The Yard Star Rotary Spreader provides professional-grade results without spending professional-grade dollars on a spreader.

When it comes to application, accuracy is important. Many spreaders struggle to provide an even spread pattern, often throwing more product to one side or the other. The Yard Star spreader ensures an even spread pattern and accurate application, along with a 3-hole drop shut-off system and an easily-adjustable drop rate.

A 50-lb. hopper capacity and 175-lb. load-bearing capacity allow for the rapid application of fertilizer, seed, and salt. With a 2-position, height-adjustable ergonomic handle, the Yard Star spreader makes application comfortable for operators of all heights. 13-inch pneumatic tires and a wide-set frame provide even weight distribution and all-terrain control. With a hopper cover and fertilizer/seed/salt compatibility, the Yard Star spreader allows for year-round, all-weather usage.

The Yard Star spreader will require assembly. Once fully assembled, start by making sure the spreader is properly calibrated using the instructions provided.

Refer to individual product labels for spreader settings, which differ by product.

Start by making a pass around the perimeter of your yard. Then work back and forth, down and back until the area has been covered completely, slightly overlapping the swath.

Always clean out the spreader after use. Check calibration regularly and adjust as necessary to ensure consistent performance.
