SOURCE: I need spreader setting to do 2.3 pounds per 1000

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.

I have a scots edge guard spreader and need to put on weed and feed at 4 lbs per 1000 sq feet what setting on spreader should I use


Hi Mike:
The setting will depend on the size of the weed & Feed pellets.
The package usually has setting instructions on it.

If all else fails, the rate is 1 lb per 250 square feet.
Mark out an area about 10 ft by 25 ft long.
The spreader cast is about 5 ft, so down and back should use 1 lb.
Set the spreader at a minimal rate and see how far 1 lb goes, then adjust the setting accordingly.

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?

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!

I have a Scotts Speedy Green 2000 rotary spreader and want to know the proper setting for your Milky Spore 20 lb. bag (granular carrier). I have been keeping it about 50% open (Setting # 9 to 9.5) but it...


I have the same question, but have not found a direct answer. I have calculated an estimate setting of 4 or 5 for the speedygreen 2000. The Milky Spore is very simular to the fertilizer that I use. Milky spore says that 1lb covers a little over 300 square feet. My fertilizer says that at a setting of 4 it is spreading 2.6 lb per 1000 square feet (almost 3 lb per 1000 sq ft or 1 lb per 333 sq ft).
Now I may be totally off, but just bought the Milky Spore today and will apply tomorrow. I may look some more tonight to see if I can find an answer. I felt it was kind of bad that the back of the Milky Spore suggested only using a drop spreader!?

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.
