The AM70 line offers a professional spreader that will apply a wide variety of flowable material with perfect pattern accuracy! From turf fertilizers and pre-emergents to ice melts and seed, the AM70 offers the biggest bang for your buck.

All these new features produce a spreader that's even more equipped to take on professional demands. You'll still get the previous top-rated features like: Extended handle that gives plenty of foot room; wide stance that provides excellent stability; easy-view and easy-set rate control that makes settings a breeze. Positive linkage that gives instant gate control, and spring-loaded on/off control assists gate opening and locks shut to prevent accidental opening during transport. Hopper cover and screen included. Ship wt 34 lb.

Has these great features:
  • Front hopper guard eliminates accidental impact during transport and storage.
  • Hopper screen and cover are included free, a $24.95 value!
  • Extended y-handle is ergonomic and provides plenty of clearance for foot room.
  • Single port hoppper is familiar and reliable, and the bag-and-a-half capacity covers most residential jobs with one fillup.
  • Hopper from injection-molded calcium-filled polypropylene provides a great balance between stiffness and impact strength.
  • Welded axle hub distributes load to axle and is greaseable ensuring smooth rotation.

The best that I have found

Mike from MD wrote (February 06, 2018):

I looked at many different spreaders before I bought this one, and they all fell short. I even bought a Salt Dog, which broke after I put 3 bags through it (during a snow storm! Not good!) and so I returned it and resolved to find the best spreader. I believe that this is the best! Everthing on this thing is solid and well engineered. It's no wonder why they put a lifetime warranty on it.
