Bob says:

On my yard, I have to use a walk behind spreader, and I can’t easily follow my fertilizer, liming, and top dressing schedule when my tool won’t spread evenly or tears up. After thrashing & trashing four big box store broadcast spreaders over about five years I said enough! I’m getting the best full featured spreader for a residential size yard I can find. That is the Spyker P20-9010 with attachments. For what I’ve spent on poor quality, I could have had two of these, one for the back yard … for me, … and one for the steep front yard … for my son :)

I hate that it cost you four spreaders to realize it, but it’s good to hear you’re making the switch! Actually we’re seeing a lot more homeowners registering spreaders on spyker.com recently, I imagine because they’ve had experiences like yours. Thanks for your support and taking the time to write!
