Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Piece of Junk It arrived twisted. Right out of the box, the entire frame was bent so that there was enough friction on the axle that it wouldn't move. The tires were locked up and scraping the pavement. After twisting and shaping the frame I was able to get it to work and it operated ok for the first several uses. I use it to spread salt and sand mix on a long driveway and by the 5th or 6th use, the cable/control mechanism running the hopper door was broken. Next the brittle plastic housing encasing the gears cracked and fell apart. I managed to fix that with wire and some new bolts. It worked for a use or two and then the plastic plate that receives the material and spreads it cracked in half. I used hand cut pieces of an old frisbee to fix that. So right now, my one year old, 130 dollar spreader looks like it's been run over by a truck and I'm very careful with all of my equipment. Save your money. Especially if you don't like figuring out ways to fix cheap plastic toys. December 7, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Poor design Out of the box the unit is not square. The axle is angled with respect to the rest of the assembly. No change after fully assembled. Upon use, the feet/anchors that allow it rest are so low to the ground that it catches newly cut grass making it very difficult to use. If you elevate the angle to compensate, the spreader becomes unbalanced and will dump the load at the smallest ground obstacle. If you hit a rock or a tree root, you will topple the entire load if you're not very very careful. I've owned a much older spreader for many years and it was a very different design and very easy to use. The unit cannot spread insecticide pellets requiring a light coverage. Center of gravity is too high at rest which means that at rest on a concrete surface, the slightest bump will topple the entire unit. At rest, the unit should be stable. While moving, the unit should be stable if it hits a small rock. This unit, because it is top heavy, is not stable. Also, the pin doesn't sweep over the opening to clear obstruction. Yes, I can install my own, but I shouldn't have to. Not happy with the product October 7, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Spreader Product well worth it. Does a great job for what we have to use it for. Multi purpose use February 10, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great purchase The spreader was easy to assemble and easy to use. February 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Purchase We were looking for the steel containers for our 10,000 square foot. The attachment to the truck was fine for the parking lots and driveway. However we needed something more practical for the miles of walkway. The previous spreaders lasted only a year. We wanted some that would last and was easy to use. This product was convenient and protected the contents. January 13, 2015
