The PlantMates spreader from DoMyOwnPestControl is an updated model of one that I have used for forty years. Great quality product that was shipped promptly at the best price I could find. That always gets five stars!
We are happy with our broadcast spreader. It holds a lot of seed, so we don't have to refill often. The only draw back is the regulator (the control for the amount of seed you wish to spread), doesn't have a lock to hold it in place. You must constantly hold it with your finger. But with that being said, we would still buy it again.
As a professional PCO, I have to say this spreader is very spotty. It looks like it wants to be well built, it just isn't. The actual blade doesn't spin all the time, it looks up frequently and the bag doesn't close all the way, so if you set it down and it tips over in the truck or where ever, granular goes everywhere. Do yourself a favor and buy the Earthway spreader, it's much better and locks.
I can no longer read the calibration/settings chart on the bottom of spreader. Can you email me a replacement?
I want to sow wheat.
