Had to assemble. No big deal as the directions are excellent. Gate opening control handle is flimsy, but managed to use it without destroying it. Need to be careful with flow rate. As with all of these things, the rate is "approximate". When I used the recommended opening, it REALLY dumped a lot of material. But I was watching, adjusted it to a much slower rate and it worked fine. Got the job done. Did a pretty good job. Only took a few laps to figure it out. You really can reach the controls from your mower's seat. I'm glad I bought it, but I'll treat it with kids' gloves. Should last a long time as nothing that touches the fertilizer is metal.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cory Very nice spreader
Did a lot of research prior to buying this spreader. Very pleased with the purchase. Spread fertilizer very evenly. Very solid. I have a pretty hilly yard and it was not tippy at all. I did read in several reviews that the it tends to vibrate shut during use. I have used it to spread 3 bags of fertilizer and it did tend to vibrate shut on me. I did see some diy fixes that others have used but have not had the time to try it out. A bungy cord worked for me. Even with that issue, I feel for the price it is a great unit. I like the large capacity. I put in two 50 pound bags of fertilizer and it handled it no problem. I would recommend.

Spreader was fairly easy to assemble except that the hole in the axle that the cotter pin goes in to attach to the agitator was not drilled in the center of the axle. Had to enlarge the hole in the plastic coupling to get it to line up with the axle hole and get the cotter pin through it. Otherwise pretty simple to assemble. Having the parts all shrink wrapped step by step made it easy to put together. Suggest reading through the maintenance part of the manual before assemble and having some axle grease on hand to assemble it with for lubrication.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LivingTheDream Not for zero turn mowers
The unit works fine behind a conventional riding mower. But if you have a zero turn mower forget it. You can't reach the lever to start or stop the flow of fertilizer. Emailed manufactor to see if they offered a kit to extend lever forward for zero turn mowers, they do not.

An excellent product, well made and appears very durable. The instructions and the packaging of the parts are the best I've seen in many ages. All the parts are packaged in a series of packets and are related to figures of assembly in sequence. No fumbling through bags of loose parts. When assembling the wheels onto the axle you will need two more 5/8" washers to take up the play between the wheel hub and axle stop. No big deal only wish the mfg had provided them. I believe another review also addressed this need.Adjusting the drop lever required some trial and error but was easily set. Pull up the manual for reference. Did 2 acres in short order.
