Product Details

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. This spreader was designed for heavy-duty jobs and was built to last; the durable polyethylene hopper won't rust or dent and the gears are fully enclosed to protect against corrosion. The patented directional spread pattern, Auto flow, ensures accurate and precise application and stops material from spreading when the tractor stops. Use year-round to apply seed, fertilizer and lawn chemicals or in the winter to spread sand, salt and other melting agents.
  • Spread seed, fertilizer, ice melt and more for all-season versatility; spread material from 2 ft up to 12 ft
  • Large 175+ lb. (3.5 cu.ft.) capacity hopper maximizes the time spent spreading vs. refilling
  • Rustproof poly hopper with stainless steel hardware, tubular steel frame, and tubeless turf-tread pneumatic tires for unmatched durability
  • Fully enclosed gearbox and 6:1 glass-filled nylon gears provide the widest spread pattern at slowest speeds
  • Easy calibration control features an easy-to-reach locking dial for secure rate-gate settings; Includes hundreds of pre-calibrated settings.
  • Patented Autoflow technology ensures accurate applications and stops material from spreading when the tractor stops
  • Directional Flow Control adjusts spread pattern away from walks, driveways and flowerbeds
  • Universal Fit; fits any lawn omwer, garden tractor, or ZTR with a rear hitch
  • Made in the USA

Q:The written description lists your minimum spread at 2 ft., but the spec table lists 8 ft. Which is it? I need to be able to go down to 6 ft. to miss planting areas on either side of a roadway.

Answer This Question

A:  Hello Washington Nursery, and thank you for the question. The LPBS36JD has a maximum spread width of 8-10 ft, depending on the material you are spreading. This is based on a three mph pull speed, and the speed that is what your spread rates are calculated. The slower you go, the less of a spread width you will have. This spreader is equipped with a directional control plate to help control the spread pattern, helping you from spreading in unwanted areas. Please see the manual on how to adjust for this setting. https://images.thdstatic.com/catalog/pdfImages/bd/bd9d405d-00c0-5a29-be65-b794d70a3853.pdf. If you have any questions, please call customer service @ 877.728.8224.

      Q:Can you spread topsoil with this unit? Thanks!

      Answer This Question

      A:  Hello maxtn and thank you for the question. The BS36JD is best used for grass seed and fertilizing spreading. The inconsistency with the different brands of topsoil on the market will make it difficult to spread evenly. I would recommend looking for a tow-behind spreader that is more for farm size application to allow the topsoil to spread evenly. I hope this will help you out!

        Q:Is this spreader compatible with the S240?
        by|Jun 8, 2022
        2 Answers
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hello MrBurg and yes your John Deere S240 will accommodate the spreader. You will just need to attach the spreader to your hitch plate on the back via a clevis and pin (included with the BS36JD). You will get many years of use from both items. I hope this will help you and enjoy the projects!

            It’s nice and is sturdy. Little difficult putting together. My only issue after getting it together. Is the fertilizer doesn’t drain completely. The bottom is flat so as the fertilizer begins to empty it doesn’t get it all. I end up having to shake the last bit out. Which is frustrating when it’s on the back of a riding lawnmower. It would be better if the bottom was more like a funnel.

            Tow behind broadcast spreader is terrible
            Terrible the agitator in this is useless. Was a total waste of money

            Great size for my big lawn.
            This is a great size for my lawn. Give yourself a good 60 minutes to put everything together. At the start you need an extra person to help hold a few pieces together. Once that is done, one person can finish the assembly. It is very sturdy and easy to wash after use.

            Product is well made, but the only problem I have is not being able to close fast enough as the handle is not easily accessible, and I spill product until I can close, which ends up with excess fertilizer on my lawn, which then kills the grass. I am going to try to retrofit, so the lever is next to me.
