    Good question Ian and one I have been pondering recently too - just busy with other things. Be interersted to see what may come up.

    I know there is a Sisis truspred and this wheel barrow type machine Harvester Top Dresser.

    Both larger/more cumbersome than the Bannerman (and similar price) from the photos - not tired either. 

    Think there is nothing else as well speced as the Banerman. Shame about the price and I've not seen any 2nd hand as I suspect due to being well built, will last a long time. 

    On domestic lawns Im not yet convinced about the top dresser machines as many lawns are uneven and you will need to rake/brush drag mat the dressing in. I think the only benefit of using the top dresser machine is to get a calibrated does on the lawn and hopefully not over use costly materials. That said I would like one!
