The EcoLawn topdresser sux. Conveyor won't turn till it's almost empty, spinner belt pops off, bridges because of poor hopper design, you'll burn your paw pushing the hopper door handle down, the gear box whines. It took 3 hrs & multiple phone calls to convince the "Authorized Distributors" in my area that they were actually distributors. Went to an open house in my area & saw the machine, asked the rep there if I could demo it on a small job before buying, he didn't want to. I went back to buy one & the store told me they had no idea what I was talking about. I told them I saw it at an open house at THEIR store & they told me maybe it was a random distributor that snuck in. I left two messages for the contact person for EcoLawn in my area & got no response. Finally found a used one on eBay that was only used a 5 or 6 times for 4,000.00. If you run dusty dry compost it'll probably work. I live in New Hampshire so nothing is dry till July. Is there anything else out there that's good?
