Gentlemen, I am looking for options to apply fertilizer in two different scenarios at my work place. First, I have about 3 acres of non-irrigated lawns to maintain. I fertilize only 3 times a year. Sometimes I apply grub control. I have a ZTR, Gator, and compact tractor for power. Second, I have 1/4 to 1 acre nursery plots that I apply ag. products (fertilizer) to. I am familiar with Vicon pendulum spreaders and Gandy drop spreaders. An 8 foot Gandy costs almost $5,000 dollars!!!!! I'm stuck between wanting an efficient system, but I can't justify the high cost to do something a few times a year. Are there other high quality spreaders out there that are ACCURATE for less $$$$$$? Thanks for any input.
