This Scotts® HandyGreen® II Hand-Held Spreader allows you to control how much, how fast, and in what direction to place any seed or fertilizer on your lawn. 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.

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?

    Comments about Scotts® Handy Green® Hand Held Spreader (71133):

    I've had two of these over the last 5 years. With both I experienced the handle binding and a lot of fertilizer falling on the grass, resulting in the grass being killed in those areas. The crank handle actually broke off on both spreaders. I've gone with another brand that is made of metal.

        Comments about Scotts® Handy Green® Hand Held Spreader (71133):

        I have owned two of these hand spreaders. The first was exchanged by the hardware store after the cranking became so difficult the handle twisted off. The second has the same flaw. It works fine when empty and fresh off the garage shelf. When filled and after about 30 to 50 cranks, the turning resistance is unbelievably hard. Others have commented the gears get clogged with fertilizer, seed or pesticide dust. However, I think it's simply a matter of friction where the gear shafts pass through the housing causing the plastic to heat up and become more cohesive - the shaft to the housing and vice versa. Maybe more gear shaft clearance or tolerance are needed. I am not interested in a refund. Just a product that works.

                Comments about Scotts® Handy Green® Hand Held Spreader (71133):

                Sorry , Folks, but the unit I purchased last Spring has proven to be absolutely useless. The first use seemed to work fine. However, each subsequent use has produced less and less satisfactory results. I have had to replace the batteries each time and I have only been spreading about 40 lbs of seed each time in over-seeding a very small lawn. Today the unit would work for about a minute then I would have to let it rest for 5 minutes before it would dispense seed, and then only weakly for another minute. I ended up hand broadcasting the seed instead and got better results. My unit is coming off my shelf of useful lawn tools and is headed for to the trash bin which is where it rightly belongs. It should never be placed on a shelf for sale to the public.

                  Had the previous generation that was stronger (until it broke), this is HANDY GREEN II is barely functional. Turn handle & gears strain as you try to crank it. Used only fertilizer and insecticide granules - but this is too weak and structurally unsound.

                                This product is great!! I used this product to put down my fall seed. This is a very simple and easy product to use. The spreader is battery operated. All you do is set the dial to the your setting and squeeze the trigger point it to where you want the seed to go and it goes exctly in the spot you want it! SIMPLE, EASY, AND VERY EFFICIENT! Thank you Scotts for another great product!

                                          I didn't have a chance to complete the first day's use. The plastic part that twirls and sends seed out came off along with plastic washer and fiber cloth washer that apparently hold it in place. There are no instructions available on putting it back together. This is on basis of 20 minutes of first use. If it didn't fall apart I'd give it a 4 or 5 star rating across the board. But not under these brand new conditions.

                                            Best product ever. When I ran into the store to buy one I was in a hurry and liked this one because it was ergonomic. I didn't realize it was battery-operated till the trip home. I then realized it even came with batteries. I filled it up and broadcast the bug killer in record time. The wife came out because she wanted to watch it work and I was already done. This is probably the best new tool I have ever used. I don't think the job could be done any easier for any price with any type of broadcaster. I don't typically write reviews on anything but felt the world must know about this new broadcast spreader.

                                                My wife bought this for me specifically for spreading ice melt on our sloped driveway during the winter - it worked great twice before the spreader stopped turning and it became a large ice melt shaker. I changed the batteries, cleaned everything out and it still wouldn't work. Maybe it would work for seed or fertilizer, but I already have my broadcast spreader that works great for that!

                                                        I requested it to spred grass seeds but hav not used it for that yet. I did use it to spread some weed killer in the flower beads and it worked great. The only thing it was a little small for what I was using it for and had to refill it often. Will get grass seeds this spring and use it again.

                                                            This product is great for many uses . Small spaces are ideal, and places that you cannot roll over with your traditional spreader.

                                                              Bought one and ran one 4lb bag of starter fertilizer through it, plastic crank worn my hand out from trying to turn it, don't waste your money on it. I ended up throwing fertilizer by hand,don't waste your money on it. Step up and do not let price of it make your buying decision.

                                                                  This is a nicely designed product... from its clever hanging hole to its quietness, this lightweight battery-operated fertilizer spreader is a quality piece of gardening equipment. I like the fact it has an 'edger' lever that prevents product from going to the left, such as along a flower garden border. It does an excellent job at dispensing product at a regular rate (something I had much trouble doing with my crank-type spreader). I only had a slight problem in using it in the narrow grass median strip by the street, as it broadcasts over quite a large area. Overall, highly recommended.

Most of the time it took a lot of effort to turn. I'm taking it back tomorrow for a full refund.

DO NOT BUY THIS PIECE OF JUNK.

The unit looks good but because it fails so quickly I cannot recommend it.

It is well built and appears to run good on the first couple times of using it. We'll see how it holds up over time, but I'm happy with the quality and performance of this product after a couple times running it.

The portable size and design make it perfect for smaller areas. We had an ant problem on our brick patio and I was able to load insect control granules and walk around the patio. They were gone the next day. I removed a basketball backboard from my lawn and reseeded and fertilized the area in minutes. I did not expect it to be battery driven vs a hand crank. Nice design!
