Repair parts for a Republic EZ Broadcast Fertilizer Spreader

I have a Republic fertilizer spreader that you walk behind and it sprays the fertilizer pellets.

The problem is that it is dependent on both wheels need to rotate properly and turn the dispensing flywheel.

The clamp is broken on one of the wheels that leads to the flywheel. It is secured to the wheel axle with a couple of plastic rivets.

Where can I get a new clamp ?

Thanks for any assistance

Bill

    I have the same problem here with my EZ Broadcast Spreader. The handle just broke yet
    rest of the unit is in near perfect condition. Trying to locate replacement part. I believe in
    re-using not re-purchasing when you have a good product. Juanita

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.

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!

I have a Republic EZ drop fertilizer spreader. The gray plastic device (2 pieces, one screwed inside the other) up by the push handle that rotates to widen or narrow the slot at the bottom of the fertilizer storage bin when the handle is squeezed is broken. The cable connecting the device to the movable part of the slot is OK. The gray plastic has numbers on it that show through a small square opening in the gray plastic closest to the push handle. Where can I get a replacement part?

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.
