Can anyone recommend a decent tow-behind broadcast spreader? It seems like everything shares the same reviews... cheap gears, poorly designed metering gates, on/off levers that won't stay in position, etc. I'm looking for something around 175 lbs capacity or so. Agri-Fab seems to get mixed reviews. It appears they OEM them for some John Deere spreaders. Does anyone have any experience with the Frontier spreaders like the SS1022B? Are they also based on Agri-Fab running gear? Are they any better? I would hope so as they cost around $700 compared to $250-300 for the better grade Agri-Fab units.
I don't mind paying a bit more for something that is truely built better and will last longer.
