    Thanks. I wish I had lawns people would actually let me/ fertilize themselves. Most of my customers barely even water

    Went out to aerate, oversees and fertilize today. Finally broke down and bought a commercial spreader... But even then I bought it on sale. Hahaha

    Just a little job to clear all this debris and then plant some shrubs. Some good progress before it got dark. Only an hour in

    Nice work. But just so you know that is not a commercial spreader at all. You will get some use out of it but don't plan on it holding up. I started out with the same one a few years ago. Not trying to be negative at all just giving you a heads up

    I believe It's listed on their website as a commercial spreader, but I could be wrong. I bought it because it was on sale. It is a linkage not a cable and overall I'm happy with it. I don't use it much so it should work out good for me. Thanks for the heads up though.

    That is our 2150 and is our Commercial 50# spreader I can assure you. It’s one our most popular model, but it’s not our professional unit – the C22HD. A suggestion before the unit gets too old, get some Fluid Film and spray the inside of all the tubing - especially the lower handles and frame thoroughly - to the point of running out the feet and at the axle on the lower handles to prevent rust. I suggest removing the bolt that holds the lower handle to the frame from each side and spray it in there – you get both parts at the same time. We put that tip in the manual, but I wanted to reinforce that message now.

    If in the future you need parts consider getting the Stainless Steel versions - they have the same part number just with a -SS at the end. Keep in touch.

    Thanks for the tip Jeff. Will be sure to get some fluid film and do what you instructed ASAP
