SPEED - ACCURACY - FREEDOM FROM STRIPES AND STREAKS
are yours - when you use this Spreader.
Rotary Agitator
The spread width ranges from 4 ft. to 12 ft. wide, depending on the
volume/density, particle size of the material and the rate of travel.
Use the rotary agitator only if needed. Free-flowing, lump-free
materials will not require the agitator. The rotary agitator is easily
installed or removed. Note the clockwise rotation & sweep.
Place felt washer around spinner shaft before inserting agitator.
The spread thins or feathers at the outer edges, eliminating sharp,
“Edge of spread” lines which cause stripes and streaks. Extra coverage
can be given under trees and other heavy feeding areas without
showing “edge of spread” lines.
Gaps and double overlaps are less likely. Small errors in travel are
forgiven and do not show.
WARNING: When spreading products containing herbicides, exercise extreme
caution with respect to careless spreading and to wind-drift.
CONTACT OF SOME PRODUCTS ON SOME PLANTS CAN BE FATAL.
If a dial setting is not found, use the size and weight comparison table
found on the back page.
Determine a dial setting on the low side. If the setting proves to be
too low, cover the area more than one time. A higher setting can be
used when a proven dial setting is established.
REMEMBER - Published dial settings can be approximate only. The
operation of the spreader, the condition of the material (damp or dry
or over-pulverized) and weather conditions, are all contributing factors.
For these reasons, it’s often a good idea to spread the area 2 times at one-half rate - in cross directions (SEE INFORMATION ON ONE-HALF
RATE DIAL SETTINGS ON REFERENCE CHART ON THE BACK PAGE.
SPREADING AT ONE-HALF RATE DIAL SETTINGS IS HIGHLY
RECOMMENDED UNDER DAMP & HUMID CONDITIONS.
BECOME FAMILIAR WITH THE OPERATION OF THE SPREADER
BEFORE YOU PUT MATERIAL IN THE HOPPER.
OIL BEARINGS AND ALL MOVING PARTS
Make certain the spreader is running freely!
Now You are Ready to Put Material in the Hopper
• Make certain the rate gate is in closed position.
• As insurance against spill damage and spill loss, put material in the
hopper with the spreader on a walk, driveway, paper, plastic, etc.
• The spreader will be easier to use if you only half-fill the hopper. Later
on you can fill the hopper if you so choose.
• Or for added capacity, the inverted bag in the hopper can serve as a
capacity extension. Also, an extension hopper, complete with filtering
and pulverizing screen, is available from the manufacturer.
Now You are Ready to Spread
• Spread header strips at the ends of the area
OPPOSITE the direction of spreading. This will
provide a “turn-around” area, an area to
re-align the spreader for the return spread.
• Example is for 6 ft. wide spread: Make the
first spreading pass at one-half the spread
width from the edge of the spreading area or
in this case approximately 3 feet or one
big step.
Practice walking with the spreader, opening and closing the rate gate
at the appropriate times.
• Additional spreading passes will be at the full
spread width or approximately 6 feet apart.
Travel at a constant speed and operate the spreader lever position.
• TAKE A SIGHTING AT THE FAR END. Keep
your eye on the sighting as you spread. You
will not need to wonder where you are or
where you have been. Continue until
spreading is completed.
Remember: Open the rate gate after the spreader is in motion at
operating speed (about 3 mph., or at a brisk walking pace).
Close the rate gate while spreader is still at operational speed.

Did You Know?
NOTE: With the rotary agitator installed, the rate gate closed (not spreading) and with
material in the hopper, the spreader will push harder than normal. (This is because the
agitator is stirring the material and it has no place to go.)

IMMEDIATELY AFTER USE - CLEAN AND OIL THE SPREADER
• Method #1 -
Wipe spreader thoroughly with an oily cloth. Oil all bearings and
bearing areas.
• Method #2 -
Wash, rinse, and dry the spreader. Note: Drying takes time.
(Moisture trapped in bearing areas is slow to go.) Immediately after drying oil all bearings and moving parts. Make certain all operations are thorough.
Note: Good “Dry Cleaning” is preferable to poor “Wet Cleaning”.
•
It is virtually impossible to have rust and corrosion on a clean, dry, oiled surface.
•
Again - just before using - oil all bearings and moving parts.
•
In storage, ideally the spreader should be hung by the handle. In any case, do not
pile weight on the spreader, as excess weight over a period of time can distort
the tires.

