i recently purchased the lesco spreader (40lb) and the optional deflector kit. Upon installation, the deflector is further away from the rotating spreader tray than expected, but I trusted the lesco product. Upon utilizing it for the first time, all of the weed killer/fertilizer hit the deflector and instead of staying on the rotating tray, it dropped down in concentrate on the property line and burned all of the grass. I compared it to the neighbors lesco 80lb spreader and the support rods holding the plastic deflector appear to be welded straight down instead of somewhat at an angle as you can see by the photo. The puzzling thing is that I called Rittenhouse and I was told by the manager that he wasn't a big fan of the deflector and to take it off and that I could just get used to the spreader pattern with practice. When I said that the deflector was over one hundred dollars and was way too expensive just to be discarded, I was told to send it back, but clean it up because he had to sell it as new. Although it's troubling that you would sell a product that you don't stand behind and it was very nice that he said he would refund my money, it doesn't fix my issue. I shouldn't have to get used to the spreader pattern. Is there anyone else having this issue? The manager actually directed me to this site to see if anyone else was having the same problem with his product. Thanks in advance for the help.
