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.

SOURCE: Republic EZ broadcast spreader...what number to

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!

I have an Ortho Whirlybird seed spreader. What setting to use for spreading 3 lb/1000 ft of Prozon Weed Beater?

I too have been going crazy trying to find instructions for this seed spreader. Go to Ortho Products online and select chat. Tell the agent the UPC code for it, which is: 71549-08450. They can then email you the one-page instruction sheet for it. Otherwise try this site where I uploaded it:

I think the spreader I have is from Agri-Fab - It is an 85lb PreciseFit Broadcast Spreader, and I was hoping to get a cross-reference with a Scotts spreader for the settings (which all seed/fertilizer/lime...

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:

I trust this information has proven useful.

Spreader how to Maintenance

The professionals usually say that, after using a spreader, a thorough dry cleaning beats a sloppy wet cleaning any day. It's certainly a good idea to empty your spreader completely and shake out or remove with a brush any remaining material. Keeping moving parts lubricated helps too.
