Package Contents
A complete EZ Spread 2 and EZ Spread 3 TM control system contains the following items:
1) EZ Spread 2 or EZ Spread 3TM control unit;
2) This manual;
3) Power cable (MK-1003)
4) Remote Blast and Pass (pause) cable (TS 2004)
5) Hydraulic control cables (SF-1000) (one each for Auger, Spinner and Aux).
If any of these items are missing, please contact your distributor for replacement parts.
Functional Overview – Convertible Capability
EZ Spread 2 and EZ Spread 3 TM are manual controllers for hydraulically powered spreading systems,
offering independent output control for auger (feed rate), spinner (lane width) and aux (a 3rd hydraulic
function such as a pre-wet or a cross auger). The EZ Spread “Convertible” can be configured in three ways
during set up: a) Manual only – no ground speed; b) Ground speed triggered on/off; c) Ground speed
oriented on/off.
High Current Electric Pre-Wet Systems
The pre-wet channel on EZ Spread 3 TM is rated for a maximum current capacity of 6 amps. If
you are using an electric pre-wet pump that is rated for higher source current levels, contact Cirus Controls
for the Electric Pre-Wet Driver accessory module.
Operating Controls:
Power On/Off: turns on power to the complete system (“on” when red is visible on switch).
Blast /Pass (Pause) Toggle Switch: this paddle switch allows the operator to turn on the blast or pass
(pause) function:
* “Toggle left” turns blast on. When configured as “on/off,” move toggle left to turn blast off.
When configured as “timed blast,” moving toggle left adds one time increment. “Pass (Pause)” turns blast
off.
* “Toggle right” turns on the “pass (pause)” function and “pauses” the output of all three channels.
Note: Controller defaults (at power up) with “pass (pause)” function on and pass (pause) indicator
light lit.
Gnd. Speed On/ Off: when turned on, the “auger” and the “aux” are normally linked to the motion of the
truck. (Spreading will commence when auger &/or Aux dials are set above zero and the truck moves).
Note: Proper operation requires the speedometer cable to be hooked up and the “Gnd Speed” switch to be
in the “on” position. If the speedometer sensor or cable is not functioning, and the “Gnd Speed” switch is
on, the controller receives no signal and the spreader will not output material.
When Gnd Speed switch is in the off position, the ground speed linkage is disabled and the auger, spinner
and aux. controls operate without regard for motion of the truck. In the event of a ground speed sensing
failure, turning off the “Gnd Speed switch” allows the EZ Spread to be operated manually until the sensor
problem is corrected.
Ground Speed Setup: EZ Spread TM controllers include “setup optional” ground speed interaction on the
auger and auxiliary output channels. (The spinner channel is not ground speed oriented). No calibration is
necessary for the ground speed orientation function. Set up personnel can choose to configure the
controller as: a) Manual (no ground speed); b) Ground Speed Triggered on/off: controller actuates when

ground speed switch is “on” and truck is in motion; c) Ground Speed Oriented on/off: controller orients
with truck speed when ground speed switch is “on” and truck is in motion; See setup steps for details.
Feed Rate (Auger) Control: is a detented trim pot allowing the operator to turn auger off (0 setting) and
increase speed to maximum (10 setting). Caution: auger can operate any time the dial is non-zero.
Lane Width (Spinner) Control: is a detented trim pot allowing the operator to turn the spinner off (0
setting) and/or to uniformly increase its speed to maximum (10 setting). Caution: the spinner can
operate any time the dial is non-zero.
Aux Control: is an optional detented trim pot allowing the operator to turn a third hydraulic function off (0
setting) and/or to uniformly increase its speed to maximum (10 setting). Caution: the Aux function can
operate any time the dial is non-zero.
10 Amp Fuse: a single 10a fuse protects the circuitry and is located in the rear of the unit.

Pre-Delivery
Step 1
To install and run either EZ Spread TM system, the following steps must be completed.
1) Mount the control unit in the truck cab;
2) Connect hydraulic control cables, power, remote blast/pass (pause) and any other optional cables;
3) Power up the unit, and check functionality of outputs;
4) Set the trims;
Installing the control unit
The control unit of the EZ Spread TM can be mounted in the flip arm (seat or pedestal mount) or in a stand
alone configuration.
Guard Against RF Interference
Even properly guarded sources of radio frequency (rf) noise can “leak” and interfere with in-cab
electronics. Take care when installing radios and radio antenna cable to keep at least 24” spacing between
them and any cabling for the EZ Spread TM.

