    Spend the money on a quality spreader if you plan on doing many applications. I bought a Scotts pro spreader this year after using a cheaper Earthway for the past couple seasons. Wish I would have spent the $305 first time around. It is much easy to push, more accurate, and holds more product.

    The spreader I bought was painted and came with the cover. Stainless was about $90+- more.<br>I think the model was a Accu2000. I am pleased with it.

    I think Scotts and Lesco spreaders are very simular in their mechanics&gt; I have 2 Lesco stainless and love them.
