There are a lot of parts though, so set aside some time and patience to get the job done and be sure you start by verifying that you actually have every part.

Can this spreader be used with bagged salt, or will it just work with a much smaller crystal, like ice melt?

Answer: 
I used solar salt for my clients. (water softener salt) which has mostly smaller granules up to 1/4 inch but some up to 1 inch. The larger opening on a setting of 10 works great for the larger materials. However the smaller stuff like Ice Melt or rock salt has what are call "fines" which will spread but can clog if wet or damp.

Yes it will. The opening at the base of the hopper can open very wide. Although I don't use salt any more. You'll just need to be careful about the rock hard clumps that salt turns into when it gets wet

Answer: 
As long as the lime or fertilizer is granular, yes you can spread it with this spreader. The flow control plate on my unit closes almost all the way, but no amount of adjustments will get it entirely closed. The remaining gap is small enough that granules will not pass through, but it would probably leak a bit for powdered lime.

Answer: 
Thank you for considering the Agri-Fab 130 lb. spreader for your lawn care needs. All of Agri-Fab's spreaders are designed to spread pelletized lime in addition to grass seed, fertilizer, granular herbicides and ice melt. However powdered lime is too fine and will not work with our spreaders.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 44 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Food Plot Helper Bought the spreader to use for fertilizing my food plots. Assembly was fairly easy. Illustrations sufficient to assemble it in about 15 minutes. The assembled product seems solid, the wheels and handle are a huge improvement over standard yard spreaders. Our soil is very sandy. I fertilized one food plot after completing the discing and planting. The unit was difficult to push through the sand, even with the larger wheels when loaded with 50 lbs of fertilizer. That might just be an issue with our soil in Florida. The spreader performed well on my other food plots when using it before I plowed. The spread pattern gave me solid coverage, just over 10 feet wide per pass. No loose or stressed joints after finishing 4 acres. I will update my review after planting fall food plots. May 20, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good spreader, poor quality control and customer service at company Spreader arrived with open parts bag and parts strewn around inside box. Assembly was manageable with pics, though they'e in an unusual order of presentation, but I was missing four parts. I called the company and described the problem. The rep was totally cold and simply took my part numbers, there was no acknowledgement of the issue or apology for the inconvenience. I inquired about expedited shipping and was told the parts would be expedited out of the warehouse, but go regular post from there. Four days later I had my parts, which isn't bad for normal shipping, but delayed the job that the spreader was purchased for. Once assembly was completed, the spreader works fine and easily traverses the lawn at nearly full weight. April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It pays to spend a little extra SmartSpreader 130 lb. Push Broadcast Spreader was more money than the Scotts spreader, but after reading the reviews, I'm glad I went with the SmartSpreader June 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Solid Spreader Certainly a big step up from the awful Scotts and other cheap consumer spreaders. Rugged and handles rough terrain well. Assembly: some say it's tough. It is a bit complicated. The photos are good but it would benefit from detailed instructions. I finished and found that I had a leftover part that should have been installed early on in the process. Managed to jury-rig it into place but detailed instructions would have prevented this oversight. May 24, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Front left wheel retention. Have not used the spreader yet. Just spent 3 hours putting it together. Rolled it around the yard and the front left wheel will not stay on. The little plastic retainer button pushed over the axel is totally inadequate as a retaining device to keep the wheel on. The right drive wheel is no problem because of the pin that holds the wheel on and so that that that wheel can drive the spreading device. There should be another pin on the outside of the wheel on the left side to keep it on the axel. There is no hole in the axel at that point to place a pin. That part of the design is flawed to a point in my estimation. Any suggestions before I return the spreader. August 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product This unit is pretty heavy duty. The assembly was easy and the unit performs great. April 5, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Quality Control My new broadcast spreader, model 45-04621 arrived with two left hand tire attachment rods instead of one for each side. Agri-Fab is sending the correct part but having waited a week for the unit to arrive and now having to wait another week for the missing part will delay my projects. Our company is located in New England and it takes time for grass seed to germinate... Winter comes sooner than once would think? July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GREAT MACHINE !!! This baby rocks! We salted our small parking lot and sidewalks by hand. The technique left clumps of unspread salt along with some missed black ice spots. Then, along came the AGRI-FAB Spreader. WOW!!! It spreads an even 10 ft wide path of salt in a very uniforn fashion. E Z flow adjuster for light to heavy coverage and a very large discharge port for larger volumes of salt if so desired. This ain't your daddys fertilizer spreader! Price was a bit steep but its well worth the savings of time and product. Thanks Agri Fab and Home Depot. Item was shipped and received within three days and e z to assemble. March 13, 2012
