OK spreader

" This spreader worked pretty good for my application, which is broadcasting gopher poison. The electric switch was real handy, but after a while it quit working and I had to repace it. Also the spread pattern is heavier right in the middle, so keep that in mind if spreading seed or fertilizer . Some type of deflector that would allow you to adjust the spread pattern is needed to even it out.
If you don't make sure the tabs holding the lid on are in place you might lose your lid, I know I did. I would recommend securing it with a bungee cord. Also keep the spreader mechanism lubed so it travels up and down with ease.
Overall I think it was worth the money but there is room for improvement.

bad design

" there is no way to regulate the amount of seed dispersed through the hopper. you have to run 30 mph and throw a 4 ft wide path or dump most of the seed in the area you started without any true way of controlling the volume. it is poorly designed and cannot be fixed. what a waste of my money, time and seed.
