Q:How do you check/calibrate this Echo RB-60? My Echo RB-60 is pulling down three times the amount needed. I use the comparison chart setting for my Echo RB-60 for my Scotts product setting. Example: Scotts setting 3.5, Echo setting 3.5. Echo 3 X to much.

Q:Does this come assembled?

Answer This Question

A:  If you have to put anything together, I really don't remember.  But it a great product and a lot better than the green spreaders.  Very well made and it does a great job of putting down fertilizer.

by|Jan 13, 2023

    A:  All you have to do is add the handle piece. It’s very simple to do. 

    by|Jan 14, 2023

      A:  It comes mostly assembled. Just a couple of things need to be tightened/adjusted and a small part attached

      by|Jan 14, 2023

        A:  Yes. You will need to fold the upper part of the handle up and tighten the two twist knobs to secure the handle.

            A:  No, you have to assemble the handles to the spreader. Takes five minutes, two minutes if your wife holds the handles while you tighten the bolts, lol.

            by|Jan 10, 2023

              A:  Pretty Much. Only 2 butterfly bolts (hand tight) to attach the handle. Less than a minute to assemble

              by|Jan 12, 2023

                A:  No, it does not. Not many pieces to put together though, so it's not very hard to assemble.

                by|Jan 12, 2023

                  A:  Product description under item says, “ Assembles in about a minute with 3 easy steps.”

                    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.

                              Sturdy, well built spreader that holds 60lb. Bags with ease. Like the wide pneumatic tires also. But, the agitator at the bottom of tub is poor design and leaves 1/2 to 3/4 inch of material it doesn't reach.
