Works as advertised and does a good job. Its tub holds one 50-lb bag of grass seed exactly, right to the brim, so somebody was thinking when they designed it. You can adjust the rate of flow out the bottom. I had to re-engineer its hitch to fit my tractor because the original level was much too low. An adjustable-height pulling tongue would be much better. The only part the manufacturer left off is some kind of forward shield. This spreader throws grass seed 6 to 8 feet, mostly toward the rear, left and front as you're pulling it. Doesn't seem to sling very much to the right-hand side, but it certainly does hose down your tractor. You end up with grass seed piled in every nook and cranny of your machine. I had to home-engineer a front deflector shield out of aluminum roof flashing to direct the forward-flung seed onto the ground. This was a huge improvement for a second reason as well. You can't really tell from the tractor seat when the tub runs dry, without twisting around every few seconds to look. But with my homemade aluminum shield, when the 'dinging' stops the thing has run out.

The only negative was that Chapin did not include the tow behind hitch in the box so I had to call the company to get the parts shipped to complete the assembly of the spreader a week later. Chapin gladly shipped the parts with no drama.

The plastic housing that insures engagement of the spreader and transmission broke on the first use. There was only fifty lbs of fertilizer in it so I didn't over load it. Chapin customer service was helpful and suggested I take it back to Home Depot.
