    Were looking at replacing our sidewalk spreaders, and I see there are a lot of new products to chose from in the past couple of years.

    What is everyone using, and how do you like it?

    Found that the AgriFab 85lb spreader works well, it has the 10"x4" pneumatic tires - with a poly hopper. Pretty tough - costs about $175. Keep it washed and spray with FF. 'Earthway' has several spreaders too, in the $200 range.

    Spend the money and get a Lesco stainless. If something goes wrong atleast you can get parts. We just put deflectors on the sides so that the material dosnt go to far.
