a very easy fix is available
I found this item to be perfect. For those who complained about the product collecting inside the wheel and then dropping off creating burn spots, a very easy fix is available. Sure, it would be nice if the manufacturer made a solid wheel, but that would increase cost of production (more plastic) and shipping (more weight). To fix the issue, take the left wheel off (depress the two little buttons and slide the wheel off the axle), then press an 8″ aluminum pie plate against the hub to make in imprint. Cut out the hole, slide the pie plate (curved AWAY from the wheel) and wheel back on the axle. Then use a mallet to gently pound the pie-plate flat enough so that it clears the bearing, and you have created a cover for the inside of the wheel. I just used mine on grass I had thoroughly wet down, and had no problem at all with fertilizer clumping inside the left wheel. I am a 76-year-old female. ;-D HTH.
Best deal out there for a broadcast spreader. Period.
Before I bought this, I borrowed the bigger version of this model from my sister that costs about 50% more. Although that model has a larger container space (meaning it holds more fertilizer/seed, thus fewer stops to refill are needed), the broadcast spread pattern is essentially identical compared to this model.
Good quality spreader for DIY lawncare
Much, much better than the old fertilizer spreader I had that attached to the back of my mower. This one doesn’t clog. As others have mentioned, fertilizer buildup inside the wheels could be an issue. The handle is a little shorter for taller guys (sore back after doing our 1+ acre lot), and having to constantly hold the handle down with that much spring tension was a bit annoying. Overall, I’m happy with the purchase and would do it again. Fertilizing using this broadcast spreader is going to save us tons of money over hiring it out, and this doesn’t take up much space in the back shed.

Spreads great. The only issue is the wheel issue that others have mentioned. The inside of the wheel collects whatever is spreading and could potentially spill more out than desired. I rinsed it out with a hose afterwards and didn’t have any problems. It would be better if they just built a wheel with two sides, but overall the product does what it’s supposed to. Much better than my prior spreader.

Have had spreaders in the past and they were more of a pain than good. So I am happy that this one is holding up and works well all the time.
