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.

SOURCE: Drop and Broadcast Spreaders comparison

There are two common types of lawn spreader: drop or broadcast. The drop spreader is a familiar sight at garden centers and hardware stores. If you are a homeowner with less than 5,000 sq.ft. of lawn area, an inexpensive drop spreader may be all you need. Drop spreaders tend to be more manueverable in tight, awkward spaces and are relatively easy to use. Broadcast spreaders throw the material out in a wider swath, sometimes as wide as 8'. If you have a large area to cover, they can make short work of it. They are, however, a little trickier to use, since you need to keep up a steady walking speed (usually 3 mph) and you need to be moving when you activate the spreader. It's also harder to get a clean edge, although some broadcast spreaders come with side deflectors, which let you get close to side-walks, beds and driveways without spreading material on these adjacent areas. There are also small, hand-held broadcast spreaders suitable for smaller areas.

SOURCE: Spreaders Guidelines

It is always a good idea to calibrate your own spreader, even if the manufacturer provides guidelines for setting the spreader with different products. It's easy to calibrate and, if you make a note of your results, you only have to do it once for each product.

SOURCE: Spreaders how does it work?

An axle or “beater bar” is located inside the bin next to an open slot in the floor. Attached to the axle is a series of beater arms or paddles. When the axle turns, the paddles break up the material and direct it toward the opening where it is deposited evenly on the soil.

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.
