If the wheels turn( that is you can push the spreader easily) but the vertical shaft that spins the broadcasting plate doesn't, seems like the gears connecting the axle to that vertical shaft are worn; but if the wheels just slide along the gropund without turning then it would seem something right under the bin is keeping the verical shaft from turning. But I'm NOT an expert; I'm looking for an answer myself,

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 :)

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 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.

I have an antique scotts metal drop speader # 35-3. Probably at least 30+ years old. The setting bar goes from 2 to 18. Scotts fertilizer products use different setting numbers that correspond to newer...


That model is a little over 45 years old, gotta love those metal spreaders! Many times the new Drop spreader settings will work for the older models as well, you just have to make sure it looks like its dropping at the right rate. That can be a little troublesome, but if you can estimate about 1/4 of the bag and cover the proper area for that amount you should be good to go. You can always give us a call and confirm settings with us first at 1-800-543-8873. Stacey at Scotts

I have a 35-3 spreader and cannot find the setting rate to apply 3.5# of product to 1000 sq ft


I have a Scotts calibration bar which I used according to their instructions and the unit (a 35-3) still does not perform correctly. Therefor I used a tried-and-true method to make my own calibration.

1) get a large tarpaulin, the bigger the better. Lay it on a flat surface, as level as possible. Measure the tarp to determine the area.

2) Pick a setting. I would suggest starting with "5". Load up your spreader and go back and forth over the tarp as though it were your grass.

3) Dump what you have collected on the tarp into a container and weigh it.

4) Perform high school arithmetic operations to determine the pounds per square foot delivered and adjust accordingly. Obviously, different products will perform differently and this will have to be done for each different product.

5) Down at these low numbers it doesn't take much change in setting to make a big change in the delivery rate. The Scotts representative also noted that the speed at which you walk can affect the rate. As you walk more slowly the spreader will deliver more product.

How do I calibrate Scotts Accugreen 2000 for pounds of Fertilizer per Sqft. What do setting equal?


To adjust calibration, do the following:

1) Adjust the micrometer setting to 6.

2) Turn the spreader over.

3) Squeeze the trigger against the handle.

4) The front edge of the shutoff bar should be aligned with the calibration line engraved on the bottom of the hopper.

5) 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 insert.

Note: If the hopper is missing a calibration line - with the setting at 6 they should be able to pass a 9/64" drill bit through the opening just to the right of center. (First opening to the right of the spring.)

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.
