Customer Questions & Answers

Will this spreader work with the Toro Zero Turn lawnmowers?

Asked by: Bigdog
I am using mine behind a Craftsman (Cub Cadet) 42" Zero Turn Radius Mower and it works just fine. Obviously, you have to have someone else open the gate as you begin moving or be very quick to open the gate and climb back on the mower to get moving before you dump a pile of product in one spot. You should not be doing square corner turns while pulling the spreader. As with the directions on virtually any product that is to be spread, your turns should be reasonably gentle and smooth rather than tight.

What does the "agitator" look like? Metal or plastic? Verticle in design/position?

Asked by: Jimmy
The agitator looks like a large hair pin key that is through the drive shaft in a horizontal position in the bottom of the tub.

how large of product can be spread, compost? horse manure?

Asked by: Anonymous
Nope, even though the slide opens wide, this item is design for small granular products like seed, fertilizer and some sands or salt.

SmartSpreader 130 lb. Tow Spreader is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 153.

Just got this spreader had an old tow behind with a lousy flow control and narrower axle width and smaller diameter wheels. The Agri-Fab 130 is what I wanted in a tow behind spreader. Assembly took a bit but was not complicated, the step-by-step directions were very good. Spreader works great. The flow control I like and works well. I found it to be as stable as you can get on inclines etc. Tires have enough diameter to deal with curbs etc. Nicely designed and engineered. The material emptied right down to the bottom, no excess to worry about. I like the gear box cover to protect the gears so, maintenance will be easy. Would recommend to a friend. Love it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Out of Control Lawn fertilizer keeps spewing out of this thing even when you stop moving. You have to be very fast to slide the handle to off - but even then, the remainder of the fertilizer on the broadcaster falls straight down on the grass - where it will kill the grass. The control lever pops out of the off position from vibration and starts spewing out fertilizer even when you don’t want it. I have to pull this thing by hand because you can’t reach around fast enough to shut off the control lever. I constructed a special handle for pulling the Agri-Fab by hand. I think I’ll have to place it on the sidewalk with a FREE sign on it.

I purchased this product online so sight unseen, to replace a John Deere spreader that I had several issues with. I purchased this product for less money than I had paid for my John Deere spreader so I was somewhat anxious about my new purchase. It arrived promptly with everything in the box, no issues with missing parts. It was a snap to build. Took me about 1-1/2 hours using the instructions found in the box. I should also note that Agri-Fab has online videos of the assembly procedure if you so desire. I have had the pleasure of using this product twice now and I am completely satisfied. This is a Cadillac of spreaders compared to my John Deere. It is well designed, structurally strong and does its job flawlessly.....What more could you ask for?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good tool for your lawn I have now used this spreader for the second time and I am quite satisfied with it. I found this spreader not hard to assemble, the toughest part was trying to interpret some of the instructions. The one drawback that I found in the spreader was with the agitator hairpin that is installed in the spreader shaft inside the hopper, the first time using the Tow Spreader this hairpin came out of the shaft. I sifted through the material in the hopper and did manage to find the spacer and washer but the hairpin apparently went out with some of the fertilizer and was lost. I replaced this hairpin with a tight fitting cotter pin and have had no problems with the spreader since.

Finally got to use this spreader and very satisfied with it's performance. One has to figure out the proper settings for pellet lime and Scotts fertilizer, after that just drove around the yard until it was empty. Have about 25,000 sqft of grass so did not want to push my existing spreader any more. Assembly takes some time and effort but the finished product is quite sturdy. I recommend that you do not fill it to capacity as it will become a bit top heavy. I loaded 2 to 3 bags at a time and it worked perfectly. I have a Troy Bilt 42" lawn tractor and this fit perfectly and will empty the unit completely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Favorite Yard Toy I bought this to speed up the process of fertilizing three very large lawns for various family members. Assembling the "130 lb. Tow Spreader" by myself was a breeze, as I began by laying out all components exactly how they were shown in the directions diagram. This made them easy to locate when needed. All pieces fit perfectly, and directions were specific as to when to "completely tighten" nuts, and when to leave them temporarily loose for future steps. I finally was able to use the spreader yesterday for the first time, and IT WORKED FANTASTIC!!! Cut my spreading time from approximately six hours to just under an hour and a half. The plastic bin easily held a 15,000 sq. ft. bag of fertilizer and three 5,000 sq. ft. bags of crabgrass killer, all at the same time. I repeated that process two more times and completed all three yards in record time of 1 1/2 hours!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Spreader works but.... The pictures make bin look large, 130 lbs. seems to be a good size but the bin is not large enough. I'm sure it will carry that much weight but it will hardly hold 1 each 50 pound bag of grass seed. At this size it really needs a cover to keep from spilling when full. Would give it 5 stars if bin was larger.
