HELPFUL HINTS: READ THE DIRECTIONS BEFORE ASSEMBLY
;; If your spreader does not spread evenly, be sure the FRONT on the gear box points to the front of the spreader. The
impeller must turn clockwise. Reversing the gearbox will cause the impeller to turn counter clockwise. Clean the impeller
plate after each use. Fertilizer stuck on the impeller blades will cause uneven spreading.
;; Your spreader is designed to be pushed at three miles per hour, which is a brisk walking speed. Slower or faster speeds
will change the spread patterns. Wet fertilizer will also change the spread pattern and flow rate. Clean and dry your
spreader thoroughly after each use. Coat all metal surfaces (inside & outside of chassis tubes) with light oil or silicon spray
to help prevent corrosion. Wash between the shut off plate and bottom of the hopper. Do not use powdered materials.
;; Gears are permanently lubricated at the factory. Do not open the gearbox or dirt may enter.

Before filling hopper, become familiar with the operation of this
spreader.
1. Obtain proper setting for material to be used from the RATE
SETTING CHART included with this spreader.
2. Move stop bolt on rate gauge assembly to the proper setting.
3. While pushing spreader forward, pull control lever back to
stop bolt.
4. To stop, push lever forward to close flow holes before you stop
moving.
5. When finished, empty any remaining material from hopper.
6. Thoroughly wash spreader and allow to dry before storing.
Light oiling can prevent corrosion.
The settings furnished on the Rate Setting Matrix are intended as a guide only. Variations in physical characteristics of
material applied, walking speed, and roughness of ground surface may require slightly different spreader settings. Due to the
above conditions, the manufacturer makes no warranty as to the uniformity of coverage actually obtained from the settings
listed.

If you have any questions regarding the operation or assembly of your spreader please call us at 800-294-0671 or
574-848-7491 Monday - Friday 9:00am - 4:00pm Eastern. Accessories and Repair Parts are also available at these
numbers.
Shut-Off
Rod Type Adjustment
1. Open the shut-off so that the drop holes are completely open as illustrated to the right.
2. Review the Control Lever position - if it is set so that the forward edge is at #30, you are calibrated. If not, you need to adjust the control rod at the pivot bracket shown in Fig 1.
A. If your shut-off is not able to open fully as in step #1. Loosen the top nut a few turns, then loosen the lower nut so that it allows you to push the shut-off open fully. Next tighten each nut so that they contact the pivot bracket without moving it, and then carefully tighten each nut fully so they do not loosen during use. Recheck adjustment as outlined in #1 above.
B. If your shut-off is able to open fully as in step #1, but the Control Lever is not at #30. Loosen the top nut a few turns, then loosen the lower nut so that it allows you to push the Control Lever to #30. Next tighten each nut so that they contact the pivot bracket without moving it. Carefully tighten each nut fully so they do not loosen during use. Recheck adjust as outlined in #1 above.
Cable Type Adjustment
1. Open the Control Lever so that the shut-off and drop holes are completely open as illustrated above right.
2. Review the Control Lever position so that the indicator is pointed to #30, if it is your calibration is correct. If not you need to adjust the control cable at the cable clamp on the underside of the hopper as shown in Fig 2.
A. If your shut-off is not able to open fully as in step #1. Loosen the cable clamp screw slightly so that you can slide the outer cable out so that the shut-off is fully open. Next tighten the cable clamp screw securely. Recheck adjustment as outlined in #1 above.
B. If your shut-off is able to open fully as in step #1, but the Control Lever is not at #30. Loosen the cable clamp screw slightly so that you can slide the outer cable in so that the Control Lever opens to #30. Next tighten the cable clamp screw securely. Recheck adjustment as outlined in #1 above.
Make sure the drop holes in the bottom of the hopper are fully open when the Rate Control handle is on #30. If not, please
adjust control cable or control rod to allow for a full open hopper position at #30.

Meter of coverage as directed on the bag.
METRIC RATE SETTING
The settings furnished on the Rate Setting Matrix are intended as a guide only. Variations in physical characteristics of material applied, walking speed, and roughness
of ground surface may require slightly different spreader settings. Due to the above conditions, EPI makes no warranty as to the uniformity of coverage actually
obtained from the settings listed.

CHART 1
Step 1: Use Chart 1 to estimate the number of LBS/1,000 square feet of coverage
(Example: 20 LB. bag with 10,000 square foot coverage = 2.0 LBS/1,000
square feet)
Step 2: Find the closest LBS/1,000 square feet in Chart 2 that you estimated using
Chart 1 (Example: 2.0 LBS/1,000 square feet = Spreader Setting of 13)
Step 3: Determine the Spread Width by evaluating the particle or seed size in
Chart 3 to determine the Spread Width between Spread Paths
