 Oversewing winter rye

I'm planning to buy my first compact tractor and was wondering if it would be cost effective to sew winter rye in the horse pastures myself. What type/brand/size of overseeder (is this the right implement?) would be good and how much does one cost. I have about 14 acres; my neighbor has 20 acres and might be willing to split the cost of one. Would 21-25 hp be enough to pull one of these over level terrain.Thanks.

 Oversewing winter rye

Willy,
When I looked at overseeders they ran in the $6,000 - $8,000 dollar range, with used ones running about half that. This was for units about 6 ft. wide to pull behind a NH TC-40D. I have seen units for rent on the Internet but have not found any in my area, so plan "B" is to rent a core aerator to punch holes in the pasture and then plant using the broadcast seeder ($500) and chain harrow ($350) I already have. We planted winter rye as a cover crop last fall just using the broadcast seeder and chain harrow and it came up great.

I was planning on breaking up the top with the scarifiers on my box blade, spread the seed and then go over with a drag I constructed with chain link and 2x8s. Do you think this will work?

Question's! how much will your tractor's 3 point lift @24" back? My landpride overseeder weighs about 1600LBS empty. They are a good envestmint if you are going to use it enough. I have one I will sell (used) if interested.
