Terrible

I bought this spreader as I was tired of the rigid plastic wheels and agitator coming off the inexpensive one I was previously using. This was not an inexpensive unit, but it seemed worth it - pneumatic tires, decent hopper size, default ‘open’ to save hand fatigue....Nope. - Out of the box, a tire valve was damaged and would not take air; back to the store for an exchange; Not a biggie. - I’m only 5’4” and the handle is excruciatingly low for me! Also, it’s positioning is far too upright... you are pushing this unit down, rather than forward. Quite a chore on turf anything longer than a putting green! The rear ‘kickstand’ does not allow the user to lessen the the angle of push, even if the handle where long enough to do so comfortably. - Default ‘open’ failed on the second use, forcing me to glove up and reach into a hopper full of lime to fix. At least with default closed units, if the unit jams, you can sprint to empty the hopper. This one, you’re dead in the water. - And a pet peeve; At more than twice the price of the ‘cheapie’ I was replacing, this unit does not have a side block (manual or otherwise) for spreading against sidewalks, patios, etc.
