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.

Good drop spreader but poor match of meter setting to product delivered

By RJHouston

  • poor match of setting to amount of prod. delivered

    Comments about Scotts® Turf Builder Classic Drop Spreader (76565):

    I have owned the previous version of this drop spreader and loved it. A big selling point of the Scotts lawn products and the drop spreader is you should be able to trust the recommended amount of fertilizer and trust the setting on the drop spreader to deliver it. I read the reviews that stated the poor match of the setting on the spreader to the actual delivered fertilizer. My results today were the same with my new spreader. For Bonus S weed and feed a setting of 5 1/2 was recommended. It is very noticeable that is way too much. I tested for a while and ended up with a setting of 3 to deliver the recommended amount. That is quite a ways off. I rate the "set it and trust it" as poor as a result. However, the spreader is good and does the job. I still recommend it. The calibration nub was was on the mark as described by Scotts, so that wasn't the problem. Now that I know the rate for that product I used, I wrote it on a card and will keep it on the spreader. I will do the same checks on the next product and write it down. If Scotts sorts out the problem I won't worry about it any more. If you want to adjust the calibration to match the numbers on the products you wouldn't have to worry about it. I chose not to do that yet as I do not know if it is a change in granule size that may be causing the problem and that may not be the same with all products.

        Comments about Scotts® Turf Builder Classic Drop Spreader (76565):

        Bought this spreader after my previous Scott's spreader rusted through. Since this was all plastic figured would never have to worry about rust, however, this spreader spreads at a rate that is over twice the amount suggested by the Scott's settings on the bag. This is very helpful for Scott's bottom line by dumping twice as much product on the ground but it isn't good for the lawn or my wallet.

            Comments about Scotts® Turf Builder Classic Drop Spreader (76565):

            Love the spreader but trying to figure out the application rates is a little work. I was applying the Scotts Winter weed and feed....the suggested setting on the spreader is 6. However at that rate my bag of weed and feed ( which should cover 5,000 sq. feet) covered only 1,000 sq feet!!!! I had planned to use the one bag for my front and backyard but because I went by the recommended settings I had to buy another bag. So..... reading the application rate on the bag it suggests an application rate of nearly 3 lbs of product per 1000 sq feet....so with that information I set my spreader to setting #2 and got the appropriate amount dispensed from the spreader. A little confusing.....but still love the spreader and Scotts products!

                    I love the drop seed spreader. My first one lasted 20+ years and is still going strong. Now I am on the "new generation" spreader. Don't have to guess where the herbicide/insecticide fell, because you are right on track each and every time.

                        This spreader constantly needs me to bounce it or move it around so that the stuff inside leave to container and get on to the ground. It is a pain to use and whatever is inside does not spread evenly and the grade of descent is not steep enough to have all the product get to the ground evenly. Takes me much longer than it should to use the product as I have to make sure the stuff comes out and does not get caught. Bad design, hard to use and overall very poor.

                            I purchased the Classic Drop Spreader to replace my Scotts Accu Green 1000 spreader. I wanted to replace the Accu Green 1000 because it doesn't work with grass seed. The Classic Drop Spreader spreads grass seed and fertilizer, is bettero made than the Accu Green 1000, and the larger wheels handle the bumps very well. In addition the Classic Drop Spreader has a padded handle, adding luxury to lawn care!

                              I read most of the reviews by others before my purchase. The first thing I noticed was the setting adjustment (pretty sorry design) but there is a way in the instructions for calibration. I checked the calibration per the instructions, it was right on. Seems to work just fine

                                  Good accuracy: because it is a drop spreader, I can tell exactly where to begin my next row. Also, I never have to question what spread setting to use because this information is stated on the bag of Scotts lawn fertilizer. Therefore, I never waste the product by using too little or too much. Good time efficiency: because this spreader holds 10,000 sq ft of fertilizer, I never have to stop and refill to finish my lawn. Thanks Scotts!

                                    Prior to purchasing this drop spreader I had read about the problems people said they were having with calibration and excessive spread rates. Since I bought the drop spreader, I have used it four times without any problem. The calibration seems to be right on the money and it easy very efficient for spreading Scotts products. It has performed as advertised and is very accurate on our small lot.

                                          I have used Scotts products and spreaders over 40 years. When the fertilizer formulations changed several years ago, the spreader settings never work for the desired fertilizer distribution. Normally the product goes about half of what it should cover if the spreader is set at the recommended opening as specified on the Scott's product. So, I purchased a broadcast spreader and had the same problems. I have never used any other spreader as it is hard to correlate the Scotts fertilizer bag settings to other spreaders. The only solution I have been able to do is to adjust the spreader settings on the run measuring the spread rate by how fast the product disappears out of the spreader box. I have recalibrated it several times using the instructions on the literature that came with the unit.

                                            Best type of spreader available. However, hopper mechanism will some times jam and require emptying and complete washing. Needs a better dispense design to include dumping. Also wheel hubs are too fragile for the application.

                                                If you are a lawnaholic like me you must know the classic drop spreader is a must for your lawn care arsenal. I live in the city and have a double lot. The classic drop spreader is perfect for the small grass subway area between my sidewalk, and the curb. I use the drop spreader for this area because it goes directly onto the grass, and not onto my sidewalk or street. Using the drop spreader in this area I save more fertilizer for other areas of my lawn, and save time by not having to clean up the excess fertilizer that got onto the sidewalk and street if I used my broadcast spreader. Of course I use the broadcast spreader with edge guard for my large areas. I also use the drop spreader for the small areas around my raised garden, and raspberry bushes. This way I do not get any fertilizer in my garden, or on my plants. This ensures my lawn is green, and weed free around the garden. If you love your lawn, and take great pride and care like I do you MUST have the classic drop spreader to use in conjunction with your broadcast spreader with edge guard.

