Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does a nice job! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have a very long driveway which I never salted until now. This ice melt spreader is the way to go. My son had no problem putting it together. Very sturdy. The tires had good traction. Filled it up with ice melt and away I went. Awesome product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Once assembled this is a great residential device! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Once assembled this salt spreader is a solid residential device! It has nice thick tires and a comfortable height handle. I was surprised to see how large it is and the capacity of salt it can hold. I have a 109 foot long drive way and can easily cover the entire surface with just one load into the spreader. I really like that you can adjust the amount being cast via the bottom dial and the amount of torque placed on the pull handle. I am looking forward to using it with fertilizer in the spring, it will be MUCH easier than using the tiny handheld unit I currently have. The assembly was not very clear based on the shoddy instruction manual, but I was able to figure it out within 20 minutes as it is a simple mechanical design. I like that you can choose what wingnuts are used on the handle, so if you plan to fold the handle down for storage you can use the hand tightening nuts. It comes with two different augers that are designed to cast different size materials, with specifications listed in in the manual. Also included is an cover to keep rain/snow out and an optional grate to help disperse clump prone materials.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Salty [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I live on the snow belt in Mid-Michigan and any winter day it is either freezing rain, snow or some other form of iciness. I am always fighting a battle to keep my sidewalk and driveway clear. So far I went through two of my grass seed spreaders using them to put down salt, not made for this task apparently. Then one day I discovered the Chapin 81008A Salt and Ice Spreader. Problem solved with ease. Thanks Chapin!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works not as advertised [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Chapin Salt and Ice Melt Spreader is a great concept for helping to spread salt or ice melt quicker and over more space faster. It takes less than 5 minutes to set up and you are ready to use it. It has an upto 80lb capability so this can hold quite a bit. It comes with an anti-clumping grate and protective rain cover. It features Sure Spread technology to ensure an even pattern and distribution of salt/icemelt with the innovative gate design, strategic placement of gate openings, gate adjustment for salt/icemelt applications, and adjustable baffle system for controlling coverage. Features a power coated steel frame that helps to provide full support of hopper at its base. The hopper is heavy duty. Has an ergonomic left or right handed ball gate control. Also features a large 10 inch fully pneumatic tires to provide stability over uneven terrain. And an enclosed gear box with Nylon gears to withstand the elements. We have had few decent snowfalls recently and after we cleared the driveway and walkways it was the perfect time to test this out as it can get icey fast! We filled it up with ice melt and went on a walk with it. The first thing I noticed was how it was just dumping the ice melt out not evenly spreading it like it stated it would. Made an adjustment to the baffle system and tried again and again. Unfortunately, even on the lowest level it was still just dumping it out in a pile and not at all as it's advertised to do. So, we focused more on the areas where it heavily gets ice and makes it slippery and dangerous. It was not that smooth of a ride despite stating the tires provide stability over uneven terrain. 7 times while using this the lever at the handle just popped out of the pole it connects to. There really needs to be a locking pin to hold it in place so that this doesn't happen as often as it does. The bar is just too wide for it to stay on the steel framed handle without a locking pin or something else to hold it in place. As for the dumping of the ice melt on all levels it did spread more evenly when it was down to 1/4 of the way empty. So, if you want a decently even spread then only fill it up 1/4 of the way. Which is disappointing as it should be able to handle a bag (at 40 lbs) without issue based on what it states on the box and the papers it came with! Overall, I would not give this more than 2.5/5 based on our experiences using this a few times now. I received this for free in exchange for my honest opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Salt spreader [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This came at a good time with these yucky freezing temperatures. works very well, spreads salt uniformly, the cover is important because if it does not have one and it is snowing, clumps can form. The cover is usually an option which would increase the cost but with this it is included.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Maybe for anything but salt. Does what i asked of it, however if salting for ice, the design will have a saltwater solution fill the gearbox and youll be lucky to get 2 years out of it. If i can replace the now toothless gears, I'll have to come up with a way to waterproof the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service I bought a salt spreader about a month ago and it was fairly easy to put together. We had an issue where we didn't know if the auger or the agitator was better to use for the spreader when using calcium chloride. Their customer service was so nice and helpful. We love the build of the spreader and can't wait to use it this winter.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Quality is poor Bought this to spread salt, used it twice and now both tires are flat, I pumped up one but on the second the valve has gone back into the tire and can't be pulled out and can't be filled-so the unit is useless. I called to order a replacement tire but they want $29 plus shipping. For that money I will buy a cheaper spreader that will be more useful. I thought I'd spend more and get a better unit but I was wrong. Save your money and frustration look elsewhere.
