Do you overseed by hand or a machine?

I'm curious, what's the percentage of TLF users that overseed by hand (i.e. broadcast spreader or literally by hand), or by machine (i.e. a slit seeder).

So I created a quick straw poll to see.

Note that this question is regards into a full overseed project (overseeding the whole lot/front or back yard), not just for patching.

If you overseed by hand but do something like drag a portion of chain link fence over the turf, note that in the comments.

By hand with a hand held broadcast spreader, and then raked in.

I have a small lawn and this is how I apply seed and granular fertilizer.
