    Well I went to an auction yesterday and picked this up for $50. I think I got a great deal on it. It should last me as long as I need it. I plan on using it for salt and fert.

    Nice. I got the same concept. I have a fertilizer spreader just like your old one ecept mine is a scotts as well. It will work well to spread ice melter or sand for my driveways.

    You paid 1200 dollars for that spreader? No wonder you cant afford gloves.

    Thats rediculously expensive, especially when there are quality pieces available for 450 dollars.

    You could have bought 3- 36 inch wide Lescos for the same price you paid for that thing.

    Born,

    I would still use the old spreader for salt. That $50.00 dollar version from the auction retails for $450.00 ++++.
