      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.

      I use it for salt on our sidewalks. The tires and throttle makes it great !

      the rubber tires keeps good traction for getting an even spread of salt. Also the large gate is way better for use with salt.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      good seed spreader

      I bought to this to spread grass seed and fertilizer. It does the job; however, it wasn't as easy as it should have been to put together out of the box. Some of the plastic parts were a tight fit to the point of breaking.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      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.
