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?

    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.

                        I have used this handy little spreader for seeding, insect control and fertilizing areas around my home. 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!

                                    Just fill the comfortable Wizz Spreader with your favorite Scotts fertilizer, press the button and have a leisurely walk through your garden. Let the spreader do the work. A comfortable spreader that holds plently of fertilizer with a very well designed operation.

                                        I have used this product to spread Seed & Fertilizer and it did an Excellent job. 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.

                                            This is the 3rd one of these I've bought and an very dissatisfied. 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.

                                                This is a BIG improvement on my older hand held spreader device. The automatic feature makes spreading any granular product very easy and much more accurate.

                                                    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.

                                                          Worked great with ammonia but not so great with fertilizer, am i doing something wrong? Is it only made for seeds and granulated stuff?

                                                              Just tried this spreader with some fertilizer and it worked wonderful. My 12 year old also tried it and she had NO difficulities in operating this spreader. We definitely recommend this product.

It was very difficult to crank at first, so I used a very small amount of WD-40, and then it worked very well. I used it to apply Milorganite. I didn't want to buy a big spreader, and this little gem worked just fine with Milorganite.

No more cranking or becoming cranky when fertilizing or seeding my lawn.

All I had to do was adjust the dial, turn it on, pull the trigger and start walking. I could easily hold it in one hand with the container full of product. The only down side was I had to fill it up about 6 times compared to my old spreader which I fill twice. Good for smaller lawns and fun to use.

Our yard is a lot larger than that so our Scotts push spreader works better for our lawn. However, I did use this Wizz spreader to put down preen in my large flower bed. It worked GREAT! It only took a fraction of the time using the Wizz compared to putting it down by hand with the little scoop that is included with Preen. I think it would work great on smaller lawns too. I definitely recommend this product for smaller lawns and/or for use in your landscaped areas.

Your search is over best thing since sliced bread, I found myself in my neighbors yard just so could use it some more. He took away from me and started using it and wanted to keep it, and I told him go buy your own. Yes it can be used for spreading jobs grass seed,fertilizer, and salt in the winter. The unit is powered by four AA batteries. It comes with four already installed how great is that just unpack and your ready to go. Never had such fun doing yard work.

I have used the big walk behind ones in the past. This spreader has all the same things just in a small compact one. Love the edge guard. Also love the fact its small for storage.

It's super easy to use for all types of items that you want to broadcast. I used it to spread grass seed in an area that I was reseeding and it covered the area very well. I've also used it to put down some fertilizer on my yard. Just fill the hopper and make setting adjustments and press the trigger.
