Question about Earthway 2050su Broadcast Spreader

1 Answer

I have a Scott's rotary spreader that I use to spread Scott's Turfbuilder Plus 2 on the lawn. The problem is that the material collects on the rim of the wheels, and then dispenses in tracks on the lawn, that then turn brown, due to the over-accumulation of material that is dispensed in the lines of the wheels. How can this problem be avoided ? ( Spray WD40 on the inner rim of the wheels ?? )

It sounds to me like your grass is wet when you're applying, which is what the label calls for if you're trying to kill weeds. But is this wet grass maybe TOO TALL when you're pushing the spreader through it?
Next time, try mowing the lawn, then waiting 1-2 days before applying Turfbuilder Plus 2.
If anything were to work as anti-stick agent on the wheels, it would be Pam spray from your kitchen cupboard. Spray, let sit a while, then buff dry.

What is the spreader setting for 2.8 lbs per 1000 feet?


Hi Tom:
It will depend on the size of the particles being spread.
Usually the package that the material comes in will have a table showing the settings.
Some of the fertilizers that have oyster shell can obstruct the opening and prevent the gate from closing. Gotta watch that.
You could also google the make of your spreader for information.
Here's a link to sites for Scott Spreaders.

Hope it helps

I just bought a new Scott's "Classic Drop" Spreader. I owned a Scott's drop spreader before and the recommended settings on Scott's fertilizer bags always worked great. On...


I am sorry that neither spreader performed as they should have. This is very concerning to us, and we would like to get more information about the spreaders, if you still have 1 the manufacture date would be most helpful to us. It sounds like you could possibly have an over-application of the product as well. If you could call us at 1-800-543-8873, we would be happy to discuss this with you. Stacey at Scotts.

How do i calibrate the spreader


Your AccuGreen 3000 Drop Spreader was calibrated at the factory. However, a spreader's calibration may change or slip over time or during periods of heavy use.

You may check the calibration of your Scotts Accugreen 3000 by first adjusting your micrometer setting to 6. Turn the spreader over so that you are looking at the outside of the bottom of the hopper. Use your foot to hold down the trigger (if your trigger has a locking mechanism you can lock it in place prior to turning upside down). With the micrometer set at 6 and the trigger squeezed against the handle, the front edge of the projecting ridge on the shut-off bar should be aligned with the calibration line located on the 2nd or 3rd tooth from the center. Some of the older AccuGreen 3000 Drop Spreader spreader models do not have a raised ridge. On these spreaders, line the front edge of the shut off bar to the calibration line.

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 raised ridge or front edge of the shut-off bar meet. If you have any difficulty checking or adjusting the calibration, contact us and we will be happy to help walk you through the adjustment.

Again, thank you for taking the time to contact us and for your interest in Scotts. Please feel free to call us at 1(800)5438873 anytime we may be of assistance.

I have a Scotts Rotary Spreader model C2.\r\nIt has letters of the alphabet, can u send me the relationship to the numbers . Rich Jewell


There is no correlation between the letters on your C2 to the numbers that are now used on newer spreader models. Your best bet is to do your own test. Measure a 50 x 20 foot area in your lawn. Place enough material in your hopper to cover 1000 sq ft. Set your spreader setting on a ¼ of your spreader setting range. Spread the material over the 50 x 20 foot area. If you have product left over you increase your spreader setting. If you come up short you decrease your spreader setting. While this is not exact it will give you the ballpark setting

I have an old Jackson 36HSS-26 lawn spreader. What setting should I use for various materials? I am about to spread some Scotts Turf Builder with Plus 2 weed control.


It should say on the back of the box or give some indication as to the settings but in general you can gague it from the flow rate and or the granual size but a rough setting is about 5 to 6
