This spreader works very well and so far has held up well (I'm in the second season).
Caution: you do need to be careful when you stop, because if you don't shut the lever off, the product will continue to flow even when you stop. Always make sure you turn off the lever whenever stopping! Also, you set the spreader setting with a little wing nut that tightens and holds the setting, so when you turn the lever back on it goes back to the same setting you had before. In other words, when you move the lever on and off, it maintains the spreader setting, which is nice.
I bought this spreader 15 years ago it has serviced me very well, no problems, spreads evenly and is easy to push, I wash it after every use and expect to get another (At least) 5 or MORE years out of it. The only problem that that I have had was to replace the cotter pin on the drive wheel to the axle. In my opinion this is one of the finest spreaders you can buy
