Product Description

Fast, Effective Lawn Care with the Craftsman Universal Spreader

The Craftsman universal broadcast spreader evenly distributes fertilizer, seed, granular lime or sand over your lawn. The universal spreader includes a hitch pin that fits any brand lawn, yard or garden tractor. It spreads lawn material outward in a circular motion up to 12 feet in diameter, distributing resources over a greater coverage area than spreading by hand. Lawns and gardens will grow thick and lush when seed and fertilizer are applied properly, and root development will be strong and deep with fewer plants competing for the same amount of sunlight, nutrients and water.

The Craftsman universal spreader has a polyethylene hopper that resists rust and corrosion, as well as a heavy-duty steel tubular frame capable of supporting up to 100 pounds. Rubber turf tread wheels roll smoothly over lawns and bumpy terrain. The black spreader carries the Craftsman name. Its solid construction and consistent performance are backed by a 1-year warranty.

  • Craftsman universal broadcast spreader keeps lawns and soil beds strong and healthy
  • Universal spreader connects to any bran lawn, yard or garden tractor
  • 100 pound capacity covers up to 18,500 square feet (1/2 acre) per load

  • 10- by 4-inch rubber turf tread wheels roll smoothly and maintain consistent, stable traction
  • Clear-coated hardware and polyethylene hopper resist rust and corrosion
  • Heavy-duty pre-assembled steel tubular frame supports up to 100 pounds per load
  • Steel rod controls on/off gate

Craftsman Universal Broadcast Spreader
The spreader is very easy to put together. It tows well and cleans out quick. It has a much nicer handle for adjusting the amount being spread then other brands.

The spreader gets the job done but the construction is poor.

Based on the catalog picture I thought that I was getting the next size up spreader, i.e. the one that has a 130 lb capacity, but I had bought the lower size. However, that's OK but the construction was not up to the Sears standard. The wheels are fixed on with a friction-fitted end-piece which is hammered on in place. Although I took care with my hammer, the fitting fell off on the first use. This is a very poor & cheap way to fix wheels on. To fix the wheel on I drilled a hole in the axle fitting the wheel on using a cotter pin to keep it in place. Hopefully this will work better that the hammered fitting. The spreader works OK but the gear is very stiff & it may eventually reach the point that the wheel will not turn - I hope I am wrong!

Well designed Broadcast Spreader

I found the spreader easy to assemble and equally easy to adjust using the included instruction manual. The only thing I would change for production is a deflector for the front to keep the spreading product off my tractor during use in addition to a longer control lever. I fabricated these two items for my spreader making it much better.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Actually Works as Advertized.

I bought this to spread some damp weed and feed that just clumped up in my push spreader. Works fine.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Product

This is the second spreader I have purchased from Sears. The first one lasted almost 20 years. Only died due to my neglect. Looking forward to many years of use from this one.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Easy to Build, Easy to Use

This broadcast spreader attachment was very easy to assemble, with just the right number of parts and great instructions. With only a few common tools you can build it into a solid Craftsman product. It took a little getting used to with regard to turning it on and off for spreading and for setting the right amount of fertilizer. But once you figure that out, it's a breeze to use.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Overall A Good Purchase

It can be a bit finicky to adjust the spread rate, but it made short work of what was once a much longer task. I am sure glad I have mine!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great spreader

Purchased this spreader online and it took a week to arrive at local store for pick up. Easy assembly and ready to use in no time. Use 50 pound back with no problems, nice distribution of the grain fertilizer. Must say it took a couple of try's to get the desired spreading setting. Agree with other reviews about the handle been to short but will also make adjustment to make longer later. Overall great product and look forward to many years of use. Two weeks later after application and our lawn is perfect green!

I would recommend this product to a friend.
