    I'm looking for the best push spreader out there. I've been using the standard agri-fab spreaders for years with pretty good results. I'm currently looking at the stainless agri-fab with enclosed gears or the spyker 120lb pro. The spyker looks like the cadillac of spreaders...but at over 50 pounds and $500 i'm not completely sold. By the way, our trucks have pull plows, so a tailgate spreader is out of the question. Does anyone have an opinion of these 2 spreaders or experience with either. Thanks.

    The "Best" spreader out there is a Epoke Spreader....But, the best spreader comes at a price ...But its worth every penny......payup

    I thought epoke only made drop spreaders...am I wrong? I'm salting small/medium sized lots so i'm looking at broadcast style.

    lesco stainless spreader and done.

    I have used and trashed almost every steel spreader out there , they siezed up get twisted rot and die

    4 years ago I bought 5 lesco's on sale and they are all like the day I bought them. the only thing I did to them was take a step bit and drill the holes out a little on the 2 I put rock salt through. They havegone weeks without get washed off and having calcium, mag, and salt stuck to them. you can find them on craigslist.
