I would not think so as top soil is heavier and more moist than fertilizer or seeds which would more than likely plug up the bottom of the spreader as does wet fertilizer.
Thank you for your question regarding Scotts Turf Builder Classic Drop Spreader for Seed and Fertilizer. Lime applications are based on the amount needed to balance the soil as determined by a pH soil test. A Test MUST be done first, even if someone has applied Lime in the past. Please contact us at 877-220-3089 if there is anything else that we can help you with.
Tommy, the Scotts Classic Drop Spreader should be used to only apply lawn fertilizer or grass seed.
Yes, when you depress the leaver to spread the volume in the hopper it locks in place. Release the leaver and it will return to the original state of non-spreading.
We do not recommend using the Scotts Turf Builder Classic Drop Spreader to apply powdered gypsum.
23" across the top and 22" across the bottom.
As fast as you can push it.
It was shipped to my home!
Fully assembled is somewhat misleading. You still have to attach the handle, the drop setting cable and calibrate it. Takes about 15 mins but you don't need any tools.
Larry, thanks for you question. I do not work at Home Depot and do not have a box. If you can take photo, Scott’s customer service can help as certain bags of product use different settings for the spreader you have. I am sorry I can’t answer your question but I will not try to give you incorrect information. Retired, but don’t roll like that. Call Scotts for the correct answer. Mark your spreader with permanent ink once it is identified. Stay safe Larry!
