"This works great for my 3 acres. I can cover my mowed areas with weed and feed as I mow huge timesaver and back saver as I used to have a manual push broadcaster. I needed to replace that one and saw this in an ad for about the same price. Score!"

Great spreader

"I like this spreader. It pulls nicely behind my lawn mower. It has a nice spreader control that is accessible from the tractor seat. It is lightweight, but made of sturdy plastic. I think it will hold up well over the years."

2010TP Spreader

"This spreader is top heavy if you fill the hopper with fertilizer. My yard has a slight slope to it and the spreader turned over and dumped its contents on the yard. The wheels are too small and to close together. I've already given it away!"

"Most reviews for similar products in this price range were very poor. Given this had decent reviews, I decided to get it. I am not disappointed. Definitely recommend for the DIY'er"

"Overall, I am pleased with the quality and performance of this spreader. Very minor assembly was required, with no problems. I have about 1 acre of ground to fertilize and spreader worked fine behind my cub cadet lawn tractor."

"We have used this for our 1/3 acre yard multiple times. Never had any issues, except when my wife went around the yard and forgot to open the spreader …LOL. We have used it for grass seed and fertilizer, works great."

Great Spreader

By WyomingSteve
from Riverton, WY
"This is a very well-built piece of equipment which is well worth the price. I use it on two and one-half acres of grass and it cut my application time in less than a half. It worked flawlessly the entire time and didn't miss a square foot. It holds a 40-pound bag of fertilizer making loading a minor job. The application adjustment is extremely accurate. My grass has never looked better after its use. If you have a large area to fertilize and a lawn tractor, buy this spreader. It is a great piece of equipment."
