Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Edintexas Works well but ...
I have owned this spreader for several years. It has worked well and held up well with the exception of the foam handle covering, which wasn't tough enough to last past year 2.
The main complaint I have is with the shape of the hopper. The bottom of the hopper is relatively flat from side to side and not steep enough to feed the last couple of pounds of product into the chute. You have to rock the spreader back and forth as you walk to get the last of the fertilizer or whatever to drop into the chute area. Overall I'm satisfied with how it works.

Good quality for the cost. Easy to use. Instructions printed on the side of the spreader, so you don't have to memorize an instruction booklet. Spreader is coordinated in the instructions with the instructions on the Scott turf builder products.

The fertilizer spreader is easy to set and works well when the grass is wet. It has a diverter which helps to minimize the amount of fertilizer you get on the pavement or sidewalk when applying.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by blnnak Design is cheap and doesn't work well
Purchased this based on the HD star rating and WOW was I misled. I used dry product and only enough for approximately 2000 sq ft. First problem is the lever that opens the base was stuck so I had to manually pull on the cable, but then it would get stuck in the open mood and dispense product where I didn't want it. Second problem is the hopper had problems turning after a pass or two. This made me stop dispensing, pour out the unused product, and hose down the spreader. I then dried everything and tried again only to run into the same problems. I took it back to HD the same day. When I explained why I was returning it the lady behind the counter gave me a smirk like she knew all about this product being a piece of junk.

I liked the edge guard and new dial for rate of application. New improvements, but did not justify the cost of item.

I am doing my own lawn care by de-thatching, eliminating weeds, planting new seeds to fill in the bare spots in my yard, fertilizing, as well as cutting and watering. With the large bag of fertilizer, this is the right size spreader. It covers large areas and very light weight. Just remember to rinse it to keep the spreader from sticking.
