Didn't know where to properly post this -
Do we have a "Hot Deals" area?

Anyway, I needed a broadcast spreader. As with anything that costs more than $50, I do tons of research to find the best deal. And, living in the boonies as I do, I usually order most of my stuff on-line.

Came across this in my quest:

All metal gear box with grease fitting, and 15" pneumatic tires.
I'm not that crazy about the wheelbarrow type handles, but for $43 bucks, what the heck. I ended up paying $32.06 shipping, plus tax, came to $79.48.
Just got it today, and it is quite a spreader for the money. I honestly think that this is a mistake on their website....but I got it.

No kidding! Thanks for the post Prosperity! I'm not a full timer so this should last me forever. Do you think it will do salt also? I don't even have a HD in my city but I'm gonna drive 30 minutes away in the morning to get one me thinks.
