I am within a week of possibly ordering a Perma Green (Sorry Z-spray guys but I think the PG is more suited for me right now). One of my last questions regards the Lesco spreader used for granular. There have been many remarks made about the Lesco push spreaders throwing heavy to one side and I must admit I am noticing some slight "banding" from the late fall app that I did with my new Lesco last season. My other spreader is a Bigfoot and spreads great. I am used to throwing back to my footprints. Any difference I should know about with the Lescos? Long story short, $5000 is alot to spend on a machine that might not spread evenly. Would appreciate some input from PG owners. Does the unit do any better at achieving an even pattern than their push spreaders. IMO the pattern adjustment should be a set and forget function like on my Bigfoot. Using clicks on the third hole shutoff (which you use all the time for trim passes with the deflector down) does not seem like a great way to keep an even pattern to me.
