Earthway Commercial Broadcast Spreader is a very reliable compact push spreader with 50 lbs. or 23 kg. capacity. This poly hopper commercial spreader features EV-N-SPRED 3-hole drop shut-off system which guarantees uniform spread pattern and a feathered spreading edge to help apply products as accurately as possible. It has a 2-position handle which lets you adjust it according to preferred height and T-Speed lever to let you control it easily and provide comfort. It also has a debris screen which helps prevent the shut-off from clogging by keeping clumps out. This spreader is perfect for small jobs or in places where storage is limited.
I can't imagine a better spreader. The big tires make it so much easier to put the fertilizer down quickly and evenly. It lays out a bag of milorganite in record time, I think I did my 12K sqft lawn in about 45 minutes on my first try. I have owned Ortho drop spreaders, Scott's broadcast and drop spreaders and this is by far my favorite; the others aren't even in the same class.
Everything about this spreader is designed to be durable and easy to use. The tires are great and makes pushing very smooth. Spreader operation open/close is smooth and fast. The adjustable spread pattern works great and does not change the spread rate when used. A+
Takes a few minutes to assemble, instructions are not awesome, supplement with looking at pictures here when putting together. I added a little lubricant on the plastic bushings, not sure if needed, but it did make things a little more smooth/easy to use.
Can you spread Ice Melt with the Earthway 2150 Commercial Broadcast Spreader?
I work for a hospital and would like to know if you can spread Ice Melt as well as fertilizer and seed with this spreader.
According to the manufacturer, you can use the Earthway 2150 Commercial Broadcast Spreader for ice melt as well as fertilizer and seed. They stated when using it for ice melt, they recommend removing the agitator pin in the bottom of the hopper, and to thoroughly rinse and clean the unit before using another product in it, since the salt in the melts often can burn grass if the residue is left to build up on the unit.
