Even with a hand spreader the profit margins are quite high and I suspect would increase with a more developed system.
I'd love to, but we don't have product available. Could you pm me info on the compost material? The local company sells it at $93/yd (NO KIDDING) and all it is is clumps of topsoil, mulch and leaves/sticks etc. Good for gardening but you can forget about spreading it!!! What grass species are you topdressing? How many sq ft per yd of compost? how are you topdressing - what type of equipment?
