Keith Redmore

I purchased a MultiSpread 45HP earlier this year (after lots of helpful dialogue with Jeb), and recently used it to top-dress my lawn. Using the right material (properly screened compost mix), the process and results were great! Just a nice even spread through straight lines before refilling. Better than manually spreading, not as good as the more expensive power machines as you would expect, but good for my residential needs. I also like that it’s a quality built, durable, yet simple machine. Happy with the purchase of course, so just wanted to share.
