Agreed. I priced one of the best at 6000 new.

Small old farm seed drills are under a thousand and can be pulled by a quad (they have trip lift because they were made for tractors before hydraulics). The small ones that can be pulled with a quad are MORE expensive, because of the hunters. They were made for tilled ground, but can be made to work as overseeders with proper procedures and work--you need to seed when the existing crop is short (just mowed or grazed) and possibly follow with another tool for improved seed-to-soil contact (chain harrow, etc.)
