I was recently in my local Lesco dealer and way up on the shelf there was this piece of equipment. Well what they called it was a broadcaster spreader (not a broad cast spreader). This thing has an 8hp Honda motor and a compressor with a hopper on it and my dealer told me it was for shooting granular fert or something on Plam trees or something like that (it was there for so long that he didnt even know exactly what it was). Well it was on like close out and the thing was like $500 and it is brand new. I bought it for the fact that it is like a mobile compresser and I could use it for sprinkler blow-outs, air tools and things like that. Has anybody ever heard of it and what it is really used for. Can I put it to use for something in my area. The motor alone is worth more than what I paid for it. It has a big air tank with a 160lb capacity. What do ya think?
