is this spreader able to broadcast ag lime also known as pulverized lime (powdered lime) ?

is this spreader able to broadcast ag lime also known as pulverized lime (powdered lime) ?
Asked by: frankL
it would have to be pelleted lime, regular powdered lime probably would cause nothing more than a big dust cloud trying to spread with the spreader

Have got the above spreader all put together except for the little round black box that I believe turns the spreader off while you make the turn. Try as I might, I cannot seem to figure it out.
Asked by: Anne
I completely assembled it and the hopper never stopped dumping the content of the hopper. Good luck.

Customer Reviews

85 lb. Tow Behind Spreader is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 190.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy Assembly and Works Well I bought this about 2 weeks ago and found all parts in the box and easy assembly with step by step visual instructions. Go slow during assembly and it will be easier. I moved steps 6 and 7 (wheel assembly ) to the end of assembly in order to make the handling process a little lighter until the end. I spread two types of weed and feed today on wet grass and it went as good as expected. One was a fine granual and setting of 3.5 was good, the other small beads and setting of 5 required. As with my last spreader I found it necessary to locate the the spreader adjuster stop and then place some strong tape behind it as a firm stop so that when I pushed the spreader paddle back the adjustment didn't change. Always a little difficult to drive a tractor, reach behind you, and push the knob without too much force at my age. I was worried a little of tipping on slopes since the wheels are not spread apart too far - but I had no problem. It held about 40 pounds of material so not sure where 85Lb spreader comes in.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for the money purchased this two years ago, spread fertilizer 3 times a year on yard. It holds one 50# bag of fertilizer and does excellent on flat smooth ground. If you dont have flat smooth ground be VERY careful, i have dumped it over several times. I have now purchased a new gear box as the plastic one has pretty much stopped working. Plastic gears..... really guys. I would have gladly paid more for better gears. Save your money and buy the bigger one! Metal gears, wider stance and taller tires all make it money well spent.

After 2.5 hours assemble, flow control would not work, took apart and started over, no luck. I was totally frustrated, took back to store, they were very nice about it, but I did not another exactly like it had also been returned. Now consider purchasing else where but might see if they will assemble for me. Getting late, needed it when I bought it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from had some assembly trouble Me and another person who is a mechanical engineer took about 1.5 hours to assemble this. The directions are clear, but the cable that goes to the seed control is like 3 inches too long. We trimmed some of it off, then sprayed a dry lube down the cable housing, and then it worked fine.
