Worked Great with Modifications

The Broadcast Spreader worked great. There is no way to open or close the hopper from the lawn tractor, so I drilled a hole in the handle and attached a length of 1/2 PVC to extend the reach. It worked fine, although you haver to keep the lever actively pulled forward, or it will work its way closed again. Seems well made and fairly easy to assemble.

Overall nice product for the price

I have 9 acres of lawn to take care of. This was the perfect size spreader for me to tow behind my ex-mark zero turn mower and store in the maintenance garage to be out of the way when not in use. Two drawbacks, however, that both go hand-in-hand. One is I can't reach the handle to open and close the gate on the hopper from the seat of the mower. The second is as soon as I open the gate, fertilizers starts dumping out. So basically, by the time I open the gate and get back in the seat of the mower, put it in gear and go, I've already lost about 2-3 cups of fertilizer before I start moving. The same problem exists when I stop and have to put the mower in neutral and apply the parking break, so the mower doesn't stall when I get out of the seat to close the gate on the hopper. My solution to this problem is my reach tool that I keep on my mower to pick up trash while I'm mowing. With it, I can reach back with it to pull the handle to open the hopper and push it to close, without getting out of my seat, thus drastically minimizing the amount of lost fertilizer. Other than what I just described, the spreader works great and is just what I needed at the price I can afford with my budget.

Like all DR Power products, this is a very rugged unit. I especially like that it has a grease fitting for the gear box. I could not find any other units that had that. It was easy to assemble as you just have to do a final assembly. I would recommend this unit.
