      Overall, this is a great product. This is my second season using this spreader and have had zero issues. I have only spread fertilizer though, not salt. I am using this spreader with Scotts Turfbuilder fertilizer and have been very pleased. Not having a lot of experience fertilizing a lawn, I was nervous about burning the grass and being left with unsightly brown patches. I had no problems whatsoever. Adjusting the flow control was very easy and the flow control handle made stopping and starting the fertilizer flow on the move a breeze. I do have the same scratches on my spreader as those pictured above (thus my four stars) which leads me to believe this occurs during shipping. This could easily be fixed by JD with some cheap bubble wrap or something similar. If it is truly an issue for you, take it back to Home Depot as they have a great return policy. I, instead, chose to sand and paint. My gardening/yard tools are not ornaments in my garage that I expect to look like new for eternity. Due to the environment they are used in (high humidity, in contact with chemicals [salt and/or fertilizer], and occasionally washed after use) I expect that there may be some rust on occasion. IF you adjust the flow control linkage according to the directions, the shut off plate WILL work as it should. This is a matter of tightening two nuts and is not rocket science. There really isn't much assembly to this unit as it is about 75% assembled upon arrival. Why taking the time to adjust two nuts for someone was too much trouble is laughable.
