    Anyone used a John Deere push broadcast spreader? Will they work with dry sand?

    we have one client who used to require the use of sand on their brick patio entryway. They supplied agrifab spreaders, which had a 1" w x 3" l opening on the bottom. Those spreaders seemed to work best.

    The JDL spreaders have three smaller holes on the bottom and probably would continue to bridge up and get stuck.

    So I would recommend the agrifab over the JDL in that application.
