I have made the mistake now to purchase 2 of these products. I typically only use this 3 time per year and never got more than 4 years of service. The first one I purchased the entire drive system rusted and locked up. The second, the plastic parts corroded causing the plate that limits how much fertilizer is dispenses to fall off (and yes while I was fertilizing causing the unit to dispense all the fertilizer in no time (I hope this hasn't burnt the grass). After this I contacted customer service at AgriFab (heck it has a 3 yr warranty). After emailing back and forth and them defending their position that my unit was out of warranty, they never offered to replace the plastic pieces. So during checkout the two parts I needed came to $19, granted, not a huge investment. But they have the audacity to charge $7.80 for shipping on top of $19 for parts.
So be ware this item will break within 5 years, parts are high margin and shipping is an insult. Spend the extra bucks for a better quality, heck, just read the review posted.

Love this spreader. Love the Home Depot. The spreader does exactly what it says and is very sturdy. I had a spreader before this one that only held two 17 lbs. bags of fertilizer which made for constant stopping to refill. This spreader holds a whole lot more which makes my job a whole lot easier. You won't be disappointed with the purchase at all!

I bought one 15 years ago and it lasted until the hopper cracked too bad and was time to replace it. The new one looks just about the same. Hope it lasts as long.

I was hoping to get a lot of good use out of this spreader, but it failed terribly. The drive shaft kept bending which in turn would lock up the differential gear. It would only hold 50 lbs. (instead of 100 lbs. that was listed) and that 50 lbs. seemed to be too much for the frame to hold. On a positive side, home depot returned the item, no questions asked. Spend a little more and get a good one.
