Learn more about our spreaders in our FAQs section below.

Do drop fertilize spreaders work well?

Yes, drop fertilize spreaders work quite well and are known for their precision and even distribution of granular materials such as seeds, fertilizer or weed killer. These spreaders release the product directly down from the hopper to the ground in a path as wide as the spreader.

Drop spreaders are an excellent choice when you must be specific about where the product is placed, such as in smaller lawns or areas with many landscaping features. They are particularly effective at navigating obstacles and narrow spaces.

Are 3-point fertilizer spreaders accurate?

Yes, 3-point fertilizer spreaders can be accurate. However, their accuracy largely depends on how well they are calibrated and maintained. Some models may offer fine adjustments for use with specific rates, such as around 200 to 300 pounds per acre and 3 mph.

How do seed spreaders work?

Seed spreaders work by distributing seeds evenly over a surface. The process begins by filling the hopper, a container-like part of the spreader, with seeds or fertilizer. Many spreaders allow you to adjust the rate at which the seeds are dispensed. This ensures that the right amount of seed is spread over your lawn or garden. There are two main types of seed spreaders: broadcast (or rotary) spreaders and drop spreaders. Broadcast spreaders fling the seeds in a wide arc, covering a large area quickly, while drop spreaders drop the seeds directly beneath the hopper, providing more precise coverage. The specific operation can vary based on the type and model of the seed spreader, so it's always best to refer to the manufacturer's instructions.
