The Seed And Fertilizer Spreader Seeds Your Lawn with Ease

Spread fertilizer, seed, granular lime, sand or ice melt with the Craftsman 85 lb broadcast spreader. The large, 85-lb. capacity hopper offers fewer stops and refills for time- and energy-saving convenience. Its large 4 ft. to 8 ft. spread covers approximately 12,000 sq. ft., so you can cover more ground in much less time quickly and efficiently. The hopper is constructed of heavy-duty polyethylene for rust- and corrosion-resistant performance in all weather. Its heavy-duty steel tubular frame can handle even the roughest use and abuse. And with its at-your-reach flow control, you can adjust flow from the reach and comforts of your tractor seat.

Boasting a universal design, this seed and fertilizer spreader conveniently fits all brands of riding lawn tractors. Its large, 10 x 4 in. turf tread rubber tires provide sure-grip traction and smooth-rolling maneuverability. With a weight of only 17 lbs. and overall dimensions of 33 in. x 50 in. x 28 in., the spreader delivers no-hassle storage in your shed or garage, as well as exceptional portability and maneuverability. Some minimal assembly is required, but it comes with a quick, easy 1-page instruction sheet for no-hassle assembly in less time.

Would not have bought if I had FIRST READ Reviews!
I too am very disappointed with Craftsman Spreader Model No. 486.243222. I bought this one at the Sears Store in Beauont 7-11-2005. Due to the dry summer just before Hurricane Rita struck I did not use it until spring of 2006. The gear which drives the spreader wouldn't operate with more than 5#s of fertilizer in the bin. I made it through early spring. Fortuantely Guarantee was still in effect. The Repair Dept at the Sears store finally ordered a new machine. The new machine was worse than the old machine and wouldn't spread from the first. I tried "beefing" parts which operated the spreader but it only worked with 4 - 5#s of fertilizer in it . I rerouted the cable which operates the sliding door. I too find the control which operates the amt. of fertilizer distributed to be located nearly out of reach from the seat of my lawn mower. I went to Agri-fabs web site and found that this model is not in stock and no parts are available for my spreader from them and even if they were the spreader gears are flawed because of the plastic gears and the case. I was fortunate that I bought this spreader on sale and didn't pay $85.00 for it. I am looking for a much heavier geared pull behind spreader. It won't be Sears product. I would have glady accepted a refund . All of the negative remarks that others have written about this machine are true for my situation.

Easy to assemble and use.

This two behind spreader made it easy to fertilize a large space. Although a bit difficult to reach back to adjust the lever due to the large seat on the garden tractor, you are able to reach it without getting off. Saved considerable time and effort vs. the push spreader used previously. For disclosure, I am a Sears associate.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Okay for price

For the price I paid it was worth it but that being said it was complicated to put together took almost 2 1/2 hrs it does the job I bought it for I have 3 acres to seed and it did the job all in all good for price but if you want something worth more pay more

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Assembly was terrible

The holes on the tubes were not aligned. I was able to correct the problem by setting the problem holes first and then setting the correctly bored holes/tubes. I wasted a good hour partially assembling and disassembling and then reassembling. The construction is cheap and I don't expect it to last long. Luckily I only need it for seed since I don't use chemicals, so it will only get used once or twice a year.

Pretty good

This is the third year I have used this spreader. I had no problems with it the first two years. It didn't take long to put it together. When I got it out this spring the sliding piece that opens and closes the discharge space would not close. I discovered that after I had filled it with product. I finally went in to the store and had them order me a new cable. I took in all the literature and the salesman said that is what I needed. I tried to put it on tonight. From the diagrams in the original instructions it looks like the cable was already attached to the impeller under the hopper. So I have to take it apart. I can't just reverse the steps because I am afraid when I remove the hubcaps and wheels I won't be able to replace them. Tomorrow I will try undoing enough of the frame to gain access to the impeller parts so I can insert the cable in the sliding plate. Hopefully that will fix it. I get Sears products because you can always order parts. But the part came with no instructions. I still think the spread was a good purchase because I think I can get it fixed.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Broadcast spreader

I bought this to apply fertilizer by pulling it in back of my riding lawnmower. It does a very good job. I wonder, however, if the setting is correct, since the amount of fertilizer appears to be somewhat light. It works as advertised and makes my job easier to fertilize my lawn.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Spreader

I recently purchased a home on 2 acres and wanted to save money in lawn care by purchasing my own spreader to hook to my new lawn tractor. Works well and have used several times already.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
