Q:Why are some customers replacing springs on this spreader? I am not looking to buy a brand new product that needs to be modified.

Answer This Question

A:  Hi Luke! Thanks for your question. This spreader features one spring that is attached to the upper metering plate. Without proper determination of the other customers who may be experiencing issues with their spreaders, it's hard to determine what the issue could be. The RB-60 was released in 2019 with no known issues with the spring/metering plate. If you do purchase an RB-60 and experience any issues, feel free to contact ECHO's Consumer Support Team at 800-432-ECHO (3246) so we can assist you.

    Good and bad features. Compared to others, the balloon tires and wheel base are vastly better suited to pushing a load around a yard, especially if the yard isn't perfectly flat and smooth. It is not tippy and rolls easily. The cheaper units look like they were designed by guys who were only using it on indoor-outdoor carpet in the design shed. The RB-60 also throws a nice even pattern. On the down side, like many of these spreaders, a little grit gets between the feed plates and the door to stop the flow gets stuck open. Several YouTube videos mention this and one guy even worked out a coat hanger fix for it (ha-ha!) This design flaw is made worse in all these spreaders in the under $300 price range by the fact that it is not designed to be disassembled for cleaning!!! I used the spreader once so far to spread 200 lbs of pelletized lime and the feed cut off jammed several times. I finished my yard spreading 20 lbs of fertilizer and a small bag of grass seed using a hand spreader. I'll just use the hand spreader whenever possible and recommend a hand spreader for most folks. Although spreading 200 lbs of pelletized lime with a hand spreader could be a little tedious, nearly 1\4 of my quarter acre yard is steep 1:1 slope that can only be done that way. It's not that bad. Try a cheap hand spreader first!!!

    Not Spreading Fertilizer
    First impression is that it is a nice spreader Filled the hopper set to number 8 and started to spread fertilizer. Nothing coming out with the handle pulled Emptied the hopper and pulled the handle. It only opened about 1/8" - 3/16" with the handle pulled all the way to the grab bar. The cable & spring were too long. No means to adjust it. Removed the spring and added some wire rope to shorten the cable and now it releases fertilizer

      Cheaper way to improve agitator action
      I appreciated the review by Nyjett32. His analysis of this product was spot on. My approach to the agitator began by following his suggestion of using 1 1/2 " pieces of 3/4" Pex to decrease the distance from the agitator to the hopper floor. Hopefully this will help push product into the slots in the bottom of the hopper. I did not want to buy a can of insulating foam to attach the Pex. The foam can is pricey and you can only use it once. I had a piece of 5/8" ID vinyl hose that just fit inside the pex. This then tightly slid over the agitator arms. While it was a tight fit I then used two 3/4" #8 self-tapping screws to secure the Pex to the agitator. Very secure and I didn't have to buy a can of foam. I'll install the 1/8" links and spring and I should have a dern good upgraded spreader.

        Loses Tube Plugs Frequently
        It would be nice if it had an “cruise control” latch. My 62 year old hands get cramped holding the latch open for long periods. I frequently lose the tube plugs on the stand on the back tubes. See picture.

          Better than Scotts
          So far it's pretty good. I've only used it one time this season. It's definitely way better than the scotts dxl spreader I had for a couple of years. The pneumatic tires are way better than the scotts hard plastic wheels. I'll see how it holds up after a couple of years use. More affordable than a lesco spreader. Some spreader prices are ridiculously priced for what they do.

          A professional lawn spreader for home owner
          After my old lawn spreader needed repair, I bought a Scott Edge Guard. That was a mistake. It felt like I was using a child's play lawn toy. While it wasn't inexpensive, I immediately knew that Scott's plastic creation was not for me. I researched for weeks, and found the Echo RB-60 for a few extra dollars. It's well build, easy to set up and works better than my older professional spreader. I highly recommend.

          Good Quality, One Major Error
          Love the build quality of this, big beefy tires. The only issue I have with this is the gap between the agitator and the bottom of the hopper. Once you are getting to the very last of whatever product you are spreading (fertilizer, etc.) the agitator no longer pushes the product to the holes causing you to have to try and shake and bounce the product out. Please come out with an updated agitator, I have no problem purchasing it but this needs to big fixed. Included photo(not mine) of the issue and what some are doing to fix this.

            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....
