Suncast SS025 Hand Held Spreader For Ice Melt/Sand/Salt Snow De-Icers
If you don't have a Hand Held Spreader already, you might wish for one tomorrow. Yup, another ice storm is headed our way. This handy item is curiously similar to the Earthway broadcast seeder that was featured here when the grass was green. It seems to work the same way, too, although the seeder has a 110-cubic-inch hopper capacity and I don't know how to relate that to pounds. Hmm I suspect it's the same thing but just a different color - gray for winter. (I would have picked a deep blue.)
The Suncast Spreader holds up to 6 lbs or sand, salt or ice melt. It makes covering your driveway or walkways much easier and you also get an even distribution of the sand or salt. If you're like GardenSnob and you keep a small metal trash can filled with sand by the front door, store this spreader on top of the sand inside the can. Just scoop a little into the spreader and walk back and forth over the driveway. Oh, what a little planning ahead can do to make life easier! After all, there's no bad weather, only bad preparation.
Available from Amazon for $13.83.
