One of the most important issues which have the least attention worldwide is the food we are eating. It is quite surprising to know that the food we are consuming is often the first meal of the pests and insects. With no proper care, today, this food is being more contaminated and dangerous for human health and life.
The reason for this is a lack of use of fertilizers. Maybe the lack of fertilizers isn’t that much of an issue as much as the lack of proper and even usage of fertilizers is. You do use fertilizers but do you use them effectively and efficiently so that your plants are completely safe from pest attacks?
Many of you might not have any answer for that which is why we recommend you to get a fertilizer spreader. The following review is upon the Top 5 Two Wheel Walk Behind Fertilizer Spreaders.

2. Earthway Ev-N-Spread Flex-Select Pro 3-in-1 Walk-Behind Broadcast Spreader - 80-Lb. Capacity, Model# F80PD
The Earthway 2050P Estate 80-Pound Walk-Behind Broadcast Spreader is another great one which has a durable and long lasting construction. There is a walk-behind mechanism to give you the maximum comfort. With "Ev-N-Spred" system, you are assured of the even fertilization. There is a heavy-duty frame which can hold up to 80 pounds easily.
The hopper is large and has been made out of plastic. There are 10-inch tires which make the transport easy. There is a commercial-quality gearbox with durable and enclosed gears which also have a handle-mounted controller that can be easily adjusted for varying rates of distribution
3. Earthway Even Spread 2150 Commercial 50 Lb Broadcast Fertilizer Spreader. Red, Heavy-Duty Walk-Behind Push Garden Seeder with Adjustable Drop Rate and Driving Handle. Large 13 in Pneumatic Stud Tires.
The Earthway 2150 Commercial 50-Pound Walk-Behind Broadcast Spreader is a great Walk-behind broadcast spreader which features durable construction. This spreader is similar to the one mentioned above but there is the main difference. It has a 175-pound load capacity which is more than just enough for spreading fertilizers on a large area. It also has bigger tires of 13-inches which means it is much easier to transport. Customers really liked this one because they said that they had a big capacity which was enough for a big farm.
There is an adjustable handle and spreading-rate control function as well which makes the spreader quite effective one. It includes the patented "Ev-N-Spred" 3-hole drop system to ensure even fertilization. It also features a super-duty gearbox, designed for durability and long-lasting wear. However, the only negative point is the fact that assembly is required for this spreader
The Earthway 2030PPlus Deluxe Lawn & Garden Spreader with 9-Inch Pneumatic Wheels is a great one and is recommended for mild usage which means neither can you have a whole big field fertilized at one single time nor is it going to end the fertilizer in a small area. It has a normal capacity of 100 pounds which makes it a good one for mild usage. There is an even spread of all the different types of granular materials.
There is a 3 hole drop shut-off system as well. With 9-inch pneumatic tires, there is easy transportability with no rust at all. The chassis has been coated with Epoxy powder. The best thing about it is the fact that it comes fully assembled and you don’t need to have any extra stress tightening the screws. The spread pattern can be adjusted between 6' to 10' (feet).
The Agri-Fab 45-0502 Broadcast Spreader is the last one in our list but it is surely the boss when it comes to working. It has a 130 pound capacity with no rust poly hopper. Easily carry it anywhere and have the fertilizer spread on an even base. The entire package includes a hopper cover, grate and spread shield as well. It comes with an enclosed commercial-type gearbox with aluminum gears making the work according to your needs.
With large pneumatic tires, you have easy carriage facility. There is an accurate flow control adjustment with a solid rod on/off the connection to flow gate. The best thing about this spreader which no other company gives is the 3 Year Limited Consumer Warranty. No other company in our list gives any sort of warranty for their tool but Agri-Fab surely does. It has been Made in the USA with some imported components.
If you are looking for the right fertilizer for your field, we would suggest you choose the best one from above depending on the field size. All of these fertilizer spreaders are good and have their own pros and cons. Do recommend these to others as well so that they have a good farming time as well.
