Answer: 
The flow control for the blast gate in most cases stops 90-99% of flow on non PTO driven spreaders. This control can usually be safely operated by the tractor operator while seated. All applications are unique and always follow the tractor manufacturers operating instructions and safety guidelines.

Thank you for your interest in the Agri-Fab 85 lb. spreader. Yes, the spreader controls can be accessed from most lawn tractor seats. If you have a larger garden tractor or zero turn you will have to get up to access the controls.

Answer: 
Yes, the rate is adjustable by a slide gate opening at the bottom of the hopper. The control handle has a pointer scale indicating the percentage opening of the slide gate and is connected to the slide gate by a control cable (similar to a throttle cable).

Yes, there is a flow control lever located on the stalk that rises above the tongue and protrudes toward the operator's seat on the tractor.
Move the lever to adjust the amount of flow that goes from the hopper to the spreader plate. It has a numbered scale were the larger numbers will allow for more flow.

Answer: 
I don't know if it will or not. I suggest that you try a small amount in it and see what happens. My thought is that the weight of the soil will be to much for this spreader, unless you use a small amount at a time.

Answer: 
Dear LK - Thank you for inquiring about an Agri-Fab spreader for your lawn care needs. Agri-Fab spreaders are designed to distribute grass seed, fertilizer, granular herbicide and ice melt. At this time Agri-Fab does not make a spreader for high moisture media such as top soil.

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 72 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't buy this spreader I purchased this spreader for my lawn tractor and it was a big mistake. It is hard to use, because the lever is behind your back and you cannot reach it easily, plus you can't see what's happening. I burned my lawn because even using their setting suggestions it applied to much fertilizer. The stop for the lever that operates the shut off will move no matter how tight you make it, and not being able to see anything it just sucks. June 16, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Difficult to assemble This spreader was very difficult to assemble. First, the assembly manual was missing from the box, and the online instructions did not show how to assemble the wheel and axle to the frame. I eventually figured it out by studying the replacement part diagram, but it was rather annoying. Also, 4 of the bolts were the wrong length (luckily too long rather than too short). And, the nylon wingnut's ears snapped off the first time it tightened it. But, once assembled it worked as expected, and is more stable than the old Speedy Green that it replaced. I can deal with buying a replacement wing nut. So, I do recommend this product, but only for those of you who can handle a little frustration during the assembly process. April 22, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dissapointed I purchased this product two months before i had the occasion to use it. When i did use it to spread some granular insecticide and fertilizer the cable that controls the gate became separated from its casing. So at this point to operate the gate i must hold the cable casing while pulling the handle. This process causes me to kneel next to the spreader to open the gate and while i mount the vehicle fertilizer piles up. For the money spent i expect a durable quality product and in that i am disappointed, and weary of agrifab May 2, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by terrible piece of equipment This is a piece of junk...used for the firs t time today...on first pass on lawn, the part of the housing fell off, the part that throws out the fertilizer stopped working...ten feet later one wheel stopped causing the spreader to turn over, dropping about twenty pounds of fertilizer on the lawn. if you are foolish enough to buy one, save the receipt, would need it for the refund. Thank you. April 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I love the ease of using this spreader. I have 5acres to seed for pasture and to fertilize. With this spreader on the back of my riding lawn mower I was able to finish in no time at all. April 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DO NOT BUY if you have any Hills on your property do not buy the spreader. the wheelbase is two feet too short and you will dump have your load. the carrier is only 40 pounds and will trip over on almost every turn. HANK W. Youngstown Ohio April 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Norman An update to my previous review. Attached is a picture of the Control Cable Asy p/n 49447 ( part of the 4503881 model spreader). As you can see, the plastic ring that rotates on the cam to adjust the cable for fertilizer flow is too thin and it separates from the knob after a while. I tried to Gorilla Glue it, but it only lasted long enough to do half of my 1/2 lawn. Although the part broke, the spreader otherwise is very well built. How about a stamped metal part for the knob/ring. July 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well built, great value, works great. Loaded a 50# pound bag of fertilizer , spreader worked perfectly. NO drag or stalled performance with heavy load. Spread grass seed with a good even pattern. October 5, 2013
