My scotts rotory spreader will not spin


The design is quite simple with one wheel driving a bevel gear in a gear box. If the wheel turns the axle shaft and the center pin in the spreader with the retainer/cotter pin does not turn it is likely something has failed in the gear box.

If both wheel spins and the axle does not turn than the drive wheel has disengaged the axle shaft and the cotter pin in the drive wheel needs to be replaced.

The compounds used in the spreaders are corrosive. Usually the gears and axle become bound due to corrosion. By oiling the bearings and wiggling the wheels they will free up,

Clutch for johndeere 870


That is normal for a live pto. If your tractor has a two stage clutch you should be able to stop the PTO with clutch all the way in (as in push the pedal all the way down). It should be transmission independant, meaning it will work even though the transmission is not turning AND if you are running something that has a lot of inertia, it won't push you around by driving the rear wheels even though you have the clutch in.

Conversion Tables---- I have an Earthway broadcast spreader--need to know if there is a chart that converts Scott's settings located on the back of all Scott's fertilizer bags to Earth way settings?


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 Scott Rotary Fertilizer Spreader. When I load up the bucket and move the spreader, the fertilizer on the rotor does not spread because rotor does not move


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,
