new ride-on

saw this at the ne grows show
https://www.prizelawnspreaders.com/pdf/PowrSprdMAN.pdf



certainly in its infancy, but i think a good design,
one i have been waiting to see, articulating front hydro drive,

really has potential- its very simple,easy to operate, large capacity

did they give you any pricing on it? Looking at the pick it looks like the stainless cover on the bottom could bottom out on steep hills or any rocks that may stick up high

$3995 reg price,
he offered to sell me the one he had on display, at discount
i just couldnt jump on it right at that moment


it looked about 4 1/2 - 5" ground clearnce,
but its a tad more than than the front bar on my hps spreader
and the rear plate on the zspray i owned-- so its probably
plenty sufficient

the only pictures I have seen are the same as the one on the cover of the owners manual. That angled part below the sheet metal screws looks like it goes really low. Which dealer from the area had it at new england grows?

If it sprayed it would be even cooler! I like the way it looks...keep us posted on how it works for you.

the manufacturer was there, but that machine was going to
northeast equipment or nursery or something- ive never heard of them



one thing i didnt like on the spreader was lack of a 3rd hole shut off,
for the deflector side- although they thought one could be added

but it was all reversed, the platter spins opposite direction and deflector( left hand) on opposite side as the normal psb spreader--probably not a problem
dont spikers spin opposite direction of a lesco ?

Looks like a ground logic cousin but with different controls.

Just curious, how was the attendance at NE Grows this year?

I last last attended in 2009, and the turn out of visitors and exhibits wasn't like in the past, I know the economy is a huge part of it!

I went to the MA landscape show / seminars in Sturbridge in January, pretty good turnout considering it snowed big the day before.
