    For Sale 10 Month Old Lesco Hps Spreader. May Have Been Used 15 Hours If That. Looking For A Local Buyer. Will Post Pics And More Details Tonight. Near Perfect Condition. Reason I Am Getting Rid Of It Is Because I Bought A Permagreen Yesterday From Lesco. No Longer Need It, I Am A One Man Show And Cant Use Them Both At The Same Time. Someone Will Get A Really Good Machine. I Only Work 2 Days A Week When My Kids In School So This Is A Very Lightly Used Machine. Not A Day To Day Use Machine.

    Here's some pics. They are pic's of several holes I drilled. They are very small 3/16" holes. You can see by the "nubs" on the tires that this machine was used only a couple of times.

    What's with the holes? Did you use this granular pre-m? Looks a little "yellow or red". I might be interested in this though.

    I put a small tank on the back fenders, and a boom on the front to see if I could spray and spread at the same time. It was a waste of money. Spent $400.00 bucks on it all and it wasnt consistant enough to use. I still have the tank, folding boom, and tee jets. Its sitting in the shop. The only thing I got rid of was some of the hose. It was a weekend project that never amounted to anything. The hole on the handle bars was an on and off switch, and a valve to close one side of the spray tips. I think the electric motor was a flojet (?????????) not sure but can go look. It had a by-pass hose to recirculate for agitation and a pressure regulator for calibration. Tried it out on my own lawn and was not happy so I took it all off.

    The yelloe color is andersons pro-pendi w/fertilizer. I use it on fescue. The red color is dust from shale roads.
