Thats the entry level spreader that I was looking into, are you confident with the plastic frame, are there any signs of stress anywhere on the frame? Would you buy another one if you only had the same amount of money to spend on the next one?

Thanks for your input.

there is like NO stress on the plastic frame. I use it from fert to salt to seed. just put some fluid film on the metal pieces. I would buy another one if this one breaks. I used a friend's black scotts pro spreader and the tires are so skinny, I can almost not push it. the shin's tires are nice and wide, and on Scott's spreader, you have to pull on the lever the whole time you want to spread. the shin locks open and locks closed. Oh, and that prizelawn lookse EXACTLY like the shin.

Awesome response, the spreader I was actually comparing anything to was the Scotts Pro for about $80 and it had what I was looking for but I didnt like the size of the tires and was afraid of stability issues.

If you would buy another of these Shins or Prizelawn spreaders with the same amount of money then im convinced of its quality and Im glad to learn there are no stress marks in the plastic frame.

Thanks again

I'd like to thank anyone who responded with advice or
Opinions. I have purchased the Spyker, model 58-22. I've yet to see a spreader like this the whole time I was looking. The construction is so solid, good looking welds, stainless steel frame. I picked it up for $100 and it hasn't seen a pellet of fertilizer yet. It's brand new basically.

Are you a professional? If yes then buy professional grade products, every thing you listed as a want is a professional grade charactoristic. Cannot afford 200 extra for something high end? Really?

We use the most expensive 50 lb, 80 lb lesco/Jdl spreaders laser forever and parts are replaceable.

Think about all the time you've spent driving around trying to grey or look at a spreader. With that time spent you could have gotten a high end one already and be done with it.

I agree, with what youve said about wasting time and driving all over the place, but i wanted to stay within a budget. Like i said previously, if I had $400 to spend, the choice wouldve been easier. Trying to find quality equipment on a budget isnt easy and sometimes requires to be very picky and i wanted to find as much info as I could before purchasing.

I got a Spyker and Im very pleased so far. I will; be rinsing it out after use and rubbing an oily rag all over the steel frame as recommended, so I hope it to last a long time.
