Wheels move great even with a heavier load. I'm tall so I don't bend over near as far with this spreader as I do with others. The soft grip handle is good but you need to be careful as it damages easily. When adjusting the settings with the wing-nut it can be a bit sharp when settling the leaver on and off while spreading. It would be better if the 2 were not so close to one another.

It works as advertised. However I think it is over priced.

HASH(0xa9109dbc) out of 5 stars I am 6'01 and the handle size is fine Oct. 11 2011

Overall, what a great spreader - can not be possibly compared with your local big box store's cheap, low-quality impostors like Scotts TurfBuilder model with plastic wheels. Big, sturdy pneumatic wheels, quality parts throughout - very happy with this purchase (My local lawn and garden store is carrying this model and this model only for a much higher price: close to $120. Someone at the store told me she's had this exact spreader for 11 years now with no problems whatsoever.)

One reviewer mentioned here that the handle is too short for tall people - I disagree. I am 6'01 and the handle (set on the highest setting) is just fine.

HASH(0xa9109fe4) out of 5 stars Wow! A HUGE improvement for me! May 26 2012

I've been fertilizing my own lawn for something like 30 years. After reading reviews of the crap spreaders available at home depot (wisely BEFORE I bought one), I decided to buy this one on Amazon. I don't think I've EVER been this happy spreading fertilizer :)

+ Very stable, easy to follow the contours of my lawn
+ Big tires had no problem with mole holes on my lawn, slopes / bumps irregularity. Let me move quickly.
+ Spreader throws a good distance, and very regular distribution. No fertilizer burn THIS year!
+ Hopper has good capacity. I was filling 2-3 times from 50 pound bags. No problem!
+ Easy to control flow, chart included with it let me set the right spreading pounds/yard, verified by how much fertilizer I went through. Neat :)

- I didn't buy it 30 years ago!!!

Like another reviewer, I'm over 6' tall (6'2 or 3 I guess) and had no problem pushing this thing around, on level ground, uphill, or downhill. I was *SO* happy with how well it did, it took me less than a half hour to spread 100 pounds of fertilizer on an irregular 1/2 acre of grass, and it all went smoothly.

For the first time, I'm thinking I might be willing to fertilize my lawn more than once a year. This thing is awesome! Kudos to the manufacturer.

HASH(0xa910b264) out of 5 stars Great spreader, one caveat Dec 14 2012

This is an excellent spreader, and I expect to use it for many, many years to come. The pneumatic tires are great. The controls are easy to use and work well. The hopper has a good capacity. The spreader comes completely assembled, and appears to be quality construction.

I picked this spreader after reading a lot of reviews. Two potential problems were highlighted in those reviews: the control cable for the flow control rusting, and the flow control setting being accidentally changed when opening and closing the gate at the bottom while stopping or turning.

I was pleased to see that the control cable is now sheathed in rubber insulation, so I can't imagine it rusting. Kudos to Earthway for solving a problem that only a few reviewers had reported.

As to the very minor issue, when you set the flow setting (easy to determine using the chart provided online by Earthway), you might want to tighten the set screw more than you think is necessary. I looked down into the hopper halfway through my front yard and noticed I was dispensing a lot more product than I intended. Sure enough, I had accidentally bumped the flow control wide open when I stopped the flow while crossing my driveway. Once I was aware of the problem, I tightened the set screw adequately and had no more problems.

One final consideration: This is a broadcast spreader. I need to add iron to my lawn on a regular basis, and the iron stains concrete if not swept up shortly after application. It would be nice to be able to block one or both sides (limiting the area of application) when applying product next to certain areas (such as applying iron next to a driveway or sidewalk, or applying certain types of weed control next to a flowerbed). I believe Earthway makes an optional guard that does exactly that, but I'm not sure. Next spring I'll probably try to fashion such a device out of cardboard to limit the amount of sweeping and blowing of concrete needed after I add iron to the lawn.

This is a great spreader, I'm very happy with it, and I'm glad I bought it.

HASH(0xa910b5a0) out of 5 stars Great wheels Oct. 1 2011

I have a large lawn and I fertilize three times during the year. The lawn has some bumpy areas so I wanted a spreader with pneumatic wheels. I used the Earthway 2030PPlus once and had no problems. It handled a 42 pound bag of fertilizer with great control.

HASH(0xa910b7d4) out of 5 stars Love it, but a little confusing to start May 19 2012
By P. Heaton - Published on

I got this spreader after spending weeks trying to decide on trying my luck with another drop spreader or a cheap broadcast spreader. I decided on this Earthway spreader, have had it for months and could not be happier. I can spread the product on the yard in less than half the time of my old Scott's drop spreader and if you pull out the agitator it does a decent job spreading salt on ice thought it is not a common occurrence where I am at now. The pneumatic tires are awesome if you have divots, roots, or any other obstacles that are hazards for plastic tires. It took a little getting used to when dispensing product near flower beds and mulch, but nothing too hard to do. The confusing part comes with figuring out the settings for dispensing product. I have learned to calibrate the spreader (I recommend this all the time now), but was used to just getting a Scott's spreader and using the setting on the bag. The matrix calculator the spreader comes with helps with granular product of medium or large size, but tends to deliver too much of the smaller products. The good news for those that do not like to calibrate spreaders is that it seems more companies are including Earthway spreader settings. Needless to say this is a quality spreader for the price and I would definitely recommend it.
