grassguy - my sentiments exactly! The small wheels seemed to get caught on ruts easier and would bounce around more. This was really noticable when pushing a hopper full of 80# of fert. But, as somebody had previously mentioned, the small wheeled job threw the fert better.

junk all those lesco's and get a spreader that can make you more money! get a sr2000 from scotts. this spreader spreads 14' and it puts prouduct down EVEN and theres no need to throw back to your tracks! cost a little more $475, but it will out proudce any push spreader. the only draw back is the 50# hopper.
If you do what needs to be done, when it needs to be done. Then someday, you can do what you want when you want .

Thanks James and Tremor for reminding me of the NIGHTMARE that my one and only Salsco cam aerator was. The first day out, I twisted and had to replace the shaft. It never really got better. Had to have tougher springs fabricated and went to a plastic "beater bar". Even paid a helper to go out with me - he helped replace springs as they broke (2 man job).

The thing did pull great cores when it was running. 1 day production = 1 day of repair. Guess our heavy clay soil was too much for it. Those things would have been ideal as ship anchors.....
Its a Cinderella story outta nowhere. Former greenskeeper and now about to become the Masters champion.....
