SOURCE: Spreader Settings

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

SOURCE: Please tell me how to set my Scotts Accugreen 2000

I emailed the nursery that sold me the two products that I wanted to apply: Luscious Lawn and Garden and Luscious Lawn Corn Gluten. The owner emailed right back, telling me to use the highest setting because these products have large particles. Anyway, they are organic products, and an overdose will not burn my grass. Thank you.

SOURCE: I have a Scotts Accugreen 3000 Drop Spreader. How

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 :)

SOURCE: I have a Scotts Speedy

I have the same question, but have not found a direct answer. I have calculated an estimate setting of 4 or 5 for the speedygreen 2000. The Milky Spore is very simular to the fertilizer that I use. Milky spore says that 1lb covers a little over 300 square feet. My fertilizer says that at a setting of 4 it is spreading 2.6 lb per 1000 square feet (almost 3 lb per 1000 sq ft or 1 lb per 333 sq ft).
Now I may be totally off, but just bought the Milky Spore today and will apply tomorrow. I may look some more tonight to see if I can find an answer. I felt it was kind of bad that the back of the Milky Spore suggested only using a drop spreader!?

I have a new Scotts Classic Drop spreader and an old bag of 16-4-8 fertilizer. 2,130 SF of Zoysia Zeon lawn. According to my guidance I need to spread 6.5 # of the 16-4-8 fertilizer over the entire area....


Does the product you are using list any Scotts AccuGreen spreader settings? If so, you can safely use the spreader settings listed for the Scotts AccuGreen. If your product does not list any spreader settings, please give Scotts a call at 866-465-5160.

I have a Scotts Turf Builder EdgeGuard Mini, and I'm using Ace turf builder (crabgrass preventer with fertilizer). What setting should I use???


I was just told by Scott's phone customer service (800-543-8873) that their TurfBuilder EdgeGuard mini can use the same settings as their "SpeedyGreen" broadcast spreader, if your fertilizer lists that one.

Need to know the setting to put out Stagreen's crabex crabgrass preventer


If the product you are planning on applying has a spreader setting for a Scotts SpeedyGreen, or specifically for the SpeedyGreen 3000; you can that recommendation in your Edgeguard Deluxe Spreader. If they do not have a suggested spreader setting for the SpeedyGreen, or SpeedyGreen 3000 settings then this question would best be answered by calling Scotts directly @ 1-800-543-8873. One of our associates would be happy to assist you further.

What would be the setting to cover 4 pounds of product per 1,000 square feet? Scotts Drop Spreader PF4 Precision Green.


Unfortunately, because granular products come in many different particle s and densities, there is no way to determine a universal pounds per thousand spreader setting. The only solution would be to do a 50 foot by 20 foot test. The 50 by 20 rule will allow you to determine an appropriate pounds per thousand rate for any product in anyspreader, but there is some work that will need to be done. *Weigh out and Place enough material in the hopper to cover 1,000 sq. ft. (Inyour case 4 pounds) *Place the spreader setting on a low setting about 1/4 of the way open. * Apply the 4 pounds of material over a 50 x 20 ft. area (This is 1,000 sq. ft.). *If material is left over, you are underapplying, and will need to increase the setting accordingly; before applying to the remainder of the lawn *If you come up short, you are over applying and you will need to decrease the setting; before applying to the remainder of the lawn

I borrowed an older craftsman walk behind lawn spreader from my neighbor to apply Ace 5M crabgrass preventer. There is no model number on the spreader. It has settings from 2 to 16. What do these settings...


Well, they represent the size of the opening through which the product falls before hitting the spinning spreader part. A larger opening allows more product though; a smaller opening allows less.

I don't know if these are standardized across makes (I don't think they are). The best thing you could do would be to look in the hardware section next time you're in town and set a display model to the setting called for by your product (Scotts always lists the settings for their spreaders on their product), and then eyeball the size opening you get, then approximate that on your machine when you return home.

Or you can just pick the middle setting and do a test run and see if you think more or less should be applied, then adjust accordingly.

Model 300 runs out of fertilizer


Since I didn't have a manul, I downloaded one from Scott's and used that to calibrate the spreader which was out of calibration.
