Product Description

The Lesco 101186 High Wheel Fertilizer Spreader is the spreader of choice for professionals in the landscaping and lawn care industries, as shown by many of its features including a large 80 lb. capacity hopper and all stainless steel frame.

The high wheel spreader is commonly used for spreading fertilizer during spring, summer, and fall seasons, but it can work wonders when used in the winter for spreading salt or small particle ice melt on sidewalks and pathways, reducing the chances of slipping accidents occurring.

The Lesco fertilizer spreader is equipped with oversized tires, which measure 13 x 5.00-6, with rims that do not rust, increasing stability and providing easier applications on taller, thicker, and rougher lawns. The 5:1 gear ratio and enclosed gear set provides even product distribution while protecting the gears from dust and debris.

A manual deflector kit and a hopper cover are included. The deflector kit keeps the fertilizer material in the desired area you only want it in by deflecting the material so it doesn't fall to the right side of the spreader. The cover protects the material in the hopper from contamination caused by wind, snow, rain, etc.

  1. Really like the Lesco! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Sep 2017

    As others have said, this was a little difficult to put together. There is a helpful assembly video on Vimeo video. It is sent mostly assembled in carton. After assembly, I made sure to put grease in wheel fittings. Last week I used for fertilizer application, and found it very easy to use. Very well constructed- not like my little plastic wheeled Scott's spreader. Am still working on calibrating it for Fall applications. They give you two calibration(plastic) tools to help with this. Expensive, but so easy to push, especially where my lawn has a big hill. I am an almost 60 yr. old lady, and appreciate easy to use lawn care tools like this. Very happy!!!

  2. Well worth the price. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Oct 2016

    Spreader arrived in three days with free shipping. Assembly was simple, a dozen nuts and bolts and a couple cotter pins to hold the wheels on.
    I used it today to fertilize and then over seeded the lawn. My lot is just over a half acre, so this is more spreader than I really need. But, I like quality tools that work as intended and this is first class. I was finished in fifteen minutes. I expect it will serve me well and probably outlast me too.

  3. Decent spreader - better than most 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Jul 2016

    I've used this spreader a couple of times since purchase, so this is not a long term review. That said, I am pleased with it.

    I looked at quite a few spreaders and read many reviews since I made the decision to upgrade from a small Scotts spreader, as I convert the lawn to higher volume organic fertilizer.

    The Lesco is made better than any of the others I looked at. It came with most of the assembly work done; I basically needed to put the wheels on, the upper and lower handles, the "foot" and hook up the "on/off" rod. Total assembly process took about an hour, mostly due the "help" from my 5 year old. I found the instructions adequate, but not overly helpful.

    The spreader functions well, adjusts precisely and seems like it will last far beyond any homeowner applications. Is it overkill? Yes. However, if you don't want to deal with junk, this is a good option.

  4. Well Built but needs better assembly instructions 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Mar 2016

    The spreader works great and is well built. The price is the best I could find. The spreader arrives mostly assembled but the instructions are tiny diagrams and text is incomplete. I had to go to local dealer to ask assembly advice, especially to assemble the washers for the tires. The instructions could be written in much greater details and would have saved a trip and several hours. Took me about 4 hours to assemble. With good directions, this would have been 1.5-2 hours.
