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.

It can spread

It holds a whopping 85 lbs, and the mower didn't even know it was back there, it rolled easy over my long gravel driveway. I purchased it to spread road salt and sand after a our snow and ice storm. It got it done. The only drawback I can see is the short control ****, it is a long reach back if you don?t start or stop in a turn.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

good product

the craftman broadcast spreader is great. It takes no time now to fertilize my lawn. It turned 90 minutes of work into less than 30 minutes. I am very happy with it. I wish the number selector was a litlle more accrurate, but it still works good.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Decent

This is good value. Unfortunately there was a part that was installed improperly at the factory and we had to get it repaired on the first day we used it. I does have a good capacity and if it is in working condition it does what it claims.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Works great!

No complaints on the product. Works great on my less than acre property. First time I used it the coverage was perfect. No missing spots or streaks in the lawn from the fertilizer when spreading it. We have a bumpy back yard and this holds up nicely. Would definitely recommend. Make sure you follow the directions and map it out right the first time so you only need to build once.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

My experience

I purchased this same spreader in May of 2008. (model # 486.243222) On 3-29-13 I purchased . (model#486.243223) Here was my dilemma! On 5-15-08 I ordered the gear box,axle and 2 axle hubs to replace defective parts. On 2-30-13 i went to use this spreader, (an item that is only used 1 to 3 times a year. To my dismay, the control cable was broken, (part #49820) I called and got price quotes from my local Sears store and your Sears parts direct 1-800-366-PART The part, S&H, and tax was $19.00 and change from. I bought the new spreader because I was concerned that I was throwing good money after bad!!! Yes, the spreader worked as expected when I used it the 1st week of April. The above mentioned control cable part appears to be exactly the same and even carries the same part number. HOW WOULD YOU FEEL IF THIS HAD HAPPENED TO YOU!! FOR THE RECORD I WAS TREATED WITH RESPECT BY ALL EMPLOYEES I was in contact with. For that you can be PROUD. The probuct leaves a lot to be desire
