John deere's poly plus is sulfur coated urea.

Sulfur coated is fine. I suspect that the Poly Plus is sulfur coat with a final coat of polymer plastic--better as the granules do not crack as easily.
Both products should spread well.
In times of high humidity--the urea in the mix tends to attract moisture--that may cause problems.
Both should be about equal, in that there is low burn potential, when used at a reasonable rate by experienced workers that don't suffer many tip-over accidents.

Is it a blend with Bio-Solids? When we use bs blends, the spreaders get pretty gummy.
