Q:Can you spread compost with this?
by|Sep 4, 2022
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hello Elly. Thanks for the question. The combination aerator/spreader is best used for grass seed and fertilizing spreading and will not work for spreading compost. I recommend looking for a tow-behind spreader with a larger gate opening to allow the compost to spread more evenly. I hope this will help you out! If you have any questions, please, call customer service at 877-728-8224

    Q:Has anyone used this to seed into tilled ground. I have a new yard that is very uneven and weedy that i want to till before seeding.
    by|Aug 23, 2022
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  After tilling the soil will be far too loose and uneven to seed properly. You should consider using a steel drum roller to flatten the tilled soil and then you can follow that up with the seeder/aerator on the flattened even ground. You might also choose to scrape your uneven tilled soil using a box scraper prior to rolling it if you wish to even out the rough patches, but If you try seeding on rough tilled ground it will be very patchy and uneven at best.

      by|Apr 26, 2022
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Hello Kimsue and thank you for the question. The unit has an optional weight tray that will allow for blocks to be attached to the unit. Yes, you may use the tractor weights as an option instead of blocks in the weight tray. You can reach us at 877-728-8224, or email us at customerservice@brinly.com. We look forward to helping you!

        This aerator-spreader is way better than my old agifab. It's heavy duty in how it's made and in the weight. I have had yet to add any additional weight on it. Alton has pneumatic tires which I think helps with the bouncing around and has a smoother ride.

        Bring your clamps to the assembly party
        Seems to be a sound product for the price - should last a good while. Assembly was complicated by poor instructions - I dare you to put it together in the sequence they document! Tip: assemble the side tongue components to the hopper sides first, THEN attach them at the center tongue assembly. Bring clamps! Also, pay attention when they tell you the tines are sharp! Would be great if it could be shipped with some kind of covering for the tines.

        Death trap
        I was super excited to get this and use it to seed and fertilize my lawn. I built it easy and it seems pretty nice. I pull it to storage in my garage and it fell backwards and stabbed my leg causing me to take an ambulance to the ER. I cannot believe the spikes don’t have a cover. I want to return it now but it’s built so I have no way of doing so. Such a disappointment for something I was so excited to receive

          Assembly is Tough
          The distance between the two arms that go to each side of the spreader body is too narrow. It’s not even close. I should have taken a photo. Since you have to pry these arms apart to get the spreader between them, it angles the arms “away” from the body making it darn near impossible to engage the bolts that are intended to connect them together. It’s going to take another set of hands to accomplish this part of the assembly. I hope this thing was worth it.
