Does anybody own the earthway c24r 100lb spreader? I treat about 25 lawns. I currenlt have a 50lb earthway low end (95dollar) model with is junk! Is the "professional" c24r reallr professional duty? My first choice is a lesco but they are 340 bucks compared to the earthway ay 189 at alamia! Im not ussually cheap like this when it comes to buying equipment but i have spend a abundant amount of money in the past year and have to draw the line somewhere. What do you think?

I just bought a C22R and it is definitely a better, heavier duty unit than an old low end EarthWay I have ($90.00 range, probably same one you're talking about). Not as good as my Stainless Spyker, but it'll do for the smaller jobs (that model only holds 50# compared to the C24R).

I use a C24SS Earthway in my company, it's basically the same as the C24R, except that it's stainless steel. They are not as rugged as the Lesco models, but I think they are easier and more comfortable to use. For 25 lawns, the C24R will do just fine.

I've got the earthway c24, plastic hopper, no stainless. Great unit, no complaints. I do about 150 accounts. Dave g

Go earthway

I use earthway spreaders, the 24SS and the pull type.Both are excellent. Something to consider is accuracy. I feel that the earthways are of the most accurate ones on the market. If you plan on doing this for a ong time though, I would spend the extra now and get the ss model. It will last forever.

I got the small stainless spyker for about $120 from greenlinedist.com. It's great for the smaller places and the hopper is stailess with sealed gears and pneumatic tire. not a bad deal. I went to this after the cheapo earthway was returned for losing calibration all the time.
