about half way.
e. If closure plate does not open half way, it may be
closed too far at "OFF". Adjust position of flow control
mounting bracket until closure plate will open about
half way at "5" and still close when arm is locked in
"OFF". Tighten 1/4" lock nuts.

1.

3.
8' to
10'
Loosen the nylon wing nut, set the adjustable stop to
the desired flow rate setting and retighten the wing nut.
The higher the setting number, the wider the opening
in the bottom of the hopper.
Refer to the application chart on page 8 and to the
instructions on the fertilizer bag to select the proper
flow rate setting.
Pull the flow control arm against the adjustable stop
for the on position and toward the hopper for the off
position.
OVERLAP
FIGURE 14
USING YOUR SPREADER
We do not recommend the use of any powdered lawn
chemicals, due to difficulty in obtaining a satisfactory or
consistent broadcast pattern.
1.
Determine approximate square footage of area to be
covered and estimate amount of material required.
2. Before filling the hopper make sure the flow control arm
is in the off position and the closure plate is shut.
3. Break up any lumpy fertilizer as you fill the hopper.
4. Set the adjustable stop with the flow control arm still
in the off position. Refer to the application chart on
this page and to the instructions on the fertilizer bag
to select the proper flow rate setting.
5. The application chart is calculated for light to heavy
application at a walking speed of 3 mph, or 100 ft. in 23
seconds. A variation in speed will require an adjustment
of the flow rate to maintain the same coverage. The
faster you walk, the wider the broadcast width.
6. Always start the spreader in motion before opening
the closure plate.
7. Always shut the closure plate before turning or stopping
the spreader.
8. If fertilizer is accidentally deposited too heavily in a
small area, soak the area thoroughly with a garden
hose or sprinkler to prevent burning of the lawn.
9. To insure uniform coverage, make each pass so that the
broadcast pattern slightly overlaps the pattern from the
previous pass as shown in figure 14. The approximate
broadcast widths for different materials are shown in
the application chart on this page.
10. When broadcasting weed control fertilizers, make sure
the broadcast pattern does not hit evergreen trees,
flowers or shrubs.
IMPORTANT: Application rates shown in the chart
are affected by humidity and by the moisture content of
the material (granular and pellet). Some minor setting
adjustments may be necessary to compensate for this
condition.

MAINTENANCE
SERVICE AND ADJUSTMENTS
CHECK FOR LOOSE FASTENERS
1. Before each use make a thorough visual check of
the spreader for any bolts and nuts which may have
loosened. Retighten any loose bolts and nuts.
REPLACING SLOTTED GEAR
1. If the axle, slotted gear and sprocket assembly is disassembled, mark down the positions of the parts as they
are removed. The drive wheel and sprocket positions in
relation to the slotted gear determine which direction
the spreader plate will spin. Be sure to reassemble
them in their original positions. (Refer to figure 3 on
page 4.) Use shim washers (Ref. no. 21 on pages 10
and 11) as needed for minimum backlash. Add grease
to gear and sprocket.
CHECK FOR WORN OF DAMAGED PARTS
2. Check for worn or damaged parts before each use.
Repair or replace parts if necessary.
CHECK TIRE INFLATION
3. Check if tires are adequately inflated before each use.
Do not inflate tires beyond maximum recommended
pressure.
LOCKED UP SPREADER
1. Turn the spreader over so that the wheels are off the
ground.
2. Loosen all three nuts on the shaft support plate just
enough so that the bolts can be turned easily with a
wrench but cannot be turned by hand.
3. Spin the drive wheel and note how freely it spins and
how much noise the slotted gear makes.
4. To free up the wheel and gear, tap gently on the front
or rear edge of the shaft support plate to move it
slightly forward or backward. You can also tap at the
corners of the plate to angle it slightly.
5. Spin the drive wheel after each adjustment to see if it
spins more freely and if the gear noise is reduced.
6. Continue making slight adjustments until you find the
position where the drive wheel spins most freely and
the gear makes the least noise.
7. Secure the shaft support plate in this position by
retightening all three nuts that you loosened.
CAUTION: DO NOT inflate tires beyond
the maximum recommended pressure
printed on side of tire.
CLEANING
4. Rinse inside of hopper and exterior of spreader and
dry off before storing.
LUBRICATE (See figure 15)
5. Lightly apply automotive grease as needed to the
sprocket and gear.
6. Oil the nylon bushings on the vertical sprocket shaft
and on the axle at least once a year, or more often as
needed.
7. Oil right hand (idler) wheel bearing at least once a year
or more often as needed.
