Many previous links are now unavailable, so I just talked to my local LESCO freinds. Easiest way to get a Spyker 288 spreader for $299: Call Chad at John Deere Landscape. (515) 986-9700. He's in Grimes, IA (a suburb of Des Moines). You will probably have to fill out a new credit app, but it's easy, and he can help you with it as well as direct shipping to you. Spyker's new 288 model is "bar none" the best professional lawn spreader on the market. Trust me on this. We've used them all, and the 288 is heads above anything out there. Once you open the box, you will see what I mean.
