    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...

              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.

                          The spreader is light weight which makes it esy to handle on different terrains. The directional spray guard is very convenient and prevents wasting fertilizer.

                            The edge guard feature works great. My problem with the spreader is the application rate is not consistant. 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.

                                              This is the second one (Edgeguard mini) that broke after three uses. Both times it is the same part. 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.

                                                  This spreader worked great. I have a vegetable garden and numerous flower beds in my yard - the EdgeGuard feature kept the fertilizer out of them with no problems.

                                                    Used the spreader two times and it is now broken. The connection near spinner is broken. 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.

                                                      have noticed it is innacurate as far as the settings go. kind of on the lean side of the scale. the edguard features does not work that well. still seems like it is throwing product over/around it. probably a good design on paper but not in the real world. has not broke yet on a large lawn. bought the smaller one to try and cut a corner or two. have used for seeding and fertilizer projects. just set the setting and extra click or so and u will be allright.

                                                        This was used three times and worked well. It was stored in my garage. 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.

                                                            I haven't used this spreader very many times (though more than 3) when the drive between the broadcaster and the "sweeper" in the bin broke. 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.

                                                                My lawn is slightly larger than 5,000 sq. ft so I should have used an entire bag Turf Builder and had some lawn left over. 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.

Using this spreader was really simple to set up and easy to understand when reading the label on the scotts product bag. I can't speak on quality as I have only used it once but I do hope it lasts a little while.

                                                                      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...

I am really happy with the mini spreader and can get the job done in a snap. I would recommend that the plastic wheels be closed on the inside instead of being a half mold. It is a bit of a pain to wash out the product that gets deposited when applying to wet lawn. Otherwise.. great spreader!

EdgeGuard feature saves time and material 5. Easy to use. Negatives: 1. For large lawn, larger size spreader more cost effective 2. Too small for my large 6000+ sq ft lawn for one application 3. Rotating feed tends to jam with granular fertilizer not from Scott. Need to stop and unjam with a screwdriver. 4. The wire controlling the on/off function broke after one application. Maybe is is not strong enough or may have been corroded while sitting in the store shelf.
