Need to know setting on this broadcast spreader

I have a Frank's Nursery LongLife Broadcast Spreader & don't know what setting I should use for fertlizing my lawn. Do you have a chart that would allow me to determine what setting I should be using for various fertlizer products?

SOURCE: lost agitater for my Scotts Spreader

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.

How do you check to see if calibration is exact

Usually the cheaper residential grade spreaders are not exact, nor do they need to be. The best way to tell how close it is, is to measure the area to be fertilized length and width. Multiply the two numbers (example: 30' x 40' = 1,200sq ft.) Adjust the spreader according to the reccomendations on the bag, and follow the directions exactly! Walk at a brisk pace around the perimeter once, and then back and forth spaceing your passes about 5' for rotory spreaders. Compare the amount of product you used, to the coverage chart on the bag. In my experience, most all lawn fertilizers are best spread at 50% to 60% open on your spreader setting adjuster. (example: If your spreader has settings of 1-15, I'd go with 8) Always follow the directions on the product container as best you can. Spreading a little too heavy, or a little too light is not going to hurt anything, so there is no reason to be concerned with exact calibration unless you are applying discriminative herbicides... Hope this helps!

I purchased my "Pro" edgeguard

The Scotts Pro Edgeguard Spreader is calibrated at the factory. This spreader cannot be calibrated, and shouldn't need to be. For further assistance, call Scotts at 877-465-5160

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!
