I have had the spreader for almost exactly 1 year. 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.

At this point I have owned two (2) of this model and two (2) of a lesser cost Scotts model over the last five to six years and they have all failed due to the same problem with the plastic drive or connecting rod leading from the gearbox to the spin plate and agitator. Generally have gotten at least one summer out of a given spreader and occasionally two but never three seasons. Other than the weakness of the plastic drive assembly as described the spreader seems reasonably well made. I do not think I am overly hard on lawn equipment and the question that presents itself is how much more can a more durable metal gear, shaft, and agitator assembly really cost especially when compared to the cost and mechanics of a typical inexpensive or moderately priced push mower or perhaps a bicycle? Even when a warranty applies, one issue is the value of time to exchange it, etc.. I do not think I will be purchasing another Scotts spreader considering experience with value or cost and durability........

    Lasted 30 minutes. Purchased Scotts Broadcast EdgeGuard DLX Spreader today and the plastic rotary broke completely off at the axle connection after only spreading 40 lbs of product. Very disappointing in the quality.

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

      I bought this product because of the name, and paid quite a bit more for it than the cheaper brands. I spread two bags of fertilizer, and the second time I tried to use it, the spreader mechanism broke lose from the hopper when it was only half full. It is not worth the price.

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

        I consider myself an expert, having been in the professional green industry as a career for more than 30 years. While I use professional spreaders for my work, for my own lawn, I have used your Speedy Green 3000 for the last 16 years with great service, but today, when loading the hopper with 50 lbs of SCU fertilizer, the main structure support (metal) finally gave way due to years of corrosion and the hopper fell onto the wheel. I knew the spreader was on borrowed time and had been eyeing replacements for a couple of years. I performed last rites and moved on. Since I wanted to apply the fertilizer today before an expected rain, I went to the local home improvement big box store and purchased your Edgeguard DLX spreader and returned to complete the job. I was about half way through the application process and the left wheel fell off. I evaluated the problem, thinking a nut had backed off, allowing the wheel to fall off, but I realized that the wheels are only held in place by plastic tabs. I inserted the wheel in place and continued applying fertilizer. The wheel fell off two more times before finishing, once it pulled the impeller shaft out of the hopper, dislodging the agitator. I had to empty the hopper in order to reinstall the agitator and again pop the wheel back on. My lawn is virtually level and smooth, so there was no excessive roughness that would lead a well-built spreader to fail in that manner. After all, my old Speedy Green never did that. I will be returning this unit where I purchased it for a refund. I cannot see this design flaw being worth my time. I guess I will be looking to buy another brand, and I'll certainly be looking closer at the construction. I have to say I am disappointed in this product and I cannot recommend this to anyone. Other than the wheel problem, I would rate this spreader a 5.

            I purchased this spreader for the edge guard feature and capacity. During the first row of the application I noticed that the left side spread more fertilizer than the right. I thought the edge guard was stuck so I looked underneath and saw the design of the mechanism allowed this to happen. This allowed for an uneven application. Then when I put the spreader away when I was done I noticed a lot of fertilizer accumulated inside the wheels. Very disappointed with this design and with Scotts for allowing this to happen.

                  I bought 2 of these spreaders in 3 years on both of them the edgeguard cable broke. And this on this one that just broke yesterday after manually using the edgeguard the gears stripped on the wheels to operate the broadcast piece. If I may offer a suggestion that would be to use the same manual lever that you put on your mini spreader for the edgeguard and beef up the gears. On a positive side I do like the hopper size and the large adjustment dial.

                      This spreader is inexpensive, sturdy, and the edgeguard is great for applications near driveways, sidewalks, and edged beds. The hopper holds a lot, cutting down in refils. Even full, it is easy to push. The handle is long enough for me (I'm 5'6"). For those that complain about clumping-you should never use it on a wet lawn. If you are spreading in the morning, wait until the dew evaporates first.

                      Bad wheel design

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

                      After using the spreader on wet grass, most of the fertilizer got stuck on the inner wall of the wheels. The wheels on the inner side have pockets without the covering as outer wall, thus causing the fertilizer to fill in those pockets. Also the the throw distance is not equal on all sides. The left side and the front area throw is farther than the right side. Scotts needs to redesign the wheels.

                          I bought this spreader last fall and used 1 time. This spring I used it and the wheels(yes both wheels) came off. The right side a lot more than the left. My lawn is about 3/4 of an acre. And it came off probably 25 times before I could get the fertilizer on. I forget how much I paid but thought it would last for several years. But this spreader is a waste of money.

                              I have had my spreader for about 7 years or more. This year the axel rusted. Since the home improvement stores did not have the replacement parts, I contacted Scotts and they replaced it for free plus sent instructions on how to replace the assembly which was extremely easy. Completed it within 5 minutes and works like a charm! I also like having the edge guard on this product so I won't waste any weed and feed which I only use Scott's brands for my lawn. I have St Augustine grass and whenever I have had problems with weeds, Scotts products always takes care of it! I am completely satisfied with Scotts brand products and highly recommend! Besides why pay a lot of money for a lawn service to treat your yard. I did for a couple of months and was not satisfied at all. Scotts products took care of my needs and this spreader makes it very easy to use.

                                                      Weeds and feeds products work very well in South Texas. And tuff builder is another great products I used that I will stand behind.

                                                            I am pleased with the quality of the Scotts Turf Builder Edgeguard Spreader. The only draw back I have found is it might tip over if you are not on level ground when it is full of fertilizer, etc.

I have owned and used this spreader for the last 3 years. It is very durable and simple to use and clean. The edge guard is a great feature helping to keep the fertilizer exactly where you want it to go. It compliments very well the Scotts products I put down on my lawn 5 times a year.

I like my new spreader because it is light weight and rolls easily over the south Florida St. Augustine grass. But the best features are the components are rust proof and in this wet and salt air it bodes well for low maintanence and durability
