    I had to tilt, push, pull, turn on its side... everything you could think of to get my aerator back there... I thought there were regulations on gates...

    We are going to make 2 sizes. Both will have some very unique features.

    We should have the small one ready to go for testing (field test units) in about 3-4 weeks. I have met with some the of lawnsite members in person for input on the design.

    It should do very well like our other products.

  4. OK, I'll jump in here folks. Obviously, we have been selling Eco Lawn Appicator for some time. I'll address each one of your criteria individually....

    Just a thought, why not a blower machine instead of spreader? I think if you could make a machine that can hold a decent amount and it be able to just blow the compost. It might be a little less, labor & time.

    Could you use the same machine that blows mulch?

    Working on a deal now with a local company out of Tampa that blows mulch. This is why I mentioned that, because if all goes well I should be watching that compost just spit out of these machines.

    But if someone out there could make an affordable piece of equipment like that, It would be sweet.:cool2::cool2::cool2:

    How much did the eco lawn run you?

    Looks pretty nice and am thinking about picking one up if its reasonable.

    I'm not trying to drop 7k on one like the nicer units.
