    Looks like a decent unit. Obviously, from a company advertising salt spreading, I'd imagine it has good corrosion protection. What about price?

    If my Lesco disappeared today, I'd be out there tomorrow dropping another $300-$400.:)

    Do you know the price on those? Have you tried Earthway?

    $230-$250 I think.........I can get it for $75. Someone is selling one slightly used.

    I only mentioned Earthway, Because they have some halfway descent lower end models. Their pro, or commercial spreaders are REDICULOUSLY OVER PRICED

    Don't know anything about the Meyer spreader, but I have a sneaking hunch that is is not designed for the even calibrated flow required for fertilizers and/or pesticides. Can you say "striping"?

    I do landscapes/hardscapes, no mowing. Sometimes part of the landscape is renovating a lawn, aeration, seeding etc.....that I'll do but I don't apply fert and pest on customers properties. Just leaf gro and lime aside from aeration and seeding. I bought the spreader for $65 and will work well for me. Looks to have had a days use and thats it. Even has a stainless shield on it for ice melt applications.
