Defective product wrote

I returned the lawn spreader. Couldn’t install the drive wheel properly because the drilled hole for the cotter pin was on the end of the axle and not on the inner side of wheel. I guess I could of drilled another hole, but for the price I paid, that’s unacceptable. Customer service was great though.

I have not had a chance to use this product yet. I bought it because I have had good luck with A.M. Leonard products in the past and wanted to try it.

Disappointed wrote

I bought this to replace a 25 year old EZ Broadcast spreader that literally fell apart. I was disappointed from the start. First, I didn't have all of the correct parts. I only had 2 of the 1.5 inch bolts to mount the handle. I did have 2 extra 2.5 inch bolts but I had to find 4 or 5 washers to make two of those work instead. The cotter pins wouldn't go through the pre-punched holes, either. Second, it may hold 50 lbs of certain types of fertilizer, but it wouldn't hold a 50-lb bag of what I was using. Not that big of a deal, but it's a tad small. Third, It didn't throw the fertilizer like I expected. I found myself making tightly spaced rows to get the coverage, and the unit began making a grinding noise when full, too. I'm not crazy about the adjustment wheel being so low either. On a positive note, I did like not having to hold down a handle as I pushed it, and the single port is a solid design. The flow was good and it shuts off positively. All in, I have had good luck with my Leonard purchases, but I wouldn't recommend this spreader.

Not much for $150 wrote

This little spreader was a hassle to assemble, is difficult to change the settings, and overall a huge disappointment. It is worth about $42.99, not $142.99.
