What setting do I use on a turf king drop spreader to cover 8,140 sq ft?


http://plantscience.psu.edu/research/centers/turf/extension/factsheets/calibrating-spreader

You have given the area you want to spread, but you also need the rate per square foot of the fertilizer. The link above tells you how to calibrate and check the rate of application.

Or you could ask Turf King direct.

The bag should have a phone number for customer support. They would be the ones to give you the conversion rate for your spreader. How many square feet are you treating?

I have lost my instructions for my hand held spreader. The numbers on the side that control the outlet of whatever is in the spreader--do these indicate the number of pounds per 100 sq. ft?


Below is a list of spreader settings. You may want to call Scotts at 800-543-8873 and verify the product you are using is able to be used in a hand held spreader.
  • For fine grass seed (blue, rye, fescue) use setting 1
  • For coarser seed (tall fescue) use setting 2
  • For light fertilizer (Scotts fertilizers at a regular rate) use setting 3
  • For heavy fertilizer (Scotts fertilizers at a heavy setting) use setting 4
  • For pelletized fertilizer and ice melt products use setting 5

Republic EZ broadcast spreader...what number to use when lining up the mark to calibrate the spreader...lost the instruction book


Hello, to solve your question about what number to use to calibrate your broadcast spreader, please use the step-by-step instructions below:

1. If you don't already know the square footage of your lawn, please walk off or measure, multiplying the length by width. For example, my lawn is 100 ft wide by 100 ft long; this equals 10,000 sq. ft.
2. Use this figure (30,000 sq ft) to determine how much fertilizer, insecticide, fungicide,apply etc., to purchase and apply.
3. To calibrate the spreader for applying your product at the correct rate, first weigh and hold out an amount of product to cover a pre-determined test area; for example, enough for a 200 sq ft space.
4. Because most lawn fertilizers are packaged to cover areas in 1000 sq ft increments, it's easy to figure how many 1,000 sq ft applications you need for your lawn.
5. Set your spreader to 3 and measure 1/5 of the recommended application on your product, to cover a 200 sq ft area.
6. Use your spreader to cover this 200 sq ft area.
7. If there is product remaining in the hopper after walking this 200 sq ft area, increase the setting number and move to another test area, repeat steps 5 and 6.
8. If there wasn't enough product to cover the test area, back the number down, move to another test area, and repeat steps 5 and 6, until you finish with product and lawn test area at the same time.
9. Remember to never leave product in your hopper because many chemicals are corrosive and can destroy the moving parts, making the spreader inoperable.

I hope this helps!

What would be the setting to cover 4 pounds of product per 1,000 square feet? Scotts Drop Spreader PF4 Precision Green.


Unfortunately, because granular products come in many different particle s and densities, there is no way to determine a universal pounds per thousand spreader setting. The only solution would be to do a 50 foot by 20 foot test. The 50 by 20 rule will allow you to determine an appropriate pounds per thousand rate for any product in anyspreader, but there is some work that will need to be done. *Weigh out and Place enough material in the hopper to cover 1,000 sq. ft. (Inyour case 4 pounds) *Place the spreader setting on a low setting about 1/4 of the way open. * Apply the 4 pounds of material over a 50 x 20 ft. area (This is 1,000 sq. ft.). *If material is left over, you are underapplying, and will need to increase the setting accordingly; before applying to the remainder of the lawn *If you come up short, you are over applying and you will need to decrease the setting; before applying to the remainder of the lawn

I need spreader setting to do 2.3 pounds per 1000 sq ft


If the product you are planning on applying has a spreader setting for a Scotts SpeedyGreen, or specifically for the SpeedyGreen 3000; you can that recommendation in your Edgeguard Deluxe Spreader. If they do not have a suggested spreader setting for the SpeedyGreen, or SpeedyGreen 3000 settings then this question would best be answered by calling Scotts directly @ 1-800-543-8873. One of our associates would be happy to assist you further.


We do have a general rule, called the 50 by 20 rule which will allow you to use any product in any spreader, but there is some work that will need to be done.

* Weigh out and Place enough material in the hopper to cover 1,000 sq. ft. (In your case 2.3 pounds)


* Place the spreader setting on a low setting (Usually one-fourth of the spreader setting range or less. In your case i would suggest about 2.75 or 3)


* Spread the material over a 50 x 20 ft. area (This is 1,000 sq. ft.).


* If material is left over, you will need to increase the setting accordingly


* If they you up short, you will need to decrease the setting.

first 40lbs per 2k of lime will do nothing, rate to chemnge ph 1 point is 50lbs per 500k which would be all the way open slow walk. for your application you should be about half to 3/4 open normal walk

What setting do I use on the Scotts Mini Spreader?


Here is the rule of thumb to determine your spreader setting.

Place enough material in the hopper to cover 1,000 sq. ft. (Usually indicated on the bag of product, if not indicated, take pounds in bag and divide by the number of thousand square feet bag covers. Example: 23lb bag covers 5,000 sq ft, divide 23 by 5 to get 4.6lbs per 1,000 sq ft).

* Place the spreader setting on a low setting (Usually one-fourth of the spreader setting range or less).

* Spread the material over a 50 x 20 ft. area (This is 1,000 sq. ft.).

* If material is left over, they need to increase the setting.

* If they come up short, they need to decrease the setting.

* While this is not a scientific method for getting the spreader setting, it will be close.
