Question about Scotts Lawn 73740 SPDY GREEN 3000 B/C S 3 EA 13610498
From the OEM Scotts SpeedyGreen 3000 Broadcast Spreader Owners Manual: Calibration Your SpeedyGreen 3000 spreader was calibrated at the factory. You may check the calibration as follows: 1.) Adjust the micrometer setting to 2. 2.) Squeeze the trigger against the handle. 3.) The Calibration line engraved in the Green casing above the top of the shut-off plate should be flush with the back edge of the hopper opening. 4.) 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 rate setting barrel.

SOURCE: lost manual
I have a Scotts speedy green 3000. Got it $5
used. I just called Scotts, and they are sending me a manual. But, they told me
how to calibrate it. First, you need to know if you have the same
"version" as I do. Apparently they made the same model more than one way.
I'm told I have a newer one. The way the Scotts rep differentiated was by the
wheels. I have all black wheels with orange hubcaps. Older models have orange
wheels. If you have the model I have, then do this to calibrate the spreader:
1. On the black slide that comes up when the handle is pulled to open the spreader and releasing product you will find a curved line about 1/2 and inch from the top.
2. Set the spreader to a setting of 2 on the handle.
3. When you pull the lever as if you were releasing product, the indented black line should line up with the curved part of the green hopper at the top of the opening.
4. If it does not align, then you need to adjust the cable that run from the handle down to the hopper door. This is done using pliers of wrench by turning the square nut at the bottom of the cable. It's trial and error at this point.
Mine was off by 30%.

I replaced mine with a clip-in cotter key, the kind they use for farm implements to keep a pin in place. I bought a stainless steel one at Lowe's for ~$1. Works at least as good as what I had.

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 :)

Simple. Assume they are shipped to store properly calibrated. (Probable).
Go to store, set a unit on 8 (Mid-range).
Use a small straight-edge ruler to measure the travel from cosed to open.
Go home, set yours the same, using the attqachment of the wire to the slide mechanism. (If you can't figure this out, you should just buy a new one.)
