This is my first year as a licensed applicator, and my first year acquiring equipment. I started with my Scotts spreader, but after walking a 54k property, vowed to NEVER do that again. I wanted to get a Lesco spreader, but the nearest Lesco is 2 hours away. I ended up picking up a 125-lb Agri-Fab spreader until I can get the Lesco. What a piece of crap! The chute never wants to close completely, so when I turn around at the end of a row I get these little dribblies coming out. I was filling it one time, and the chute wasn't quite closed and I ended up with about a pound of fert on the street that I had to sweep up. I hereby promise myself today, that I will pick up either a Lesco or Spyker spreader next spring. Or, if my fert n squirt clients multiply enough, a Z-Spray.
