About This Product

Chapin's 8701B garden push seeder takes the back strain out of planting your vegetable garden. The 1.5-liter, rust-resistant poly hopper is supported on a durable powder-coated steel frame. You have 6 seed plates to choose from to accommodate up to 20 varieties of produce. The zinc plow tears through the soil, the seed is placed and the wide rear wheel replaces and pats the soil, all while you're pushing it through your garden. An adjustable row marker allows you to set it for the next row so you can quickly follow the correct spacing, depending on your seed.


  • 6 seed plates: up to 20 seed types - baby Lima beans, beans, medium beans, medium peas, sunflower, cucumber, corn, sweet corn, beets, radishes, Brussels sprouts, rutabaga, parsnips, spinach, cabbage, broccoli, rhubarb, endive, carrots, cauliflower, celery, kale, lettuce, onions, peppers, turnips
  • 1.5 liter hopper: poly, rust-resistant seed hopper holds up to 1.5 liters of vegetable seeds, supported on a durable, powder-coated steel frame; work comfortably with the cushioned handle grips
  • Mark, prep, place, cover: do all four by simple pushing the seeder; marks the row, plows the row with the zinc plow blade, places the seeds and covers the row, with the wide rear wheel, as you walk through your garden
  • Row marker: adjustable rotating wheel row marker provides correct width for the next row; fully customizable depending on the type of seeds being planted; set it before starting if you're planting the same seeds and adjust when switching to a new seed
  • Designed and engineered in the USA: designed by Chapin engineers in Batavia, NY and backed by Chapin's 1-year limited warranty

      Chapin Garden seeder- This seeder comes partially assembled as shown in the picture. It took me roughly a half hour to put the rest together. Directions are a bit lacking 2 small 10 wrenches are needed. Before you attempt to use this be sure you soil is well tilled, flat and raked fine. It cleans up very easily and is easy to store. I am a huge gardener and put in a lot of seed every year. Frankly, though I wanted to love this, I do faster on my own. This requires far more preparation of the soil than I would normally do. Interesting concept, just not for my clay soil.

      Nice garden seeder with so many selections for different types of seeds. Very easy to use and small enough and light enough for my children to get involved in garden planting. Can't wait to use it, waiting for Spring to arrive. Unit came double boxed shipped to my home undamaged. Well packed to assure it arrives in good condition. I will use the box to store the seeder and plates when not in use. I highly recommend this for any gardener.

      I am needing to order a new belt for my seed planter. I’ve had it for an under a year and used it last spring and it worked great but now the belt has stretched out and will not stay in place.
