as you walk up and down the lawn, turning the handle. These may be

at once as you push them from behind, as the name suggests. Overlap
each pass for even coverage. It is easier to obtain even coverage
with a walk-behind broadcaster than with a handheld broadcaster.
Broadcast spreaders throw fertilizer in all directions.
