I bought lower cost Scotts spreaders in the past and they didn't work very well - wheel's skipping over bumps, hopper jams, piles of fertilizer getting dumped on the lawn.
This one was a breeze to assemble - just flip up the handle, tighten, and go!
I loaded up 40lbs of fertilizer at a time an it handled it without a problem. The heavy rubber wheels provided great traction.
I'm 6'9" so that handles were a tad short for me but for you regular folks I'm sure they'll be plenty high enough.
I'm pretty satisfied with how it handled.
I almost forget, it even comes with a transparent plastic cover for the hopper in case it's windy or rainy!

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Ryan Not even a year old and broken
The plastic part that opens and closes the bottom (so that it will spread) is broken so it spreads even when you aren't pulling on it to open it. I haven't even owned it a year. What a piece of junk.

WORKS GREAT, HAS A NICE FEEL TO IT. THE FIRST ONE THAT ARRIVED WAS ASSEMBLED INCORRECTLY AND DAMAGE BECAUSE OF THIS AND DID NOT FUNCTION CORRECTLY. I HAD TO RETURN IT, BUT THE REPLACEMENT IS WORKING GREAT. I BOUGHT THIS MODEL BECAUSE HOME DEPOT HAD IT ON SALE WITH $15 OFF., BUT I AM HAPPY WITH IT.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Steve stable, well made
I bought this for a 1 1/2 acre property. Coverage is good and this is well built. I love the rain guard that is included and not extra $$. only negative and reason for 4 stars is that the handle angle and length should be adjustable for taller users.
Works equally well with fertilizer and rock salt.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by cf63 was very pleased with the performance of this product
spreader has one very nice feature-dial setting for broadcasting fertilizer or grass seed. Also, pneumatic tires which makes it very easy to handle and turn when in use. Item is very reasonably priced for quality of equipment.