THERE'S MORE TO A SPREADER THAN MEETS THE EYE
––– LOTS MORE
Broadcast Spreading
Spreadability
Dial-a-matic regulator ensures exact spread rate. Accuway® Spread Pattern
Equalizer assures exact placement of the spread pattern - Bull's Eye - dead to
the center of the spreader. All products - All spreading conditions. Skewing is
eliminated.
Durability
Broadcast spreading is
as old as early man. In
the early days of agriculture, field seeding was
accomplished with hand
cast broadcasting. The
hand cast method of
seeding was a limited
factor in growing field
crops that were hand
seeded.
Mechanized casting
came into being in
1868 when Samuel
Speicher invented the
Hand Crank "Cyclone"
Seeder.
The seed sower was a
breakthrough in field
seeding. It was hailed
as a major advancement in agricultural
implements.
10
Paul Speicher put the
hand crank seeder on
wheels in 1955.
This development ushered in a new era in
spreading and spreading products. New products and product forms
adapted to broadcast
spreading were developed.
In 1988 a new
dimension was added to
broadcast spreading SPREAD PATTERN
CONTROL - a dead
center spread pattern
equalizer.
Spyker's Accuway®
spread pattern equalizer
solves a complicated
problem with a
fundamental patented
solution.
288 series spreaders will survive use and abuse. Welded steel construction is
double braced, finished in baked on powder coated enamel. Generous use of
highest quality stainless steel. Guaranteed metal gears.
Reliability You can count on.
Accuway® spread control system is so innovative, it's patented.
So successful it's used on all Spyker 288 Super spreaders.

Operating Instructions
Read Before Using
Model 288 Super
The Mulch-n-More 288 Super series all operate basically the same.
All 288 Super spreaders have solid stainless axle, metal drive gears and
welded frames making this the most durable, long lasting ground driven
spreader on the market today.
The following is a description of Mulch-n-More 288 Super series
operating instructions…
All units come standard with a regular spinner blade for spreading seed,
fertilizer, granular chemical products and other lower rate granular products.
There are a variety of optional attachments for the 288 Super…
1. Mulch Spinner Blade… Used for spreading a variety of products from Pellet
Mulch such as PennMulch® to Dry Sand, Salt and other difficult to spread
high volume or large particle products. With Spyker’s patent pending
removable spinner blade you can change to mulch blade in a matter of
seconds. All other spreaders that are on the market require the removal of
the hopper to access the spinner blade which can take as long as 1/2 to 1
hour to do. No other spreader company manufactures a “mulch basket
spinner blade” for use with high volume products.
12
2. Calibration Pan… Used for calibrating the Turf product for accurate
spreading to reduce waste and increase effectiveness of the product.
This is the latest, greatest attachment for the 288 Super. Calibrate
without moving the spreader.
3. Border Patrol… Used for guarding collars, greens, flower beds,
driveways and sidewalks from fertilizer or pesticide materials. Stop flow to
one side. Easily turned on and off with your foot while continuing to spread.
4. Barrier Shield… For use with ice melt products and salt to deflect the
product down on to the sidewalk (3’ width pattern) essentially converting
the rotary spreader to a drop spreader for sidewalks.
Simply put the “Accuway Control” deflects the material you are spreading to
another area on the spinner blade thereby adjusting your spread pattern to
dead center.
1. The 288 Super spreaders have a standard “Spyker” 1-9 spreader setting
knob located on the front (material distribution side) of the spreader. Simply
dial the setting and you’re ready to spread. Even better, choose a setting and
calibrate using the optional ‘calibration tray’ and calibration instructions
included with your spreader.
2. All 288 Super spreaders have controls on the handle. The lever on the right
side is the gate open and shut control. Forward is open and backward is
closed.
3. The lever on the left side of the handle is called the “Accuway Control”.
This lever controls the spread pattern of the product. To operate the
“Accuway Control” push the left control handle all of the way forward prior to
spreading the product. As you spread, if the spread pattern is skewing or
flowing heavy to one side, slowly pull back on the left lever (VERY SLOWLY).
As you pull the lever back towards you, you will begin to see the spread
pattern change or go to center. When you see the pattern you wish to have,
stop pulling the lever. You are set and no further adjustments are needed for
the product you are spreading.
4. If you lose the setting on the “Accuway Control” simply push the lever
forward again and slowly pull back on the left lever until the pattern is
where you would like it to be.
Note: Over adjusting the “Accuway Control” lever can block the flow of fertilizer
completely. Follow step 4 if you are not sure where the Accuway Deflector
is located.

