Agri-Fab 130 lb. Tow Broadcast Spreader is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 157.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Some assemble required I bought this spreader to help plant a couple of food plots on my property. The materials of the product seem very well made and that putting it together wouldn't be that difficult....wrong! The biggest issue is you put the spreader together and leave all of the bolts / nuts loosen until you have it all together and then you tighten them which solidifies the structure. My problem began when things didn't line up right and the disk on the bottom didn't clear the bar that controlled the seed opening. I basically had to take the whole thing apart and then realign it. The next time I did it, the bars that go down to the wheels actually were resting on the axle, so the wheels didn't turn. Again, had to take it all apart and no matter how I lined it up, they were still impeding on the axle. Finally had to take them off and with a hack saw cut off a portion of each. All in all, had to take the whole thing apart 4-5 times and spent the better part of 6 hours putting something together that should have taken an hour at tops. Once it was put together it worked fine and I'm sure it will last me a long time, but how it was engineered to be assembled left a lot to be desired and did not to be so difficult.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 130 lb tow spreader exceeded expectations Purchased spreader last week after researching many makes and models. Just finished spreading 440 lbs. of granular fertilizer on my large yard. Worked very well, however lost agitator hairpin on first bag. May not have spread the pin open as I tightened all bolts. Replaced pin and worked perfectly. Also found after first bag that inflating tires to recommended psi gave the spreader more bounce, which assisted with fertilizer working down to hopper opening on about 90% of product. Reaching back to the spreader and shaking the hopper helped as unit was considerably lighter in weight with most product used at that point. A neighbor commented that the flow rod control to the flow plate worked much better than a cable control and I agree. Assembly was easy with one exception, getting the hitch support tubes and the hopper support tubes bolted properly over the axle. (Step 3). An extra helper would have made this step easier. A lubricate made plastic parts and metal parts assemble with less effort. (Step 5 and Step 11). Overall, research proved the selection of the Agri-Fab tow spreader to be the perfect choice for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from so for so good. a good spreader only complaint is first time I used it the nylon wing nut that holds the flow rate stripped. Other than that worked good, would gave it 5 stars.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Need Serious Improvement Putting this spreader together to more time than It should. I expect to have the Flow Control Rod fall out of the elongated hole in the Flow Plate in a year or two. Step 11 shows the rod placement under the plate. There are no washers to reduce the wear that the tabs on the rod put on the hole and its placement seems upside down adding to the wear. The Hopper bottom is wide and does little to allow and direct the product to the flow plate to allow spreading. This is more of a problem as the product runs low. The Hopper needs to have more of a cone shape to direct the product to the flow plate. Otherwise a paddle is needed to move the product to the flow plate to disperse the product. Step 9 the Flow Control Assembly is Flimsy at best and needs reinforcement. It needs reinforcement because the Assembly may not work well with the equipment pulling the spreader and it may have to be modified to allow the shut off lever to work better. Step 1 the hitch assembly will need to be modified to allow the spreader to be level to allow uniform spreading.

What kind of salt product can be used

Asked by: jlang

But if you do you salt please use dry, bagged salt opposed to commercial salt. In addition the spreader will need to be thoroughly cleaned following each application.

Will the Agri-Fab 130 lb Tow broadcast spreader spread leaf grow on my lawn

Asked by: thorntree
Dear thorntree - If you are referring to LeagGro organic soil conditioner, Agri-Fab does not make a spreader for this type of application. It is similar to top soil in composition which clogs a broadcast spreader. If there is another product you are referring to, please contact the Agri-Fab customer care team at 800-448-9282 Monday - Friday between 7 am to 5 pm CST for assistance.
