BF 1 STAINLESS MODEL ONLY-Attach trim
control lever to the upper handle using (2) #10-24 x 2
1/4” screws and locknuts. Secure control cable to
lower brace with the plastic cable tie.
To check spreader for complete shutoff, pull the on/off control lever back to the “OFF” position. Determine if the
port holes are completely closed. If they are not, loosen the brace/frame bolts and push down on the handle
and front of spreader. Re-tighten bolts and check shutoff.
Use Swath Width
on Package or Adjust
per Operator’s
Walking Speed
When transporting spreader from location to location,
make sure the on/off control lever is locked in the “OFF”
position securing the lever with the hitch pin.
Model BF lss only-Ice melt products
can be applied using a normal
width, or a narrow band can be
applied by closing the trim control
and the auxiliary shut-off slide,
leaving only the center port open as
shown.
Normal spreading of material requires no adjustment unless otherwise stated on the package. In those cases where the
spread pattern has shifted, the pattern can be adjusted. If the pattern is heavier to the left (as viewed from the operating
position), loosen the knob and move the control plate in toward the hopper. If it is heavy to the right, move the control plate
out away from the hopper. Tighten knob after each adjustment is made. A scale is stamped into the control plate to provide
settings.

A simple visual pattern test can be made by
operating spreader over a non-turf area and
evaluating the pattern. A more accurate method
is to place a row of common, disposable, aluminun cake pans approximately 1 foot on centers. Set the rate plate at a middle setting and
make 3 or 4 passes in the same direction as
shown. Pour the material collected from each
pan into individual bottles of the same size. Set
them side by side in order, and visually inspect
their volume. If the pattern is not centered
(example: volume in bottle #2 left not equal to
bottle #2 right) adjust the pattern control as
described in the “PATTERN ADJUSTMENT”
section.
Once the pattern is uniform, the effective pattern
width can be determined. the effective pattern
width is the distance out from the spreader to a
point where the amount of material is 1/2 the
average amount in the center pans. This distance is multiplied by 2 to achieve the total
effective pattern width.
The BF l spreader was factory calibrated, however,
calibration should be checked occasionally to assure
optimum performance.

The conversions should be used as guidelines for establishing proper rate settings for the particular product
being applied. Steps for obtaining the most accurate settings are outlined in the “How to Determine Spreader
Settings and Spread Width” section of this manual.
These settings are approximate and may vary due to physical characteristics of the product. Walking speed.
wear, condition of the turf and humidity, may cause actual rate setting to deviate. No expressed nor implied
warranty or guarantee is provided as to coverage or uniformity indicated by these rate settings.
