    Has anyone seen a drop spreader with skids/skis on it. I was driving past a condo and saw a persone pushing just such a thing. I couldn't stop to ask him where he got it.

    Has any seen this item?

    It doesn't cover the width of the walk, either. The Scotts 200 is a great way to go for this. It is cheap, lightweight, holds 50 lbs., and has the one hole design so it doesn't get plugged up.

    I saw the POS at Home Depot, I don't think it would last 2 storms...What is the Scotts 200?

    Currently I use my lesco lawn spreader with the deflectors in place...

    I've been using a Scotts broadcast spreader for 3 seasons.. still looks and works well. Key is washing it out/off when you wash the truck.
