Question about Garden
My Ez broadcast spreader is in "ok" condition except that the agitator broke and I need to find a replacement part. Since Republic no longer makes this spreader, does anyone have any recommendations

I replaced mine with a clip-in cotter key, the kind they use for farm implements to keep a pin in place. I bought a stainless steel one at Lowe's for ~$1. Works at least as good as what I had.

I have a problem with a broken handle it looks like there is no parts for the EZ Broadcast Spreader. The sad part is the rest of the unit is in great condition.
Looks like plan obsolescent!

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!

I am sorry for the problems you are experiencing with your EZ Spreader. Unfortunately, due to the age of the spreader, we no longer have replacement parts available. Please give Scotts a call at 800-543-8873 so we can help pick out a new spreader for you. Hilary @ Scotts
