Rated 1 out of 5 by from looks can be deceiving I am really upset that this is an American made product. Whoever made the specifications on the steel portions needs to talk to whoever makes the molds for the plastic parts. They do not fit together. Had to file the plastic bolts down to get them to fit to the wheel assembly. The handle bolt holes do not line together so we tried to use wire to thread the holes together on one side. The bolts that go into the handle below the basket, go almost into the back of the basket. It makes it impossible to use a wrench to tighten. I will never buy another product from your company. Stay away from here. Worst manufacturing I have ever seen in my 60 years.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Some good features, some not so good Just like many others have said, the parts did not go together easily without filing or sanding spots. Also, the frame is not straight so the spreader wobbles when sitting on the ground. I chose this spreader due to the pneumatic tires which is a nice step up over the Scotts brand spreader, and the plastic hopper is well made and solid. The lever for opening the chute is cheaply made though and I can see it breaking somewhere down the road. I do wish it was spring loaded like the other spreaders. If AgriFab changed that feature and fixed the assembly issues, this would be a great spreader.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poorly designed & maufactured First, the Control Cable assembly came in the shipping box in pieces. There is no diagram showing how to reassembly it. Second, The Stand Tube, part #28463 was bowed out so far that 1/4" x 2" hex bolt threads would bottom out before the Tube went solid against the Frame Assembly. I had to use washers to get the bolt to tighten the Stand Tube. The Handle assembly, fully bolted, twists from side to side. There is no way to make the male part of the tube solid inside of the female part of the tube. Way too much slop in the whole assembly that cannot be taken up by the bolts. Very disappointed in the overall quality of the unit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Design, Poor Manufacturing Just put this together, the main tube that the axle mounts on was bent, and the holes for the axle holders weren't punched out properly. I tried to get the main tube bent into shape, but couldn't quite get it right. A flat file took care of the holes, but it was kind of a pain. An additional issue was the holes for the bolts were punched too hard, making it difficult to tighten them because they sank into the bar. Took about an hour to assemble,unfortunately it's crooked. I needed to get the fertilizer down, so I figured I could live with it. When I finally started, I ran into the same problem as just about everyone here, the control box is the cheapest, poorest made piece of junk EVER. There is no shut-off other than the setting lever, and you cannot tighten the wingnut enough to actually make the setting stop work. It is almost impossible to get an even spread. I would get to the end of the row, pull the setting lever to stop, turn, push it forward, then spend 1/2 the next row trying to get it properly adjusted. I always try to purchase American made products, the alternatives were all Chinese made junk, but I'm second guessing myself on this purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I am highly disappointed with this product. I have an axle holder that does not fit on the axle and one of the nylon nuts has no thread. I purchased three of them and have only put together one because it took so long to do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value and Mills offers outstanding service I purchased about a month ago to replace a Scott's spreader that had a broken metering control. Mills had a competitive price and a super price on standard shipping. As has been my experience before with them, they under promise and over deliver. Unfortunately, they don't have a retail store in my area, because if they did it would be my first stop. If I can't find what I need locally, however, they are my first choice when ordering on-line. I bought this spreader because the company is located in the Midwest, although the parts for this product, which admittedly is their cheapest, are made in Mexico. I believe they make the majority of their products in Illinois. One problem so far, and it is still quite serviceable, is the handle doesn't align exactly with the bottom bracket. It does the job as advertised, though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent...Except I try to buy local products whenever I can and I was really impressed with this spreader when I saw it on display...I still am! Works great with one exception. Despite handling it very carefully, the control lever on mine broke after just three uses. The spreader will last a lifetime...the control lever obviously will not.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Average Spreader The spreader works, however I was disappointed that it doesn't have a lever to stop fertilizer from coming out. Instead you have to pull lever that the settings are on when you stop and then reset again when starting up. I did burn my lawn in a couple small places because of this.
