Good mid level Drop spreaders ?

Anyone recommend a trusty Drop spreader 

Would be for tricky gardens , small areas , near beds etc -- a spare as such to run along side more expensive broadcast spreader

Guessing plus £100 - that will last reasonably well and will work well - calibration settings ok enough to do a fair job ? Not expecting it to be faultless

    So far im coming across the Earthway 7350 and ICL classic but then not much until they get into £500 plus

    What about a hand operated rotary spreader (Scotts/ICL or Fuxtec) ?

      are they good ? i always thought they looked a bit erratic?

      in my case i need something they doesnt project so high - so ideally drop spreading as to not have chances of hitting raised ponds and other sensitives

    drop spreaders are a nightmare for applying treatments - can't get accuracy, you either miss or overdose a small strip.

    The hand spreaders are better. Where accuracy is paramount go liquid via knapsack.
