Details

The Handy Green Spreader II is is the ideal spreader for homeowners using granular products over a small to medium sized lawn. The hand spreader may be used for granular insecticides and fertilizers. The lightweight ergonomic design of the Scott's Handy Spreader II makes for less wrist and hand fatigue during applications

Features:

  • Fully assembled and ready to use
  • Easy-to-use on-off trigger
  • Ergonomic design reduces wrist fatigue
  • Rust-proof plastic hopper and agitator.
  • May be used for granular insecticides

How do I use the Scott's Handy Spreader II?

Adjust rate control to obtain desired amount of product. (Rate usage is usually found on insecticide product label) Do not pull trigger while filling hopper. Always fill the spreader on sidewalk or driveway (never on the lawn) and move to the starting point on lawn. Start spreader in motion by rotating crank clockwise and pulling trigger. Release trigger to stop spreader. To avoid misses or heavily covered strips, make each pass. (4 ft.) from the previous one.

Operate the spreader the longest direction of the lawn. First apply two header strips across each end to provide turning space. Go back and forth between the ends (see package instructions). Shut off spreader when approaching the header or trees. Turn off the spreader before coming to a complete stop. Keep the spreader off while backing or turning to avoid waste and possible lawn injury from over-application. Shut off the spreader just before getting to the trunk of a tree, start the spreader in motion on the other side, then turn and continue with the spreading pattern.

NOTE***For best results use spreader for only 1 product.***

    Small granules dont work

    By Ken on 03/31/2009

    My experience with this spreader has been less than likable. I am in the pest control business and I use Talstar PL (which is a very fine granulated product).  The problem I have had with the spreader is some of the Talstar gets in and around the stirring rod and stops it from turning, rendering it useless. I have gone through 3 of these spreaders with less than satisfactory results.

    Breaks really easy

    By Jj on 03/25/2011

    I am also in the pest control business and use this spreader on a very regular basis. The full plastic make-up of this product makes it very cheap and unreliable. I usually go through 1-2 of these spreaders per month. Please don't waste your money on this spreader.

    Way Better Than Earthway

    By Mariano on 08/09/2012

    Lasts a long time and is awesome. Only knock is that it only holds 5-6 pounds. It is awesome. Earthway is not.

Q
Can the Bifen Granules be applied in a dispenser like Miracle grow that goes on the end of a garden hose?

I have gone through two of these HandyGreen II Spreaders trying to spread out the bags of granules. Can the Bifen Granules be applied in a dispenser like Miracle grow that goes on the end of a garden hose? I am using the granules for flea control and it states to water the granules immediately after applying. If so, what would the mixture then be for 1000 sq ft. If not, what else can be used to spread these granules?

A
Bifen granules cannot be used in a hose end sprayer.  They do require watering after application so they can begin to release the pesticide, but they do not dissolve in water completely right away so that is why you cannot use them in a hose end sprayer.  They release and dissolve over time.  That being said the HandyGreen II Spreader does degrade over time when applying granules.  We now carry a new spreader that is made to withstand the abrasive qualities of insecticidal granules.  It is called the Earthway Spreader and is made of metal instead of plastic.  It will last for years and is worth the investment. If you want to spray your yard with a hose end sprayer however Bifen is available in a liquid formulation called Bifen IT.
