    Outstanding

    By Sjc on 10/04/2013

    Extremely well made German product, takes 5 minutes to assemble and to understand how to adjust. The build quality is evident in the smooth operation of the gears when you turn the handle. My wife used a Scott's hand-held spreader while I used this nuclear weapon and she was jealous! We were spreading Snapshot for weed control. Saves a lot of time.

    Spreading Talstar PL

    By Ray on 04/30/2013

    Verified Purchase

    The directions that came with spreader were very lacking in what no. to set for spreading the Talstar PL Product... Kind of trial and error... but when the cost of the product is this much it makes the test settings somewhat costly.. Not sure I would purchase again.. to spread the product I bought.. Using my small hand held grass seed spreader is much easier..

    Works very well

    This spreader is a bit pricey, but it is worth the money. Very well designed and works smoothly. Easy to operate and clean. However, the part that is a bit troublesome is finding out where to set the hopper discharge. The product I bought did not reference the Solo. I called Do My Own Pest Control, Solo, and the company that made the product I was spreading. No one could offer a setting. All three said I would have to just experiment. Honestly, I don't know if I spread too much product (insecticide) or too little. Had it not been for this issue I would have rated it 5 Stars.

    Works really well

    By William on 05/28/2013

    I've used this for fire ant bait, fertilizer and clover seed, and it even worked for oats. It worked well each time, and it was easy to clean. The little side flap could be put in the bell/whistle category, but I ain't griping.

    By S. on 09/16/2015

    Spreader worked perfectly right out of the box. Some assembly required (handle). Put down 280 pounds of product, without a problem. Delivery of product, right on time. Used the next day.

    My new favorite tool

    By Chris on 05/29/2018

    I absolutely love this thing. I used a granular product this spring instead of my usual liquid spray and I chose this spreader to apply it. This method was actually way easier than using a sprayer. I used to it on over 200 accounts and it worked fantastic. It's like having your own personal granule Gatling gun strapped to your chest.

    solo spreader

    By Dale on 09/05/2017

    this spreader is worth the money. Iv'e been doing yard care for years. It makes the job easy. It spreads product evenly. works with pre- emergent, fertilizer and even some grass seed.
