spreading compost

Here is how we do it. This is a little small for athletic fields but great for lawns 10 M to 1+ acres.

Holds 1 cubic yard with the extension. We probably spread 600+ cubic yards this Sept through January.

Putting Greens,

Post some pics of your work and do you use an ecolawn?? - sort of confused on your last post. Check out my synthetic green in my front yard I hit almostgolf balls to it from up to 75 yards away with a 5 iron.

Go to about the 3rd post to see green.

The Commander in Chief from Eco Lawn Applicator was here today to adjust my applicator.

We are going to up-grade the conveyor belt to ribbed, switch out to improved agitator and a use a larger pulley to bring it up to date, 09 standards.
My machine was built in late 07 then sold in 08.

The compost we tried he said, was dry with little sand, which caused bridging in my machine but with his machine, it was a slight issue. The product needed to be screened more and better finished.

Daniel stands behind his machine and he didn't leave here until he was satisfied with the improvements to be made.

So far, I would recommend the machine. I will up date this report after the up grades are done. Parts should be here within two weeks.

Is anyone familiar with either of these two and can give feedback.Or is there another brand I might look into.
The Bull spreader will not handle any material with chunkies.....and the material must be more or less dry. It is a drop spreader. It looks like a well made machine which you can use for dehydrated materials.

I guess I'm biased, but the Eco-Lawn handles the broadest range of different materials. After spending many hours operating one (and selling many), I believe that it's the best spreader for it's versatility and cost (and ease of use).

The maueuverability 'off road' and in back yard situations is where the Eco-Lawn shines.
