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,

Yes, lime can be applied in the in the Scotts DLX spreader. for a 50# per 1000 square foot application rate it is suggested to use a spreader setting on 7 on you model, and to walk over the same area three times. If you have any further questions feel free to contact Scotts @ 1-800-543-8873

SOURCE: IS there a place that lists spreader settings for

If the product you are planning on applying has a spreader setting for a Scotts AccuGreen, or  specifically for the AccuGreen 3000; you can use that recommendation in your Turf Builder Classic Drop Spreader.  If they do not have a suggested spreader setting for the Accugreen, or  Accugreen 3000 settings then this question would best be answered by calling Scotts directly @ 1-800-543-8873. One of our associates would be happy to assist you further.

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.

I have a scots edge guard spreader and need to put on weed and feed at 4 lbs per 1000 sq feet what setting on spreader should I use


Hi Mike:
The setting will depend on the size of the weed & Feed pellets.
The package usually has setting instructions on it.

If all else fails, the rate is 1 lb per 250 square feet.
Mark out an area about 10 ft by 25 ft long.
The spreader cast is about 5 ft, so down and back should use 1 lb.
Set the spreader at a minimal rate and see how far 1 lb goes, then adjust the setting accordingly.

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!

I have lost my instructions for my hand held spreader. The numbers on the side that control the outlet of whatever is in the spreader--do these indicate the number of pounds per 100 sq. ft?


Below is a list of spreader settings. You may want to call Scotts at 800-543-8873 and verify the product you are using is able to be used in a hand held spreader.
  • For fine grass seed (blue, rye, fescue) use setting 1
  • For coarser seed (tall fescue) use setting 2
  • For light fertilizer (Scotts fertilizers at a regular rate) use setting 3
  • For heavy fertilizer (Scotts fertilizers at a heavy setting) use setting 4
  • For pelletized fertilizer and ice melt products use setting 5

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.

How to use Ace Green Turf Spreader


At the bottom of the spreader hopper is a gate, there should be a setting lock that allows the opening to move only so far. This may be at the handle controls but unlikely.
To be sure of your spreader pattern and rate, use the spreader on a parking lot to see the pattern, you can always sweep up the granules and reuse them! Walking speed is the biggest factor in spreading rates.... Opening is the next....

How to use Spreaders


Follow the specific spreading instructions that come with your spreader. When working with spreaders, always load a spreader on a surface where an accidental spill can be cleaned up and won't matter (driveway, walkway, etc). Common practice is to first run the spreader around the periphery of the area you are treating; this ensures a consistent application around the edge of your lawn. Next, you run the spreader back and forth within the area bounded by your first perimeter run. Always allow on overlap to avoid missed streaks or "holidays". Ideally, apply your material at half the recommended rate and make two sets of runs, first back and forth in one direction, then again another set of runs at 90 degrees to the first set. This ensures a good consistent coverage and it compensates for any uneven patches.
