Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PreEmerge2015 Excellent Spreader
Excellent spreader gives good results. Feature to block the right edge works well around flower beds etc. but would be better if you could select right or left edge. Inflatable tires are better than solid plastic but are hard plastic themselves, only inflate a little. These would be better as inflatable rubber tires but unit does work well and grip well on hilly pine straw covered yard. Spreads product very easily and evenly.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LouJ Don't waste your Money - Garbage
Even on the lowest setting product dumped out so fast that we wasted an entire bag of fertilizer. Worthless - don't waste your money. Taking it back tomorrow...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrBunny I love this item!
This is a fantastic spreader! I had the opportunity to try it at work first and within the first 5 minutes I was hooked, shortly after using it, I went online and bought one for myself.... Definitely worth it. I used 3 bags of salt on my driveway and walkway before this purchase, I cut that cost immensely! Highly recommended!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RussellLan Feed does not shut off when you release the lever
I purchased this unit hoping it would be better than the one I already have, which is also a Scotts spreader. While spreading this morning the 'feed door' would not shut when I released the feed lever when I reached the end of a run. It did this at least ten times.
I do like the feature of shutting down the right side for trimming and when working properly it was a great unit. The problem of the feed not shutting off in the past, and I assume I will see the same problem now, is that it kills the grass when you get so much fertilizer in one spot.

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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bearsfan1 Great purchase!!!
I recently bought this spreader. It is great! I love the tires! Keeps the spreader much more stable and balanced! Even on bumpy or hilly terrain. Does a great job of giving even coverage as well! Read the reviews on it before buying. Most complaints came from people trying to spread salt with this thing. I'm never planning on doing that nor does the manufacture recommend it! Just stick to the basics fertilizer and seed and it will work great!!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by John Edge guard Pro broadcast spreader
I thought that the pneumatic tires would make it easier to push when fully loaded with fertilizer. As it turned out it wasn't any easier to push than my older Scotts broadcast spreader with hard, solid plastic wheels. Otherwise the spreader seemed okay for the money.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DonJ Good Product for a Reasonable Price
I like that I did not have to assemble the spreader. Easy to use, no clogging, and the edge guard was very helpful when using it next to our property line with the neighbors. The edge guard kept the fertilizer and grass seed on my property thus preventing any potential issues with the neighbors. Liked the big bucket which held substantially more than the average spreader, resulting in fewer trips back to the shed for more fertilizer or seed. Definitely a good purchase.
