Dump Cart And Broadcast Spreader
Posted March 31, 2012 - 11:44 AM
For a dump cart I would prefer one with a plastic box instead of metal, but I am not picky. I looked at the dump carts at TSC last week and they seemed a bit flimsy. I don't need a big one and I really don't want to spend more then $200, but closer to $125 to $150 would be better.
For the tow broadcast spreader I will be using it for fertilizer and maybe some grass seed. I think a plastic bin would be better, but I guess the ones with metal gears are more stout? I think pneumatic tires would also be best. I don't need a big one, but I don't really want to push a broadcast spreader over more then 3/4s of an acre. For this I am looking at around $200
If anyone has any recommendations, I would greatly appreciate it as I am pretty new to all this stuff.

I stopped at the home depot on the way home to see if they rent a tow spreader but they don't. They did have some stuff in stock so I was looking at this brinly dump cartfor $179 and this brinly spreader for $169. It would be cheaper and closer then the dealer I visited and I get a 10% veterans discount also.
Any thoughts on if these are a good buy? They are a little more expensive then I would like to spend, but the reviews seem good. I think I may be more concerned about the spreader as I guess some don't do fertilizer well when you put too much in there and it compacts a little.
