    Can anyone tell me where to look for a walk behind spreader? Currently I use a grass seed spreader- it do not work too well. Thanks PS I need the spreader to use for salting of driveways and sidewalks.

    If you buy one of the expensive walk behind fertilizer spreaders with the rubber tires they work great. We have used one for years. They seem to spread only bag salt thought. Open it wide up, if it clogs just shake it as you walk.

    Commercial broadcast spreader

    I just got a call & a flyer from my snow plow dealer. Meyer is selling a walk behind broadcast spreader made out of stainless steel and polypropylene. It has a 70# hopper capicty. It has a special deflector for side walks & can spread up to 12 feet. It is called the "Hot Shot". If you go to www.meyerproducts.com & go to new products they have pictures of it. They run around $300 to $400 which is well worth if it. The one I am currently using is rusting out from 1 season. I am going to buy the $400 one after we get a couple of snows here.

    That is pretty much the same as I have. I do still have about 9 in stock if anyone needs them.
