Same idea for a ride-on spreader.
Yes I have wondered that myself. There is a Bigfoot High Volume spreader.
We have EKO compost here and the leading bark blowing Co. will blow it out. On of my aeration clients had it done and I was not very impressed with the results. Uneven application and far too much wood product in there for a lawn. EKO does make a lawn top dressing formula with far less wood in it but it's not available in bulk that I know of.
