    This is my third spreader in 18 years. It rcealpes a Scotts tow-behind and this one is far superior. The hopper is thick plastic (polypropylene?), including the screen (nice touch), and all bolts that attach to it are stainless steel. That is a good thing because on my Scotts, they rusted even though the unit was taken care of. It assembles well in about 30 minutes but be sure to read all the instructions. Since the bolts are very similar in size, measure them to ensure you use the right ones in the right place. On a sad note, the unit arrived with one of the side handles missing but two emails later, Earthway sent me a new one (actually two), free of charge. Earthway's customer service was very helpful once a dialog was established. I should point out that this unit comes with a tow extension which I needed for my John Deere tractor. Another nice feature is the setting adjuster has a setpoint that can be tightened. This allows me to close the grates on the hopper (for instance when going over the driveway), and then return to the desired setting when I hit the lawn. The Earthway spreader is very sturdy and I believe I will get many years of use with it. The only suggestions I have for the designers is that the next model have a wider wheel width to reduce tipping the unit is somewhat top heavy but the double plate hitch helps with that.
