Best Fertilizer Spreader

Recommended Posts

I just had my second Vigoro 10000 Rotary Spreadder break on me. The hopper broke away from the handles dumping the entire contents on my lawn. I scooped it away and used the shop vac on the rest.

What brand will hold up?? And sprin the way they are supposed to. Is the Scott's Line any Better???

The HD will be geeting this one back and Scotts is the only other option there.

If you can afford it, I would suggest looking at a rotory spreader from Lesco. I am not sure what model it is that i have but they are spendy at around $300 but they work great and will last many years if cleaned after each use.

I have used commercial spreaders from scotts, I believe the model was R8A? that worked nice too but not sure on the price...I'm guessing it is in the $250-$300 range as well.

As far as spreaders go, I have only really used the commercial brands so I am not sure what is best for under $100.

Maybe keep an eye on hsolist. That's where I got my Lesco spreader for $170.

Try the red Earthway spreader that FleetFarm sells, the one with the pnumatic tires...goes for around $65-$70...I've had one that I've used for the past 3 years and I do alot of fertilizings.

I've been using the same Scotts Speedygreen rotary spreader for several years without any problems. It covers about a 5' wide path with each pass. I usually set the guage at 50% of what is recommended and go North/South and then East/West for full coverage.The cost is around $40.

Just in FYI...I ended up getting the Scotts Basic Spreader at Home Depot to replace the POS Vigoro I got there. The Scotts is an ok unit for 26 bucks. I was already into HD for 24 bucks...so I was kind of stuck with the Scotts or store credit for something else.

It spreads nice and even and has not clogged up yet. THe construction is much better than the Vigoro.

    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.