                                                        Two weeks ago I bought a replacement drop spreader and a bag of weed and feed which has a setting of 5 3/4 for the spreader. After about 50 feet I realized it was dropping far too fast and I would run out in less than 1000 sq ft. I took it down to 4 3/4 and it was still dropping far too fast; dropped it 4 - still a problem. Finally took it to 3 3/4 and was through the bag in less than 2000 sq ft. I call the support number and the young lady was gracious enough to refund my cost of the fertilizer, but was no help on why I was having a problem. Then I went on line and found this discussion - who knew that the spreader has a calculation mark! The lady at the support desk never mentioned it. I checked and it lines up perfectly at 6; my mark is in the center, not at one of the edges. I bought another bag of Weed and Feed and set the drop at 3 - it does still seem to be a little fast, but was acceptable. I will make the opening a little smaller next time. There are a number of things that need to be checked to figure out what the real problem is 1. is the calibrated setting at 6 incorrect and the opening should be much smaller than it is at 6 2. is the 5 3/4 opening incorrect for the Weed and Feed product and should be more like 2 3/4? 3. Is the Weed and Feed product manufactured incorrectly and it is too granular I have an unopened bag of Step 3 and the directions on the bag read that the setting should be 5 3/4 - I do not know if the product is more or less granular than Weed and Feed. I think Scotts needs to do some quick research here and find out what the root cause (cute - initially unintended, still cleaver) of the problem is. Then they need to let us know how to fix the problem Until then I will have to use the drop spreader at a very low setting. I am not yet ready to give up on the spreader - and for the amount of money I am not about to throw it away. Scotts response here will determine if I continue with the Scott products.

                                                            A chat session with Scotts revealed that this spreader does not have a setting for EZ seed. You have to use a trial-and-error method that could result in significantly over- or under-applying the seed. Make sure that if you buy the spreader, you buy seed that has a recommended setting for the spreader.

                                                              This is a basic all plastic spreader. For plastic the quality seems to be average. The one thing you MUST do is checked the calibration. To do this scroll through the reviews until you find the one with a customer rep. response. This will walk you through the steps to make sure your spreader is calibrated. Otherwise you may dump a bag meant for 15,000 square feet on less than 5000 square feet. Not good. Scotts please make this easier!! I would have preferred to research and find out if this was the best spreader for the money but we live in a small town far away any big box stores so we just made do with what appeared to be the best one at our local Ace hardware store.

After my trusty Scotts spreader finally succumbed to this AZ sun after many years, I purchased a Classic Drop Spreader on 05 April 2014. I wanted another Scotts AccuGreen 2000 because it can get into tight spots but couldn't find one. Went straight home and dumped a full bag on just my front lawn. Burnt the green right out of my grass, it is still trying to recover, lots of water helps. I found the calibration instructions and it was an easy 2 minute fix. My bar was off over 1/4". Now it seems to work fine. I still plan on buying and using Scotts products as I always have.

                                                                    Like many of the reviews, I had to replace an old drop spreader (Scotts) that I had for many years and finally gave up the ghost. Bought a classic drop spreader. Again ... like many of the reviews, the spreader was "dumping" about 10 times the rate that it should have. However, when checking the calibration as has been suggested ... when set at "6", it lines up with the calibration line just fine, but it's easy to tell that it's way too "open" for that setting. To even come close to getting the spreader to work at a decent rate I had to take it to the lowest setting; 2. This when I was putting down turf builder with weed control and it was supposed to be set at 5.75. There is definitely something wrong with these spreaders BEFORE they are shipped. This needs to be corrected and you need to identify a "correct" calibration setting ... maybe a "10" when aligning with the calibration line, but i'm not sure that will necessarily fix the problem with these spreaders.

                                                                        Having a drop style spreader is great because the fertilizer and seed would go right where I want it to. I found this one easy to use with an accurate drop rate. The quality is not impressive for its impressive price but it works great. The one star reviews made me hesitant to purchase this but I'm glad I did. Also, make sure when you drop fertilizer that you follow your pathe exactly. I had someone help with my last application and now I can clearly see the path where fertilizer is and is not.

It resulted in product waste, unhappy customers and returned product........ Easy fix by Scotts: Instructions should have pretty pictures, or drawings.................... **Pointer to the 2nd green tooth from the center showing the little Circle with a line through it. Label it Calibration Line. (consider value of a contrasting color for the Calibration Line) **Pointer to the front edge of the projecting ridge on the shut-off bar should be aligned with the calibration line (consider the value of a contrasting color for the Calibration Line) **Alternative could be a you tube video. Always have the least knowledgeable folks you can find test your instructions before releasing them

It is easier to get an even spread and avoid the telltale stripes in my lawn. I follow the 4 Step program and cover about 17,000 sq ft of lawn. I use a large bag and about half of a small bag each time, so it appears the spreader is dispursing just about the right amount of fertiler each time. And I have checked the calibration a couple of times and it is spot on. I have had no problems with this product and I have a beautiful lawn which I contribute to Scott's products.

I just spread a 16,000 sq ft bag of turf builder with grab grass killer and the spreader dumped all in 1,600 sq ft area. I had this spreader a long time and now I remember why I did not use it. Their products for weed killer and fertilizer is great but the tools they have to spread this is less than fair.

                                                                                      The plastic 12" wheels fell apart and stripped the plastic gear drive after a half a dozen uses. I need better value for $55 bucks.
