    John Deere Landscape bought Lesco last year. You can go to any JDL dealer and get one.

    Actually the JDL does not sell the original "Lesco" spreader any more. They have a duplicate one produced in China for less. You can still find the original one at any Cub Cadet Commercial dealer. Cub Cadet had been making this spreader for Lesco forever and JDL cut them out when they purchased Lesco. The Cub Cadet model is a much better built model in my opinion and priced competitively.

    That's very interesting. I was not aware of this.

    Yeah I would agree. If you can get your hands on the older better built spreaders, that is the way to go. If you look at the new JDL version closely, you can see the difference. It just looks cheap. The price is still the same though in my area. $389.00 It's funny how the same product built with cheaper parts can cost the consumer the same. :dizzy:

    Wow... I thought I had heard wrong about them outsourcing the spreaders to china. I saw some as I was walking by them at my "lesco" (I still call it that) and thought they were the same spreaders.

    Talked to my guy there and he said that JDL is selling a "Lesco" line of mowers now too. But it's NOT cub cadet pro. He said the new machines are overpriced junk and they had them painted the old Lesco green and stuck Lesco stickers on them. He said he told them it would NEVER fly, but they did it anyway. No one that likes lesco mowers is going to contine to buy them if they are crap just because they have a Lesco decal. They will just move on to Cub.
