Oh wow!!! That must be something they've just changed with the two rear wheels on the Ecolawn 200. I know I got one of the 1st one's, so it must be an update.

I haven't had any problems with the single rear wheel. I did get tubes installed in both the two front wheels. It had a slow leak in one of the tires...so once I got the tubes installed....that has eliminated that problem.

With the single rear wheel I've never had a problem with the machine wanting to tip over. And I only fill the hopper to the top....and don't try to overload it when I'm spreading.

Plus, I usually charge the customer per hopper. This also helps me keep track of how far I am spread a cubic yard = 3 hopper fulls.

But having two rear wheels would help keep the machine more stable....but I haven't had any problems with the single rear wheel.

Good luck and I think you will like your new Ecolawn 200 a lot!!! And as long as you can get a good supply of compost....you've gotten yourself into a nice niche market.
