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?

      What a piece of trash. I'm sad that Scotts allowed it's name to be put on this product. I wish I had read some reviews first. they are all bad. It clogs within 5 seconds of use, completely unusable.

              After using other manual products, with severe strain, I am glad Scotts has come up with the Wizz Spreader. No more cranking or becoming cranky when fertilizing or seeding my lawn.

                This is light weight and easy to use. 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.

                    This hand held spreader can cover up to 2,500sqft with one fill. 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.

                        This is it... 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 tried fertilizer and seed, nothing much came out while spinning and what little did was way out of the range of my lawn, so I fertilized the dirt. Had to do it by hand and now I'm worried I over-fertilized. Bummer, I have new sod and was trying to be very methodical about caring for it.

                                This spreader is great for grab and go when it comes to putting down scotts weed and feed. 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.

                                  Used spreader one time to apply 8500 square feet of fertilizer end of April. Now first of June and going to apply some insecticide and unit will not run......if batteries last no longer than that what a waste of time and money.

                                      I really like this spreader. 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.

                                              The overall product is too flimsy. The gear ratio is way to high for such a flimsy housing and drive mechanism. Once any sort of product in put into the hopper the gears start to bind so more power needs to be applied to the handle which starts to bend. I had the original model. It served me well for 15 years. I dropped it and it broke so I had to buy a new one last month. I was so disappointed when I picked up the new model. I knew it wasn't going to work just by spinning the handle in the store. It needs to be manufactured to the old specifications. It was those specs that made it a good product. It wasn't just the shape of the object but rather the gears and mechanisms inside. You guys must know that already.

                                                      This spreader is light weight and very easy to use. It did 'throw' my fertilizer a bit wider than I expected, but that could have been my my lack of experience with this particular product.

                                                          This spreader is much more easier to use than a push spreader. You just fill it up and then walk to where you want to start, then pull the trigger. It's that easy. I finished the yard in half the time it takes to push my wheeled spreader around. I have close to 3500 sq ft of yard to fertilize.

                                                              So much better than turning the crank, this motorized hand spreader is easy to use. Fill the bin, set the spreader for the product you want to distribute and the pull the trigger and walk at a leisurely pace around the yard. Refill the bin as needed. Has worked well with grass seed and with Scott's fertilizer. Easy to store in a small space. Can't wait until I have to use it again.

                                                                  The wiz spreader is light weight and easy to use. The battery powered distribution wheel is a nice touch. Easy to read dial and simple to use in smaller areas. I would not recommend this product for large areas because of limited storage for product but that's why you make a drop spreader. I only used the WIZZ in a small yard to distribute Scotts Step 2, so I am not sure about battery life. At this point I would strongly recommend the WIZZ to any one.

One feature that I liked was that it was battery powered and only had to hold down the trigger unlike other models that require you to crank a handle. I would recommend a walk behind broadcast spreader or drop spreader if you have a large area that needs to be fertilized.

I may not use it too much for fertilizer, but I will use it for re-seeding and ice melt. Great for smaller yards or re-seeding a patch of grass, nice and even distribution.

It did a good job of distributing the fertilizer I used and was easy to clean up. I am looking forward to using it to spread salt this coming winter.

So far the spreader is an excellent use for this. I'll probably only use once or twice a year but I'm glad to come across this. It very easy to use and takes the thinking out of overseeding.

All you need to do is select the setting, fill and take a walk... It works at the right speed to spread the product evenly and it is easy to clean. Just hose it down and let dry....

I used it to spread grass seed in small areas that were bear. All you need to do is press a button and it did it on its own. I have arthritis in both of my hands so this made the job much easier. I would recommend it to anybody.

It has a battery driven motor to move the material out the front, with edge guard ability. I found that the spreader was somewhat difficult to get an even flow while walking across the yard. The fertilizer would flow when full, but as it emptied a hole would develop above the opening and flow would slow down substantially causing uneven spread. If I tilt the spreader down, it would refill, but I would also get a larger amount of fertilizer dump on the ground at the time I tilted it down. Then I tried keeping the spreader level and shaking from side to side a little, this worked somewhat better but not perfect. I think the best use for this spreader would be for reseeding where it would help you obtain the largest coverage for the expensive bag of seed. It would also be beneficial if you had a smaller yard 2500 - 5000 sq. ft (1-2 fills) and you were limited on storage space for a drop spreader.