Operating Instructions
Read Before Using
Warranty
Operating at the Mulch Setting
1. You will notice a slot in the spreader setting dial control right where the 9 is or was
located. Simply dial the setting so that the metal guide will go through this dial slot
when you move the right control lever.
2. The spreader opening will now move all of the way open to the maximum opening that
the spreader can achieve.
3. This setting was basically designed to spread PennMulch® at 70-75 lbs. per
thousand square feet at 2.5 miles per hour. It’s easy enough to check and adjust your
walking speed. See Mulch-n-More calibration instructions “Calculating your
walking speed”.
4. The “all of the way open” setting can also be used to spread dry sand, dry organic top
dresses and fertilizers, salt and ice melt products and other normally difficult to spread
products.
5. When using the mulch setting you can gate the flow of the material as you’re
spreading. For salt, sand and top dress materials in which an accurate setting is
not critical simply watch the flow of material as it comes out of the spreader. Either
open more or close off (gate the flow) until you feel comfortable with the amount of
material you are spreading. If you would like to check the flow rate simply mark the
position of the control lever with a piece of tape and use the calibration bucket to
check the coverage per thousand square feet. (See the calibration instructions included
with the calibration bucket or “Calibrating the Mulch-n-More” on the www.spyker.com
web site.)
6. Through trials involving mass flow products such as sand and salt we have found
that using the “mulch basket” gives you the best spread pattern. Although the spread
will be slightly to the right using the mulch basket, the actual spread of the product
is even all of the way across the effective spread width. Depending on the type of
product you’re spreading, using a standard spinner blade the product will flow heavy
to the left and give you a less than desirable spread pattern leaving a heavy line of
product in one spot and light at another. This is the exact reason Spyker developed
the Mulch spinner blade. No other ground driven spreader has the capability of
spreading materials at these high rates because they all use a standard spinner blade.
Changing the Spinner Blade
1 YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY
This is warranted to the original purchaser only. Spyker will replace
parts with defects in materials or workmanship, for a period of one
year from the date of purchase.
*For Spyker Spreaders LLC, products employing metal gear systems, pinion and bevel, these metal gears, only, not inclusive of any
other parts or materials, are warranted for the life of the spreader,
not to be used for replacement or repair past original purchase.
Spyker Spreaders LLC will not be liable for any loss, damage or
expense including, but not limited to, consequential or incidental
damages, arising from the operation, condition or use of the item.
The sole and exclusive remedy against Spyker Spreaders LLC being
the replacement of the defective parts. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary
from state to state.
THIS EXPRESS WARRANTY, WHICH IS APPLICABLE ONLY
TO THE ORIGINAL PURCHASE, IS IN LIEU OF AND
EXCLUDES ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, WHETHER
EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED BY OPERATION OF LAW OR
OTHERWISE, INCLUDING ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
1. Simply remove the special “spring pin” from the spinner shaft that holds the regular spinner
blade onto the spinner shaft. Lift the stainless collar that holds the shaft together.
2. Slide the shaft upwards a few inches and remove the blade from the shaft.
3. Slide the Mulch Basket onto the shaft, slide the collar back onto the shaft under the blade,
re-connect the shaft and slide the collar over the break in the shaft.
4. Put the “spring pin” in the lower hole on the shaft (for the Mulch Basket) and clip the spring
onto the shaft using the hook. The “spring pin” holds the spinner blade in place and stops the
collar from moving upwards so that the shaft will not separate.

5. Reverse instructions for replacing the regular spinner blade. The only difference would be that
you must pin the regular blade using the upper hole on the spinner shaft. It’s easy. The upper
hole is for the regular spinner blade, the lower hole is for the Mulch Basket.
