Questions & Answers

Will this spreader work with the Toro Zero Turn lawnmowers?

Asked by: Bigdog
I am using mine behind a Craftsman (Cub Cadet) 42" Zero Turn Radius Mower and it works just fine. Obviously, you have to have someone else open the gate as you begin moving or be very quick to open the gate and climb back on the mower to get moving before you dump a pile of product in one spot. You should not be doing square corner turns while pulling the spreader. As with the directions on virtually any product that is to be spread, your turns should be reasonably gentle and smooth rather than tight.

What does the "agitator" look like? Metal or plastic? Verticle in design/position?

Asked by: Jimmy
The agitator looks like a large hair pin key that is through the drive shaft in a horizontal position in the bottom of the tub.

Is this spreader compatible with a sxs,or atv?

Asked by: JH
Would probably work, but be careful that the aggressive tire tread on atv's may tear up your lawn on tight turns.

how large of product can be spread, compost? horse manure?

Asked by: cabinhook
Nope, even though the slide opens wide, this item is design for small granular products like seed, fertilizer and some sands or salt.

Customer Reviews

SmartSpreader 130 lb. Tow Spreader is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 174.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good tool for your lawn I have now used this spreader for the second time and I am quite satisfied with it. I found this spreader not hard to assemble, the toughest part was trying to interpret some of the instructions. The one drawback that I found in the spreader was with the agitator hairpin that is installed in the spreader shaft inside the hopper, the first time using the Tow Spreader this hairpin came out of the shaft. I sifted through the material in the hopper and did manage to find the spacer and washer but the hairpin apparently went out with some of the fertilizer and was lost. I replaced this hairpin with a tight fitting cotter pin and have had no problems with the spreader since.

Finally got to use this spreader and very satisfied with it's performance. One has to figure out the proper settings for pellet lime and Scotts fertilizer, after that just drove around the yard until it was empty. Have about 25,000 sqft of grass so did not want to push my existing spreader any more. Assembly takes some time and effort but the finished product is quite sturdy. I recommend that you do not fill it to capacity as it will become a bit top heavy. I loaded 2 to 3 bags at a time and it worked perfectly. I have a Troy Bilt 42" lawn tractor and this fit perfectly and will empty the unit completely.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Somewhat Disappointed I read several reviews that talked about the sturdiness of piece of equipment. Once I put it together I was disappointed. Several said it is can be compared to a commercial spreader, this is just not true! I feel it is an average homeowners model at best. As for recommending this produce..... Only if the person buying it was going to use it on a small (<2 acre) yard that was level. The lever used to open the hopper is a joke, it reminds me of something off of a child's toy. As for evenness..... I guess we'll have to wait until spring to see if the seed and fertilizer I spread is even.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great spreader It's a sturdy, great Spreader. So far just used lime and some fertilizer but worked well. Lime clumps and so best to keep a stick handy to agitate if needed. One major minus unrelated to features was the state it was delivered in - appealing & I had to return to the store, the box had a huge section missing (cut out), had been had taped very poorly and looked like it was dropped or otherwise mistreated. HD needs to step up the online ordering and delivery process if they're to effectively compete with others in this space.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is my second Agri-Fab large hopper spreader. My first died from rust after years of service.... This is my second Agri-Fab large hopper spreader. My first died from rust after years of service. (You can wash/flush 'em all you want, but...) This one came quickly and the instructions to assemble it were spot-on easy. I immediately took it out on the yard to drop 500 pounds of 10-10-10 and everything worked great except that it appeared to be spreading a lot more fertilizer on one side of the spreader than the other. From the drivers seat of my garden tractor is appeared that a nice shower of pellets was being thrown on the right side while the left side was getting far less than half of the same amount. So, I had to make double passes... I would rate this 3 and half stars because of that (So I rounded up). If the factory would like to address this, I am all ears!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Functional - needs improvement I have used this spreader for 3 years. I have spread pelleted lime, fine garden lime, and fertilizer. The agitator is bad design. Hairpin does not stir the mix in the hopper so I keep poking the mix down with a stick. When you stop, you need to ensure you shut the gate or you get a pile of mix on the ground. Fortunately the handle is easily accessible and moves easily. For the money, it is functional. I am trying to figure out how to make the agitator work and then I believe it will work much better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great Agri-Fab Product This Tow Spreader is another great Agri-Fab product. Easy to assemble. Works as advertised. Spread pattern is consistent and spreader is stable when traversing our yard that has slopes and ditches. This is my third Agri-Fab product. I have had a Plug Aerator for over 15 years that we use on at least 10 lawns a year. This Aerator is still in near perfect condition. I also have a Tine De-Thatcher that works great. I expect this Tow Spreader will deliver the same long term benefits.
