Answer: 
The right side of the spreader is blocked off from dispensing products while in use. Like for a sidewalk, plants or brush.

Answer: 
The Edge guard is actually the ON/OFF switch for the spreader. In the OFF position, the spreader doesn't cast the fertilizer. This is an enhanced feature over the last one. With the last one, as long as the wheels were moving, you could not control the fertilizer being cast unless you picked it off the ground. Basically, this feature allows you to push the spreader without the fertilizer being cast. Yes! Read More

Answer: 
I find it to be very user friendly. Most fertilizers especially Scott's provide a setting guide on the bag. Add fertilizer to the bucket of the spreader adjust the setting according to guide then push like you would a lawn mower that's it.

Simple machine. Set the dial as to how much product will come out when you pull the lever. If you do not see it on the bag, ask the person in the garden area. Too much you burn and too little you wasted your time. Pour your product into the speader. Pull the release lever and the product will start pouring out.

Simple machine. Set the dial as to how much product will come out when you pull the lever. If you do not see it on the bag, ask the person in the garden area. Too much you burn and too little you wasted your time. Pour your product into the speader. Pull the release lever and the product will start pouring out. I would suggest not pulling the lever until you are on the grass completely and moving. Watch how the pellets fly out. This will mark where you start your next row. This machine doesn't throw full circle so you can aim where you want the product to go and prevent overlapping, hence the name edge guard. Watering is the most important thing you can do. Too much could wash out the product, BUT too little water you will burn the lawn. Read Less

Answer: 
There is a guard that will only dispense the contents in a 45 degree ray. As a demonstration, if the spreader isbin the center of a clockface, it will spread from the 12:00 position to the 3:00 position. If you pull it, then it spreads from the 9:00 to 12:00. (I might have that reversed). So a person only needs to adjust their direction to direct the spread.

Answer: 
Yes. But I recommend using a much lower setting than what the grass seed package recommends and going over your dirt/lawn several times in a perpendicular/crossing path. This will give a much better even distribution. That's my experience anyway!

Answer: 
We do not recommend the use of Scotts spreaders for ice melt, especially rock salt. Rock salt typically has unusual and large particles which could cause jamming problems for the spreader, also salt is very corrosive and can cause problems with the internal metal componets.

I'm sure you could but you would probably have to spray it out after each use so it doesn't jam up. But, the hopper control should be big enough for ice melt

See if the below web site includes info on the product you are spreading. You select the mini from the drop down menu then enter the bar code info of the product you want to spread and it's supposed to come up with the appropriate setting.

Answer: 
That's a very heavy setting. Average use is about 2-2.5 lbs over 1000 sq ft.
If you want to use your setting anyway- it would be a 5, on a scale of 1-15. This is just an approximation, as most fertilizers are spread more lightly.
