The best drop spreader?

2598 Views 7 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  gene_stl
Hi all,

I have a small 41 m2 (441 ft2) cold season lawn in Stavanger, Norway.
When I bought the property I got a broadcast spreader with the house. As you may understand, it is not really suitable for my small lawn. It has no side guard and flings everything i put in it, all over my flower beds and even the street outside of my garden

I am therefore looking for a high quality drop spreader.
So far, I've only found some cheap stuff that really only work for spreading sand and grass seeds.

Do you lawn geeks have any good suggestions on what I can by to cover my needs?

Regarding the hand spreader shown above, I picked up a hand cranked one by Scott and I don't care for it at all.
It has jammed itself on all the different materials I have put through it. (Pelletized lime, garden fertilizer, bone meal,
scotts Grub Ex) I bought it for our flower beds which we have been working on. I would not buy it again.
You should be fine with a Scotts drop spreader. (I would have though I would be fine with the little handheld I bought. It's usable but is not a great product)
This one is pretty beatifully built and will set you back six to seven hundred dollars.
