    Default Buckeye Tractor implement reviews

    Hi,

    I searched the forums and could only come up with one negative review of their stuff from like 4 years ago. I'm very interested in some of their products because they seem like they would fit well in my market garden set up.

    Anybody have anything good or bad to say about these folks?

    Thanks.

    I really like my buckeye equipment. What are you looking at buying? Mike and his dad are very good to deal with. They have a different approach than most of their competitors. Their equipment works with your soil and that is good and difficult. I have threads on here about my bedder. I do not think many here use equipment like this so feedback is limited. I will be glad to share anything I have learned about them and their competitors as I have used both. I will say buckeye stuff is great for a farmer who is wanting perfection in his field work. There many choices in the specialty crop equipment and your needs and wants really determine which implement from which manufacturer is best. I have a face book page Reyer Farms also, there is video of bedder working and many pictures. I have used mine for three plantings over the last two yrs. I still have kinks to work out. Glad to have someone else who knows about buckeye and others equipment to talk with.

    Hey Jody,

    Thats nice to hear that you have had a good experience. I think they will be getting some business from me this year. So I've been around the market gardening scene for about 6 years, mainly as hired help but am getting more serious about things myself this year and going to have a small operation of my own, focusing primarily on the CSA model. I'm trying to get away from using a rototiller and I think an interesting approach might be to plan things accordingly so your cover crop has had several weeks to break down, then to come in with a two shanked chisel plow, followed by a roller, and I'm hoping this roller will create a fine enough seed bed - I don't know if it will. Going to have pretty much permanent beds on 5 foot centers. Cultivation with maybe a Williamson tool system, or something belly mounted on the Tuff Bilt (like an Alis G)then either drill cover crop and/or hay mulch the long season crops (tomato, etc.). We'll see.

    Thanks.
    Blair
