Don't Buy!

Not good. I tried to upgrade from a typical homeowner spreader, but I obviously have to spend more money for a real contractor's model. Handle is too low; kick stand too long. Setting changes if you hit a bump - I have to consistently monitor setting and watch output (I used 28,000 sq.ft. of material for 18,000 sq.ft. yard). Unit is difficult to push when loaded (cylindrical auger on other units may be better than agitating bar on this unit). I bought at Home Depot somewhat assembled; there was no locking nut on agitating bar, which came off in the first few minutes of use. I bought this unit last year and figured I would make the best of it due to already spending the money. I should have returned it after first use. I am so aggravated after using it today, I can only hope to get $20 for it in a yard sale.
