    The cheap spreaders may not spread evenly, and they are highly prone to rust. Stainless steel is better.

    they make a spread only zspray, and basically will make whatever you want, but if it is out of your budget, the hps from lesco or its copy by cub cadet will do what you want for less money i am sure. heck, you can use a jrco spreader on a ztr mower if you want. we did 4 years and have a nice used one still for sale. fyi

    grass man we have 2 large hoppers (jrco and a stainless ) and it ties up a unit durring the wrong time so it dont get used much due to the cutting the crews do . tried it

    my issue isnt the type of ride on or the prices its the maintenance of something used 3-4 times a year and the miles of state we cover overall /

    i guess i understand the mowers and such being tied up. sounds still like you need a dedicated machine like a hps or just a new fleet of push spreaders. after using spyker hoppers on our zsprays i would opt to look at their push spreaders too.

    lol this is why i ask how to tell , i deffineatly need less tools to store we cover from memphis to cookville TN , if you look on a map you see why i say 1 unit is impossible to cover the area we cover who would you know how many to get . we will move on terfcos once i know about how many it will take . i think 3 1 in east 1 in west and one central might work but i will need them before the first cycle starts or it puts me in a spot then .
