EarthWay 2050P

,
May 13, 2013
By BoggyBoy
from Florida Panhandle
"Spent 3 days searching and researching for my "last" spreader. I am firmly convinced that this in fact "my last spreader". Well designed, well built, and easy to calibrate and push on uneven turf.....especially with those fat pneumatic tires. Current sale price is exactly one-half, if not one-third, of what it should be for a tool of this quality and obvious long-range durability. Thanks Northern Tool"

Earthway Rotary Spreader 2050P

,
April 23, 2013
By Lemti
from Marinette, WI
"I was looking for a spreader that could handle a fairly big yard. Have had other spreaders with plastic wheels, small hopper, etc.
The Earthway spreader has pneumatic wheels, large hopper, very sturdy design and easy to adjust settings.
Smooth operation and clean up is a snap. I would highly recommend this product for anyone that has a larger yard to take care of!"

Good Value - Short Handle

,
November 16, 2010
By Jaiemo
from West Chester, PA
"Good Sturdy spreader - very good value for the price. Big pneumatic tires allow it to roll easily across turf.
Handle is short - becomes a little uncomfortable after pushing for a long period of time.
Really throws the material - need to be caferful if spreading near flowerbeds, driveways , sidewalks, etc."

"i use push spreaders to spread side walk salt in winter. generally we use larger stainless steel fert. models, but needed a small one to fit on a certain truck. was a little worry by pictures, but when i received was pleasantly suprised. you get what you pay for this not a every day commerical use spreader, but i didnt pay $500 like the rest we use. overall great for the price."

Spreader

"Great sturdy spreader...worth the extra money over the cheaper spreaders found at home stores. Inflatable tires a plus. The only draw back is a lack of adjustability on the handle for tall folks."

"Great Homeowner spreader. The rubber tires navigate the terrain well. Very sturdy construction. The controls are very easy to use. I would like to see a longer handle."
