Spiker/Seeder

,
October 26, 2014
By JoCar
from Port Charlotte, FL
"Assembly instructions were clear and fairly easy to follow.
Used unit once to fertilize and it worked real well. Couple of suggestions I would make is that the calibration dial plate be either embossed on the hopper or be a metal plate instead of a decal.
Suggested settings in manual are to broad. Used suggested setting initaling and it was way to much. Had to adjust it to about half of suggestion.
Would be nice if manual listed the more popular fertilizer brands and the settings for them.
Overall the product seems to be the right choice for me.

It's a work horse

"I've been trying to kill this thing for three years now with no success. I cut a piece of plywood to fit on the lip in the hopper and load it with cement block for weight when aerating. It just keeps going now matter how hard the soil or how fast I run the garden tractor. I've seeded two or three acres with it, no problems at all. Better than a broadcast spreader especially if it's windy or you need accuracy as with weed and feed along flower beds. It's light enough to hang on the wall in my shed. Well made, does the job. Can't ask for more than that."

Have Only One Suggestion

,
April 21, 2008
By RyRyandGavers
from Poughkeepsie, NY
"Overall, this spike/seeder is great. Real easy to follow directions, sturdy, solid and does the job. It holds alot of seed, but I do have one critisicm. For area's like where I am in the northeast, where the ground is hard and rocky, the weight of the seed, by itself is not enough to get good penetration into the soil. The tray isn't at all friendly to laying cement blocks or gym weights across it, so it kind of becomes a handy-man rigging to bungy weights onto the spike/seeder. But other than that, it's top notch, especially for the price."

good but untested

"I just finished assembling my spreader. Great directions. They prompted me to be careful when I needed to. For example;"Don't tighten too tight and flaten the metal". This is my third similar Agri-Fab product. The other two were great. This one looks to be every bit as good but I have not used it yet. That is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.Well designed, well constructed. The other two products(aerator and spreader)did what they were supposed to do.Works great on slopy ground."
