Ok I'm looking for a high quality WB spreader for to compliment my monkey grinder Earthway 3100 monkey grinder. I really like the versatility of the this Earthway spreader for many of my properties almost all are 1/2 acre or less in total lawn area. I believe this to be the fastest most efficient spreader since I fly by the seat of my pants and basically eye ball the entire process and vary the output based on speed of the hand cranking and the amount of opening. I have a recent lower back injury and I need to only use my Earthway 3100 Monkey Grinder on uneven terrain to reduce the load on one of my discs in my lower back. Thus the reason the purchase a WB. SO....how well does the HVO feature really work on the Bigfoot Spreader? Success stories? Success stories? I also want to use it to apply GCM and a variety of other non fertilizer products to aide in the breakdown of thatch.
