OPERATING THE SPREADER: CALIBRATION (FOR REFERENCE ONLY)
Calibration Disclaimer
It is the responsibility of the person using this equipment to make sure that every type of material is properly calibrated
to perform as expected. This process should take place on a solid flat surface away from drains and livestock areas in
order to achieve a safe and accurate reading for proper material distribution. Failure to do so may cause an over/under
application that could damage turf areas or give an ineffective pest control treatment. Any calibration charts contained
in this manual are given as a reference point only and should not be used as an absolute condition. Spending a few
extra minutes to properly calibrate will not only save on wasted materials and time but also protect turf and other
vegetation. Below are several points to be aware of before operating your spreader in the field.
Flow rates of chemicals can change for many reasons:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Formulations vary within the same brand or even between brands
Formulations vary between batches or dates of manufacture
Humidity can cause the material to clump and flow poorly
Poor spreader maintenance can cause flow changes
Slide stop has moved or calibrated to another type of material
Human error can cause rate miscalculation
Items needed for calibration:
•
•
•
•
A way to catch the material for weighing
A device to measure distance
A scale to weigh your product
A stop watch or other means to measure time
Conversion:
To convert pounds per 1000 square feet to pounds per acre, multiply your rate by 43.6.
To convert miles-per-hour (mph) to feet-per-minute (fpm), multiply miles-per-hour by 88.
Other important information:
• 1 acre is equal to 43,600 square feet (ft 2).
• Ground speed is very important to keep in mind when doing calculations. Convert mph to feet per minute.
Use a level, open area of pavement to calibrate your spreader. Set the gate stop in the middle as a starting point.
Fill the hopper with the material you desire to use. Turn the spreader ON. Adjust spinner speed to achieve the
desired spread width. Record the spinner speed and the resulting spread width. The spinner fins can also be
adjusted to change the spread pattern.
Determine the speed at which you will be driving while spreading in feet-per-minute (fpm). Determine the desired
application rate converted to pounds-per-square-foot (lb/ft 2). Use the equation below to determine the
pounds-per-minute (lb/min) that the gate setting must allow.
Desired Application Rate (lb/ft2) x Spread Width (ft) x Speed (ft/min) = Pounds-Per-Minute (lb/min)
Open the gate using the switch mounted on the left of the control. Do not have the spinner on during this step. Put a
bucket or other means of catching material under the spreader. Leave the gate open for one minute. Brush all excess
off the spreader and motor enclosure into the bucket. Weigh the bucket with material. Subtract the weight of the bucket
when empty. Record the result. Adjust the gate based on this result to achieve the required pounds-per-minute rate.
Once this setting is established, you are ready to spread. Record this information for future use.
Example:
"When spreading material XYZ:
Spinner Speed 5 [width = 14 ft],
Drive 3.5 mph [308 fpm],
Gate = 13"
You can begin spreading with the vehicle speed, gate setting and spinner speed used in your calculations.

OPERATING THE SPREADER
DRIVING AND SPREADING ON SNOW
AND ICE
Here are some tips for driving in these conditions:
• Drive defensively.
• Do not drink, then drive or spread ice-control
materials.
CAUTION
Drinking and then driving or spreading is
very dangerous. Your reflexes, perceptions,
attentiveness and judgement can be affected
by even a small amount of alcohol. You can
have a serious or even fatal collision if you
drive after drinking. Please do not drink then
drive or spread ice-control materials.
• Spread or drive only when you have good visibility
for operating a vehicle.
• If you cannot see well due to snow or icy
conditions, you will need to slow down and keep
more space between you and other vehicles.
• Slow down, especially on higher-speed roads.
Your headlamps can light up only so much road
ahead.
Follow your vehicle owner's manual instructions for
driving in snow and ice conditions. Remember, when
you drive on snow or ice, your wheels will not get good
traction. You cannot accelerate as quickly, turning
is more difficult, and you will need longer braking
distance. Wet and hard packed snow or ice offer the
worst tire traction. It is very easy to lose control. You
will have difficulty accelerating. If you do get moving,
you may have poor steering and difficult braking,
which can cause you to slide out of control.
• If you are tired, pull off in a safe place and rest.
• The spreader's size and location reduce driver
visibility to the rear of the vehicle. We recommend
an OSHA compliant backup alarm for all governed
employers.
• Keep your windshield and all glass on your vehicle
clean to see around you.
• Dress properly for the weather. Wear layers of
clothing; as you get warm, you can take off layers.
SPREADING TIPS
• Spread ice melters with the storm to prevent
unmanageable levels of ice.
• Never exceed 10 mph (16 km/h) when spreading.
• For a heavier pass, drive slower.
• Never operate spreader near pedestrians.
• Calculate spread pattern when near vegetation.
