The Scotts Handygreen 2 used to be the best little hand spreader you could buy for flower bed applications. Then about three years back Scotts probably switched manufacturers in China to save a few pennies and the quality went down the toilet. I talked to Scotts, and Earthway but they don't listen to feedback at all. I love my Earthway stainless steel push spreader but hand helds Earthway make are junk. Earthway sent me a free bag spreader but you hand goes threw the stream your broadcasting which is a pretty stupid design. I know there are other bag or hopper spreaders you can strap on you chest but who needs a bulky spreader like that for small area applications? I would like to hear from as many people as possible who are tired of the junk hand spreaders on the market and would be willing to pay $50 or even $100 for a commercial quality hand spreader. I'd even be satisfied if Scotts would pull it's head out of it's azz and once again make a quality product. If anyone has an old Handygreen 2 spreader with a solid crank style handle I would gladly pay $50 for it. The new crappy spreaders all have raised fins on the hand crank that resemble the cooling fins on an air cooled engine. Alright, everybody chime in.
