GroundWork Broadcast Spreader, 2811S817S is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the work... however... Read the instructions on it!! Tightened up out of the box into the field. Luber the center pin with some wd40 lithium ir try to get some grease on the pin. Its factory set, so hard to get in there. It does work well after that. Take the two screws out and remove the crank to keep from fighting the assembly in the unit. Wish the center pin had a stud and nut so it could be removed and greased. For a field broadcaster it does the job. Instructions on settings are under the unit on a sticker.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad assembly Spread 2 lb grass seed and main gear locked up because of no lube on shaft. Spur gear was also loose and was skipping. Lubed and readjusted back lash. Seems ok now, time will tell!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Spreader Works as good as the other higher priced spreaders.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seeder/Spreader. Seeder/Spreader Works well but needs some up grades. a handle sewn to it to steady it would be a start. Also a waist strap to steady it against you body.

what setting for pepetized lime 40#/1,000 feet

Asked by: eeagle
It is not recommended to spread pepitized lime. There is a risk of the lime causing injury to the person using the spreader.

Why are there no instructions included with this product? I realize it is a pretty simple device, but I would hate to ruin it ASSUMING I know how it should work.

how do u set the setting/ does the little green button suppose to fit the chrome steel eyelet opening on hairpin wire???if so the one I purchase will not se in the eyelet,

Asked by: wecub
Below I have included some instructions on how to set this. Step 1: Loosen the wing nut. Setting point (little green button) on green lever fits setting numbers. Step 2: Adjust the s-shape stop (hairpin wire) to prop green lever. Tighten wing nut. Step 3: Press down the eyelet to release lever and close the slide gate. The Little green button is not for fitting the chrome steel eyelet.

how do you regulate for spreading lawn fertilizer?

Asked by: barnes
Normally the adjuster lever setting should be on a 3 - 3.5 for granular fertilizer range between 8' - 10’(ft.) broadcast width. Due to the sizes of granular fertilizer settings are intended for reference only.
