Agri-Fab UTV/ATV Broadcast Spreader, 185 lb., 45-0329 is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 100.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good I spread lime at a rate of 4000lb/acre. It didn’t take the wide open setting With no screen on such a flowable product. I could have gone faster and it might have worked better as I used a 0turn mower. Very sound product. Well worth the money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst thing I've ever bought I have never written a review on anything before but this thing is so bad it needs to be brought to people's attention. I bought this spreader and the first time I used it the shaft from the gear to the spreader broke. I ordered a new shaft and when I took the gear box apart there was a cheap plastic piece for the shaft to turn in and it was broke also. To fix this thing I would have to order multiple parts and even then I am not sure I can fix it. I only used half the poundage of fertilize this unit is rated for. When I bought this spreader I really felt like I had bought a well made unit because of the heavy grade metal and welds but I was wrong. This is undoubtedly the worst purchase I have ever made.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Complete mechanical failure within hours of use Broke the first day I used it. There’s a thin plastic bushing that’s supposed to protect the shaft that powers the spinner from rubbing against metal. The bushing wore out without me realizing it, and the shaft wore cleanly in two, and melted the plastic gear box. It failed completely after operating for maybe 5-6 hours. If they had a bearing for that shaft, it would have been a five star implement.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Grate restricts flow.of fertilizer Quite Disappointed. If more than one 50 lb bag of 5-10-40 (made for me at local fertilizer plant) is put in hopper, fertilizer packs in tight and does not flow down through the Grate. The weight of the fertilizer and the funnel shape of the hopper must act as a compacter of the fertilizer. Have to dig down to the Grate to loosen the packed fertilizer or take many trips back to the barn to put in limited amount of fertilizer each time. Not very practical for a 4 acre apple orchard. Next time I will remove the Grate and see if it works any better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfect, tough well designed spreader This is my second Agri-fab spreader. I bought their 130 lb push spreader 2 years ago, it works when my 18 year old tow spreader needed to be replaced....Agri-fab was on the short list of options. I purchased the 185 lb Agri-fab spreader due to its metal gears, metal flow control and wide wheel base. I have 2.5 acres of lawn with rolling hills....other spreaders were too narrow and risk tip over....not this one. It's also designed to tow behind a 4 wheeler or a lawn tractor (it's adjustable)....tow bars on other spreaders were just too low to the ground. It works perfect. If you're looking for a heavy duty spreader to tackle a large lawn with a high level of stability due to uneven terrain....this is your spreader. Now the bad news. I did have an issue with the spreader as received. The drive shaft was assembled backwards from Agri-fab creating a side load on the metal gear box, causing the plastic gear box covers to crack and break. Agri-fab sent me replacement gear box covers, they were easy to contact and reacted waiting on the phone. I disassembled the shaft and gear train...reversed the shaft...reassembled and no more side load grinding issue. Regardless of this issue....I still give this product 5 stars. It's very well designed, works excellent and issues were resolved quickly by Agri-fab.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 185 lb. Tow Spreader worked well on the Farm I bought the 185 lb. Tow spreader to plant German Millet on a 3 acre field using my ATV. It definitely requires two people to assemble, but assembly was easy. The larger wider tires were a big plus on the ruff disked up field. The spreader controls were perfectly placed for working off the ATV. The spreader worked flawlessly and setting the amount of millet seed to be spread was simple. The manufacturer probably didn't intend on this spreader for farm use but it was built heavy duty enough that it worked great and spread smoothly on ruff dirt. I would definitely recommend this spreader to others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Agri-Fab 135# Spreader Quality The Agri-Fab ATV 135 # spender is of medium quality, takes a couple of hours to assemble, assembly instructions are diagrams only which could be improved. The spreader settings are not exact and have to be estimated from other spreaders. ON/OFF reach from an ATV is acceptable but it is a stretch. Axle disengagement for transportation is good idea but pin for engagement takes a few moments to line up to insert. Only first use and I was satisfied with the results. Question durability of the transmission which appears weak. Time will tell. For price, I would recommend but there might be others on market of better quality?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Need help with closure We cannot get bottom to shut all the way, about a 5/8" gap and fertilizer falls right out. We'll need to call and hopefully resolve the issue
Date published: 2020-05-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Agri-Fab spreader Seems to be well constructed, so far appears to working as expected although I have only used it once on my 3 acre lot. I did have problems when assembling due to missing parts which the retailer (Farm & Fleet) corrected. Assembly instruction could have been much better, only pictures were in the instructions making it take more effort than necessary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Spreader! I cover about 2 acres and this made it easy. I would recommend this product to any of my friends. I own an, AgriFab, lawn vac and it has lasted for years. Great Product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Look at directions first and make sure you get it A little hard putting it together but after that it really works nice. I am happy with it so for, I have spread about a thousand pounds of fertilizer with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice product. Well made and works very well. Holds lots of product so you don’t spend all day spreading. Easy to assemble.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never Again I have owned this spreader for a couple of years. I have 5 acres and use this spreader twice a year for fertilizing. Every time I've used it something on it breaks, especially the gear cog and I'm stuck trying to fix it. The adjustable volume handle does not close the opener all the way no matter how much adjustments that are made. Very poorly designed spreader. I would highly recommend you find another product for this use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Agri-Fab185lb Spreader After researching, the Agri-Fab 185lb capacity spreader was my best interest. Had issues with the gear box right away and Agri-Fab was mailing a new part. Great Job. I will get many many years out of this. Thanks Mike

