    Chapin 80 lb spreader

    By Mark on 01/13/2017

    Love it. By far and away a much better spreader than I've ever gotten from scotts or others. Excellent item considering cost to quality. No hesitation recommending this spreader to anyone needing a new one. Customer service was great.

    So far so good

    I like the way this operates, however, I used Scotts fertilizer and set the gate opening according to instructions and put on way too much fertilizer. After some experimenting I ended up setting the Chapin at the same rate as Scotts. The Chapin chart suggested 3.25 Scotts equals 12 on the Chapin.

    Chapin 8200A Turf Spreader

    By W. on 08/01/2017

    Assembly was very simple and all components appear to be first class. Loaded fertilizer (50 lb. bag) and applied to lawn. Spread appeared to be very even and compared to my previous spreader output time was cut by approximately 30-40 percent. I especially like the large tires for ease of movement and load handling capacity even though I only loaded 50 lbs on initial trial. The last few pellets of fertilizer didn't feed into bottom exit slot easily and had to "back & forth" spreader a few times. Clean up was easy. Very pleased.
