    My local Lesco dealer no longer carries the square basket type screens we've used for several years.

    Are any of you familiar with a company who might make these that would fit Lesco spreaders?

    Thanks,

    Gary

    Why don't you just make one?
    Get some mesh screen at the hardware store, bend it and tie strap it together. Shouldn't take too long, and should be cheap, too.

    That's exactly what I did for the first 15 years I was in the business. But I liked the Lesco versions better, and would like to have access to them again.

    The company that made the basket types was turf tech, out of Cleveland, Ohio. Not sure what their number is, might check with directiory assistance. Good Luck!

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but are you referring to the basket types, or the expanded metal?

    When I bought mine, I got a peice of expanded metal.

    You can get one of those from a sheet metal shop for maybe $10.
