SOURCE: Drop and Broadcast Spreaders comparison

There are two common types of lawn spreader: drop or broadcast. The drop spreader is a familiar sight at garden centers and hardware stores. If you are a homeowner with less than 5,000 sq.ft. of lawn area, an inexpensive drop spreader may be all you need. Drop spreaders tend to be more manueverable in tight, awkward spaces and are relatively easy to use. Broadcast spreaders throw the material out in a wider swath, sometimes as wide as 8'. If you have a large area to cover, they can make short work of it. They are, however, a little trickier to use, since you need to keep up a steady walking speed (usually 3 mph) and you need to be moving when you activate the spreader. It's also harder to get a clean edge, although some broadcast spreaders come with side deflectors, which let you get close to side-walks, beds and driveways without spreading material on these adjacent areas. There are also small, hand-held broadcast spreaders suitable for smaller areas.

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!

Hello Assaidca,

I suspect it is about the same as any other comparable spreader. These things really are not calibrated to any universal standard.

You can download manuals directly from the Agrifab website however by clicking on the provided link and looking for your specific model number under the spreaders link:
Downloadable Manuals

I trust this information has proven useful.

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!

How do i calibrate my speedygreen 2000 broadcast spreader


You may check the calibration by using the following directions. First, adjust your micrometer setting to 2. Squeeze the trigger against the handle. The calibration line is a small, raised line embossed on the top of the spreader's shut-off plate. With the micrometer set at 2 and the trigger squeezed against the handle, the calibration line should be aligned with the back edge of the hopper opening.

To adjust the 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. Adjust the screw until the calibration line and back edge of the hopper meet. If you have any difficulty checking the calibration, contact us and we will be happy to help walk you through the adjustment.

When you are not pulling on the trigger handle, the cable should be loose. When you pull on the handle, the cable becomes taut and the shutoff plate slides open.

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.
