    Anderson's SGN 215 with an outstanding UI versus SGN 240 with an all over the place UI for most lower quality brands.

    Sold 2 1/2 trailers just today.

    Pricing is comparable to others until you factor in the reduced call backs for lousy crabgrass control. The Anderson's product looks even better then.

    I asked my local supplier who sells Anderson fertilizer about pricing and quality. It is a very nice fertilizer but it is way more expensive than what I pay at JDL/Lesco. I am talking many dollars a bag for similar products.

    I ran into the same thing. $6-$10/bag more depending on what flavor I got. I went up on my prices but not enough to justify that....

    It sure seems to me that regional pricing is varying widely. For the most comparable products, I can get Anderson's w/ barricade cheaper than the Lesco price here. The Anderson 20-3-10 .287 barricade is cheaper than the Lesco 25-2-5 by $2.50 a bag. (The Anderson is $23.50 a bag with no volume discount)

    The supplier did mention that Anderson's with dimension was more reasonable but that the normal fertilizer without control products was much more expensive. Don't ask me why as I really don't know. Let us know if the rest of the Anderson's line is more affordable than Lesco.

    We're switching to Anderson's this year, and they back up all of our applications (grubs are a biggie). Price is good, support is good.

    Whitey,

    Which 25-2-5 Lesco product are comparing to that price? I was looking for an analysis like that with Barricade from Lesco. I used that analysis with Dimension in the past but I was told Lesco does not make that analysis with Barricade.

    Jerry,

    I hear ya!

    :laugh:

    To everyone else,

    I wonder why when Lesco/JDL is found to be higher they are crooks and evil and where Andersons and the other are higher, nobody ever talks about it?

    I am glad to see how prices are all over the board for everyone!

    I ended up checking 3 places on fert prices and THANK GOD my Lesco was cheaper on almost everything!

    They were a dollar cheaper then everyone on their Dimension combo.

    Anyways.....I think that shows us all the LESCO isn't screwing anyone. It is just regional pricing!

    That Lesco price for the 25-2-5 50% was a pendi pre-M. Lesco's item # 084649. The Dimension is restricted here, I can't use it until I go from tech to applicator next year. I think I'd rather use the Barricade over the pendi anyway.
