Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by doesntmatterwhoiam Right wheel doesn't turn
How is this worth $57? The right wheel doesn't turn when you fill it just halfway with seeds. I was using Scotts Turf Builder Southern Gold grass seed. I exchanged it for another one and had the same problem. It's a lousy design.

Make sure grass is cut low before spreading because drop holes clog when wet. Clean after use all metal parts rust

Does the job. Was some slight damage to handle, but not enough to make me return it. It works very well. It's great if you have gardens surrounding your lawn. Just drops the material you are spreading for more controllable spreading.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nogreengrass Poorly designed product
I previously had a much cheaper drop spreader that I used for 20 plus years. It simply wore out so I decided it was time to upgrade to a Scotts. This is the worst spreader I have ever used. The first year it constantly clogged and no fertilizer came out. I thought maybe it was because the bag was a year old and slightly damp. Started this year with a brand new bag of Scott's fertilizer and once again, the bottom simply cakes with fertilizer and nothing comes out. Maybe it works well in an arid environment such as Arizona but performs poorly in Illinois. Note: applied late in the afternoon on a sunny day so there was no moisture on the grass.

I have had an Accugreen 3000 for about five years which is the absolute worst garden tool I have ever owned. Despite recalibrating numerous times it does not drop product at the proper rate. It replaced a much better metal Scott's spreader that my son had backed into with the car. Very disappointed.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MTG Inferior and disappointing
This product is a serious disappointment. One wheel did not turn. Neither wheel had any grip to move easily and evenly. It is poorly designed and cheaply made. Years ago I had a Scott's drop spreader that was made of metal. It worked much better, but rusted. I would gladly spend more money to have a better product. I would advise hand spreading or virtually any other method of application. Avoid this piece of equipment.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Montessahall My third one in three years
The poorly designed gauge had broken on three different drop spreaders I have purchased for three years in a row. The thin wire becomes detached from the adjusting gauge rendering the spreader useless. I won't be buying a fourth one!
