I would not characterize this model as "industrial strength" but on the other hand it has taken 120 lbs of lime (etc) for long rides. It is light enough that I can store it up off the floor in my workshop, so for the ~350 days I am not using it there is no wasted space.
My only complaint is that I have to find the time to extend the control closer to my operating position -- right now it is reachable but inconvenient.
If I had to get another, I would look at a PTO-driven type -- but on the other hand on my specific property, which is not exactly an open field, I think I would have to work at not over-applying in certain areas.
