175 lb. 3.5 cu. ft. Tow-Behind Broadcast Spreader is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 83.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from INFERIOR CHUTE DESIGN I gave this rig 2 stars because it spreads grass seed well. It worked great... INFERIOR CHUTE DESIGN I gave this rig 2 stars because it spreads grass seed well. It worked great for a grass seed application in fall of 2017. This fall (2018), I once again spread the seed very easily over a 45,000sf lawn without a hitch. However, when I tried to spread Scotts Starter Fertilizer (factory fresh, right off the truck) it was a complete nightmare. Where the setting for seed was #3, the fertilizer setting was tighter opening at #2. It simply would not go through the chute -- clogging instantly when I put the tractor in gear. To make sure it wasn't the material itself, I dumped some of the material out of the Brinly hopper into my little Scotts walk-behind broadcast spreader and it spread like a charm. Case closed. So, if you're planning to apply grass seed, or probably any material with a application chute setting of #3 or larger you should be ok. Any material requiring a smaller chute setting of #2 or less will likely be a big toothache.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I really like this unit. It exceeds my expectations.However,... I really like this unit. It exceeds my expectations.However, I gave it a "good" rating because the bolt securement of the hopper to the frame could be better. The bolts are likely to pull through. This is not insurmountable however.The control handle and the mounting plate were missing when the item arrived.I called customer service and the parts were cheerfully sent right out at no charge. So thumbs UP! One other concern, instructions for the washer under the impeller don't describe which side of the washer is to go UP. As a result I may have it upside down but it works anyway.To the consumer; Don't over-tighten bolts in the rubber grommets for mountings. The bolts will pull through thereby destroying the grommet. Otherwise, I highly recommend this unit.

Quality of product is good and well built. Product was damaged in shipping due to poor protection of parts from the manufacturer. Some better protection of each part from each other in the box is suggested. Spreader works as described. However on "bumpy" terrain on/off lever will move which changes the flow rate of material being dispersed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quality construction. Not totally pleased with spreading action. Had trouble fitting the pin through the axle and hub during assembly. The two would not line up properly. Had to expand the hole in the hub a slight amount to get them to line up. Added about 30 minutes to the assembly process, which otherwise would have been easy, with excellent instructions. The lever that opens the spreader does not work exceptionally well, wanting to vibrate closed, especially at lower settings. Had to attach a bungee cord to hold onto to keep tension on the lever so it would stay open. Did not get even application because of this. These issues aside, the spreader is very sturdy and well consructed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but not great quality Some parts are really sturdy, some not. Tips over easily when a full load is used. Transmission drive slips sometimes when a full load is used causing nylon gearing to wear and need replacing. Adjustment for rate does not hold even when tightened a lot. Adjustment lever has a tendency to close when in use. Hitch assembly is thin metal and distorts very easily. However, it is the best product on the market for the price and replacement parts are relatively inexpensive. I think you could build one by ordering the parts separately and come out about the same price as the whole unit kit, not typical for most things.
