    Anyone know where I can find a quality drop spreader and a top quality hand and/or backpack sprayer? Used a Lowes special (Scotts) earlier this year and it was nothing short of a waste of money. Not to mention plastic wheels dont push very easy when loaded down. I hear Lesco make some top quality spreaders but cant seem to find who carries them. Same with sprayers. Bought the most expensive Slowes (lowes) special and they last about two months before falling apart. Keeping the receipt in the truck and constantly stopping at the store to do a 'swap' out is getting old. Any good advice much appreciated!
    Thanks
    Clint

    Lesco sells Lesco. Find your nearest Lesco supplier. I recommend the stainless broadcast spreader. $300-$400

    Why do you want a drop spreader? Why not a rotary spreader?

    The best backpacks or hand cans we have found are made by SP Systems replacement parts are easy to find.
