Q:Can you compact the towing arm for storage?
by|Feb 15, 2018
2 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  "Compacting" the towing arm would require partial disassembly of the spreader. The towing gear supports the spreading adjustment and other items, making it a time-consuming process not worth the effort. Recommend that you try setting the spreader on it's back, with the tow bar pointing straight up to keep the on-the-floor storage footprint small, or hang it high on a wall, with towbar pointed up or down.

    A:  No, the tow arm would need to disassembled to compact it. I just hang mine up on the garage wall for winter storage

      A:  Negative. It is designed for seed and granulated fertilizer/lawn care products.

        A:  Dear JZ - Thank you for considering an Agri-Fab spreader for your application. At this time Agri-Fab does not manufacture a spreader capable of distributing compost. I will forward your request to our product development team for review.

          Answer This Question

          A:  Dear Erbies - Thank you for your interest in the Agri-Fab tow spreader. Sand is not recommended in Agri-Fab spreaders as it easily clogs and causes the spreader to bind. Fertilizer, herbicide, ice melt and grass seed make excellent use of a spreader. If you have additional questions please contact the Agri-Fab customer care team at 800-448-9282 Monday - Friday between 7 am to 5 pm CST.

            A:  Fertilizer, yes. Sand would probably be too fine to work in it.

              Q:Does this spreader work with grass seed

              Answer This Question

              A:  Yes

              by|Feb 17, 2018

                A:  Works well with grass seed. Start out with a setting that is about half the desired rate and apply in one direction, then apply in a cross direction for uniform distribution.

                  A:  Yes I just used it to spread 2 bags in my yard yesterday

                        It was missing parts, the tire would not stay inflated, the metering gage was weak and broke with 40 lbs of fertilizer, when repaired the linkage and material strength made consistent openings at the same lever setting inconsistent. I returned it. This did not have the structural integrity to meet normal casual usage requirements, Not ready for prime time.

                        This was a one-star rating when the spreader came out of the box. The gear drive design is flimsy and the drive wheel kept locking up. After dumping a LOT of grass seed in a solid row during lock-up, something had to be done immediately! After a careful upside-down check of the running gear and spreader drive, it was determined that the axle was bent!!! Evidently, during the factory press-fitting of piece parts onto the axle, it deformed where the small spur gear is located. The result was at least an inch of up-and-down travel of the spur as the axle rotated. A five-pound hammer corrected the bent axle and a LOT of grease let it run smoothly. The spreader does fine now, but the frame and general design is still fragile. If you are using it on a normal lawn, it should rate four stars.
