First off, I'll state that I have no prior experience with seed spreaders. My review, therefore, is from a purely novice point of view.
The unit was very easy to mount and hook up to power. I give it an "A+" in that area.
The motor ran cool and very quiet. Another "A+".
The set screws on both stops for the feed gate stripped out before I was even done adjusting it the first time. I am not that strong and feel that this should not have happened right away. That rates a "D-".
The grass seed I was using constantly got "hung up" where I would have to poke a stick into the hole to keep it flowing. The feed was very unpredictable because of this. I don't know if it would feed larger seed or fertilizer any more reliably.
Other than those issues, the unit was relatively user friendly. I suspected when I bought it that I would probably have issues with the grass seed. That is why I'm not running the unit into the ground in this review. Problem is that I just couldn't find anything else, in that price range, that was as ATV friendly for use over uneven ground.
Use your own judgement, but don't be too disappointed it it doesn't perfectly fit your needs. As for me, I'm just satisfied with not having to "hand spread" seed over my pasture.
