    My wife recently purchased the Edge Guard spreader for me. I had had an off brand spreader for many years. At first, I told her to return it, I did not need a new one. She told me "just try it". So glad I did. The Edge Guard works great. No more sweeping the over spray up and re-distributing it in the lawn. I wish I had purchased it long ago. Been using all of Scotts fertilizers for years. I am the envy of my block.

    I absolutely loved this spreader - all three (3) times I used it. However, I went to use it last week, and part of the way through the project, it broke. The orange piece under the unit which apparently holds the spinning piece in place (confined), snapped. From anything I can see, there is absolutely nothing that I can do to repair this unit myself. Although everything else is essentially pristine, this broken piece will simply not hold everything together and it now useless. I hate to throw it away - silly I know - but these are not cheap, dollar-wise, and I wish there was some good use for it. I truly loved the design on the feature which is the only reason I bought it - the deflector shield that you can turn on or off. What a great concept to keep my lawn product where it should be - the lawn. I guess I will head out to shop the other brands as I never got all of my winterizer down and it is getting very late in the year now. Although I really wanted the biggest unit, I guess I should be consoled by the fact that I lost less money this way than to have the bigger one break. One of the principal reasons for purchasing this aside from the great design, was that I regularly use Scotts fertilizers on my lawn three to four times a year. With a coordinating spreader to fertilizer combination, the measurements are there for a perfect application. As the spreader is now broken so soon into use, I just do not think I will spend that again for the same unit. Therefore, I probably will move away from the Scotts line as well, and see what others out there have to offer. When I felt I was getting more for the extra money, it struck logic; however, now?! Not so much. What a true shame...

                What a joy to operate this unit. Perfect for the small yard. The way it puts out the correct amount of Turf Builder is great. Yard never looked so good.

                    I have a very small lawn and a small budget. This spreader is small and lightweight and a very good value. I bought it at the beginning of the summer and have used it about 10 times for different products. Delivers the product and is easy to use and wash off. A great mini.

                            I purchased the Scotts Mini as a first spreader. I have a very small lawn and this is the perfect spreader for the job! It's lightweight, easy to store and adjustable to put down just the right amount of Scotts products. My lawn looks great in just one season. In part thanks to the Scotts Mini spreader, and all the fine lawn care products from Scott's.

                                for my small lawn (under 1500ft2) this spreader works fine in keeping seed and fertilizer on the lawn and off the sidewalks.

                                        Been using this rotary spreader for over a year now. Used it for several applications of fertilizer, weed n feed, etc. Love the durability of the product although it looks to be made of simple plastic materials. Prefer this spreader over the drop spreaders as they give the flexibility to use products from all brands.

                                                      This is easy to use and store. I like the edge guard to prevent product from getting on my sidewalk. I even put the bag in the spreader to store it for the future. The number controls make it easy. It is hard to see where the powder spreads so I sometiimes put too much product in one area.

                                                          I have used this spreader for three years to spread various Scott fertilizers. I have nothing but good to say about the broadcast spreader. With proper care this spreader should last me several more years. Thank you Scott.

I set it on 6 and it put out 8 pounds per 1000 square feet. The next time with a different fertilizer I set it on 3 and it put out 1.3 pounds per 1000 square feet. That was about 1/2 of what I want to put on so I left the setting the same and this time it put out 1.8 pounds per 1000 square feet.

The connector between the spreader plate below the bowl and the stirrer in the bowl. It is a cheap plastic connector. My required use is not heavy duty. The lawn area is quarter acre. All I do is spread is fertilizer 4 times a year and lime twice a year. After two breakdowns in one year, I bought a different brand (Statesman from Southern States CoOp). The one I had before I bought the Scotts Spreaders (Republic brand) lasted more than 10 years. Except I cannot find that anymore to buy.

I am extremely careful with my equipment of any kind and to have this happen with so little use is shocking. Sent an email to Scotts and got no reply, figures. My first time using a spreader of any kind so after calling around to Lowes and HD I guess I am not alone. The gentlemen I talked to advised me of an alternate product saying " the spreader you bought gets returned aLOT". Wish I spoke to him before I bought it. Sadly, I am unable to return it to the store since I am past the 30 day policy. Rather have the Scotts since I like the size and ease of use (I use scotts fertilizer etc) but I guess it was not meant to be.

I pulled it out to use today and the bottom had completely dry rotted. I have been a believer of Scott's products for many years, but not sure I will ever purchase another spreader that they offer.

THis would be an easy fix if parts were available, but I can't find a source. A slightly more robust part would also prevent the problem.

I set the dial to 3, just as the bag said, and when I finished my lawn I had over half a bag left over. I knew I needed to use the whole bag, so I did it again going the other direction. Can we calibrate these like we could with the Speedy Greens? I can't rate this product very high if it can't dispense fertilizer accurately. That's really the only job it needs to do.
