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...

      It is nice to be able to control the spread well enough that it doesn't get all over the sidewalk.

              We bought our first house and need to work on our grass, bought Scotts weed and feed and also the mini spreader. Best tool to have when you need to spread on grass. Easy to use and no clean up after. Prefect size. I would definitely recommend this product!

                  This broadcast spreader is simple, basic and easy to use. just set the dial to the desired rate to spread, put your product in spreader and that's it.

                      Works as advertised. Easy to dial in the correct spread rate. Handle folds in for compact storage. I've had this for a few years and use 1-2 times each spring, summer and fall so it gets a good amount of use. Need to clean it out on occasion otherwise it jams up. Other than that it's pretty fool proof and sturdy.

                            Edge Guard works very well, and the spreader spreads... not much more I can ask for. If you clean it out well after every use it should last you several years.

                              I like this spreader. Until you use a bigger pellet fertilizer and the spout will not close when you want it to, so your product keeps coming out when you turn

                                  I do not like having to fertilize my yard because it can be quite cumbersome. Since using the Scotts® Turf Builder® EdgeGuard® Mini the time it takes is cut in half and I know that all the grass has been fertilized.

                                          I've used the same Scott's drop spreader since 1962. I was going to fix and continue to use it until my gardener told me about this one. Faster and more even. Stores better in garage and won't rust!

                                                          We've had our mini spreader for some time and it's even handy in the winter for spreading calcium chloride pellets!

                                                              I love this spreader. It distributes my seed and fertilizer evenly. I really like the edge guard it keeps the product right where I want it and off of my concrete and landscaping.

                                                                I have approx. 1 acre. I bought this 2 years ago and have used it 4 times. This last time the spreader suddenly dropped out of the bottom. When I inspected it, I found the shaft and everything else was plastic. The friction had caused significant wear to all the pieces and finally melted the main shaft in two. I paid $40 at home depot. I just found a much larger, better built product at Farm and Fleet for $44. It has metal components along with pneumatic tires. I would not recommend this product.

                                                                  I was spreading fertilizer last fall and had streaks of burnt grass because this spreader hadn't spread it evenly and had dumped heavily in areas. Even though I had it on the proper setting. Also this spring, I used scotts grass seed in it at the recommended setting and it also dumped the grass seed unevenly. So that I had to rake it out. I also believe that it spread the seed too heavily, because the bag of grass that was supposed to have covered over 1000 square feet only covered about 3/4 of 750 sqft. So I had to spend more on grass seed than I should have. I only hope that it didn't cause any major over seeding and cause my seedlings to die out from competition.

I have a lawn of approximately 5000 sq.ft. and this spreader makes quick work of applying materials. The 'edge guard' is great- keeps product off of the sidewalks. The stop, start feature is very useful, especially when going from one area of the yard to another without spreading product in unwanted areas. And the fact that it comes already assembled saved me time to get going. Good product!

                                                                          Used for first time today. Product is obviously cheaply build but it still functioned OK. The hardest part was keeping the EdgeGuard in the "off" position as it wanted to creep from off to on as you walk. This causes the spreader throw to change and will create streaking in the lawn if not monitored. I had to use a piece of duck tape to keep the EdgeGuard in the "off" position. Kind of hokey for a product from a major brand. A couple other criticisms: 1) The hopper is fairly small so this is mainly for use on a quarter-acre or smaller home lot size. 2) I purchased fertilizer from my local Ag store and not a Scotts Brand. Called Scotts customer service for help in computing spreader settings on non-Scotts products. Not very helpful as they don't have setting information on other major brands of products. I guess its their way of making it difficult for customers to use other brands.

Really like the edge guard to keep from spreading fertilizer or seed in the floer bed. Also easy to store.

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.