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy Works great. Wheels have a wide stance for excellent stability on a side hill. Control is easy to reach from seat of lawn tractor. Only "complaint" would be that control settings don't seem to correspond to anything that's printed on a bag, but approximate settings can be figured out with a little attention.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Looking Unit Well built spreader. Instructions could be a little more detailed, but was able to assemble without too much difficulty. Purchased to replace smaller spreader and looking to use at least twice a year.
Date published: 2019-11-20
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stable, works well I have some steep areas and the spreader remained stable, even when full. The grate works well for fertilizer, but should be removed for grass seed, if the lighter seed doesn’t flow correctly. The Utube assembly video is necessary since the written assembly instructions are impossible to follow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent American Quality!! After reviewing many spreaders, we decided on this unit. With over an acre of grass we needed a spreader that has the capacity to reduce refill stops.The wheel base to height dimensions will keep this unit stable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Food plot machine!! I had this a little over 1 year. Works amazing for beans and wheat that I've used it for. The big tires and wide axle make it so it doesn't want to tip. This is a regular part of my food plotting tools!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Weak Rod From Fly Wheel To Broadcast Blades I purchased this product 1 month ago, use it 3 times for planting my grass around my newly built home. The 4th time I tilled and leveled the rest of the land next to my home, just before the rain hit and when I went to use the spreader the fly wheel assembly blew apart. I now have to wait until it drys again to plant! The round trip to take this product back in my truck (low gas mileage) is 80 miles, I"m not happy!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Agri-Fab 185# Pull Behind Spreader Hopper feed door (slide mechanism) does not operate when hopper is full. Filled hopper with 150# of granular fertilizer and had to manually slide the feed door open and closed. Operates relatively well with 50# in hopper, but any more than that and you are on and off the quad / tractor, manually operating. Not good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought this for food plots. Worked great for spreading lime pellets and fertilizer for our food plots. I have no experience planting anything larger than a yard garden. Not yet ready to try it using fine seed like clover, as I'm afraid the seed would go on too heavy. We pulled it with a Simplicity garden tractor and it worked fantastic. You are close enough to the handle to be able to shut off the seed when necessary. The first outing went really well. Takes a bit of tweaking to get the setting right. Look forward to using it early August for planting late fall crops.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tow compact behind spreader I have owned. Should have bought this one a long time ago....way better than the small one it replaced. No blocked flow during application, nice wide even spread plus it holds enough fertilizer to do my whole yard without stopping to reload

Can this be assembled for the buyer. I am an 83 year old woman and cannot do the assembly needed.

Asked by: Thelmer

Can this be used to spread salt/sand on my 350 ft driveway during the winter?

Asked by: Kayo52
Dear Kayo52 - While ice melt is the recommended winter application, salt and dry sand can be used. The hopper cover, included, will help keep the materials dry especially with sand as it does retain moisture causing the gears to lock up. When using any harsh material in your spreader be sure to thoroughly clean after each use. 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 spreader be used to spread powder products?

Asked by: et70

can you disengage the spreader while towing to a remote location?

Asked by: shakespear
Dear shakespear - Thank you for considering the Agri-Fab 175 lb spreader. The spreader is equipped with a removable pin in the left (drive) wheel. Remove the pin to disengage the drive wheel so that the axle, gears and spreader plate do not rotate. With the drive wheel disengaged, the spreader may be towed at speeds up to 20 mph. If the drive wheel is engaged do not exceed 6 mph. Reference page 8 of the owner's manual. If you have additional questions please contact the Agri-Fab customer care team Monday - Friday between 7 am to 5 pm CST at 800-448-9282
