Product Description

Product Description

Effortlessly spread seed, fertilizer and more with the Agr-Fab Tow Spreader.

Conveniently covers approximately 1/4 acre and holds 85 pounds.

Maintain wide distribution of fertilizer while reducing the necessary time, energy, and fertilizer to cultivate an attractive, even lawn with this broadcast spreader from Illinois-based Agri-Fab. Whereas other types of spreaders often result in overlap or missed strips, creating a line effect on lawns, this broadcast spreader distributes fertilizer in a random spray pattern to cover a width of 8 to 10 feet. The broadcast coverage nurtures more natural, uniform grass growth, while limiting the needed fertilizer for an extra ecological benefit. Designed for towing behind a tractor, the spreader also can be used for grass seed or ice melt in large open areas.

The broadcast spreader is crafted with a 1/2-inch tubular steel frame. Fertilizer or seed are loaded into a polyethylene hopper that resists rust, corrosion, and weather damage for long-lasting use. Accommodating approximately 85 pounds, this broadcast spreader is best equipped for use in yards and spaces 14,200 square feet or smaller. The spreader features a Delirn gear drive type. The spreader is towed on two 10-by-4 pneumatic tires with 1/2-inch diameter tubular steel axles. While the broadcast spreader provides excellent distribution of fertilizer and is a good choice for spreading seed and ice melt, Agri-Fab strongly discourages its use for powder lime. This USA-made broadcast spreader is designed for towing only and cannot be converted for manual pushing. This product may be covered by a limited one-year warranty. Upon shipping, the broadcast spreader measures 21-1/2 by 24-1/2 by 19-1/4 inches and weighs 17 pounds. --Jessica Reuling

By Steven R. Cottle on September 24, 2005
I used this spreader to put rye grass seed on a couple of food plots, using a riding mower to pull it. It lasted all of 1 1/2 plots before the gears separated and the wheel stopped spinning. When I tried to see if there was something I could adjust I was amazed at just how flimsy the rotating components were and how loosly they all fit together. The hopper, wheels and tubing which hold it together are fine; but the rest is extremely undersized. I do not recommend this unit for any application. Two thumbs down.

I've had one of these for about 2-3 years. Last year the gears locked up (they are made of cheap plastic). Going over 2 mph will burn them out. The controls move all over the place making the spread rate vary each time you use it. I am currently looking for a good quality replacement.

This unit worked well at first, but after a year of service as one other reviewed stated the gears don't stay meshed and the spreader stops spinning and the product just dribbles out the opening. The gears are sealed in a cheap plastic housing and cannot be maintained without destroying the housing. Another case of stupid design.

Unfortunately I didn't read the reviews on this unit until long after I had bought the unit. I sent a letter of complaint to agri-fab but they just ignored it. So I will buy a commercial grade spreader from someone reliable.

Ooof! I got suckered in on the price, and quite frankly, as one who has unwillingly been relegated to doing his own lawn maintenance due to the lack of professional results (in other words, I do because I must, not because I want to be out there over-doing lawn maintenance every weekend), this unit should have been just fine.

I literally used it 3 times on my paltry 1 acre and the spreader stopped working. I've learned since then that this is because it has a plastic differential which is prone to stripping out early on. Make sure you buy a spreader that does not have a plastic differential. If there is a saving grace, it comes with two good tires that you can strip off before inserting the rest of the unit in the trash. Steer clear of this one at all costs.

I used the Agri Fab Broadcaster today to put down Turfbuilder with halts. It worked good for about 100 feet, then the fertilizer stopped coming out. I tried several times, but after driving for a while, I would look back and nothing was coming out. I am going to buy a real broadcaster now. You get what you pay for.

This is a piece of junk the gears went out after only using it a few times.
I bought it from Lowes a year ago, and wish I could get my money back I paid $129 for nothing.

The controls are formed of a brittle plastic. Mine broke after 2 uses. It is also difficult to translate the settings between the fertilizer manufactures and this spreader. Scott settings are not transposed for you in the instructions making the rate of spreading a gamble.
