Stone is approximated at about 2700 lbs. per cu. yd.

An acre is 43560 sq. ft.

8.5 acres is 370260 sq. ft.

There 9 sq.ft. per sq. yd., thus there are 41140 sq. yds. in 8.5 acres.

A cubic yard is 3 feet by 3 feet by 3 feet (LxWxH).

Since you are only going to be at 1.5 feet, each square yard is equal to 1/2 cubic yard, so to figure the cubic yards divide sq.yds. by 2, thus you get 20570 cu. yds. of stone.

20570 x 2700 = 55539000 pounds. Divide by 2000 to get tons:

55539000/2000 = 27769.5 tons.

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.

These are not the same, so cannot be directly converted.

Pounds per sq ft is a measure of pressure, while lbs / cu ft is a measure of density, weight per unit volume.

I think maybe what you are doing here is converting the weight of concrete in a 1" slab, where a sq ft would contain

1 x 1 x 1/12 = .0833 cu ft

The figure of 150 lb/ cu ft is correct for the average density of concrete, so the above slab would have

1/12 x 150 = 12.5 lbs/sq ft at 1" thickness

BTW that is a thin slab of concrete, insufficient even for a light-duty pathway. If you are referring to a screed for tiling or similar, that is cement.

AC is approx. 145 lbs per cubic ft.

there are 27 cubic ft in 1 cubic yard

60 tons x 2000 = 120000 divided by 145 = 827.58 cubic ft divided by 27 = 30.65 cubic yards

square yards would depend on thickness of AC.

you can take thickness x sq ft to get cubic ft

in concrete 1 cubic yard =

4 inch thickness = 81 sq ft or 9 sq yrds

6 inch thickness = 54 sq ft or 6 sq yards

there are 27 cubic ft in 1 cubic yard

60 tons x 2000 = 120000 divided by 145 = 827.58 cubic ft divided by 27 = 30.65 cubic yards

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?

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!

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
