Q: I am looking for a spreader that can be controlled from the seat of a zero turn with a motor between the seat and the spreader
by Tom Riner from Louisiana on July 01, 2016

A: I do not have a spreader with a long enough arm that will go over the engine to dump the material.

by Jose, Product Expert
Q: CAN THE AGRI-FAB 45-0463 BE USED IN THE WINTER TIME FOR SPREADING ICE MELT/SALT
by DAVE from Maryland on May 10, 2016

A: Dave - the Agri-Fab 45-0463 Smart Spreader will handle ice melt products, but not salt.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Jose. Does this Agri-fab 45-0463 have metal or nylon gears? Am looking for something in a tow behind or ATV attached spreader which will last longer than the $79 ones. Had an Agri-fab $79 a year ago and the gears went quickly with even normal usage. Anxious to order one today, Friday, so when you can just let me know. Appreciate your help. Tom
by Tom from Tennessee on April 15, 2016

A: Tom - the Agri-Fab 45-0463 Smart Spreader has an enclosed commercial grade gearbox with aluminum beveled gears. The aluminum gears are designed for added durability.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Will this spread black dirt?
by John Gregorich from Minnesota on May 13, 2015

A: John - sorry, but Agri-Fab spreaders are not designed to spread dirt or soil
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Is the on/off lever accessible from the tractor seat?
by Reggy from Texas on June 06, 2013

A: Reggy - the engagement handle on the Agri-Fab 45-0463 spreader is accessible from the tractor seat. Agri-Fab recommends that you always start the tractor in motion before opening the flow plate on the spreader.

The Agri-Fab 45-0463 is one of the best spreaders on our website. It offers features you do not see on others in this price range. The Agri-Fab 45-0463 comes with a generous rust proof poly hopper which can hold up to 130 pounds of material and can do an area up to 25,000 square feet.

The professional design offers a commercial gear case for durability and longevity. The Agri-Fab 45-0463 can withstand more rugged use than other spreaders on the market today. With pro style, easy set... more

From The Manufacturer
130 Lbs Tow Behind Broadcast Spreader
The Agri-Fab universal 130 lbs spreader will take the work out of yard work. Once the spreader is full it will cover roughly ˝ an acre before having to refill the rust proof poly hopper. This spreader can be pulled behind any lawn and garden tractor with a hitch regardless of make or model. The easy to adjust spreader plate can be set for precise accuracy every time. Once the spreader is set you can open and close the hopper gate without even getting off the tractor.

Greener Grazing
It was pretty easy to put together with a little help from my wife. Didn't hold as much rye grass seed as I thought it would, but the way i plant it was just right. Held 100 lbs. of fertilize easy and spreading was great.

It pulled and worked great behind my 4 wheeler. I was able to plant more acreage and more evenly and able to go back to fertilize with my AGRI - FAB tow behind spreader. Thanks for this great product.

Agri- Fab Smart Spreader Tow Behind
I used the spreader broadcasting seed for approx 3hrs. The following day I started broadcast seed pull spreader approx 300' and axel gears we're slipping. Really cheap made very poor design. Wouldn't recommend this spreader waste of good money.
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable

Nice Spreader - Poorly Packaged
Very nice, solid pull behind spreader.

Two issues:

1) I thought it was in stock but about the time I expected I got a notice that it was back ordered with a new ship date - it took a LONG time to get - in the meantime I saw another company offer it for $30 less -I should of canceled this order but didn't.

2) The box sounded like a box full of junk when delivered and was afraid to open it. After opening it noticed the parts pulled out of the card board holders. Don't think it was... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Durable, High Quality, Reliable
Cons: Packaging, Took forever to arrive

Braodcast Spreader
This product is a great value for the price. It was easy to put together and made weeding and feeding my yard effortless. I have 2 acres of mow-able grass that would take forever to do with a walk behind spreader, especially at my age. This spreader made it fast and easy.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Fast, Exceeded Expectations

My Agri-fab Broadcast Spreader
Quality Construction and very good broadcast range. I spread three bags (40 pounds) of Lime Pellets and one bag of Scotts Fertilizer (15,000 Square Feet) the first use and I was impressed. No more pushing a drop spreader up a hill and spraining my back and legs and covering limited area.

The instructions need to be modified slightly regarding the wheel axle placement to make it obvious that the whole in axle for cotter pin must be on the right side when looking of from the rear of spreader... more

I Am Very Happy With This Spreader.
I put it together by myself in about an hour. Directions were correct and easy to follow. I hooked it up, filled it up and it worked perfectly. The only thing I'm going to change is the plastic wing nut that is supplied to stop the open/close lever. After about 5-6 open/closes it slipped open more than I had it set for. Again, I am very happy with this purchase.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price
