    Anyone ever use one of these?

    I was looking at one when I was picking up my Dimension the other week. I'll be using it on my 2 acre yard (I'm a homeowner) 5 times a year. Pushing the broadcast is getting tougher each year :) I also looked at the HPS Ride-On. The Hyd. Driven Broadcast price is $1800 vs. the HPS Ride-On which is $3000.

    I fortunately have minimal weeds...I walk with a 1 gallon sprayer with Momentum for spot spraying, so need to have a sprayer option.

    Thanks in advance for any input...pro or con

    I have used them, they are better than pushing but you still have to walk! would probably be great for your home lawn. and would last a homeowner a lifetime as long as you clean off after each use.
