    Looking for a commercial grade push broadcast spreader for reseeding native grasses, who makes the best one?? Bought one on fri. locally and used it for about 5 minutes and it started falling apart on me, took it back (agri-fab). I need a good one, how are earth way?? Found them on Northern Tool? Thanks!

    I have a LawnPride CBRIII stainless steel model.

    I don't know what it cost, a friend had 2 or them and he gave one to me. It is awesome as far as spreading goes. Gets the job done so much faster than using the old Scotts broadcast spreader.

    The Lesco and the Lawn Pride CBR series are going to be the best. They will all run you between 300- 400 bucks.

    Buy the Lesco its more up front but you can walk into any Lesco service center and they will have the parts on the shelf to fix it if it breaks. Can you do that with any other spreader?
