Rated 3 out of 5Â by HearHear Be very careful with using "Edge Guard"
While the idea is promising in preventing fertilizer waste, the execution is not well thought out. It burned our grass at some edges last spring. What the 'edge guard' does is only decrease the spread distance, NOT the amount being put down. So you end up putting about 33% more in the edges. You can reduce the spreader setting before 'edge guard' is turned on to solve this problem, but it was an afterthought for me. Hopefully your lawn is all safe.
I also recommend that you buy a more sturdy one if you have a decent sized lawn. The product feels cheap and with ~25lbs of fertilizer, the wheels become a bit difficult to turn.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by patzy Cheaply made
Bought this item at Home Depot. This spreader is cheaply made. Got it home and put the handle on and it wouldn't stand up. After some tweaking I proceeded as per instructions on the bag. I have a huge front and back yard and used 3 bags of the Turf Builder Summerguard Fert. ($75.00). I watered per instructions and in 3-4 days I had a green lawn in stripes of light and dark green. This is the second time I have used the product. First time the lawn was gorgeous and had people stopping and asking what we used on the grass. That time I used Scotts handheld spreader and it was a chore. However the spread was consistent.

As this is a Scotts product, it has a dial that lets you set the drop rate to that recommended on the bag. Using my old spreader, I applied lawn care products by guesswork and compared to this unit I was consistently over-applying. With one use, I saved $25.00 of fertilizer.
There is a lever to control when the spreader drops and a side guard to protect landscaping. Not sure why anyone would buy a larger spreader, This held enough fertilizer for 3/4 acre.

Have been using for 2 yrs and love it. Really like the edge guard to keep from spreading fertilizer or seed in the floer bed. Also easy to store.
