I'm hoping to get some advice from you guys in regards to a walk behind spreader for my property. I have a little over an acre of lawn that is heavily populated with moss and very thing due to the previous owners not taking good care of it. I've got a couple dogs and they will finish it off if I can't get it to fill in. I started to dethatch it this weekend in preparation for aerating, seeding and fertilizing.
I have been looking heavily at the AM Leonard 70lbs broadcast spreader in either Stainless Steel or in black powder coat. I will likely use this unit for salting my driveway as well in the winter. I know salt will eat metal if it gets wet or sits for too long. The AM Leo model can get deflectors on the side so it can do drop spreading which is perfect for the winter on walkways.
1. Any suggestions for a broadcast spreader or is the AM Leonard 70lbs model top notch? The price is heavy yikes!
2. Is one material better than the other for winter salt us as well as seed and fert?
