After 3-4 years I am sorry to report the wizz is a washout as I just purchased mine and it's performance is no better. I replaced it with the hand cranked version which has no edge guard and less settings but is cheaper and works.

best spreader for moss killer

Asked by Dick April 10, 2021

Answers

I had thought that the Wizz was very useful, butDIYDAVE I have been having trouble using it with anything having other than very fine texture. I tried Duracell "super" batteries and that didn't seem to help. The motor needs more power for anything coarser than lawn food or it stalls. If the moss killer is very fine it could work to your satisfaction, otherwise probably not.

Get yourself some small ice melt granules then it may work with this. Anything bigger than (half pea size) will jam up the spreading wheel

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.

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.
