Need a setting for Scott's Speedy Green EdgeGuard mini


First, I went to the products website, in this case Lesco and looked up the spreader settings:
https://www.johndeerelandscapes.com/home/spreader-settings.aspx

Then, I went to Scotts website and looked up spreader settings:
http://www.scotts.com/smg/node2/SCOTTSCOM/lawn-care/lookup-spreader-settings/7800015-24900013-s

I cross referenced a product on the Scotts website that uses the same settings as one of those listed on the Lesco website and I found my settings that way.

In my case I was using Lesco Pre-M 0.86% 0-0-7 and wanted to apply 5.3 lbs/1000ft. My spreader was a Scotts Turf Builder EdgeGuard Mini with settings from 0-15. I found out by cross referencing that the Scotts Speedy Green 1000 and my spreader used the same settings. So I ended up using the recommended setting of 5.5, as listed on the Lesco website for the Scotts Speedy Green 1000, to apply 5.3 lbs/1000ft of pre emergent using my Scotts EdgeGuard Mini.

Hope this helps!

The little door on the hopper of my Scotts Speedy Green 1000 spreader does not close when I release the contol handle. Is there a spring that has come off and can a replacement part be purchased? Dennis


Hi Dennis. I don't think there are any after market parts for Scotts spreaders. I do recall a wire and a spring on one type of Scotts spreader. There was an eyelet hole just off center that the wire and spring attached to. You could probably rig something up pretty easy. Would be a matter of locating a spring and wire.

Before you get to deep into this... flip it over and look for dried / caked fertilizer on next to thehinge area. I have seen this stop spreader application doors from closing often.

You can ask Scotts here:

Scott speedy green 1000 spreader The spring at the bottom fell off. How do I put it back?


The spring on the Speedy Green 1000 is more of a plastic bow piece. The accordion shaped piece should run through the "bridge" that is riveted to the hopper and then the bow piece fits into it. It is possible that the plastic bow may have worn out and may need to be replaced. You should give Scotts a call @ 1-800-543-8873 and see if we have a replacement available for you.

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%.

Good luck
