Use the offset, it is scribed that way so you can better read the number --- you should be able to google up a torque wrench site to verify this

I have a accugreen 1000. The wire for the settings has gone slack and I can't adjust the settings. It just stays open. How do I fix this.


You can try to calibrate the spreader, tightening the screw at the end of the control wire should fix the situation. If calibrating the spreader does not help please call us at 800-543-8873 for more assistance. To Calibrate the Accugreen 1000: 1. Adjust the micrometer setting to a 6. 2. Flip the spreader over. 3. Use your foot to squeeze the trigger against the handle. 4. The front edge of the shutoff bar should be aligned with the calibration line engraved on the bottom of the hopper. 5. 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 insect.

I've got a Draper 30357 torque wrench. It says in the instructions that the micrometer should only be turned clockwise. But the wrench needs to be de-torqued when not in use which requires turning it...


Had a look at the manual. From what I can see you turn the handle until the zero lines up with the main divisions and then turn the handle for any additional increments to set the final reading.To do this you have to pick the main reading lower than your intended setting and work upwards by adding increments on the handle by turning it clockwise. You could do this by picking the reading above your intended setting and turn the handle anti-clockwise to reduce the reading but you could make a mistake doing the subtraction. I think this is what they are trying to get across. In any case the handle has to be turned anti-clockwise if you are using the wrench to tighten a nut with a lower torque setting.

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 Scotts Accugreen 2000 for pounds of Fertilizer per Sqft. What do setting equal?


To adjust calibration, do the following:

1) Adjust the micrometer setting to 6.

2) Turn the spreader over.

3) Squeeze the trigger against the handle.

4) The front edge of the shutoff bar should be aligned with the calibration line engraved on the bottom of the hopper.

5) 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 insert.

Note: If the hopper is missing a calibration line - with the setting at 6 they should be able to pass a 9/64" drill bit through the opening just to the right of center. (First opening to the right of the spring.)

Door Handle Loose and tightening with allen wrench does NOT work ...


Just did this on mine today. Use an allen wrench to back off both the upper and lower set screws (Note: you do not need to back them all the way out). The handle will then easily pull away from the door. With a 1/4" socket, tighten the screws holding the upper and lower lugs on the door. Place the handle back on and tighten the upper and lower set screws.
