Does anyone use Agri-Fab broadcast spreaders?

only downside to it is it throws the majority of the material to one side, instead of an even broadcast as some of the others such as Spyker, etc. However i do have an agri-fab 125# tow behind that works fine.

It's not even close to a real spreader. It works great for speading seed, lime, or salt, but that is it. You DEFinitely don't want to use it for a calibrated spread of fert..

Lesco spreaders are tough and work good.They are about the same price for a much better machine.

I have a agri-fab pull behind spreader I purchased way back before I started my biz. Be careful with it on hillsides and rougher areas. I hit a bump on a hillside in my backyard and almost turned the spreader over. What a mess that would have been. (A dark green circle with a burn spot in the middle) Since then I have purchased a Lesco push spreader (much more accurate) and plan to purchase a JRCO electric mounted spreader in the next year. All I use the agri-fab spreader for now is when someone comes by and wants to borrow one.;) BTW my agri-fab has cracks in the poly hopper radiating out from the mounting bolts and is only a matter of time before they get worse and cause problems.
