Tried a rotary broadcast spreader. Didn't like the way it dispensed. I returned the broadcast spreader and purchased a drop spreader. Much better results from the drop. I think it spreads more uniformly. Hopefully the results will be decent.

Spreading super turf builder with weed control on wet grass (as instructed) causes the spreader bar to get wet and then the drop holes clog with the product. I walked 16,000 sq. ft. Of lawn with the spreader set to 5 1/2 as on the product label and my Scott's spreader was still over 1/2 full should have been empty. Wheels need to be larger to raise spreader higher off ground to prevent this problem.

                                This product is made much better than previous spreaders I have owned and used. Others have wheels that won't turn for one reason or another and the fertilizer doesn't drop as it should either because it gets clogged too easily or as a result of the wheels not turning. Just the basic quality of the spreader is better.

                                  For a spreader this can not be beat! When your young and in a hurry this unit will drop the application where you walk regardless how fast you do it. When your old and want to take a stroll this unit still does it right and puts it on the ground and not in your shirt pocket or your shoe. As the saying goes - Do it right the first time not over. Best in control of the product, it folds up so you can hang it up. Dave 38..

                                      I use both a broadcast and a drop spreader. The drop spreader is used around beds, driveway, patios etc so I'm not wasting material or spreading where it's not wanted (herbicide in a flower bed). I always make sure to rinse out my spreaders after each use to avoid any corrosion to moveable parts or calibration linkage.

                                          This was hard to get calibrated correctly. I was never sure it was putting the correct amount of product out. It was hard to read the settings correctly. I wasn't real pleased with the product. I have thought about putting it at the curb. I bought it because it was a Scotts product and based on the products I had purchased before, that were Scotts, I got this one.

                                                    I've had a couple of these spreaders. The first developed problems with the gauge used to regulate the flow and with the wheels sticking after about 10 years of use once or twice a year. I've had the second about the same amount of time and while I haven't had any problems with the gauge yet, the wheels sometimes get stuck. I've learned to be very careful to hose down the spreader after each use--still only once or twice a year--and to use lubricant on the wheels from time to time. When they are functioning properly, they are easy to handle and spread whatever product I have in them very evenly.

                                                        The drop spreader works very well. It is not always translatable for settings for fertilizers and lawn chemicals other than Scott.

                                                          Easy to use but with 2 problems. 1st, everything on lawn, even leaves, must be completely dry. Any dampness at all, on the bottom of spreader, partially plugs up spreader and lessens/non uniform delivery of product. 2nd, Delivery grip does not always work properly and you are required to maintain constant exact pressure. Which is difficult at best with spongy handle to secure against. Need more simple fully on/off lever. Also, takes forever to do a lawn with this spreader. Accugreen 3000. Weed and feed doesn't kill very many types of weeds, am trying other brands.

                                                            I loved my spreader I have had for at least 8 years. It is easy to use and in no time I can spread my fertilizer. I can spread my fertilizer as soon as I get get home from work and still have time to make dinner. It is easier and faster than using a hose with the bottle and the spreader spreads it out evenly.

It's easy to make adjustments to the spreader based on the product application requirements. I expect this spreader to last many more years. I highly recommend this spreader from Scotts.

                                                                                                      Drop spreaders are much better than rotary for getting the material in the right place, so important if you are using an herbicide at the same time so you don't get it on your ornamentals.
