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.
