Questions & Answers


Is this suitable for lawn leveling? meaning can it handle something like a 50-50 mixture of potti...

Asked by handyguy April 18, 2021

Yes, provided it is well mixed and dry with no clumps larger than about 1/2”. Also don’t overload the spreader, you have to easily push it in order to keep your leveling even. Claude

Can I use the Scotts Elite Spreader for spreading peat moss?

Asked by Andy April 3, 2021

Andy, the Scotts Elite Spreader should not be used to spread materials like soil or peat moss. It will not spread evenly and could clog up the spreader.

Can you use this Spreader to spread salt and ice melt

Asked by Bernie December 18, 2020

Yes! I would definitely thoroughly rinse the spreader after.

filled the spreader with fertilizer, only (10lb) and the spreader wouldnt spread the fertilizer, ...

Asked by cwjae August 9, 2020

Cwjae, the spreader will function all the way to the bottom of the container, if the fertilizer is loose and dry ( not clumped). If the wheels are turning and you are engaging the spreader at the handle to release the fertilizer drop slide, which allows the fertilizer to fall onto the rotating spreader disk, then the spreader will work correctly. Suggest checking the spreader without fertilizer in hopper to make sure that the slide valve opens in the bottom of the hopper when you engage the handle control. Then with the slide valve open, push the spreader forward to assure that the spreader disk is rotating for the spreader to throw the fertilizer. If all is working, then enjoy a fine experience with the spreader. Remember that the opening where the fertilizer drops onto the rotating distribution disk has a setting on the handle control that should be set to the recommendations of the fertilizer manufacturer. Then vary it a little up or down to fine tune the drop rate. Claude

I was advised by Scotts that the Elite could drop alfalfa pellets- is that true?

Asked by Sinueux April 25, 2020

The elite spreader is not a drop spreader, it is a broadcast spreader and it will sling anything that is dry and pelletized up to about a half inch in diameter as long as it is dry and not sticky. Claude

Spreading sand

Asked by HomeDepotCustomer October 31, 2019

Sand is granular so you should be able to very easily use it in your spreader. I do not see the abrasiveness of the sand as an issue. It should actually do a pretty good job.

My grass is called for 8 lbs per 1000 square ft. What number settings for grass seeding new lawn and overseeding?

Asked by Duc September 28, 2019

The answer to that my friend should be on your bag of grass seeds. It will likely specifically mention a variety of makes and models. If the Scott's elite spreader is not on the bag, I would be quite surprised. Also, whatever number is being used for other spreaders (make sure it is a spreader not one of the other types like the type that drops directly down rather than being spread around) you can likely use the average number that others are claiming would work for those spreaders. In other words, if a similar spreader is averaging between three or four, you should be able to use 3 1/2 and be pretty accurate.

Can you purchase a hopper spreader cover?

Asked by Inrealdeep2 August 25, 2019

Yes it can drop pellets

Is it easy to spread top soil as well as seed with this machine?

Asked by Pete August 18, 2019

I do not believe so. The matter going into the hopper these be granular or something very fine. Not something like soil in my opinion.

Is it easy to push? Thanks In Advance John

Asked by John August 5, 2019

Hi John. Absolutely yes! Amazingly when I feel the hopper up most of the way, the tires had a great enough diameter and made of such substance that it pushed very easily. Although the way down to it being very light. Very easy to control. Very easy to use. The controls themselves or dream. It is likely one of my best buys in the last year.

Don't touch the edge guard lever!
First off the lever is on the left side, but it blocks spreading weed and feed on the right side. But the edge gard does not contain the right side spread, it blocks it and it drops straight down to the grass . I have burn trails everywhere I used the Edge gard lever.

I felt spoiled
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This spreader has made it so much easier to plant grass seed. I feel spoiled using this, it even has an edge guard, that helps keep even lines while spreading. The knob has an array of options and settings for the perfect lawn. Assembly was easy, came with the pins to attach the wheels and I was up and running in seconds. Has a nice convenient spot for my phone, which also displays an option for an app. I was able to run my whole lot seamlessly from assembly to finish. The feeder trigger has a light pull so my hands didn’t get tired and also the handle has padding so no blisters. Very comfortable operation.

Nice piece of equipment
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is my first experience with a broadcast spreader. My lawn is @ 18-20,000 sq ft. With a drop spreader it takes about an hour to spread Scotts Turf Builder. With the 'ELITE' spreader it reduced spread time. This item was easy to assemble, is easy to manuever and is light weight. Many features...such as EdgeGuard, which protects non-lawn areas from fertilizer, stainless steel components, and the large hopper are all a plus. The ELITE spreader has other features such as the cell phone bracket, large wheels and a calibration dial to assure accurate application of product.

Great design. Easy use. Well done!!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I just got this new and improved broadcast spreader that Scott’s came out with. Well done on the design. I like the edge guard feature and the solid high wheels. Makes spreading a snap!! Highly recommended!!

Assembly & Fertilizer Test of the Elite Spreader
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Elite Spreader is very easy to setup and very lightweight - can pick up the entire unit with two fingers. The large wheels make it easy to go over divots in the lawn and the coverage uniformity with a dual feed hopper is much better than the smaller spreaders I have used before. The hopper also will hold up to a 50lb bag. I have tested lawn fertilizer granules and grass seed with good success once you decide the right adjustment - there are actually 10 size adjustments to choose from. It also has an 'Edge Guard' that you can deploy from the handle to keep fertilizer or grass seed off of a landscape planting bed, and the coverage is still uniform.

Easy To Assemble, Easy To Use
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Assembly took no more than ten mins and the instructions were quite clear. I used this along with some Scotts Turf Builder to try to thicken my front lawn. Build quality seems to be durable and I have no worries that it will break within the next couple of years.

Powerful spreader
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This spreader can easily hold a big bag of lawn seed, fertilizer etc. It spreads very well. I have a smaller lawn so I was done spreading after 3 passes. My lawn is about 2500 square feet in the front and close to the same amount in the back. Before I was using the Scott handheld spreader which really I thought did a good job just took a little more walking. This spreader is easy to maneuver and the tires moved smoothly across my lawn which has more dips than I would like. I liked that it has a holder for your cell phone in the front. This is definitely good for a large size lawn but for a smaller lawn, I'm not sure such a large spreader is needed. However, if you are looking to save time then this spreader will do it for you. Be careful to follow directions on setting and the pass width. It does throw out a lot of seed so if you are not careful you can use too much and you will be running to the store for more seed.

Fast grass!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Our yard work just got alot easier! I am so excited how easy this is to use. First off you can download the app. That gives you tips on how to care for your lawn. There is an actual phone holder too. The edge guard is perfect for those spots where your grass cuts off. There is a lock so you can keep the grass spreader on or off. You have a dial to set how light or low to disperse seed. This magnificent design has all terrain wheels to get over the lawn with ease and durable tires to run over just about anything. We had our seed spread throughout the lawn in no time!

Great Spreader!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Although my backyard isn’t very large, I have many areas where I want to avoid spreading fertilizer, grass seed, etc.. This has always been a problem with previous spreaders. To keep fertilizer and grass seed out of my flower beds, pool, and gazebo, I would be forced to throw it out by hand. I never felt it was evenly spread. With the edger feature, this spreader is incredibly easy to use and keeps products out of unwanted areas. This spreader applies an even layer of product to a large area in a very short time. Scott’s definitely nailed it with this spreader.
by Yeagersmom
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Upgraded to the newest and best spreader. Glad I did. Made stronger, bigger and better. Get my yard done faster. This spreader along with my Scott’s products get the results I want. One of the best lawns in my neighborhood.
