Hello, the rotary agitator is designed to break up bulky, clumpy material. Free-flowing and lump-free material will not need it. I think you will be happy with the operation of the rotary agitator. This spreader will also have a screen that will help filter out the larger chunks of material. This will help protect the agitator. If you have any trouble with it please reach out to us directly and we would be happy to help. You can call us at 877-728-8224, email us at customerservice@brinly.com, or live chat with us on www.brinly.com. Thank you.

Asked by outlaw May 10, 2020

Answer

This spreader uses aluminum, metal gears with a fully enclosed gearbox. The hopper slide plate, is made from plastode, the shaft and the hardware inside the hopper are stainless steel. All components are designed using the materials best suited to their purpose and to prevent corrosion. We don't believe you will find a better spreader.

Yes, the Spyker Drop Spreader has two side-by-side hopper sections, allowing the operator to spread 18” or 36” widths.

Robust, functional broadcast spreader with a medium-large hopper and a number of thoughtful features. Maryland winters aren't especially harsh, and I might only spread melter once or twice a year, so when my old spreader started to fail, I ordered this model, which says it can also be used for grass seed, fertilizer, etc. Assembly is required, and the instructions leave a bit to be desired, but with careful attention to the drawings, I got it together in 20 min. or so. Overall, I'm very favorably impressed. It's not exactly high-tech, but it does what it needs to and seems built to last, with an enclosed gear box on the axle, stainless hardware to resist corrosion, powder coated frame, controls that are large enough to operate with gloves, a rugged poly hopper, and oversize pneumatic tires. It's also reassuringly solid but not overly heavy (about 25 lbs.) I put down some patching seeds in preparation for spring, and the spreader rolled smoothly, distributed the seeds evenly, and the little rotating pin in the bottom of the hopper helped keep everything moving as intended. Well worth the money. Recommended.

I was excited to receive this ice melt spreader after reading that it can also be used for spreading things like lawn fertilizer, grass seed, and other lawn care products. The spreader looks to be constructed of quality materials. The base wheels are thick and look like they can handle uneven or rough terrain. My one caution is that this spreader requires a bit more assembly than I expected. A #10 wrench is required, so make sure you have this if purchasing this item. Winter temperatures in my area have been above normal, and we have had little to no snow, so I have not needed to spread snow/ice melt. If weather continues like this, I will look forward to using this spreader to fertilize and reseed my lawn.

In short, the Brinly-Hardy 70 lbs. Capacity Broadcast Ice Melt Spreader is a top of the line consumer grade ice melt/fertilizer spreader. The fairly large pneumatic tires help the operator move along easily and don't damage the surface in any way since the evenly distribute the weight of the hopper to both sides very well. The gear box is encased in plastic to protect it from the weather, and the adjustments to the hopper are easily accessible to whoever is using the spreader. Finally, assembly was a breeze. The directions were easy to follow. It took me less than 30 minutes from start to finish. I would definitely give the Brinly-Hardy 70 lbs. Capacity Broadcast Ice Melt Spreader 2 thumbs up.

This 70 lb Capacity Broadcast Ice Melt Spreader by Brinly-Hardy is an excellent product with many great features. It is very substantial from the tuff poly large capacity hopper, strong painted steel handle and supports, stainless steel fasteners, steel rod linkage for on or off, completely enclosed by poly gear box, and the large tires for easy rolling and constant ground contact. It also comes with a hopper screen to capture any large chunks of material and weather cover to keep material dry when spreading. It comes with only the handle/linkage to assemble...which takes about 30 minutes. With the large hopper and large tires, this unit is very easy to push and maneuver. This works great for residential driveways (up to 12 ft throw) and also great for small business parking lots. There are 90 settings to control the amount of aggregate spread per sq. ft. (chart in manual). Also comparing features and price of similar products, this is a great value. Having used a seed/fertilizer spreader to do this task, this is a significant step up!

I selected this item not only to use during the harsh winter months to distribute Icemelt on my driveway but also to use for spreading grass seed and fertilizer come Spring. The unit is very light weight which is a plus considering you can have up to 50 pounds of product in the hopper. The size of the unit can be somewhat of a drawback when it comes to storage. It does take up a bit of space. The height of the unit to the top of the hopper is about 28 inches, and the overall height of the unit at the handle is just above 3 feet. Assembly was a tad bit cumbersome. The unit came partially assembled with the exception of the handle and the mechanism that opens the holes on the bottom of the hopper. While there were instructions that included drawings, it was still a little confusing. When it came to attaching the bar that opens the holes in the bottom of the hopper, you need to make sure that the bottom portion is attached to the handle on the opposite side of the lever that you use to open and close. The hopper tub has a removable grate that prevents any large clumps of whatever product you’re using from falling down into the hopper and clogging the holes. One drawback that I found is the wheel that distributes the product does not have a guard in the back to prevent the product from being shot back toward you. However, most of the product seemed to shoot out the front and the sides. Another drawback is the majority of the materials used to construct the item are made of plastic, with the exception of the handle which is made of metal, and wheels which are rubber. Not sure how well it’s going to hold up in extremely cold weather conditions. While it is pricier than other spreaders on the market, it is still a decent item and seems to work pretty well. We’ve yet to have snow or ice for me to test the product with but I did do a dry run with cat litter and it seem to work pretty well.

The Brinly-Hardy 70 Pound Capacity Broadcast Ice Melt Spreader is a very well made, multifunctional tool. From the pneumatic wheels that move over terrain with ease, to the study large hopper that holds a sufficient amount of ice melt that spreads far and evenly, the Brinly-Hardy is of a great quality. I plan on using it in the Springtime for seeding and fertilizing as well. I also am pleased with the clear plastic and fabric topper that hold material in while allowing you to view remaining amounts. It came requiring some assembly and the instructions were a bit hard to understand, but I was able to get it put together. The adjustable knob allows the opening to change the flow and it works pretty well. My only criticism is with the instructions, they could use improvement. I’m pleased overall, and would recommend this product.

OUTSTANDING quality and design. This is the BEST ice melt spreader we have ever used at our home in Michigan. We have deep snow for many months and use ice melt WEEKLY. The design of this product is perfect with a great broadcast distance. We put more than one bag of ice melt in the bin and it easily disperses the product. It took my husband less than 20 minutes to assemble, with only a socket wrench. The written instructions are included with the product. The wheels are rubber, with a patch kit also included. This will make our Michigan winters much easier to manage. I HIGHLY recommend this product.
