Precision DS4500RD

Of the two models of drop spreader offered by PLM, the DS4500RD Deluxe Step-Up model is the larger and will hold 34kg of fertiliser.

The spread pattern covers a 56cm swathe. Flow control is via a fingertip-operated lever on the handle. It feels quite positive but the connecting cable is free to snag on other equipment in the shed or as it is off-loaded from a transport vehicle.
Because the wheels on this unit are polypropylene, care should be taken to consider ground conditions. The hopper is strong — it’s made of heavy-duty polypropylene — and the U-handle frame tubing is powder coated. A nice touch is the foam handle grip.
We reckon the DS4500RD represents good value for money and could easily fit the bill for those who are involved in lawn maintenance.
