Looking for a spreader for top dressing the lawn with soil, I see that soil isn't listed for this one specifically but would it work?

Asked by: Mack333
I have one and would not use it for top dressing. Even at maximum, the opening is too small and will plug up.

Agri-Fab 85 lb Tow Spreader is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 280.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from As expected for the money If you are looking for a high-quality workhorse you should find another option. This is a mostly plastic value spreader. My lawn tractor has a 1 7/8 ball instead of the simple pin hole and I was able to mount a hitch coupler from Harbor Freight to the arm of this spreader (holes lined up well enough). I would prefer something with a bit more of a hopper inside to break up clumps (this one just has a cotter pin). I might have to rig something up for that. The spreader mechanism is also all plastic, pretty rigid and should hold up alright. I'm planning on using this 4-6 times a year to spread Scott's products so this will do for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does The Job I've never had a tow behind lawn spreader before, but for a few acres of lawn it was a must have. The slide gate at the bottom of the hopper that controls the amount of fertilizer released could use some work. It's not very precise or consistent. It does the job though. One note is that when you move the lever to open it, you'd better be moving! I dumped a few piles of fertilizer before I could get going as the handle isn't reachable from the seat of a zero turn mower. This sat at an odd angle because the zero turn mower's hitch pin hole was a few inches higher than a lawn tractor. I had to add a drop hitch assembly to level it out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact tow behind tractor spreader I bought this Fertilizer Spreader couple of weeks ago. It arrived well packaged and with all nuts and bolt parts. It was not an easy assembly as the directions and U tube video are confusing. After couple of attempts, I managed to assemble. It works well and does even spreading of fertilizer, however, had problem with granulated lime. It clogs up easily, may work easy with pelletilzed lime. Wish there was a screen at the bottom and a cover with this Spreader. The dialing mechanism is kind of flimsy and needs more robust. For the size to hold about 80 lbs material, the price seems very reasonable. All parts except the dialing mechanism are sturdy and well built.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Agri-NOT-Fab This took me two hours to put together and it literally broke 10 minutes into its first use! The lever that controls the trap door broke with the door shut. I could still manually pry it open, but what good does that do; it would just dump the entire load before I could hop back on my mower and move. Before it broke, its spread of Milorganite was really inconsistent; it would dump a bunch and then hardly any at all. I saw on other reviews where the manufacturer recommended contacting them for replacement parts, but I don’t want anything replaced on this besides my money. Horrible and I’m taking it back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good Lawn Spreader I bought this spreader to feed and seed my lawn and small pastures for my farm. It took two of us to put it together just about one hour. We use a small, 23 hp, garden tractor to pull it. We were conservative with the load we put in it. The rated load was 85 pounds, but we thought 50 pounds seemed to be about right for the rolling and spreading system. We have treated about 12 acres so far without problems - and it sure is easier than pushing one of the walk-behind units. The purchase price was excellent.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cheaply made and does not really hold 85 lbs. I put one of these together today....Pretty easy to do...BUT.....The washers that are supposed to go on each side of the axles....are way to big and just float around without doing anything. One the outside of the drive wheel...the center of the washer will slip off the end....the hole is too big and the cotter pin won't hold it in. The "Lock" slider for the control lever is really hard to unlock to adjust the rate of flow. And that lever is on the front of the unit...so when you open it, then go back to start your tow vehicle....the fertilizer pours out on the ground....you have to pick that up or burn the grass. I put a 35 lb. bag of fertilizer in this thing and it filled it up to within 2 inches of the top. So forget about their claimed 85 lb. capacity. Other than that it seemed to do OK.....I wonder if I could get a longer control cable that would reach my mower seat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little spreader [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Picked this up yesterday so I can put fertilizer and ant bait down before summer. It took about 30 minutes to assemble but it wasn't hard. Like most manuals, it lacks good pictures and as you go page by page you will have to refer back to the front page where it has the breakout of parts and letter coordinated. I did 2 runs for the back and front and it worked like a champ. I washed it down and probably wont need it again for a couple months.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product, poor assembly instructions The spreader itself appears to be of decent quality, works well. I have almost 2 acres and was able to put my lime and fertilizer down with no problem. My only complaint was that it took me an hour to assemble. Typically I can assemble a simple product like this with little or no problems. The instructions were poorly written and had no pictures/diagrams to support the directions.
