Here's the conundrum.... the idea and convenience are great, but for whom, the user or Scott's? By essentially giving me a free spreader I have committed to use their lawn products which come in a special bag only produced by Scott's. If I want to use a competitor's product, say because of results or price, I can't.
If Scott's and Home Depot price their "Snap Spreader" lawn care products low enough then great, if not, the spreader goes to the land fill.
Product was pre-assembled however am sorry that the product does not come as a fungus for lawns. It has all the other applications but not that one. Its available in all of the other Scott products but to buy another applicator for only one product application is silly. Should have bought another spreader to have avoided this.
I purchased this Snap System in attempt to start taking care of my own lawn care. It seemed like a one-time investment in a spreader, with only the need to purchase seasonal spreads & it has been a great investment.
It was easy to lock in the granuals & maneuver around my yard. I hope Scott's continues to make the granuals for this system.
