Product Overview

Reloading your spreader over and over can be time-consuming and tiresome. The John Deere 175 lb. tow-behind broadcast Spreader expedites the job with less passes.

    Best spreader!
    Great for an acreage. Built well and is designed to last for years to come. This is our second spreader and I wish I would have just bought this one to begin with

    Don't Make My Mistake
    This product is poorly made. We were not able to control the spreader's rate of distribution. We set the level on close. It still spread. Even set at close, it still over spread it the turns and killed our grass. We would have been better off if we had spread the fertilizer and weed control by hand.

      The arm that adjusts the amount of fertilizer is a poor design. Does not hold when tightened, after you start moving. Overpriced

      Dear Linda, we are sorry to hear you had trouble with the flow control handle. You can resolve this issue by slightly tightening the four nuts and bolts that hold the directional plates to the hopper. If you have any questions regarding this please see page 29 in the owner's manual. Here is a link to the manual. https://brinly.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/zcsjyvoly7ovnk2tssp4.pdf. If you still need assistance with this please give us a call at 877-728-8224. Thank you! Brinly

      Look at the other brands of 175lb. spreaders. They are all made at the same place in China. This is not exclusively John Deer except for licensing to use the John Deere decals. It's the same, exact spreader as the $98-$150 brands. Identicle!

        Though all the previous reviews were average, I decided to buy anyway. Well, I am pleasantly surprised. Assembly was a tad tricky, but not too bad. It worked like a charm on 1.25 acres.

        Bent parts out of the box!
        Missing hardware, geometry of flow control handle all wrong as the predrilled holes for mounting of on/off handle mounting bracket were in the wrong place on tow bar-couldn't shut off(close) flow gate so material would've constantly flowed out(!), angles of braces that go from front upper hopper frame were pre-bent at wrong angle for attachment, and they aren't even shown in description picture online of finished product! Paid just short of $500 for this "NON DEERE" part, and it's far from worth10% of asking price...not worthy of the John Deere name! This unit had way too many design/engineering issues for me to even TRY to fix myself for the price. I could have, but, I don't mind paying for what I want, I just darn well better get what I pay for! This piece of mechanical garbage does nothing but give John Deere a blackeye! Oddly enough, after submitting this review, a non defined "ERROR" occurred and it wasn't accepted...I wonder why?!

          Needs a lift
          Connected to my E130 and started spreading, when I was close to empty noticed all the fertilizer had moved to the front of the spreader because of the angle between the spreader and mower and no longer being discharged. Is there an adapter sold that can reduce the angle to make the spreader ride more level?

            Great for two months and then plastic gears broke
            Big fan of John Deere. Have a 1975 John Deere tractor that is still running. This piece of plastic junk was dead within two months. Used it three times. Turns out they have plastic gears that break easily. Looking for an alternative. BUT DON'T BUY THIS JUNK. IT IS NOT JOHN DEERE QUALITY.

            We are very sorry you were disappointed with your spreader. There is a 2 year warranty on this product; please reach out and we can get you what you need to get it up and running again. Note that the gears are a corrosion proof heavy nylon and should hold up for many years during all normal use. We might also suggest a visit to your John Deere dealer; there is an equivalent sized John Deere spreader model #LP25354 that comes will all metal gears and a lifetime warranty that might suit your needs better.

              Please don't buy this and read the review first
              Bought this. Used it for the first time and spinner stopped turning. Took the gearbo apart to find that everything is made out of plastic and stripped out. Figured it would be an easy fix to replace the small gear and get it working again. Called John deere and the told me that they dont make these things and that a company called Brinly does. Cant buy the little gear as it comes as a gear assembly for $120 plus shipping. Save your money dont buy this thing its an absolute cheap piece of junk. This is the other one that Brinly makes 1000718908 see the similarities? just a different color and half the price. Please dont buy this thing its not a deere and was made a cheap as physically possible. Brinly and deere should be ashamed of building and selling such a piece of junk. Im returing this thing this week. Brinly can have it back

                Being a JD product i expected to better quality but it was garbage from taking out of box. Plastic pieces that lasted only 4 uses. Now its just a cobweb collector. The spreader guage becomes unengaged on first bump you hit. I would not buy this product if i was you

                  Lacking quality
                  This is the second John Deere spreader I purchased I was told that this spreader had.drastic improvements from their last model. Once at home I noticed that again the gear box was plastic. I gave it one more try spreading pasture seed and before I was done the gear box was broken. To me it is criminal to sell a product that can’t hold up for a single day. What was once a good brand is now no better than there Chinese rivals.

                  We are sorry to hear of the experience with your broadcast spreader. Please reach out to us with your model and serial #, and we would be happy to get you a replacement gearbox shipped. The fully enclosed gearbox has glass-filled nylon gears that are designed to last many seasons. When using your unit, it is important to keep your spreading speed at 3MPH and your towing/transport speed under 5MPH. High speeds cause high loads in the gearbox and can damage the gearbox. We also manufacture an LP25354 which is made with metal gears that are covered by a lifetime warranty. You can call us at 877-728-8224, email us at customerservice@brinly.com or live chat with us on www.brinly.com to get your replacement gearbox. Brinly
