    I lost my manual also, and needed to calibrate my spreader. I called the Scotts service help line at 888-270-3714 and got direct assistance from an operator (on a Sunday!). They did not have manuals available online. However, they can usually answer your question. The operator read the calibration instructions to me over the phone. Good luck!

I have a Scotts speedy green 3000. Got it $5 used. I just called Scotts, and they are sending me a manual. But, they told me how to calibrate it. First, you need to know if you have the same "version" as I do. Apparently they made the same model more than one way. I'm told I have a newer one. The way the Scotts rep differentiated was by the wheels. I have all black wheels with orange hubcaps. Older models have orange wheels. If you have the model I have, then do this to calibrate the spreader:

1. On the black slide that comes up when the handle is pulled to open the spreader and releasing product you will find a curved line about 1/2 and inch from the top.

2. Set the spreader to a setting of 2 on the handle.

3. When you pull the lever as if you were releasing product, the indented black line should line up with the curved part of the green hopper at the top of the opening.

4. If it does not align, then you need to adjust the cable that run from the handle down to the hopper door. This is done using pliers of wrench by turning the square nut at the bottom of the cable. It's trial and error at this point.

Mine was off by 30%.

Good luck

Need a setting for Scott's Speedy Green EdgeGuard mini


First, I went to the products website, in this case Lesco and looked up the spreader settings:
https://www.johndeerelandscapes.com/home/spreader-settings.aspx

Then, I went to Scotts website and looked up spreader settings:
http://www.scotts.com/smg/node2/SCOTTSCOM/lawn-care/lookup-spreader-settings/7800015-24900013-s

I cross referenced a product on the Scotts website that uses the same settings as one of those listed on the Lesco website and I found my settings that way.

In my case I was using Lesco Pre-M 0.86% 0-0-7 and wanted to apply 5.3 lbs/1000ft. My spreader was a Scotts Turf Builder EdgeGuard Mini with settings from 0-15. I found out by cross referencing that the Scotts Speedy Green 1000 and my spreader used the same settings. So I ended up using the recommended setting of 5.5, as listed on the Lesco website for the Scotts Speedy Green 1000, to apply 5.3 lbs/1000ft of pre emergent using my Scotts EdgeGuard Mini.

Hope this helps!

How do i calibrate my scotts speedy green 3000 broadcast spreader?


From the OEM Scotts SpeedyGreen 3000 Broadcast Spreader Owners Manual: Calibration Your SpeedyGreen 3000 spreader was calibrated at the factory. You may check the calibration as follows: 1.) Adjust the micrometer setting to 2. 2.) Squeeze the trigger against the handle. 3.) The Calibration line engraved in the Green casing above the top of the shut-off plate should be flush with the back edge of the hopper opening. 4.) To adjust alignment, use a small wrench to turn the black calibration screw at the lower end of the control wire leading from the micrometer rate setting barrel.
