Ok I know some of you will say do a search, and I did. I guess it is the lazyness in me,who knows . Anyway I do not want to spend more than 200 bucks on a decent spreader. I have been using the LESCO and I liked it but I am not comming off 475 smackaroos to Fert. 25 yards give or take 5. I was using one that a buddy of mine has and recently we had a misunderstanding. Even though I payed for half the frame to be replaced with stainless steal parts I am not going to bother trying to use it any more. I get mixed results on peoples reaction to the Earthway spreaders, which I have been eye balling. The 2170 looks to be a good spreader, in the pictures anyway. Could some of you fellas point me in the right direction? Thanks in advance. Caj.
