I like and use the Ecolawn model 200. It has two discharge wheels and spreads heavier (more moisture) better with the two wheels.

I've spread have spread compost when a surprise rain came out of no where. The Ecolawn could still spread, just not as far if the organic compost was dry. But long story short, did a very good job.

The Ecolawn has plastic sides so its easy to clean and brush heavy/stuck areas of compost from moisture.

And I was also surprised at how many people wanted me to spread organic compost....still doing customers from the Spring. The weather plays a big part, if it rains....you usually will want to wait a few days before you spread...otherwise you will become a muddy mess. Just explain it to the customer....and if they can't understand, then you don't want them because they might be more of a hassle then what they are worth.

I will post a few new pictures tomorrow of my work and new set up. And I can say I'm glad I went with Ecolawn so far!!!
