I'm looking into purchasing a broadcast spreader for my 1/4 acre. I've got my X758 which is more than cable to handle a rear mount broadcast spreader, or I could go with a walk behind unit that is likely easier to use on my current property. Within the next year or two I do hope to move to a larger piece of property of 3-6 acres. I will be using this for fertilizer, grass seed, potentially drop seeding. No plans to use it for cement. If I'm going to buy something I've always preferred to buy it right the first time, which means it should be stainless steel IMO to prevent issues down the road. I'm open to thoughts as I've never purchased one previously.
The spyker is the only one with metal gears, whereas the other two are a hard plastic/nylon/something scientific.
I have considered the following:
