The Gordons Spred - Rite G Gravity Flow Granule Spreader provides the most reliable and accurate way of spreading granular fertilizers, insecticides, herbicides and ice melt products as well. It is very practical to use anywhere, including far reaching areas like under or around poles, railings, shrubs and trees. It is also ideal around grave markers, buildings, beds, and along fences, walks, walls and curbs. The flow of granules is controlled by orifice disks and the exclusive deflector plate. The spreader carries 5 pounds of granules and functions by gravity. Swath widths can be adjusted from 2 to 4 inches and up to 3 feet. Rate can be easily varied by adjusting walking speed, by shifting swath width, and by choice from 3 orifices. Spred-rite is not built with any metal parts to avoid corrosion or rusting.
I bought this spreader thinking I could use it to spread pellets along my fence line. Didn't work, the pellets would clog lengthwise in the feeder hole. About a 1/3 of the pellets were just a shade to long to flow evenly or continuously. Other than that, it appears and is as represented. More like a 10 dollar tool. I think it is overpriced. If it had worked for my application I might have thought it a deal.

Have used this spreader one time since purchase. I applied 46-0-0 urea/nitrogen granules to my 16, 300' long rows of sweetcorn. Very happy with the ease of use and uniformity of spread. I first saw this product when professional landscapers finished up a recent landscape installation to our recent house expansion project. I was impressed with the ease of use that the operator demonstrated. I just "had to have" one..
Did not buy from this site however use them in a commercial landscape business. To apply snap shot or other granular material is extremely effective. A lot less fatigue on guys at the end of the day vs using a handheld spreader. Plastic so is indistrcutable for the most part although the clear plastic straw has broke over time,not sure if use or abuse but not an issue over all, use a few with tape on cracked pieces.
For SNAPSHOT or similar material is hands down the best. We use the largest hole restricter plate FYI
