Question about Garden

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 spreaders. How do I convert these numbers to my old spreader?

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

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.

What setting do I use for my scotts edgeguard DLX when using lesco professional starter fertilizer 18-24-12, item#016420


If the product you are planning to apply has a spreader setting for a Scotts SpeedyGreen, or specifially for the SpeedyGreen 3000; you can use that recommendation in your Scotts EdgeGuard DLX . If they do not have a suggested spreader setting for the SpeedyGreen or SpeedyGreen 3000, then this question would best be answered by calling Scotts directly at 1-800-543-8873. One of our associates would be happy to assist you further.

Need to calibrate my Scotts Evergreen drop speader. How do I do this?


To adjust calibration, do the following:
A) Adjust the micrometer setting to 6.
B) Squeeze the trigger against the handle.
C) The front edge of the shutoff bar should be aligned with the calibration line engraved on the bottom of the hopper.
D) 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.
If you have any questions please the Scotts Help Center at 1-800-543-8873. Stacey@scotts

Scott's no longer makes this handy helper. Do this, get some white sand and mix it with the grass seed. It will mark your lawn and help you see where you spread the seed or fertilizer. Joe

Settings for scotts products


The bag of fertilizer should tell you on the back of the setting for your spreader. It will say, Scotts 3000, Greenway XXX, etc, with the setting for that particular 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.
