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...

          The spreader works very well for our lot that is just under 10,000 ft.² we can put in approximately 5000 ft.² of product and it covers most of our yard. For the price this is a good model compared to other more expensive spreaders with rubber wheels

                Comments about Scotts® 5M Edgeguard Mini Spreader (76121):

                This spreader is very well designed. It has just the right capacity for a 5000 sq ft bag, is noiseless, perfectly balanced, and the opening mechanism seems to be very precise. I also noticed, though not mentioned in the literature, that the handle can be easily selected for either left or right handed people. The only thing that in my view needs improvement, is to "hide" the wire for the opening mechanism, otherwise this spreader is a really nice piece of machinery and does a perfect job

                      I was a bit skeptical at first because I have used a hand-held spreader for decades but I thought lets try it. I was pleasantly surprised in many ways. First the dial used is markedly larger than most others making changing it flawlessly easy. Second, the large capacity bowl and large tires saves tons of time over a hand held unit. I treat over 15K feet and this is way better. Third, the Edge Guard is seemingly new but does work. Someone should devise a unit that eliminates the striping of your lawn due to lack of overlap. As a left handed person having the squeeze control on the right is expected but having the option of moving it to the left would be nice. Great product!

                                This is the best spreader for small to average size lawns. The Edgeguard is excellent for keeping the product you are spreading from going into areas that you do not want them to. Also, great for spreading ice melt/salt in the winter. Highly recommend this product for the price.

                                                I used the Edgeguard Mini Broadcast Spreader to apply Scotts Winterguard Fall Lawn Food. The spreader was easy to use and it did a great job of applying the Winterguard product. I will be sure to use the Edgeguard Mini Broadcast spreader again next spring.

                                                    Have not been able to use this spreader as the landscaping season is done till the spring. I have another Scott's spreader which is very similar that I have used for almost 10 years and has been very dependable. The new spreader looks to be almost the same. The only difference is the spinner in the hopper. The other feature this spreader has is a edge guard which will be beneficial in keeping lawn products off of the driveway and other landscaping that product is not intended.

                                                        I had one of these before and it was awesome but I left it outside in the rain and it got damaged over time. Now that I have a new one, I am protecting it like a million dollar jewel.

                                                            It was time to replace our old spreader so I picked up a Scott's broadcast spreader and I was impressed . Easy to work with design and use. It seems to be sturdy so I filled it with Winterizer and set the settings based on the bags recommendations. It worked like a charm. Finished my Sloped front, sides, and back yard quickly. I know I have a keeper.

I was always concerned about accidently spreading fertilizer into my neighbor's yard since he has 2 dogs and children who often play in the yard. With the Edgegard feature I can evenly cover my lawn with ease.

I love the Edgeguard because I can get right up to the edge of the driveway, sidewalks, and flower beds without worrying about throwing it all over = much less cleanup. The size is also very important. I have about 6,000 square feet and 1 bag of product fits perfect. The smaller size also stores easier and gives me a little more storage room.

I very much like that the handle can be folded back down to save space in my crowded garage and repacked in its box between uses. All directions are clear and on the spreader for ease of use. Being mostly plastic, rust can't happen, and it can be rinsed off after use. Currently, I had used a handheld crank spreader, not liking how a drop spreader lacked control. This product changed my mind. Very easy to use, good control, and being so light, unused fertilizer can easily be poured back into the container. I liked it.

Put your weed and feed or insect granules in the hopper then turn the aperture wheel to the proper serting then spread on the grass while pulling the handle trigger, Very easy to use and clean too !

Many spreader settings to allow a precise amount of product being applied. It also has an edge guard so a person can regulate the amount of product being spread from side to side. Scotts Turf Builder Mini Spreader folds up so it stores easily. The spreader is well made and should give me many years of service.

                                                                                            The only knock on this model it's the "Mini" model and holds one 5,000 sg ft bag. I would suggest spending the extra $10 for the larger model which holds 2 bags of Scotts fertilizer.

                                                                                                    This is a well made spreader. Easy to use for that smaller yard.
                                                                                                    Nice features especially the Edgeguard.

                                                                                                    I did find tht the dial for the spreader appliation rate seemed to change during the spreading. The bumps and lumps in my lawn may have been enough to vibrate the dial position.

It's mostly made of plastic so it won't rust or corrode. Handle folds down for easy storage and it has a trigger to release the product only when you want it to. The edge guard is adjustable and can be moved to either side and it has an easy to read setting dial. I couldn't find anything wrong with this unit except it's size...it is for small areas or small yards. I did not try to spread ice melt with it but looks like it would be good for that as well.
