Asked by: Glenn
Yes, I would think this spreader will handle most granular products. It does not work on sand.

It is constructed better than most with a steel construction that is easy to assemble. It comes with a two piece sifter over the hopper which makes it esy to break up any clumps. It also comes with a vinyl cover to keep the hopper contents dry. The spreading pattern is adjustable by sliding either of the two panels on the hopper. You can get a full coverage spread or either side can be shut off near walls and fences.

Capacity Contractor Turf Spreader by Chapin is all that and a bag of weed and feed! I presently own a small spreader which requires multiple refills when applying weed and feed to my lawn. When the Home Depot Seeds program offered the Chapin 80 Lb. Capacity Contractor Turf Spreader, I was all over it. I ordered it and shortly after was shipped to me. It was very well packaged. Upon opening the package and inventorying the parts, I discovered on the parts card that the main bolts were not smooth shank bolts but were all threads. I contacted Chapin Customer Service at their 800 number and spoke with their customer service. They promptly sent me a new parts card. After receiving the parts card, the same threaded bolts were present. Apparently there was a change or a batch that were included with all shafts. This has NOT been updated in the instructions, so do not get alarmed. This spreader is very large. Put it next to other spreaders and you will see its sheer size. Keep the box. Do not destroy it. It works well to use the box to assemble the main superstructure and balance it on. The key to assembling this spreader is NOT tightening the sub assembly to the lower handle. It needs room to assemble everything together. Then you can tighten all the bolts and you have solid construction. There are four washers included which are meant for the axle. The only place for them denoted in the instructions are on the end of the axle shaft which receives the cotter pin. I was surprised that Chapin did not call for washers between the wheels and the bushings. The option is there to do that and I suggest you do that, as to prevent premature wear against the bushing and it keeps slack out of the axle, although that slack is minimal without them. Pay careful attention to the instructions when connecting the lever control for the openings in the hopper. If you follow them, you will perfectly set the hand control every time. This spreader is beef. It will hold up to 80 lbs of material. A full bag of weed and feed (43-50 lbs) will hold no problem in entirety. The spreader comes with a pouring grate that allows product to enter the hopper but separates the chunks so that you can break them up. Raining? No problem! This unit comes with a clear windowed cover so you can see the inside of the hopper. It totally protects the hopper from moisture. Storing this unit will take up some room. It is a beast of a machine. But it is well worth it! The item has multiple spreading patterns: wide and narrow center, left, and right. Adjustment is easy. Just learn the proper patterns and pull/push the levers out or in and you set the pattern. Too easy. Parts are well made and fit perfectly. No fit or finish problems. Cleaning is done with a garden hose. Do not pressure wash. I highly recommend this item! Awesome in every way. I would have updated the instructions but that's a small thing. You will have no problem in assembling and using this spreader. Chapin also includes a conversion chart for other brands of spreaders so that you can set the hopper appropriately. You can even lock the setting down on the lever handle which has nice embossed marks and are easy to read. I rate this spreader 5*s out of 5! Get it! You will not be disappointed. Thank you Chapin for offering this item for testing. Thank you Home Depot for offering it.

This is a heavy duty spreader intended for professional use on large properties. The bin is large, the wheels are tall and wide, the handles and associated hardware are metal. The bin capacity and wheels are about twice as large as other popular spreaders bought by home owners. The tires are air-filled and have air nozzles same size as a car tire. Assembly was a challenge, required tools, patience, careful viewing of the subtle variance in parts on the drawings. I admit that I had to disassemble twice and do it right. I would pay $50 to have this assembled!

In the past I used an older Scotts Speedy Green 3000 that may have been okay for smaller lawns but had some drawbacks on my aprox 40,000 square foot lawn. It's narrower plastic wheels rolled harder when fully loaded and tended to catch any dip or rut making it difficult to stay on a straight line. Also the spring loaded shutter in the bottom of the hopper tended to stick open causing me to dump fertilizer when stopped burning my lawn. The Chapin on the other hand has large wide pneumatic tires spaced wider apart that roll over dips and ruts making it easier to push and stay on a straight line. The Chapin's shutter control is directly connected to the hand control lever linkage so fertilizer shuts off cleanly. The 80 lb. capacity is about as big as I would want to go otherwise trying to keep your pushing speed at a constant rate would be difficult on a lawn that has contours and hills. I am very please with the overall quality of construction and ease of use. The Chapin also has a handy chart in the manual that cross references the settings of the Scotts brand spreader and fertilizer product settings.

I'm a big fan of yard tools that are built to last and make my life and project easer to do, that's what I get with this CHAPIN Contractor Turf Spreader !! This is a professional spreader for that serious yard worker and you'll see that when you open the box !! Powder coated steel frame, handlebars with rubber grips, heavy duty hopper with finger grip, big wide tread 12 in. Pneumatic tires, metal gears, gate adjustment for seed and fertilizer and a directional spread pattern control, this one has it all and with it's 80 lb. capacity, you will get the job done fast !! It took about a hour to assemble and I got to spread some seed around before it snowed and it worked Great, this is very strong and well built and I love the 5 year warranty and that it's made in the USA, you can't get better than that !!
