The Earthway broadcast spreader has gears that are manufactured with a diamond plastic material that is very hard. Due to the corrosion factor of the material used, this will not corrode.

answer 2
no, plastic enclosed-better solution. Gears are hard plastic or nylon. Wears well and is self lubing, I replaced spinner and added lithium spray after cleaning, after 5 years.

Question

spreadibility

The web writeup says it handles fertilizer, seed, & salt.
Will this model spread dolomitic limestone for lawn and garden? This is a very fine meshed powered material. Wondering if it will flow through the 3 holes smoothly.
Thanks

answer 2
One of the drawbacks is I have never been able to adjust holes small enough to get proper drop rate. Same problem w/ Wisdom pesticide- .4 lb. covers an acre. I can get same chemical in larger granules, but costs 10 times as much.

What is the spreader path for this spreader?

There is not an exact answer for this question because the size of the pellet or material determines how far the material will be spread. For instance, if the material is fine like sand it will spread it in a 6 foot path. If the material has pellets the size of 1/2 BB's (as in BB gun) it will spread in an 8 foot path.
If the pellets are the size of BB's the path will be 10 to 11 feet. These are approximate but a general rule of thumb is the larger the pellet, the larger the path.

Mine has done fine for 8 years, just wash immediately after use or the metal frame will corrude and then the axel comes loose from the gear box.
