Rated 3 out of 5 by from Spreader Spreader clogs up easily depending what your spreading. Not easy to unclog. It’s ok otherwise. Also difficult to reach the handle to turn on and off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good customer support Unit was not difficult to assemble. I thought I would need to refer to the video but the instructions in the manual were good enough. There was a problem with a couple of parts that didn't fit properly but customer support sent new parts right away that solved the problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tow Behind Spreader Excellent Quality I just received the spreader and its assembly was a snap. I'm more than pleased with the materials used and the construction of the spreader, and what I feel is fair pricing. I appreciate the use of fiber lock nuts to secure the bolts to ensure the unit will hold together over the years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Finally found what I needed. Appears to be a good build and should last for many years. I gave it four stars due to it missing a part, however customer service was quick to answer and the clear speaking nice lady sent me the part by mail in three days. I wish the tires were filled, or no-flats, but I just filled them with tire slime from the get go. Coming from a broadcast spreader, the settings on this are a learning curve as a little adjustment goes a long way, but like how I can control where the product goes better. I also made an extension for the control arm so I can actually reach it from my tractor. I looked for a while and decided on this product, and would surely buy it again.

Are the there rubber, pneumatic tires on this spreader? One reviewer said they were misrepresented in the picture and are actually plastic.

Asked by: YorkAg56
Dear 1acrehayfield - Yes, the wheels (tires) are pneumatic and rubber. Agri-Fab products have a wheel and tire assembly complete we do not have separate rims and tires so this may confuse some consumers. If you have additional questions the Agri-Fab customer care team is available Monday -Friday between 7 am to 5 pm CST at 800-448-9282.

Can this be used to spread a 50/50 mix of top soil and orgro

Asked by: jkief92708

Can this be used to drop dry sand on a driveway in winter?

Asked by: Tonyianitelli
Dear Tonyianitelli - If you can keep the sand dry, there is no hopper cover available, the spreader will work. When sand gets wet it gums up the gears causing the spreader to lockup. Sand is not recommended in any Agri-Fab spreader.
