The Firminator: all-you-need food-plot tool for ATVs

The Firminator

If you’ve ever had a hunting lease with perfect spots for food plots or a small dove field, but had no access to a tractor, you were probably out of luck when it came to planting clover, buckwheat, rape, sorghum, millet or sunflowers.

But now it’s no sweat — if you have an ATV and a Firminator.

A 3-in-1 tool made to roll along behind a 500 CC or larger ATV, the Firminator is a unit that discs, seeds and cultipacks with the flick of a switch. From breaking ground to putting in seed that turns a quarter-acre of dirt into a wildlife magnet, it’s all a hunter needs in the way of equipment to get green stuff growing — except for maybe a soil test.

Manufactured by Ranew’s Outdoor Equipment in Georgia, the Firminator comes in a variety of sizes, with the ATV model perfect for most hunters with food plots to plant. It features 12-inch discs, an ACCU-Seed seed delivery system and an agriculture-grade, cast-iron cultipacker.

The ATV model weighs 800 pounds, heavy enough to dig in when lighter units won’t get the job done. It comes with a tow bar sized for a 1 7/8-inch ball, but it also has a 3-point hitch in case you have a small tractor handy.

MSRP is $6,000.
