Good spreader but needs some modifications!

The handle to open the spreader gate is to short to reach from the lawn tractor. Modified it by bolting a piece of 3/4 inch wide flat steel to the handle and extending it. Another major problem is the adjustment for the gate setting. The wingnut will not hold the bolt in place for the setting when you open the gate. The wingnut will continue to open to a wider setting and you will loose all of your fertilizer. Add a second carriage bolt and lock washer in front of the Wingnut slide to the desired setting. So first set the wingnut to the desired setting then add the carriage bolt and lock washer and tighten. This will fix the problem of the gate opening to far as you pull the spreader. The wingnut setting was a very poor design!

Gears bind. Drive wheel locks up.

I am an engineer so seeing the issue with this spreader is pretty easy, unfortunately I bought it online sight unseen. Once I had it and was able to see the flimsy set up for the geraring and worse, experiencing the binding up I was very unhappy. I used grease and ran the spreader around for an hour trying to get the gears worn in so that it worked to no avail. All I did was make drag marks in my lawn. Returning this today.

Poorly designed and/or over promised

|

The apparent sturdy construction of the spreader fails because the metal cog turned by the wheel locks up constantly due to the placement of the connection to the bucket. I've attempted to spread fertilizer and pelletized lime and the spreader fails to function consistently for either product. I'd love my money back but have had this thing for a year now, so have little hope of recovery.

Don't Waste Your Money

Poor construction. Directions say the hopper will lock in a closed position but that is incorrect - as it is being pulled, the hopper opens and disperses the contents when it should be closed. Furthermore, while sitting on the mower it is impossible to reach behind yourself to grasp the on/off lever. Am VERY sorry I spent $125 on this shoddy piece of equipment! Learn from my mistake!

cheaper model that has a cable shutoff that sometimes would shutoff and sometimes not. This item seems to do what is expected in being to control flow when necessary to shut off.