1) Connect the SF-1000 hydraulic cables to the labeled ports (Hyd A = Auger, Hyd B = Spinner, Hyd C =
Aux). or connect TS-2018 to Hyd Out.
2) Connect the TS-2004 speedo cable to the truck to access the speedometer signal. If equipped with a
Cirus Controls plow control, connect remote blast/pass (pause) cable to the Plow control remote blast/pass
(pause) cable (optional).
3) Finally, connect the MK 1003 power cable to the unit. Check to make sure that the power switch is off
before connecting the power leads and then connect power and ground to the cable. The power cable is
normally connected to a 12 volt ignition hot source or it can be connected to the battery, as the unit is
fused, or to a power circuit capable of delivering a minimum of 10 amps.
Step 2 – Configure and trim hydraulic channels and “blast”
Potential for injury due to unexpected
startup or movement of mechanical
equipment.
WARNING
Unexpected startup or movement of
mechanical equipment may cause injury to eyes and extremities.
During initial startup and te sting, the
spreader components may start without warning. Stay clear of the auger,
spinner, and liquid nozzles until initial
power up and programming are complete.
All three hydraulic channels can be trimmed using the controls on the front of the switch panel. During
configuration, the “Ground Speed” function is disabled, so the auger will move while the truck is
standing still. An “ideally trimmed” system will just begin to move at an operating setting of 1 and will
reach its maximum speed at a setting of 10. Note that the setting on the dial used during “set up trimming
of a function” (below) will not correlate to the settings used during normal operation.
Note: Changes to configuration are saved when you reach the last step and the blast and pass (pause)
LED’s alternately flash. If you terminate your configuration prior to reaching the last step, any and
all changes are lost and the controller returns to default settings or to settings saved previously.
To enter the configuration mode: Hold blast switch (left), turn on power, wait for two seconds till blast
and pass (pause) LED’s flash, and release Blast. The flashing LED’s show values being set.
a)
Set “Control Frequency” to match the frequency of the coil installed in the truck
Indication:
Both blast and pass (pause) LED’s flash slow (2x sec)
Action:
Set Frequency using auger dial.
(0 = 40, 1 = 60, 2 = 80, 3 = 100, 4 = 120, 5 = 140, 6 = 160, 7=180, 8=220 etc.)
Accept:
See Attachment C for frequency by coil manufacturer. Default is set at 120Hz.
Press pass (pause) to confirm chosen value (press blast to use previous setting).
b)

Note: optimal value may be between numbers on the dial.
Accept:
Press pass (pause) to confirm chosen value (press blast to use previous setting)
c)
Set “Feed Rate” (Auger/conveyor) Maximum trim level:
Indication:
Blast LED will flash quickly (8x sec).
Action:
Set auger maximum trim using auger dial. Rotate dial until auger speed reaches its
maximum. When further rotation of the dial does not change the auger speed, you have
reached the maximum speed. Note: optimal value may be between numbers on the dial.

Step 3 - Testing the signal outputs
Potential for injury due to unexpected
startup or movement of mechanical
equipment.
WARNING
Unexpected startup or movement of
mechanical equipment may cause injury to eyes and extremities.
During initial startup and te sting, the
spreader components may start without warning. Stay clear of the auger,
spinner, and liquid nozzles until initial
power up and programming are complete.
1) Turn on the system with the truck running.
2) Turn “off” the ground speed trigger switch and set the auger dial to any “non-zero” setting. The
auger will engage and the LED on the valve junction box will light.
3) Turn “on” the “Gnd Speed” switch, the auger will stop running and the VJB LED will turn off.
4) Drive truck slowly forward. Verify that auger starts turning when truck runs above 2 mph. If not,
adjust speedo reference trim pot (back panel) until auger responds to truck motion.
5) Final trimming of auger motion can be accomplished after ground speed signal is validated.
6) To adjust one or more trim settings, hold blast, turn on power, wait for two seconds, then release
blast. The spreader will now enter configuration mode as before. When entering the
configuration mode, the spreader retains the settings made in step 2. You can change only the
settings you wish to change, by pressing blast to retain old settings. To accept new settings, press
“pass (pause)” after making adjustments.
