I want to cover a standard sidewalk can this be adjusted to only a 4 foot spread?

Asked by: Kim
Hi, all products spread differently and depending on the product, you should be able to adjust the front and two side baffles to meet your four foot spread. These baffles work on a movable hinge that allows you to set to the desired angle. We recommend testing a small area and adjust the baffles accordingly before use. If we can be of any further assistance please give our technical Customer Service Team a call at 800-444-3140 and they will be happy to assist you. Thank you for your question and for your interest in Chapin Spreaders.

Can this unit be used with standard rock salt?
Asked by: Rick
Rock salt works very well. Set you control dial to the minimum, then turn it up slowly after you get a feel for the hopper opening.

80 lbs. Assembled Ice Melt Broadcast Spreader is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 88.

The quality is good and it was very easy to assemble (Just the handle and the formed wire needed to be attached). I am not sure why the other negative reviews on the cheap wing nut and plastic parts unless Chapin made a change. My unit has steel wing nuts that are easy to adjust attached to steel clips. The spreader has good rubber tires that do not skid on the snow/ice and maintain the spreading action. The 3 plastic side panels allow you to easily adjust and control the spread pattern. One negative note is the release gate for the salt is not spring loaded so you must push back up on the formed wire to close the gate to stop the salt from being release vs. just releasing the handle. Good part is there isn't a spring that will rust and you will need to replace in the future. A commercial gut may want to spend the extra money for the heavier duty handle. However, this spreader is more than enough for a home owner and a great price at Home Depot.

The bolts started coming apart and I have to go through it and constantly tighten everything. Idly doesn’t seem to broadcast to the right side of the spreader. Overall I am not happy with this. It says it’s an 80pound spreader but I can only get 50 pounds in it

When I first got it didn't work, so I called the company. They told me that the drive gear may be installed backwards. So I sent it back for one that is right. ( am very busy and haven't got the time to redo something I thought was done for me) The next thing I noticed was it was only to be set on full dispersal for salt. This would have been much to much salt. But come to find out it only works while set to half of full, other wise it the broadcaster part would hit on the adjustment. And as I read in one other commit, you have to shake it a lot to get the salt to feed the broadcaster. One other thing I noticed was the screws holding it together are not equipped with lock washers and they fall out. I have had it less than 2 months and had to replace three or four screws. In all fairness I am using an ice melt product that seems to melt also. It creates a liquid that jams up the works. All in all I am sending it back for a better model.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from We purchased this spreader from Home Depot to sand our driveway. We have sand boxes filled with ... We purchased this spreader from Home Depot to sand our driveway. We have sand boxes filled with manufactured sand and rock salt along the drive. Manufactured sand is very gritty, just a little bit finer then rock salt. Loaded up the spreader......and ........nothing came out. Bounced it up and down then side to side and it spread for about 4 feet, then nothing. The bottom of the hopper is very flat which does nothing to encourage the material to drop out on the spinning wheel. Perhaps if the hopper was more of a cone shape it would help. Also the auger did not help at all, it is too smooth to break up the material. It needs some arms that dig into the material to be spread. This spreader may work if you have absolutely, dry, uniform calcium beads to spread. But if any dampness gets in it will bind up and not spread. Thanks to Home Depot return policy we brought it back after 3 days and got all our money returned.

The mechanicals are rusted and it no longer operates. Used it one winter (a handful of times because it goes through ice melt so fast) and now it doesn't work at all. I would save your money and go elsewhere.
