Good fertilizer/seed spreader for about $100

Looking for something with rubber tires and wide stance and a decent spread. Most likely travelling to NY and visiting the HD or Lowes. Ive checked the farm supply stores up here in Canada and they want almost 200.
The one I have been using is a small Scotts brand with edgeguard (which I like for its directional spread along walkways or roadsides) but its been leaving dark green lines in the a few lawns, maybe from overlap or irregular spread pattern?
HD has a Scotts Pro (lol) on sale now. $70 I think but Im obviously not married to this brand or model.
Id like something to last but not cost too much.
I looked online for Lesco dealers in Western NY but couldnt locate any. Not married to that brand either.

Any advice or recommendations are appreciated
Thanks

Check out those at Tractor Supply. I had one and gave it away...Though nothing wrong with it.

What...? The Earthway 3100 Monkey Grinder is my favorite and most versatile spreader.

I have the Earthway 3200 and it's a joke. My push spreader is the Earthway 2150, love it but you have to be careful when handling it to not bend the control arm. Found that out the hard way..

Where can I get any of these? I bought one from tractor supply, he Groundworks Pro Series 85lb but when I got it all the way home and set it up, the tire tube has a tear in it where the valve stem joins, so Ill be taking it back.
