Has too many issues. wrote

Not all of the bolts have nylon insert lock nuts and they work loose, including the main hopper bolts and the bolts for the wings that hold the screen in place. Some of the bolts fell out but I had the correct stainless bolts and stainless lock nuts to repair it. The locking collars on the drive shaft work loose and allow the gears to start slipping. I fixed this by resetting the collars and using blue Loc-Tite. Finally the feed hole is at the bottom of the rear panel of the hopper and not in the bottom of the hopper. This makes it impossible to use the last few pounds of material without jerking, tilting and shaking the spreader to redistribute the material. The agitator is too small to be of any use in helping redistribute the material in the hopper or push it toward the hole. With a little thought in a redesign and including locking nuts this could be a 5 star spreader.

Leonard 70s spreader wrote

I am a homeowner with about 1 acre of lawn and have gone through 3 or 4 spreaders in the last 15 years.All of them had problems ranging from not being consistant to corrosion to just being poorly designed.I finally came to the conclusion that i needed to invest more to get the results that i wanted.After studying the specs on this spreader and watching the video i placed my order.After opening the box,i knew i made the right choice. Folks this spreader is all business.It was actually designed and built to work right and last a homeowner for probably the rest of his life.It was made to last and a real pleasure to operate.This is the last spreader i will have to buy. No worries!

I really like the sturdiness of the spreader especially the gear box with it's smooth operation. My feet never engage the spreader when I walk behind it. The large wheels make it almost effortless with a full load. I'm glad I choose to get the stainless steal version because my old spreader was really rusted. Buying this spreader was an investment that will definitely pay off.
