Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lamar Scott's Fertilizer Spreader
I just recently purchased fertilizer for my lawn and my yard is not that big, so I didn't really want to buy a huge fertilizer spreader. The Scott's Handy Green Hand-Held Broadcast spreader definitely served its purpose. Its really nice and easy to store. Very small so that I am not taking up a huge amount of space in my garage. Its very easy to use. You just poor the suggested amount of fertilizer in the spreader. Select the amount that you would like to flow out of the Scott's spreader. No need to buy batteries or any additional accessories for it to operate. You just buy it and you are ready to go fertilize the lawn. And usually I am back in the store the following day to return the product because I wasn't satisfied, but this time I am keeping my new product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jeff Hope mine was defective
I really hope my product was defective, because if it wasn't, this is the absolute worst product ever created. As soon as I started cranking and pulled the trigger to release the fertilizer it started to bind and stick. I had to constantly turn it back and forth to get it to turn again.
I ended up just shaking the fertilizer out of it as if it were a simple scoop, and then it went straight into the trash once it was empty.
I would sooner pour fertilizer in my mouth and spit it on my lawn than attempt to use this product again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bill This Hand-Held spreader is terrible
This thing broke in the first half-hour of use. Jammed continuously. Horrible design. Anyone involved in the production and distribution of this should be ashamed.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by FredeRICKsburger Poor quality
Spreading grass seed, the spreader lasted about 5 minutes before the tiny protrusion that connected the crank handle to the spreader wheel rung off, and back to the store it went for a refund.

Jams easily when spreading. Feels like the spreader wheel comes off its track.

I think that most Scott's products are excellent. But, this seed spreader is a POOR value. I bought one at a local merchant. The next morning, I filled the hopper with grass seed. As I was spreading the seed, the crank on the spreader became harder and harder to turn. By the time that I was finished with the first hopper of seed, it was almost impossible to turn the crank.
I took the spreader back to the merchant, and they game me another one. I took it home and had an identical experience with it. Again, I couldn't even get the first hopper of seed.
I finished spreading the grass seed by hand.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Neuf350Z Easier to spread by hand
Great concept but the handle just isn't big enough or strong enough to make a consistent turn, backwards or forwards. I used this to over seed my lawn and really struggled in getting it to do anything, and when it did it wasn't an even flow of seed. Sometimes a few cranks spit out a bunch and then it slowed to only a few, even though the spreader was full and I had the trigger pressed to release the seed. I finally gave up and just did it by hand.
