Terrible design, don’t buy!

I bought this as a replacement to a cheap Scott’s spreader because of Chapin’s reputation larger hopper size. I would not recommend anyone purchase this spreader for any reason. This chapin spreader is a very poor design. The handle doesn’t tighten well and is at a very bad angle to effectively push it. When pushed, the force of the push is directed to the top (if not slightly above) of the hopper and above the center of mass of the product for sure. It constantly feels like it is going to tip over forward. If you try to lower the angle of your push you quickly find another flaw. The bar it is supposed to rest on gets immediately in the way and drags on the ground stopping the ability to lower the handle to push it. I called customer service after reading similar reviews for the 8200A model ons this site and Marty said it works as designed and this is the first he has heard of this issue. I was told to return it with no other help offered from Chapin.
