Alright guys I want everyone to chime in. Years ago the Scotts Handygreen 2 was a decent throw away spreader that would last for quite a while. But a few years back I suspect Scotts found some other factory in China that was paying it workers even less money (if thats possible) and they switched manufacturers. When this happened the spreaders quality went right in the crapper. I would love to see Earthway take their oddball bag spreader, shrink the broadcast wheel, and enclose the bottom of it similar to the Scotts. Remove the bag and add an open hopper like a traditional hand spreader. The hand crank could be made half the size as well since the wheel would be smaller. The Earthway has heavy duty guts in it but the bag is a worthless device. Most of the time I need to broadcast material where just two pounds covers a large area. I do not want a huge strap on spreader that's time consuming to load up and empty. I want to be able to load it up and empty it very quickly. Right now the Earthway bag spreader crank causes your hand to go right through the material your spreading. I'd like to know who the genius is who tested out this product prior to sending it to the market. I also would like a hand spreader that has the Scotts ergonomic type handle that makes holding the thing a bunch of times during the day easier. Earthway makes my favorite C22SS push spreader but their hand spreaders with hoppers are all junk. The guts in the Earthway hand spreaders are all absolute crap. The Earthway bags spreaders have great guts but the design is useless. Common Earthway are you listening? I've bugged Earthway a few times to no avail on this issue. I want to get everyone on board who love to have a hand spreader that could be considered a commercial quality spreader. I would gladly pay $50 or more for a bad azz hand spreader.
