Lawn compost spreader

Looking to buy a lawn compost spreader for top dressing.

Anyone got or used?

Numerous makes available with a lot  of Chinese generics with dubious reviews. Narrowed it down to Ezdoo, Walansee and Landzie, where do they get these names!

The Ezdoo comes out favourite as it has latches on the end of the roller, whereas the others the latches are in the middle where they will come into contact with the ground and presumably,  with time get damaged?

What size ? 2ft or 3ft ?

Are there any UK based suppliers?

Can't find any suppliers apart from Amazon with the obvious problems in the event of issues and the Ezdoo is unavailable at moment. 

Be grateful for advice.

  • I've not come across anything like this before.  It strikes me that you have little or no control over application rate.  I could see loam-based dressing just pouring out, and damp compost not coming out at all.  I'll stick with a shovel thanks.

    • They work well, numerous videos on YouTube

    Why not use a lute?

    • We use Lutes, the use of of a spreader negates the need to use a Lute as the material is evenly distributed.  With the shovel method it's not.

  • Speak to Dave Salt at Blade Machinery. They are long-standing UK Lawn Care Association Sponsors who import Bannerman machinery and top dressers from the Lanszie through to a powered machine. 

    • Thanks Jack, appreciated. 

  • We use a 24" Landzie and it works just great. Replacement latches are available, but we haven't needed any yet.

    We use it predominantly for applying soil. It's perfect after scarification or renovation work when we blanket overseed and then apply a fine soil top dress (Westland 35ltr bags are ideal to work with). It retains all stones, lumps etc so only a fine dressing is applied.

    It saves us hours and makes any job completed have a much more professional finish.

    Initially we thought it pricey for what it is, but it paid for itself  very quickly. No more back breaking "riddling" over patch repairs either.

    Used in conjunction with a lute for levelling out minor lawn undulations it's even better.

    • Tom, thanks that's helpful.  Have you put multi purpose compost through it? If so does it cope with it?

      • Hi Peter, Sorry we havent.  It is sold as a compost spreader so I imagine it should work ok. 

    • Hi Tom, sorry for a basic question but what are the logistics of filling the roller? Presumably take a barrow of soil to the roller, fill, roll, empty, repeat?
