    Mine did not last long. If you are going to be Spreading alot of yards Lesco is the Cadilliac of spreaders. It will last for a while if you keep it clean

    I have never used any other then a Lesco spreader, not sure why I would switch. I second the motion to keeping her clean and greased! MAKE sure the tech scrapes the darn paddle to keep the distance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Your spreader is the most simple thing in LC, don't complicate it!

    Ditto-Good spreader, especially if you don't want to spend as much for a spreader as your first car cost.

    Yea, I know its not a lesco profesional and all that, but I mean its not going to get heavy usage... I just wanted something that worked a little better then the cheapo spreaders. Any other opinions?

    If this is $80 new I say go for it.

    I've used Bigfoot, Earthway, and Lesco over the years. I use 2 Lescos now but only because they are so durable. Spread pattern was much better with Earthway.

    I really liked my Earthways but had to replace too often.
