      Thanks for the information - I'll have a local rep stop by Earth Service when they are in the area. I also have a new accessory - a spreader lifting handle! Let me know your email address and I'll send you a photo. And I would like to see the digital speedo, was it expensive?
      Thanks

      Jeff,
      I looked at a few Earthway spreaders at
      http://www.earthserviceandsupply.com/ My dealer. But one tire was soft. But...one with a control center only worked on one side due to the cable-lock screw not fully tight.

      May I suggest you fill a spread half full of fert and lift it onto a pickup 20 times. Then I think you will understand how a lifting handle on the side of the hopper (or frame under the hopper) would be a back-saving and handy addition. I put a handle on my Scotts spreader and I thought it was a big help.

      I was impressed with the detailed calibration charts and suggested settings in the instruction manual. Although I was mystified in a couple spots.

      Do you want to see the digital speedometer I put on my Scotts spreader?

      What I meant to say was that I have used some spreaders with the handles too close together, so that the spreader was tippy on rough terrain. I am retired now. But I used to modify my Scotts (Anderson's) spreader with 12 inch-lengths of conduit so as to to make the handles shoulder-width apart. Although my shoulders are not really big at all. I always added premium moto-cross rubber hand grips. I prefer the grips to be about an inch in diameter. Maybe an inch and a half if you have big hands.
