If the wheels turn( that is you can push the spreader easily) but the vertical shaft that spins the broadcasting plate doesn't, seems like the gears connecting the axle to that vertical shaft are worn; but if the wheels just slide along the gropund without turning then it would seem something right under the bin is keeping the verical shaft from turning.

I called Scotts, and according to them the Edgeguard Deluxe uses the same settings as the SpeedyGreen 3000.

I found drop-rate tables at http://www.vigoro.com/ProductCategories/WeedInsectControl/SummerFertilizer/ProductDetails/Spreader+Settings.htm and http://www.bayeradvanced.com/media/productlabel/502840A_label.pdf. I don't know how accurate they are, but they are consistent with one another so I'm using them :)

There is no correlation between the letters on your C2 to the numbers that are now used on newer spreader models. Your best bet is to do your own test. Measure a 50 x 20 foot area in your lawn. Place enough material in your hopper to cover 1000 sq ft. Set your spreader setting on a ¼ of your spreader setting range. Spread the material over the 50 x 20 foot area. If you have product left over you increase your spreader setting. If you come up short you decrease your spreader setting. While this is not exact it will give you the ballpark setting

My scotts rotory spreader will not spin


The design is quite simple with one wheel driving a bevel gear in a gear box. If the wheel turns the axle shaft and the center pin in the spreader with the retainer/cotter pin does not turn it is likely something has failed in the gear box.

If both wheel spins and the axle does not turn than the drive wheel has disengaged the axle shaft and the cotter pin in the drive wheel needs to be replaced.

The compounds used in the spreaders are corrosive. Usually the gears and axle become bound due to corrosion. By oiling the bearings and wiggling the wheels they will free up,

That model is a little over 45 years old, gotta love those metal spreaders! Many times the new Drop spreader settings will work for the older models as well, you just have to make sure it looks like its dropping at the right rate. That can be a little troublesome, but if you can estimate about 1/4 of the bag and cover the proper area for that amount you should be good to go. You can always give us a call and confirm settings with us first at 1-800-543-8873. Stacey at Scotts

I have a Scotts dropspreader model 35-3 and I would like to know if there should be cotter pins on both sides of both wheels. My spreader has pins on both sides of one wheel. The other has only one on the...


It's correct as it is. Only one wheel is used to drive the auger. The other wheel is free to rotate without turning the auger. If both wheels were connected to the auger, the spreader would be much harder to turn at the end of the row. You will notice when you make a sharp turn in one direction the auger can remain still and the outer wheel turns easily. If you make a sharp turn in the other direction, then it is harder to turn because the auger is turning. You can make this work to your advantage if you have a large yard. The reason there are unused holes in the free wheel is because it is easier in manufacturing that both wheels are the same and only the assembly is different. Good luck, I hope you found this helpful. Al K

I have a 35-3 spreader and cannot find the setting rate to apply 3.5# of product to 1000 sq ft


I have a Scotts calibration bar which I used according to their instructions and the unit (a 35-3) still does not perform correctly. Therefor I used a tried-and-true method to make my own calibration.

1) get a large tarpaulin, the bigger the better. Lay it on a flat surface, as level as possible. Measure the tarp to determine the area.

2) Pick a setting. I would suggest starting with "5". Load up your spreader and go back and forth over the tarp as though it were your grass.

3) Dump what you have collected on the tarp into a container and weigh it.

4) Perform high school arithmetic operations to determine the pounds per square foot delivered and adjust accordingly. Obviously, different products will perform differently and this will have to be done for each different product.

5) Down at these low numbers it doesn't take much change in setting to make a big change in the delivery rate. The Scotts representative also noted that the speed at which you walk can affect the rate. As you walk more slowly the spreader will deliver more product.
