The one I have is from lowes. The only reason I bought it is because I figured why but something expensive if I am going to buy a plow soon so I went cheap. It does its job but I would not recommend it. Im not sure how long it is going to last. I would stick with another Airens just get one that is more powerful. The spreader is a lawncrafter or something. I got it at a yard sale for $5 and its only use is for sidewalks. Eventually I want to get a Lesco I just saw one last night at a Trade Show I was at and there pretty nice.
