AA Batteries too weak
I have had 2 of these given to me as gifts. Think about it. How in the world are AA batteries going to work in a lawn care product. Both had the same issue of running ok for about 5 minutes then slowly died. It takes 3 sets of batteries to fertilize my small city lot. And that's only the front and side yard. There are now other brands of this concept that use standard rechargeable 18V lithium tool batteries. These are going to be heavier, but it beats taking out a tiny screw and replacing batteries 6 or 7 times a year. Had to go back to using this old antique. Going to get a broadcast spreader with wheels if I can find one without bad reviews. These hand held ones don't like a windy day. You end up with fertilized shoes and socks.

    Control fell off
    I bought this product today and used it for the first time. I tried to adjust the width of the spray and the control fell off. I am not returning it because the spray width works for what I need it for

      Easy to use, simple....
      I bought this last fall. I really like it. I had a drop spreader but just couldn't really get the hang of it. This is a lot better.

          Perfect for Blended yard with two types of grasses
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I live in NC and the road bakes in the summer which always killed the fescue. I planted Zoysia grass along the road back around 10 feet. The rest of the lawn is fescue grass. The Zoysia gets different fertilizer and being able to use this Wizz spreader keeps me from getting my large spread out. I love the motor! I had a hand crank one and it was tiring on the hand.

            Easy to fill, spreads 5 feet and the liner worked fine. The negative is it clumps and you have to shake it so it keeps spreading which causes you to spread unevenly. The reason is the shape doesn't keep funneling the sead properly as it takes and motors from the front so by half, you constantly have to tilt it forward to spread.

            Defective
            We went to start it up and it does not work. Sadly, getting an operational whizz has proven difficult. I can not recommend spending ANY amount of money on this, it will be wasteful.

              Bought this for the 2019 season. Worked great. I liked the EdgeGuard. Small yard and used it 3 times. For fertilizer. Unfortunately, the system rotated only a few time this season. Replaced the batteries (4 AA) and still there is an issue with the wheel rotating. Hand rotation can start the system but rotates only a few times. There is NO manual handle. No backup. The motor does not have sufficient torque. Put in two different sets of batteries and still will not rotate longer than a few turns. I wish I had purchased something different.

                Bought this product to treat the walkway and driveway in winter, some of which is rocky or often icy so a larger spreader driven by rolling it didn't seem like a better idea. It only ran for about 10 seconds before jamming (though was spreading nice until it did). Ice melt continually got stuck on the spinning paddle at the bottom unless they were just the right size granules, and sifted sand also made it get stuck, making the product useless. Maybe it works better with the ice melt they sell this with as a bundle, but it didn't work well with what I have. I had to get the driveway done before the big rain and refreeze anyway though. Fortunately the plastic is of good quality, so I just used it as a hand spreader for a couple bucket loads, tossing it out the backside of the WIZZ by twisting it in a flicking motion back and forth by the handle. I'd actually buy a product like that without any of the electrics for just under 10 bucks. However, this WIZZ just got returned.
