it is in newish condition working perfectly, If you are intrested I can take photos. shipping would be about 45.00 55.00 give or take. paid about 400 for it used mabey 15 times. if lesco is only an hour away you should just cruise over their. or make an offer

Spreader

I just bought a Shindaiwa RS76S stainless steel spreader.It seems durable and has grease fittings on axle.

Which spreader to get? Well, that depends on what brand of fert your going to settle on for your applications.

If you were to look at the backside of the Fert bags, you will see recommended settings for given brands of spreaders. There is no industry standard on output/rate or area of spread among manufacturers.

How in the world otherwise would you know how much coverage or rate you're applying? Even if you were to match up the fert with the spreader, it's still recommended you calibrate your application rate which can vary by applicator walking speed etc.

So if you decide on Lesco, go with a Lesco spreader etc. Even if you don't actually calibrate it for yourself (with the use of trays) it's assumed your likely to be close. I suggest you do some study and get some formal training on this before you do a bad application and possibly be sued and/or fined for damages etc. FYI: In my area, you cannot apply insecticides or herbicides to any open lawn areas without full applicators license > >> "Read" weed and feeds...... Yes, Homeowners can BUT you may NOT to a homeowner's or any property- even without pay.

well you said input but no lesco. lesco is probably the best brand of spreader. The S-steel is great, can be used for Ice melt products as well, parts are easy t o come buy. if you should need them. Most lesco places if you need some will drop stuff in the mail for ya.

the powdercoated steel frame is the only weakness of any spreader. SS is the way to go....

I like both Lesco and Anderson, I believe the Anderson is cheaper tho, but both brands hold up well as far as I've seen.
