I think Earth and Turf has a great machine that's built like a little tank! And they will have a new front broadcasting disk unit coming to GIE this October....just like Ecolawn. For me, I think Ecolawn is faster because it can broadcast larger areas...and they now have an attachment/guard that spreads the compost to the right side...so you can run the Ecolawn around the boarder of the yard, remove the guard, and then open up the machine to spread 6' to 12' based on moisture of product. Earth and Turf is 3' drop pattern, very neat, clean, with less clean up. But I would use my Echo Blower and clean the over sprayed areas and get done quicker with the Ecolawn. But both machines are very good!!! Up North, we don't use sand very much....and I will be using compost....so for me Ecolawn is the best for my uses. And after Monday, demoing the Ecolawn 200....might be the best of all. Larger hopper, two front broadcasting disks, and should be able to handle more moisture than the Ecolawn 100. I'm getting 7 yards of compost Monday morning in my dump trailer, and I'll see what the new Ecolawn 200 can do!?!?
