Customer Questions & Answers

Can this be used with a zero turn mower??

If it cant .What can I use on my 5 acres?
Asked by: Anonymous
Be very cautious especially if it is a homeowner ztr; the transaxles are not designed to tow loads as they will overheat and fail then you have a very expensive repair cost. The down side to most ztr mowers is the capability to tow like you can with a lawn/garden tractor.

will it work with wet rabbit manure?

Asked by: Anonymous
I would think if he manure is dry it would work. I would suggest that before you put the manure in the hopper that you first put it a cloth or plastic bag and shake it enough so that it is not lumpy and them put it in the hopper..

Customer Reviews

42 in. Poly Pro Tow Drop Spreader is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 106.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well made. A couple small suggestions Bought this last season and used it about 4 times since. Spreads very evenly. Seems quite well built overall. Wish it had a calibration comparison chart. Even if it did, you still need to check it, but at least get me close. More important...can you change the way the wheels are oriented so the air valve is on the outside of the rim? Pain to air them up in the spring. I plan on adding an extension to the control handle. Might I suggest making yours in two pieces so you can tilt toward the operator or higher depending on need?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works well in some situations. This works better with regular lawn tractors than the zero radius type mower that I have. The open/close handle can't be operated on my type mower as the rear engine forces the unit too far away from the operator. I think it would also be beneficial for the unit to sit higher off the ground as when applying Plus2 with weed killer on suggested wet grass the wet grass will clog the unit (unless you really scalp your lawn before application). Works well applying fertilizer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Uneven feed rate Trouble getting the spreader to distribute product evenly. The right side of the divider empties quicker than the left side. The spreader also fails to shut off completely. I have readjusted the slide but have not had the opportunity to use it since. Hopefully the adjustment will help.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from USA made I just assembled this and used it today to spread lime and then fertilizer. Assembly went fairly smoothly, and was happy with the quality of the parts. It's a little tricky to get both sides to spread evenly. After 3 adjustments, all seems fine now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty sturdy and works well This unit works as advertised, and should last for at least ten years or so for occasional use. Only thing that is unhandy is that the tire stems end up on the inside and are a little hard to get to. Drops fertilizer pretty evenly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product I purchased the spreader last spring purposely for spreading granular lime. I live on 2 1/2 acres which is mostly hilly and rotary spreaders have the weight of the lime setting up to high and on the hills tend to tip over. This spreader sits low and the weight is distributed over the entire width. No tipping over with this unit. It did just what I wanted. The only issue I had was the difficulty of evening out the amount of drop across the entire width of the spreader. It has two drop gates which are somewhat adjusted separately. With these gates being as long as they are some of the gates would open wider than the rest thereby dropping uneven amounts. As I said I was using it for granular lime which wasn't a big problem but may be an issue with lawn fertilizer. For that reason I only gave it 4 stars. It may be difficult to see in the picture but some of the openings are open more than others mostly towards the ends or center. The adjustment is made at the ends of the single connecting rod. In my opinion, if that rod was more rigid it wouldn't bend when opening & closing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and high enough off the ground I have used it one season, it has enough clearance to use on wet lawn as some fertilizer recommend. You don't have the dust problem as with rotary spreaders, I am well satisfied with the drop spreader.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy assembly I bought from HD, took about 1.5 hours to assemble (one person). Trick to attach lower side brace remove wheels. Rest was simple.
