Chapin Chest-Mounted Spreader 8700A is convenient and comfortable to use with its adjustable padded strap. It has a 680 cubic inch capacity and a wide-mouth opening to avoid spilling when filling the hopper. This easy-to-wear chest-mounted spreader is ideal to use on any project where a full-sized spreader cannot go. It features an enclosed hopper that protects the seeds, fertilizers, or any material from any weather, keeping it dry and safe. For easier control of the direction of spread pattern and spread width, it has an adjustable gate and side baffle.
The Chapin 8700 Chest Spreader is pre-assembled, leaving only the crank handle for you to attach. To attach, remove the nut, slide handle through plastic base and fully tighten the nut. Insert handle into gear and turn clockwise to tighten. Use a 14mm wrench to snug the nut against the gear.
Make sure the Gate is closed before filling the hopper.

Place shoulder strap over the shoulder. Place the unit on the chest and adjust the strap.
Select spreader setting 1-6 to set the size of the gate.
Crank the handle maintaining a steady clockwise motion and walk a consistent pace to spread the material evenly. Squeeze handle to open the gate.
