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.

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.

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

    I live on 1/2 acre of land and I bought this "deluxe" model a year ago since my previous spreader kept breaking down. I have a corner lot in a nice neighborhood. I noticed last year that I was getting streaks (lines) in my lawn after fertilizing. I thought I had my settings in correct or I wasn't overlapping properly. After all I use it only about 4-5 times per year. My neighbors keep giving me advice on how to spread product, but this year I realize that its the spreader. It does NOT spread product evenly. I have the edge guard off and it still spreads more heavily to one side and leaves a trail on the other. I think the fertilizer leaks out and drops to the wheels to leave this line. I've tried to compensate for that but no luck. I'm sure its too late to return this spreader but I wish I could. I think Scotts fertilizer is very good and I love using it, but I wish I had a fix for their spreader or could get my money back. I would upload a picture but your website requires my image must be 533 pixels tall and a minimum of 533 pixels wide. This is very strange. It sounds like you're afraid to view my image of a streaky front yard!

                    I purchased this last fall, used it then and again in April for crabgrass preventer. Each time I rinsed it off and hung it in my shed. Got it out yesterday and after 15 minutes the spinner/broadcaster part literally snapped lose. It is apparently not repairable. I had my last spreader for 20 years. I have a smooth lawn. No excuse for this from a name brand company . Very disappointed.

                              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.

                                  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.

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.

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.

The gearbox broke so Scott's sent me a new one. 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.
