I bought this in August, 2020 and after several uses I am so impressed with the Scott's Elite and so happy that I finally decided to upgrade from my old rotary spreader. Assembly was super simple and I was using the spreader minutes after I opened the box.
The Elite spreader holds the entire 15K sq. ft. bag I need to complete my lawn. Even with 35+ pounds in the hopper, it is super stable. The wheels, while plastic, don't feel like plastic and have an all-terrain look/feel. The edge guard is effective and saves me from accidentally doing something bad to the more sensitive landscaping in the yard.
While I have only used this 4 times so far, I would highly recommend this spreader. I guess time will tell how durable it is, as most of it is plastic, but the parts that do the work are constructed of sturdy metal. The upshot is that this is a really nice spreader and a big upgrade from the standard rotary that I had been using.
