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...

Good speader but handle too short

  • Quality

Cons

  • Difficult to use

Best Uses

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

    The spreader did a good job of evenly applying the fertilizer. The only problem is the handle is too short for someone over 6 feet tall. I felt like a hunchback walking behind the spreader. Maybe a product improvement would be an adjustable handle for taller people.

      The lower frame tube broke just above the wheel. I've only used it about five times and have kept it in my garage. Low quality of frame material.

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

          Product is OK for the price if you are going to use fine grained products, but the spring that controls the slide door at the bottom is weak and the slightly larger particles of fertilizer jam in there and the little slide door won't close. I checked with support and all they could say is "we don't have any parts available for that". After 2 uses, it's going back for return.

              I was ready to put down the fall application of Turf Builder Winterizer. The hopper in the pull-behind-my-lawn tractor AgriFab broadcast spreader was full when the differential gear housing shattered and I had to borrow my neighbor's Mini Broadcast spreader. Not only did it work better than the pull behind spreader I've been using for years but I finished the job faster than I ever have with the AgriFab. My AgriFab spreader is still broken (my requests for customer service have gone unanswered) so come this spring I'll getting my own Edgeguard Spreader.

                  This spreader is perfect for my lawn. The ability to adjust it from a 5 feet spread to a 3 feet spread with the flip of a lever allows me to adjust for the variety of widths I have in my lawn.

                    Worked great, for one time, then the plastic shaft to the distribution plate broke on my second use. Very disappointing. I don't understand how parts can be made so cheaply, and especially with the plastic that will clearly not last.

                      Shaft on distribution plate broke from friction, bought it spring of 2015 used 4 times just broke on me, distribution plate just drops out from under unit. Looks like I'm out $40. On the other side of this I do like the concept of the edge guard less waste and less mess to clean up.

                              Thought it was great product until I was 3 passes into 3rd application of fertilizer and the spreader piece snapped on the bottom. It did work well while it wasn't broken, but I expected this product to last a least a full year and hopefully more than that. To break after only 2.5 uses is disappointing. I will look for other products before going with Scotts again.

                                          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!

                                                  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.

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.

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.

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.
