If the scotts spreader setting is 3.25. What is it for the 185 lb apreader

Asked by Pat k October 12, 2020

Answer

Application rate for Agri-Fab broadcast spreaders is a general setting of 3 to 5 for light to heavy application calculated at a speed of 3 mph, or 100 ft in 23 seconds. There are variables depending on the size, shape and weight of the product you will be spreading. A rule of thumb is go on the conservative side and crisscross

Can you spread top soil with this?

Answers

It would be easier to get a wheel barrow and shovel to spread top soil. This implement isn't meant to spread topsoil, it's more suited for fertilizing.

I have the 185 lb spreader. Assembly was straight forward. My question is: I use Scott's fertilizer on my yard. How does their spreader settings correlate to Agri-Fab? Example Scott's FallGuard broadcast spreader setting is 3 1/2.

Asked by THLC September 11, 2020

Answer

Dear THLC - Agri-Fab settings are very close to your Scott's setting. I would start on a 3 and do a test pattern on your drive or walkway. This way you can see the distribution pattern and adjust up or down as needed. If you would like to speak to a representative the Agri-Fab customer care team is available Monday -Friday between 7 am to 5 pm CST at 800-448-9282.

I have an agri-fab spreader but am having some difficulty getting the last 20# or so to slide out evenly, and the last 4# or so to slide out of the hopper without physically piling it.  Is there such a thing as a lubricant for the hopper surface?

Asked by Paul MS June 6, 2020

Answer

You do not indicate what media you are spreading. Usually high moisture or powdered media will cause the hopper to clog. If you would like to discuss further the Agri-Fab customer care team is available Monday- Friday between 7 am to 5 pm CST at 800-448-9282.

Will this work with grassseed

Yes..seed and pellet type fertilizers. Stay away from powdered materials. Seed size will require some experimentation on settings. Need to maintain a consistent speed of movement for even distribution between rows.

Can you use this behind a zero turn mower and if so, is there an attachment or option to be able and reach the control to turn it on and stop it?

Asked by Bill k January 20, 2020

Answer

All of Agri-Fab tow behind equipment hooks up with a hitch pin. So if your ZT mower has a hitch plate then you should be able to tow this unit. I would caution you to not make sharp turns. Unfortunately, there is not an option from Agri-Fab to lengthen the control arm.

The spreader does meet my first use approval except for the plastic grate above the sliding plate for feed control. The issue is if you use the unit as suggested, with 3- bags of 50 lb granulated fertilizer, then the grate bows downward to the gate. I highly doubt that the grate will last long term due to the overall depth, which is thin, to support 150 lbs of granuals. I would prefer they refine the design with a thicker plate and some mid support posts from the bottom. The changes \should not effect flow since when driving around it does feed well into the slide/spinner, while being shaken, bumped and jostled. I would also suggest instead of direction for oiling the drive gearing, but add holes with grease zerts to allow for lubrication which is typical of the yard/farm equipment hardware already out there.

Complete mechanical failure within hours of use
Customer review from agri-fab.com logo
Broke the first day I used it. There’s a thin plastic bushing that’s supposed to protect the shaft that powers the spinner from rubbing against metal. The bushing wore out without me realizing it, and the shaft wore cleanly in two, and melted the plastic gear box. It failed completely after operating for maybe 5-6 hours. If they had a bearing for that shaft, it would have been a five star implement.

Response from Sales and Customer CareJune 2, 2020
Please contact the Agri-Fab customer care team to discuss your spreader. Every Agri-Fab product carries a 3-year limited warranty. One of our US-based team members will work with you to get the spreader functioning properly. Premature wear is caused by excessive speed, please remember to remove the drive pin for speeds in excess of 6 MPH. Our team is available Monday -Friday between 7 am to 5 pm CST at 800-448-9282.

Very good product. Once I got it put together, works very well. The handle to open/close the chute is a "cam over center" style, which is great. It's either open, or closed, ...doesn't hang in the middle. For the people that complain the door stays lightly open when closed, ...it's important to follow the instructions and slide the adjustment plate (very easy - 2 bolts hold the plate, and have slots to slide and adjust). It has Big Tires, wide base, making it very stable. The spread seems very even. Size for 1 acre or more is very good. Only reason for 4 starts instead of 5, was the assembly. The instructions weren't bad, but I had a Bent Rotor shaft (so the wheel would spin the rotor just a few degrees of rotation and then lock up. Took me a while to figure that out, then I removed the shaft and straightened out on my bench using a vice and a pole. Put it back together and then it worked great. I would recommend being careful about the metal grate, which works great with fertilizer, but for grass seed I need to remove the grate.

Very Sturdy
Customer review from agri-fab.com logo
I got this about a week ago and was so excited to try it! I have about 3 acres so pushing a spreader to much. This is absolutely a fantastic product. It is a simple pin hitch to my mower. Took less than 20 minutes to assemble. Its sturdy and durable. It has 10 different settings for fertilizer and grass seed, super easy to adjust. Also a nice size spread width with an easy read chart right on the spreader. The tires are nice and thick so it doesn't jump around every where. The entire spreader is absolutely fine and solid! It also came with a very nice tarp/cover for top of the spreader. It ran well without clogging up or throwing to much fertilizer around. I highly recommend this for anyone needing a quality spreader made right here in the U.S.A.!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

This item was fairly easy to assemble and use. However the rod that extends into the hopper required several spacers to prevent it from locking up the spreader. A quick trip to the hardware store to buy 4 flat washers solved the problem.

I am very happy with this spreader. It is sturdy and simplifies the task of spreading fertilizer, grass seed, etc. The assembly instructions and the online videos are slightly different, but not a big deal. The agitator is a simple clevis pin clip, which managed to disconnect itself at one point... I replaced the clip-on pin with a 3" (1.5 inches on either side of drive shaft) threaded bolt and nylon locking nuts. Works great and can't become dislodged from the shaft. No other issues.
