position with seed in the box
unless complete clean out is desired.

There is no “range” associated with Small Seeds drive. If
set correctly, the Small Seeds box should turn the same
speed regardless of whether the main seed box is set for
high or low range. Study the seeds charts and install
sprockets and roller chains accordingly.

Small Seeds Adjustments
h. Next, multiply number of pounds or kilograms per
seed cup by the number of seed cups on the small
seeds seedbox to arrive at weight “A”.
Refer to Figure 3-10:
Use seed rate charts on page 29 to determine seeding
rate for the seed you will be planting.
i. If Weight “A” is calculated based on:
1/10 acre, then “A” x 10 = lbs/acre
1000 sq ft, then "A" x 43.56 = lbs/acre
1000 sq ft, then “A” x 1 = lbs/1000 sq ft
1/20 hectare, then “A” x 20 = kgs/hectare
100 sq meters, then “A” x 100 = kgs/hectare
100 sq meters, then “A” x 10 = kgs/1000 sq m
NOTE: Seeding rates will vary greatly with variations
in seed size, seed treatment, weight of seed, soil
surface condition, and rear roller slippage. Minor
adjustments to the seed rate adjustment lever may
be needed. We recommend that you test and adjust
your All Purpose Seeder using the procedures listed
below to help ensure an accurate seeding rate.
1.
See Important Note above. Move seed rate
adjustment lever to cup setting number obtained from
the seed rate charts. For best results, first move
adjustment lever all the way to the left and then to the
desired setting.
• Increase setting if seed is lighter than average.
• Decrease setting if seed is heavier than average.
2. Complete the following procedure to calibrate
dispersal rate for your specific seed.
a. Place several pounds of seed over three of the
seed cups at the outboard end of the All Purpose
Seeder. Do not allow any of the seed to reach
other cups.
b. Pull seed tubes out of these three drops.
c. Raise and support rear roller off the ground using
a jack.
d. Rotate rear roller to make sure drive system is
working properly and that the feed cups are free
from foreign matter.
j. If calculated small seed rate is different than the
suggested settings in the charts, then increase or
decrease the seed cup adjustment lever.
3. Repeat calibration procedure if the results of the
calibration vary greatly with the chart.
NOTE: Field conditions will affect seeding rates.
Check amount of seed being used by noting size of
area being seeded, amount of seed added to the
seeder, and level of seed in the seedbox.
It may be necessary to make minor adjustments to
the seed rate adjustment lever if the seeder has been
accurately calibrated and is seeding more or less
seed than desired.
IMPORTANT: Never operate small seeds box with
seed rate adjustment lever set at 0. Always remove
detent pin (#1) shown in Figure 3-3 on page 17 to
stop seed cups from turning. Allowing any of the
seed cups to turn with the adjustment lever set at 0
will damage the cups.

e. Place a container under the three seed tubes to
gather seed as it is metered.

f. Rotate rear roller the number of rotations noted in
table above. Be sure to check the three feed cups
to make sure each cup has plenty of seed coming
into it.
g. Weigh the seed which has been metered out and
divide that weight by three to get the number of
pounds or kilograms per seed cup.
NOTE: If total weight for 3 seed cups is in
ounces, divide that weight by 48 instead of 3.

Section 5: Maintenance & Lubrication
Maintenance
Cleaning and Storing
Proper servicing and adjustments are key to the long life
of any implement. With careful inspection and routine
maintenance, you can avoid costly downtime and repair.
It is good practice to clean off any dirt or grease that may
have accumulated on the seeder and moving parts at the
end of each working season or when your seeder will not
be used for several days.
Check all bolts after using unit for several hours to be
sure they are tight. Replace any worn, damaged, or
illegible safety labels by obtaining new labels from your
Land Pride dealer.
!
Be sure that the seed box is completely cleaned
before storing. It is best to do this while still hooked to
the tractor.
a. Scoop out any large quantities of seed left in the
box. Finish by using a small broom or vacuum
sweeper.
WARNING
To prevent serious injury or death:
• Always secure seeder in the up position with solid supports
before servicing the underside. Never work under
equipment supported by hydraulics. Hydraulics can drop
equipment if controls are actuated or if hydraulic lines
burst. Either situation can drop the seeder instantly even
when power to the hydraulics is shut off.
•
1.
Refer to Figure 5-2:
b. Move seed rate adjustment lever(s) all the way to
the right to fully open fluted seed cups.
c. Lower four position door handles to the lowest
position at each main box seed cup.
d. Run seeder over the ground to power the fluted
seed cups to remove out-of-reach seeds.
Do not alter implement or replace parts on the implement
with other brands. Other brands may not fit properly or
meet OEM specifications. They can weaken the integrity
and impair the safety, function, performance, and life of the
implement. Replace parts only with genuine
e. Make a final sweep or vacuum of the fluted seed
cups to finish the cleaning job.

Roller Chains
Refer to Figure 5-1:
Your drive system uses standard no. 40 roller chain and is
designed for low maintenance.
1.
Check drive idler (#1) and driven idler (#2) to ensure
they are taking up excess chain slack.
2. Check drive chain (#3) and driven chain (#4) to
ensure they are not over-tightened.
3. Check chain tension of roller chains driving the small
seeds box cups.
4. Clean and lubricate all roller chains with chain
lubricant as needed.

5. When in storage, lower the seeder with rollers on a
board or hard surface.
6. Repaint parts where paint is worn or scratched to
prevent rust.

8. Store seeder inside if possible. Inside storage will
reduce maintenance and make for a longer seeder
life.
