Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Does the job good. This drop spreader is perfect for my yard and pasture. The grass seed and fertilizer spread is easy to control and the bin holds exacty what I need. Also, refilling the bin, when necessary,is easy and quick. It's shortened my maintenance work tremendously. June 18, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It's built pretty solid for a non professional drop seeder It worked great. It's built fairly solid. I use it for over-seeding in my yard. Assembly was similar to other attachments I've bought. It took me about 2 hours, which is normal for me when assembling lawn mower attachments. I thought the directions were pretty easy and straight forward. If you are not mechanically inclined, I recommend having it shipped to the store and have Home Depot assemble it for you. I do not recommend having it delivered to your home. Like other attachments I've bought from Home Depot and had shipped, the box came fairly beaten up; the items inside had scratches and minor dents. I recommend delivering it to the store so that if this happens, you can deal with the situation at the store. July 22, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good purchase The spreader was easy to assemble and appears to be of good quality. I used it once and it worked very well. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a "pull-behind" spreader. November 11, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by not for me I'm generally a home depot fan, but this spreader was a big disappointment. Shipping was very fast and assembly wasn't bad, but when I tried to adjust the drop rate per the set-up instructions, one of the parts broke off in my hand. Spreader was rendered useless before I ever even used it. Replacement part cost $11.00 shipped - for a part worth maybe $2.50! Never could get it adjusted to drop lime at the same rate from both sides (left/right) of the hopper. I like the pneumatic tires and the large capacity - but overall not what I was hoping for in this price range. May 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great purchase I'm glad that I choose this product it worked well and would recommend it to others. October 17, 2014
