Broadcast spreaders can throw material 8-15 ft., depending on many factors including size and density of particles, spinner velocity, and spinner characteristics. Broadcast spreaders are useful for applying granular products to large areas with little if any "streaking". However they are less likely to apply granular products uniformly than drop spreaders, as large, dense particles tend to be thrown greater distances than smaller, lighter particls.
Fertilizer bags are typically heavy and awkward to pour, so fill the spreader half-full and only over a concrete surface. This way, if you accidentally spill fertilizer you will not burn your lawn. Also, because many lawn applications contain iron, make sure you are wearing old clothing and shoes. If the residue becomes wet, it can stain.
Earthway Homeowner Spreaders are an ideal solution for seeding grass seed, fertilizer and all types of lawn & garden granular products. EarthWay products are recognized as the industry leader in spreading technology and quality. Earthway's Exclusive 3-hole drop system delivers the material uniformly and in accurate amounts for your lawn size.
The Earthway Homeowner line offers a range of both push and tow spreaders designed with residential use in mind. Rust proof poly hoppers ensure many years of use and easy to use and set gauge and lever controls make it easy to for the spreader to work with the most common yard fertilizers and granular chemicals.
Most of these spreaders require little to no assembly before use.
