I really need to use a hand spreader for a variety of applications. I otherwise use a Scotts drop spreader. I've been using this little hand spreader for the last several years to lay seed, ice melter, fertilizer, and most recently some pelletized lime. The little orange crank handle broke about a year ago, but I managed to glue it back on sufficiently to work for a while. The pelletized lime was more difficult to spread and the handle came off again. Wish I could get a replacement crank handle, as the spreader is still needed. It works well when it works.

I work in the extermination industry. Have been for 15+ years. Scotts spreaders used to be made with MUCH better quality. I purchased 6 of these after i left mine at a job site by accident. Worst mistake I every made. All 6 of these spreaders jammed immediately at first day! Usually by 2nd or 3rd use. I returned 4 back to the store of purchase and voiced my concerns (went in one ear and was never addressed. That was last year that it happened. Bought another just to see if problem was corrected 3 mths ago. Still jammed@first use. This is the problem that I found...poor design with any weight in the spreader. Grass seed-works great! Fertilizer-if it is a heavy grain...forget it! We use a granular pesticide that is the same grain as sand(very fine but is heavy like sand) I figured out anything over 3/4 of a lb. jammed it up. The older spreader that was held together with screws was the best spreaderwe ever used. Mine lasted for 3yrs under heavy use. Replacing one like that...more worth the $12-$16 price tag. Replacing one that last 5 days? Really?

          Bought this item brand new and within 2 weeks it got jammed and the handle broke. A waste of my money. Buy something with metal gears and save yourself some money and frustration.

              My husband always took care of the yard but with us both working two jobs I decided I would give it whirl. I used your Max Green fertilizer and started the yard. This product is easy to use, spreads evenly and never once did it jam. The yard looks great and I would recommend any of your products. Best of all my husband was impressed with the yard and me!

                  Just was trying to spread some seeds and it broke three different times in 15 minutes!! Body partially came apart first, handle wheel came off second and trigger jammed last. Caused a huge wrist bruise from struggling with it. I am very disappointed. avid and new garners beware!!!!!

                              Had this spreader for at least 12 years. It's simple to operate and durable. I use it 5 or 6 times per year for broadcasting grass seed AND Scotts fertilizers. What could be easier?

                                      I found this spreader to be extremely easy to use. It afforded me maximum control when application was intended for irregularity shapped or small areas. It also gave me the control I needed when applying my granual product next to concrete and deck areas. No more drop spreaders for me!

                                          This spreader evens out broadcast of seeds and prevents the clumping often seen with hand spreading. This product is ideal for over-seeding large areas or filling in patches. Easy operation, and it works well.

                                              first time I used this product I borrowed from my neighbor. I have the pro rotary spreader with edge guard and also a drop spreader both of which are Scotts and excellent products. I wanted to spread fertilizers along the foundation of my home and in various flower beds that you couldn't push a spreader with wheels through. My neighbor suggested I use his hand held spreader. This is a great product and the different settings are very good. This is my go to spreader for special from seeding, fertilizing, putting down ice melt (live in NE gets a lot of use for ice melt). I would recommend to anyone who can hold about 5 lbs.

                                                    Depending on your settings, it lasts a long time. You can go slow or fast. Spread light or heavy. I just wanted something to use in my Landscape area, without driving on. Works great.

                                                            this is an excellent and expensive yard too this is an excellent and inexpensive yard tool it allows you to spread grub control and fertilizer and just minutes I was able to spread the fertilizer in a quarter acre yard and less than 15 minutes after spreading the fertilizer I rinse the spreader and put it back in storage and a few days later the lawn looks great ! I highly recommend the handheld spreader and the Scotts Yard products .

                                                              I find this spreader easy to use. It is much easier to store than the traditional larger ones. It is handy, lightweight and has the settings on there. The only reason I would not give it 5 stars is that sometimes it does get jammed. I think it is best to put less in it to keep it flowing smoothly.

When the fertilizer gets under the spreader wheel, the wheel becomes jammed You then have to stop dislodge the one little pellet of fertilizer which my be difficult to reach only to start the process over again. This happened to me about five times to this morning before I just gave up!!!

I would recommend it to others.

Being small and hand held gives you a lot of flexibility when trying to get under, over or around obstacles in your yard. I also have a drop spreader which I barley use any more since I purchased this unit. I highly recommend this for anyone with any size yard but is ideal for small or oddly shaped lawns.
