Nice! This reminded me that I need to buy a new spreader this spring. My Scotts Deluxe EdgeGuard is basically kaput. I really don't want to spend so much on a spreader, though. Spreaders in general seem so overpriced for what they are. Ugh.
For some of the consumer grade "premium" models, I would agree. However, the Lesco 80lb I just put together was worth every penny of it's asking price. Real 300-series stainless steel frame and fasteners, not plated or 400-series. Heavy-duty gearbox and a very sturdy hopper all riding on quality wheels & tires, not miniature or plastic. The gate controls are all stainless and heavy duty. Push-pull rods and bellcranks, no cables or plastic involved. Knowing what it cost to fabriacte such a unit, I think they've done well to mass-produce them and get them down to around $400.
