I loved using the older model. It operated very smoothly, spread products evenly, and lasted an average of three years before wearing out...even after heavy use. The new model is useless. I bought four of them and returned the same four within a week. All of them jammed and became unuseable on their first or second use. I exchanged the broken ones for new ones hoping I had just gotten some lemons. The four new ones broke as well. You screwed up Scotts. Im shopping for a dependable replacement.

        I have been looking for this type of spreader and thought I found the hand spreader that doesn't jam with fertilizer, pre-emergent particles. I had ordered it and when I picked it up at the store, it was not the same as the picture. Do not waste your time or money on this hand spreader for fertilizer or any granular product, because it will gum up the gears and the handle will break off if forced. It will work great to broadcast seed.

            I owned this spreader for one spring/summer season. It jammed and clogged almost every time I used it.
            This spring It jammed, and the cheep gears stripped. This is a very undependable and fragile piece of junk.

            Looking for a dependable hand held spreader to replace it.

                Like everybody else said, this product used to be awesome. This newer "version" is the biggest waste of money you'll ever find. Very disappointing. Save your money and get something else. I gave it one star because that's the minimum allowed, otherwise I'd give it 0 for sure!

                      I have not had any issues with the gears or rotating mechanism but I have been disappointed with the agitator for use with fertilizer. I actually modified mine with stainless wire to cause more breakup of clumped fertilizer. Previously I would have to press through the hopper to break up clumps by hand, not a good practice mind you.

                      What you are trying to spread will get jammed under the plastic dispersal plate making the spreader unusable. I tossed mine after one (frustrating) use.

                          I am review number 3 and I just wanted to lat you know that the first 2 reviews are correct. To the person that said that it is great and they have had it for years is correct. If you look in the picture, (as of Jan 2010) the spreader has a screw holding the handle on. There is also 3 screws in the bottom (you cannot see). This spreader did last forever. Scott's has since changed their design to save on manufacturing cost and they have left us with a horrible spreader. Review # 2 is correct. You will use it one time and crud gets into the gears and you cannot turn the handle and you end up ripping the handle off. The more recent spreader that is no good has no screws holding it together.

                              The scott's handspreader used to be the benchmark of quality. However, they got cheap in thier newest version of the model. Thier newest incarnation is the biggest piece of trash I've ever had the misfortune to purchase. You can bet I'll never buy another product from scott's again until I'm assured that they are returning to the previous design.

                                    fertilizer will jam in the spreader and the gears wear out - very cheaply made. Maybe it would work better for grass seed. For fertilizer - don't even try it.
