Shindaiwa RS76S Problems

I paid $393 for this spredder yesterday and it is broke. The first time I used it today the hopper would not close easily with fert. in the spredder. I had to go back to my $25 Scotts for the rest of the day because the metal hopper piece is now bent and plastic piece that holds it in place has been shaved away from being forced:hammerhead: I will call the dealer tommorow.

Also, they charged me $22 extra for the plastic rain cover and it listed in the parts catalog as standard equipment.
