    Which One Of These Would You Buy If You Had Your Choice? The Difference In Money For Me Is Only About $30.00

    I have used both as well as many others over the years. All I am willing to say is... I have been using Anderson's for the past two years. For the past two years, my lawns are healthier than they have ever been. Part of this can be attributed to some changes I made in the analysis. I really like the smaller prill size of the Anderson's products as well as the flexibility in analysis.

    depends if you want a spreader that throw's most of it's product to one side or not? if want that then get the lesco, if you want a spreader that has an equal throw to each side, throws product further (wide swath) and one that you dont have to throw back to your tracks with, then get the anderson. i have many of MILLIONS of square feet on mine (andersons SR2000) and it has yet to fail. i will say that i use my old lesco for spreading salt on walk ways, seems to have just enough to make it to each side with out getting it in the grass.

    Geez... I feel silly. I re-read the post and realize you were talking about the spreader. My response was based on the fertilizer.

    I have never used anything other than the LESCO spreader. Therefore, I have no opinion.
