I have had two edgeguards. Scotts replaced the first one. A great concept as it allows you to put the products down where they are suppose to be. Neither spreader lasted three years. The control that regulates the opening size gets stuck. The spinning device gets stuck and won't rotate properly thereby the product comes pouring out. The spreader will fall over it you are not careful. It simply is too flimsy to be a smooth operating device. Scotts should beef this thing up, get rid of the plastic tires, charge more money for a better lasting product and I would be happier paying for something that actually works. I am now a happier owner of a different brand of spreader.

spreads well but edgeguard is flimsy piece of plastic

    Comments about Scotts® Deluxe Edgeguard Broadcast Spreader (76232):

    Bought the Scott's Edgeguard Deluxe broadcast spreader yesterday, used it once, and returned it today. The edgeguard technology is a cheap piece of plastic. It jumps out of its housing (4 x 1/2" plastic tabs) whenever it feels like it. If all you want is to spread fertilizer, etc. it's ok. But if you're paying the extra dollar to get something that works as advertized, stay away from the "Edgeguard"...it's useless.

        Comments about Scotts® Deluxe Edgeguard Broadcast Spreader (76232):

        I have been fertilizing my lawns for over 40 yrs using several Scotts Drop Spreaders over the years. They always seem to rust out after about three years...and I use them every 8 weeks from March until early November. I switched to a plastic Broadcast Spreader and am so sorry I did that. The Calibration was very poor. I am going to have either a very green lawn or a very brown lawn. The right side did not broadcast even with the Edge Guard OFF. I used substantully more fertilizer with this product. So why is it that people like these anyway?

            This product works really well. The quality is very good. The edge guard keeps you from getting the product all over the sidewalk or driveway. Your product doesn't drop out when you close it which is important. I have used it for several years and will continue to use it as it is very easy. I do recommend this product.

                I have had this product for a less than two years and the edgeguard trigger cable would not deploy after a year. I have to manually deploy it. Also the plastic wheel to control product flow sticks. Very frustrating !!!!

                    I bought this spreader 1 hour ago. Brought it home and began using. I hit a small bump in my yard and the handle bent. Within 20 minutes of use, the trigger quit working, and the fertilizer will no longer come out of the spreader. All of this for $57. Do not buy this spreader~!!!

                                I purchased this spreader this past weekend after using nothing but a drop spreader for many years. But inasmuch as I have over an acre of grass I decided to try the DLX and I was very pleased with the result. It has a pretty wide spreadpath (about 5 feet) and the air filled tires made pushing it much easier. I was able to do the entire yard in about 1/3 of the time it has taken in the past. Great product; I would recommend this spreader to everyone.

                                    Bought the spreader this Spring - I had to replace the old one that gave up after 15 years. I have used it once and it worked great. The edge guard is great for keeping the fertilizer off the walks, off the driveway and out of the flower beds. It handled the 15,000 sq ft bag of fertilizer with no problem. Spreads even and easy to operate. I do like that most of it is plastic to reduce the corrosion. Only time will tell how durable it is. I would not us it for commercial applications, I do not think it could take the abuse.

                                                              This is one of the best spreaders I have ever owned. I use it on a regular basis to spread seed, fertilizer and weed control products. Even does double duty in the winter spreading ice melt on the driveway.

I had an older model from a competitor and wanted a new one. I bought this unit and gave my old one to my son. I used the spreader three times and the thing broke. The cable that operates the chute broke right at the hopper. For the money I thought that the spreader would last longer than it did.

Now the hopper drop door won't close, so when I squeeze the grip the door opens and will not shut. It also seems to go past the calibrated opening and goes full open. This sure wastes a lot of (expensive) fertilizer!

I used it last year for the application of Scotts 4 Step fertilizer products. Today, I used it for first application this year. Half way through the application, the EdgeGuard control on the handle broke. My investigation found that inside the control, there is a plastic retainer with a slot that the end of the control cable fits into. A piece of the plastic retainer broke off and now the end of the cable will not stay in the retainer. So, future use of spreader will not have benefit of EdgeGuard. Overall though, I do like the spreader and do recommend it to neighbors and while in retirement I do work part time in Garden department at Home Depot and will continue recommending spreader to customers but being an honest guy, will mention to them my experience. But- I am going to check this year's models to see if EdgeGuard control has been improved.

ITs cheap plastic. I tried finding the part online but cant Does anyone know how to get replacement parts? The last spreader I had from Scotts lasted 8 yrs. Very upset.

Although it is light weight, it seems well built and sturdy. I used it to fertilize a 5000 sq.ft. lawn. Using the setting recommended by the fertilizer manufacturer, this spreader applied the correct amount of product. The edge guard worked great, keeping the product out of my flower beds. Clean-up was easy. I definitely recommend this spreader

However just because it holds a whole bag of fertilizer doesn't mean you should. The agitator and gears will not hold up to that much weight / product. BUT, the company stands behind the product and has continuiously sent me replacement parts over the years standing by their warranty. So in that regard as long as you don't overload it, it does a great job. And the customer service is GREAT too.
