Questions & Answers


What is the height of the handle measured from the ground?

Asked by Bryan May 13, 2021

The handle measures 31” from the ground

Asked by sal May 4, 2021

The Echo I bought was "in stock", but not in the store in my area. I ordered online and I elected to pick up at the HD near me. Only took about 2-3 days for product to arrive at store.

Will it spread more than 8 feet if you walk faster?

Asked by Bret April 30, 2021

Mine through it out at least eight feet and maybe ten. It can really throw the material.

Can this be ised to spread salt in the winter?

Asked by Mulls March 2, 2021

I would think it would do well with salt. I live in the southeast, and we do not see very much snow and ice. But, I did use it last spring to spread fertilizer and seed in my yard, and it worked very well. I am pleased with its use so far.

Experienced users: How wide is the spread? Does it differ with different products like peletized ...

Asked by Randy February 18, 2021

Hi Randy! Thank you for your inquiry. The spread is approximately 8 feet wide.

Can this be used for ssnd and salt

Asked by Fs December 21, 2020

Not sure about sand but definitely can be used for ice melt/salt

What material are the gears? Do they need lubricated?

Asked by Justin December 5, 2020

Don’t know for sure, the gears are enclosed inside a plastic cover. So I’m guessing the gears are plastic. No lubricant required

Will this leave green lines in my yard? I bought a spreader by Scotts at the beginning of the yea...

Asked by HomeDepotCustomer October 29, 2020

Hello! Thank you for your inquiry. Some manufacturer's that produce spreaders with plastic wheels, may cause stripping because the material builds up inside the rim of the tire and then would fall out as the unit was being operated. This extra build-up would cause over treatment of the grass which lead to dark green stripes in the lawn. Based on the design of the hopper, spreader plate and tires on the RB-60, stripping will not be an issue.

Where is this made?

Asked by Tek October 1, 2020

Hello! Thank you for your inquiry. The RB-60 is manufactured in Illinois.

best hopper I ever owned...now make a cover available for the RB-60 if available. one already available for the RB-100..

Asked by sam September 29, 2020

Hello. My post will be live soon. I saw you were interested in cover. I am happy to tell you that I found that the ECHO / Shindaiwa Part # P14606-1 is an exact fit. They were marketing it for their higher end brand. The Shindaiwa RS-60

If you find this helpful please click thumbs up, like or whatever it always nice to know people find your info useful. Thanks. After doing some extensive research I decided on this spreader. The flaws that the other users mentioned could be easily rectified. In the end you will have a 3 or 4 hundred dollar spreader. The complaint with this device was the weak shutoff return spring. This can be fixed with (2) 1/8" quick links, and a 7/16" x 2-1/2" x .047" spring. The next thing are the tires hard rubber on plastic rims. Flats are bound to be constant. To counteract that from day one buy a small bottle of "Slime" see pics. The black cap of the bottle also lets you unscrew the valve stem to squeeze in 2 - 4 ounces of the stuff. fill the tire back to 30 PSI and walk around for a bit to get the stuff flowing through out rims. FYI, use this stuff on your wheel barrows, lawn tractor, snow blower. No more loss of air from sitting. The othe thing that users did not like was the space between the agitator and the holes in the spreader. I counteracted this by slipping on the lightest sturdiest material i could think of. 3/4" pex slipped right on and filled the gap perfectly. I shot some foam in them to bond them to the agitator. A super light quick fix. Now material is actually pushed in to spreader holes. I suggest springing for the Waterproof cover for the hopper. The ECHO / Shindaiwa genuine part # is P14606-1. Search the internet for the best price. Follow me @nyjett32 on Instagram for 2 more mods to come.

No go from the Get-go
Before we even had a chance to use the spreader, the cord connecting the handle to the bucket broke. See attached picture. With apologies to Tom Petty (Runnin' Down a Dream), "It was a beautiful day, the sun beat down, I had the fertilizer in ... the Echo spreader ... I felt so good, like anything was possible. I pulled the handle back, imagine my surprise!" We were trying to get the crabgrass pre-emergent down before the crabgrass emerged. We've contacted Echo customer support and are waiting to hear back. They said it would be one to two days on a response; stay tuned....

The Echo RB-60 broadcast spreader is amazing! Night and day from the cheap rinky dinky Scotts spreader that I returned. With the Scotts I would get weird missed spots as the granules would get blocked and caught in the wheels. The Echo has excellent spreading and is really smooth over bumps. If you’re looking for a decent spreader then this is the one. I highly recommend the Echo RB-60!

This spreader came highly recommended to me from a lawn care group and boy were they right! I bought this to replace a Scott's Elite spreader that applied unevenly and had a broken pin that turned the axle, causing it to jam and over apply in areas. The echo RB-60 is well built, easy to assemble and came with everything I needed. I look forward to the days where I have product to apply to my lawn.

Great spreader for the price. Has many features of pricier professional models. A great bridge between the cheap every day spreaders and professional ones.

missing pieces
Box was delivered to the store for pickup. You can see the box looks like it was handled poorly. This thing only needs 2 bolts and 2 wingnut things to be assembled and because of the loose packaging inside the box, one of the bolts is no where to be found.

Some bugs, solid for price
Couple small bugs with this unit, as can be expected from a homeowner/intro commercial unit, especially such a very new product (I got mine before they were even officially released). If you’re overly gentile with the handle lever the gate can be a little sticky. Secondly the tire/wheel set up isn’t the best at holding air... essentially you should consider $16 for a set of inner tubes to be part of the initial cost of the unit. That said at ~$100-120 this is a far better, more comfortable to use unit that most spreaders around the same price point that I have experience with making this an excellent value. I’m happy with my purchase overall and would consider this unit again, especially if they went to a solid or tubed tire. 4/5 from someone who is decidedly NOT an echo fan.
