Is there any place in the metro area that actually rents (walk behind) topdressers? Something like an Ecolawn Applicator.

Tried searching a bit but search from the mobile app isn't the best. I'll keep trying though.

Thanks

Best of luck finding a rental. I bought an Eco200 this season. Did a few lawns but have not used it enough yet to get a good rate of return. Hope that changes....

I'm tempted to buy one but I've only done two topdressings in the last 5 years.

I guess I could try to push for them more. I like the eco lawn because of the capacity and coverage area but have a hard time justifying 9k on that when I have other machines that I would use more. There is a company that offers the service nearby that I may just sub out.

I am guessing you probably went to one in Plymouth. I did not have a good experience with that dealer on another purchase. Cant say for sure on a mower purchase though. I would still use this dealer due to location as they are only 1 mile from my house if I purchased/owned a wright mower. Are you looking for a stander? Maybe want to check out the new JD Stander, Built on wright stander specs according to the JD Dealers I went to this past summer when I was contemplating a standon unit. Hopefully someone else here has a good recommendation for a wright dealer as I would also be interested in checking them out.
