Nothing about this tool is great. The engage lever can't be reached by the operator while seated. The tines barely make aeration hole in the ground without adding cinder blocks on top of a piece of plywood. Doing so kinda looks like the spreader might be over loaded.
The aerater seed spreader combo was easy to set up and worked better than I expected. The star spikes put small slits in the lawn and with some extra weight on it, the slits are deeper. The system attached easy to my ride on lawn mower. I spread fertilizer and seeds quicker than a push spreader.
The advertisement stated that the "The heavy-duty, four-sided stainless steel agitator is driven by durable spike wheels." I noticed the shaft is not stainless and is already rusting after one use.
I have owned this for 3 seasons, but only used 1st season, then just got out of shed for 3rd season to use. I agree with other reviewers assembly wasn't easy, but can be done with a little patience. However, the problems lie in the design. The drop setting screw can come loose from vibrations unless you really tighten it down. The flow control handle won't stay in the off position as you turn around for the next pass, it jumps out of it's retaining notch easily with the smallest bump. The aerator augur doesn't turn well and the distribution holes don't consistently drop fertilizer. Finally the chain broke, even though the augur was oiled. This needs a redesign, save your money.
This product is easy to but together with two people. If you have all the parts it can be done if you read and follow the directions. It does a good job as a stand alone but for better use I taped a brick to the support rod in the middle it works perfect. Keep in mind nothing is perfect and I have owned other makes and models this is the best so far.

First: Parts missing, Sears wouldn't just send us the missing parts like they used to so it took us two weekends to get it assembled. Told us we'd have to wait 3-4 days for our purchase to "get in the system" before they could send us parts. Instructions are inaccurate and incomplete. We finally got it put together, used it and now I have a green and yellow striped yard because the drive disks only made contact with the ground now and then, even with weight on the hopper. Unless those disks make contact and turn, the spreader doesn't release the product in the hopper. We tried it again today and it's just too flimsy, especially for that kind of money. Taking it back. It's a shame because I had high hopes for this product. I really wanted this to work well.
