Customer Questions & Answers

Which is better ;the drop spreader type or the broadcast one?

Having trouble with the way my broadcast spreader distributes the fertilizer. It varies from heavy to sparse. So I have some areas that are very light green to brown patches that are burned, dead grass. Is this because of the type of spreader I am using or the quality of my tool?
Asked by: Anonymous
Both types are useless. I bought and used both. These spreaders drop the material on top of the grass. I use a combination aerator-spreader made by Brinly-Hardy I bought at Home Depot. It loosens the soil and the material gets dropped in the ground. Not laying on top of the grass. It works great.

The holes in the dispensing bar did clog with clumped fertilizer if the grass was wet and moisture would get into the dispensing holes; though letting it dry and blowing the holes out with air would reopen them and it would work fine again. The biggest issue is that the lever broke after two years of use. Hoped to get more use outta this thing! Love the fertilizer, just not the applicator.

When I put my fertilizer in it the wheels hardly turned. I had a drop spreader that was made out of metal and it lasted me for many years and I loved it. Then rotted out, can't believe I paid sixty dollars for this one. Scotts should bring back the metal one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nope Nope, this thing is going back. It is humid where i live and i mow my grass slightly higher than average. This was really tough to push with the small wheels and the distributer immediatly clogged. Grip was tough on the hands too since it required such effort to push. It provides a good work out but that's not what I'm after in a tool like this

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked fine at first, but did not last Always had to set for larger opening than recommended because it would clog. Then the wire on the control apparently stretched and I could only make it work by grabbing it and pulling it all the way - hardly the way to control. Then I took it out to use it this year and the wheel fell off, the axle had rusted (and I always kept it in a dry shed). Sad because in other ways it was easy to use and did not drop product where it wasn't wanted. Don't really want to buy another one but it seems no one else makes a similar product any more.

That is a no brainer. Quit using this 30 years ago because your engineering dept refused to do just that. You know the holes will clog up, but still won't fix the real problem of too small diameter wheels. The excuse of static electric is just that also an excuse. Having to cut grass extremely low just to use this is absurd. Fertilizer or grass seed can be spread with grass at any height. I always have to re-engineer modify products sold these days because of cheap design & companies refuse to make the product useable. It's only about the money profit, not a quality useable product. I would think the brand Scotts would put larger diameter wheels. Sized to be minimum 18" from bottom of drop outlet to ground level, you would sell with no problem. Send me 1% of yearly gross sales for the quality improvement idea.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Both spreaders have Failed I have only used my drop spreader for 2 seasons in the past 8 years. I leave the yard work in NJ to my professional landscapers due to my wife and I residing at our cottage in Canada for the summer and into the fall season. There I have 2 acres of yard work to keep me busy including spreading fertilizer. This year I have decided to leave for Canada in the fall so the yard work in NJ is now up to me. As a Note: The plastic, orange, locking mechanism on the ACCuGreen 3000 drop spreader always interfered with the operation of the handle drop mechanism. Yesterday, I half-filled my drop spreader with Scott's Turf Builder and off I went. Unfortunately I found only after 10 minutes, and into my third season use, the drop spreader had developed a crack that had opened up where the squeeze handle meets the pivoting mechanism. The handle bends instead of tightening the wire release drop mechanism. What's worse is that the squeeze handle is mounted with rivets which means that my drop spreader has not been designed to easily facilitate repairs and is now unusable. I could drill out the rivets and jury rig a repair if a replacement handle were available. I encountered a similar problem in Canada with my Scotts DLX broadcast spreader. The gearbox had locked and the broadcast spreaders wheels could not rotate when pushed forward. If I pulled the spreader, it would work in reverse. Buy a new one? No! I drilled out the rivets, flipped the gearbox, and solved the rivet problem with bolts, lock-washers, and nuts. I can not pull my Broadcast spreader but it does work normally when pushing the unit. Do I have to discard my Scotts ACCuGreen 3000 Drop Spreader or is there a chance of getting a repair kit to resurrect the cracked, inoperable handle mechanism? I can live with my unidirectional DLX Broadcast spreader in Canada but I need to know if there is a handle repair kit available for the Scotts ACCuGreen 3000 Drop Spreader? The fertilization and growth of my lawn has been temporarily suspended. I do not have a lot of time for the Spring season is slowly slipping away. Respectfully yours JOHN^k
