    Look what I found today driving past a yard sale. $100!

    I have been wanting another one so when seeding in the fall, dont have to change materials all the time. Sweet deal.

    Blade, keep your eyes on Turfco.......legend has it they very well may beat Toro/Exmark at their own game.

    That's a awesome find. I have been wanting one that size for a while now. I just can't seem to get the will power to spend 400.00 on one. I check Craig's list every day looking for a deal.

    Most likely years down the road, once Toro/Exmark get the kinks worked out from the original LS design and improve on them. Turfco will have to come up with one great machine or copy them.

    They are usually 80 pounds capacity--but you never want to put more than 50 pounds in them. My stainless steel Scotts/Andersons is for sale cheap. Retired. Click my name to see the pictures.

    I used to have one of the LESCO spreaders and I got the cooperate office to give me my money back after the local place refused. The agitator is a weak faulty design. It's also hell to dump that pig out to switch material. If you want to travel light and not kill yourself the Earthway 22SS/c22HDS is great. Why push around an extra 30 lbs. of bloated spreader all day.

    We got about 12 of these things. They are a bit clunky but we wouldnt use anything else.
