I don't know how long the batteries will last. I did about 3000 square feet. Seemed just as strong finishing as starting. I removed a batteries until next use. You can control the width of the path and the amount distributed.
The battery-operated nature is far superior to "hand crank" spreaders as it does not require both hands. One subtle benefit is that one can hold it in either hand while spreading, not generally possible with most crank spreaders. I am not sure how long the batteries would last but it worked fine for my needs.
It has the "edge guard" feature, a simple lever which works to block seed from spreading out to the left side (meaning you need to walk clockwise around the perimeter of your lawn).
One note on the batteries: It seems to take 3 AA batteries, which seemed not to be indicated in any of the specs or listings on Amazon or even on the Scotts website. (This would seem a nice thing to include). I was, however, pleasantly surprised to find the batteries included and already installed in the product (with one of those "pull here" paper isolator things to prevent accidental turning on while shipping.
You do have to jiggle it back and forth a bit as the seed begins to deplete so that the remainder falls into the feed hole (perhaps a more "conical" design wouldn't need to do this, although that would presumably limit the capacity of the hopper or make the device unwieldy), but that's minor and not unheard of with these types of devices.
The device comes almost ready to use (need to remove the battery isolator, mentioned above), with a promotional sticker applied to one side. I foolishly ripped this off (thinking it was just one of those glossy sales stickers) before noting it had the suggested dial settings for different types of seed/fertilizer/melt. So now I will have to glue it back on or otherwise not lose it so that the next time i use it I can know what the settings should be. (They also have this info posted on the Scotts website, I later found out).
The price point was good (I guess it's a few dollars more than a crank spreader) but the ease of use makes it more than worth it.
Note: I was NOT given the product or any other consideration in exchange for this review.
I am happy to report that this spreader works just as well on grass seed. It was a breeze to spread seed in my backyard and did a nice even job!
The only downfall is when you have to shake or tilt the machine to get the seeds to the spinner in the device, a bunch just falls out onto the ground.
I can't tell if the front shuts or not, as I can't get the orange thing to move (maybe it's stuck?).
All in all, it helped me spread a bunch of grass seeds around the yard today in quick time.
So, four out of five stars.
I'd say if you just need something basic, this will do it.
