    I looked at the Lesco High Wheel Fertilizer Spreader. Upwards of $500!

    from everything I've read, Lesco is the Cadillac of spreaders...

    Is that right? Well I do want something that's going to last.

    Actually just called a supplier here in town and a 50# Lesco is $225. I think I'll give it a shot and see how it works.

    I believe the one on Amazon that is $471 is the "Cadillac" version. The deflector is definitely nice. I purchased the add-on for my Earthway.

    I upgraded from a Lowe's Scott's model with the plastic wheels. I couldn't believe how great the larger pneumatic wheels/tires are.

    I have lost track of how long I have had this one. Bought it new 12-15 years ago. I do not use it daily by any stretch. Most of what I do is with a tractor mounted spreader. If I put one pallet a year through walk behind that's a lot. Get the best one you can afford and take care of it. If you are not sure which one you this is best, get a well madrone you like. Mine is 80# capacity fwiw.
