  • Great for up to the edge spreading
  • EarthWay is the LEADER in broadcast spreading technology

SideSpred-Control™ Spread Pattern - front and to the right:

The new EarthWay® EV-N-SPRED® with SideSpredControl™ broadcast spreader models are built in the USA and are engineered for extremely accurate application rates, easy operation and long life. EV-N-SPRED® models are lightweight, highly manoeuverable spreaders that apply any granular material or grass seed fast, easy and accurately.

The models are designed for maximum user comfort and convenience with controls logically placed for easy use. The SideSpred-Control™ is a new innovation that eliminates the need to use a side deflector, which can adversely affect your application rate, to prevent material from being spread into flowerbeds, on paths or driveways.

The SideSpred-Control™ maintains the correct application rate while it is activated, giving you excellent results in seeding or spreading while controlling the spread pattern on the left side of the spreader.

The SideSpred-Control™ is an EarthWay® exclusive.


The SideSpred-Control lever is located on the back of the hopper at the bottom. To operate, slide the control lever from the left, to the right. This will activate the SideSpred-Control™ for a partial spread pattern and prevent material from being spread to the left side of the spreader. Position the left wheel of your spreader 30-40cm from the footpath, flowerbed, or driveway and spread as normal.

When you have completed this spreading pass, open the SideSpred-Control™ by sliding the control lever from right to left, for a full spread pattern.

 This video shows how you control the side Spred lever and includes a few other features of note.
