InaHeat: I agree with what has been said about price. That sounds like a reasonable price for what a topdresser is supposed to do. If you find new prices much cheaper than that, it would probably be a "toy" or an unproven design. One of the other sponsors on this site is Lawn Solutions out of Louisville. They have gained a good reputation with other lawn care machines. They are fine-tuning their design and testing out a topdresser now. Hopefully it will be out soon (maybe Fall). Several of us are waiting for its introduction. Click on their name among the sponsors on the opening page of LawnSite for info about the company and its machines. I'm not a paid shill. I'm just a satisfied customer with a couple of their other products.
