    Chapin 8200A 80-Pound Residential Turf Spreader is the product that I have received a few days ago. It was put right to use. This item works great and not difficult at all to use. Great to have on hand if you have outdoor areas that need work. It’s very convenient. I used it to place seed and fertilizer. I don’t usually apply these things myself. I read through instructions thoroughly before attempting it. The best thing about it is that it’s made in the USA! My neighbor came over to admire this product. I may let him borrow it. I’ll have to think about it.

    I purchased this spreader to replace an old cheap model. I like the quality and the ease of use. The only downfall is the rear stand. It is too long. Sitting on concrete the spreader is about level , it needs to be shorter. When you push it through the grass it gets very hard to control. If you hold the rear leg up and out of the grass all you fertilizer goes straight down and doesn’t broadcast. I would recommend a new design for that.

    I purchased this spreader because of the Chapin name but also keeping the past reviews in mind. The spreader is built well and looks like it would last much longer than my last spreader. The only issue I have are the lack of assembly instructions. Now, I can put most things together without instructions and this spreader was no different. The only issue I had was the extra parts and where to use them. Should I use the agitator or the auger or should the agitator be used elsewhere. No one knows because the lack of instructions, so I removed 1 star because of this issue. Other than the lack of instructions, the spreader works MUCH better than my old spreader.

    While I have a long history of using a drop spreader, it seems very difficult to find a quality drop spreader. So I decided to try a broadcast spreader. While this Chapin seems to be well-built, selecting the right setting is an issue. There is a table installed on the back of the spreader which shows a cross-reference between the Chapin setting and Scotts setting. I was spreading Scotts Turfbuilder which indicates a setting of 3 1/2. This corresponds to a Chapin setting of 13. So I thought I was being careful setting the spreader to 11. I dumped a 15,000 sqft bag in the hopper and began the perimeter pass. Before I had made it even half way around the perimeter, the hopper was almost empty. I was too busy trying to watch were the spread was going to notice how fast the hopper was emptying. So I had to go out and buy another bag. This time I took the setting all the way down to 2 and managed to get around the yard properly. I don’t know how I could had misunderstood the setting selection, but this was just not right.

    This does the bare minimum – it spreads product. But like the other reviewer said, you can’t trust the settings, and the edge guard doesn’t work.

    I used this once so far. It worked pretty well. I used it to spread home defense in my yard. I had to adjust it a couple times to make sure that too much wasn’t coming out at once but once I got it adjusted it worked pretty well. I ended up having a couple of pieces left over when putting or together that I don’t know what to do with. The directions for assembling were lacking and hard to figure out. Hopefully this pieces aren’t important. Looking forward to try this with rock salt in a couple months… not that I’m looking forward to the snow.

    Used the bad boy for the first time to seed and apply bug grannuals on a little less than 1/2 acre. Literally cut my time in half compared to using other name brand spreaders. Easiest if easy assembly. Only mistake I made was not making myself familiar with the drop settings before filling the hopper. Once familiar with setting it so easy. Actually had neighbors stopping me asking what type of spreader I was using and acknowledged how striking it looks.

    just put this 8200a spreader together, i am very mechanical but poor instructions, bolts and nuts on the bottom of box. handle laying in the bottom of box. there is a small plastic impeller looking piece but no idea where it goes. rubber protective boot for axle fell off in box. quality control terrible. i hope this thing works better that it was shipped?? for $143 i expected a bit more from a US made product. not sure about recommending this item yet.

    I received this as a sample in exchange for my honest review. I haven’t actually gotten a chance to use this on my lawn yet, and I already spread my product, but I still really love this spreader. It is big, and will hold a lot so I’m not constant refilling. It is also very sturdy, so I have no doubt that it will last for years!!
