    Stainless steel is the only thing that lasts. The Andersons stainless steel is the best and has the best adjustment (helical cone) for evenness with different fertilizers.
    However...
    ---Will you be rolling it onto trailer...or...be lifting the weight onto a pickup? Andersons and Lesco weigh about 31 pounds. (empty) If you will be lifting, try to get one that weighs around 15 or 20 pounds. Spyker, maybe.
    ---Or...the cheap plastic homeowner models are light, but barley adequate. They are disposable: get a new one every few months.

    I have the C24, It's a pretty good spreader . you can adjust the spray pattern easily, spreads nice and has a 100lb. hopper. Definately go for the Stainless.

    Thanks for the info. I will be using a trailer it so lifting won't be such a concern.

    Heres a link for a pretty good spreader carrier. I just bought the front mount carrier for a push spreader There $330 plus shipping which for me ( New Jersey) was $50 http://www.b-btech.com/AA_spreaders.htm
