I've been using the Ryan for about 7 years now, time to get a new one. I've been very happy with results but wish it was a little easier operating on small residential properties. Considering a Lesco for this purpose but I have concerns about seed placement vs. the Ryan as I'm not as confident that the box drop method makes the same soil contact and therefore gives the same success as the Ryan disc placement might. I'm sure on bare soil it is fine but we upsell overseeding a lot and that means doing thin lawns or even thicker lawns to introduce a new variety. Any thoughts on what the success may be like. Would really like to hear from those of you using the Lesco, especially if you have experience with the Ryan as well.
