Buy the new Ecolawn 200 model. It cost $500.00 more than Ecolawn 100....but it has dual spreading wheels. One turning right, the other turning left....so it can spread heavier(wet) materials with an even coverage.
It's a great machine, Ecolawn 200. When the hopper is full, I can still back up with mine....because you always want to load it on a flat surface. It's quick, light, and good design.
I've never tried Turfco, and I'm sure they are good...but I know Ecolawn for me is the best when I'm spreading organic compost in customer's yards. That is all I use mine for....but I know I could spread other materials...and the new model can spread sand that has moisture well too.
Here's a few pictures of My Ecolawn 200....and spend the extra money to get the dual wheeel disk setup. It's worth the extra money!!!
The other two pictures are on Lawnsite under, "Going to GIE+EXPO to see the Compost Spreaders".
