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?

          Works well, easy to use, and spreads over a large swath as you walk. Actually fun to use and much quicker than my old hand crank spreader that I gave to my daughter!

              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! Rick Chicago,IL

                    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.

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.

                                                      Bought this spreader this afternoon. Used it for about 10 minutes. Crank jammed up often. Most of the time it took a lot of effort to turn. I'm taking it back tomorrow for a full refund. AND - did you notice that you have to go back to May 2015 before you find any reviews of this product that are more than ONE STAR! DO NOT BUY THIS PIECE OF JUNK.

                                                        I have now had two of these spreaders each one became very hard to turn the crank after a few uses, and strips the gears. The unit looks good but because it fails so quickly I cannot recommend it.

                                                            This product is way easier to use than my manual hand spreader. 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!

One thing I really liked was that it has a sliding stop that can be used to spread products at a angle to the Left or Right of you and keeps the product from getting all over you. I encourage you to use this product and You too will see what an asset it would be at your home.

When I spread my insect/ant killer the crank jams and will not turn. Had this issue on all 3 and ended up throwing them all away. Will be taking this one back for a refund and purchase a different product. For the above reason, this is a poor design and I am very surprised the issue has not been corrected by now.

                                                                                                        I bought this in April 2016 to apply fertilizer to my small yard (~about 3500 sq. ft.). This size yard requires about 3 loads of fertilizer in this spreader. I was able to get my first application down without any troubles, which after reading the reviews I was fully prepared for troubles. My next fertilizer application was scheduled for early July. This time, on the first load of fertilizer the crank began to not turn unless extreme amounts of force were applied (which is difficult on a 2 inch handle). By the second load of fertilizer the whole mechanism was froze up and I developed a large blister from trying to finish the job. There I sat with a half-fertilized lawn...my neighbors are going to love me. To avoid embarrassment, I finished by spreading with my bare hands (this was painful considering the open wound left by the crank handle). I can only imagine that the consistency of my hand spreading was sometimes the equivalent of a "1" setting and sometimes a "5". Regarding Scotts' "no-quibble" guarantee, they want proof of purchase in the form of a broken crank handle sent to them (at my cost) in order to receive a refund. Why a receipt or UPC barcode won't do is beyond me. I suppose I have to chalk this one up as a loss.
