Call me crazy, im using low wheel 50 pounders again! I thought this out over the winter. Why push 80 # spreaders when the only run done by hand are postage stamp lawns! Medium to large are serviced with ride ons & big acreage is done with the tractor! Not only are the 50's small,lighter and better balanced, the throw the same swath as the origional lesco low wheel spreader with the open gears. Check one out, you will be impressed.
