    Anyone know where to buy a good broadcastr spreader that wont get stolen and converted to serve champaign because of the cost. I was looking at Northern Tools broadcast spreaders for under $100. Is there any others to consider?

    Lesco spreaders are cheap. You pay more but they last.

    Grandview, that company is whom I priced the 350 Stainless steel Broadcast spreader. I was thinking of upgrading from a Speedygreen 3000 from which I recently handed over to a customer and said " Strength and Honor to Rome" and Handed the Speedy Green to him saying This is my gift to you...your seed will come up but not yet, not yet...in 14 days. Now I have to buy a new spreader and want to get a faster one with wheels.

    Its a Scotts spreader with plastic wheels that you can buy from any home improvement store. He seems to have made the comment in a smart a$$ fashion! :alien:

    Yeah, I mean, come on. Do a search.

    Um, I want to buy a really nice truck that starts and runs, and has a cd player and gets 20 mpg,

    but I only want ot spend about 2 grand....what should I get?

    It just becomes frustrating after you see and answer the same post threee times. Spyker, lesco, prizelawn. Pay the money, get the spreaded, if not, get teh wal mart job and use it and when it breaks get another one.

    If you want stainless steel, you will pay. Lesco has/had a sale on them for about $339. Painted carbon steel $229

    I've used Prizelawn, Lesco, and Spyker since starting in 1995 but my favorite spreader is an "commercial" Earthway model that runs about $100-$125. Light, easy to maneuver, good throw pattern BUT...You will have to treat them as a disposable. It depends on how many yard you do and how often you clean this or any spreader but the cheaper ones just don't last as long.
