OPERATION
How to use your spreader
1. Always use with supplied lattice mesh, the mesh is designed to screen of lumps which may
block the outlet of spreader and damage the agitating pin.
2. Always use with the supplied vinyl cover, the cover is designed to screen moisture and wind.
3. Do not stock fertilizers in the hopper, the fertilizer will crystalize after long exposure to air.
4. After use, always rinse the hopper and closure plate, any crystalized debris on closure plate
may block the hopper outlet.
5. Always close the outlet of hopper by push the flow control lever to lock position.
6. If fertilizer is accidentally spread too heavy in some area, soak the area thoroughly with a
garden hose to prevent burning of the lawn roots.
Fill the Spreader
1. Fill the spreader over a patch of bare ground or sidewalk/driveway.
2. Do not fill the spreader on the lawn. Sweep up any spilled product.
3. Always fill the spreader with flow control lever on “OFF” position.
4. Always break up any lumps before filling the spreader. Do not attempt to break the lumps in
the hopper, as it may cause damage to the lattice mesh and the spreader.

4. Move the indicator to desired settings.
5. Tighten the wing knob to fix the position.
6. When spreading, release the control lever from “OFF” position to let it rest on the indicator.
How to Adjust the Closure Plate

outlet can be moved to various positions for different directional spreading. Left/right spreadings
is usually used when near the sidewalks, plant beds.

DIRECTIONAL CONTROL
LEVER
Normal pattern (uniform) spreading requires the outlet is centered the arch opening on bottom of
the hopper. To get familiar with which position the directional control lever stays when the outlet is
centered, you need practice before filling the hopper. Look inside empty hopper while adjusting
the directional control lever, when the outlet is at the center of the arch opening on the hopper,
use a marker to draw a line where the lever stays, so you know where the control lever should stay
for every use of the normal spreading pattern.
B. Left-side spreading
Left-side pattern
OU
TL
ET
Left side spreading requires the outlet is at the right side of the hopper opening. Move the
outlet to the right by pushing the directional control lever clockwise till it comes to the end.
C. Right-side spreading
Right-side pattern
OUTLET
Right- side spreading requires the outlet is at the left side of the hopper opening. Move the outlet
to the right by pushing the directional control lever counter-clockwise till it comes to the end.
Important notice:
1. The spreading patterns and scopes may vary with the change of towing speed and flow rate
settings. Always make some slight adjustment on the outlet positions to get the best spreading
effect while the condition changes.
2. During spreading, you may find the spreading scope, direction is changing. The changes may
come from the movement of outlet plate which is getting loose from agitating pressure inside
the hopper. Stop the vehicle and close the closure plate by pushing the flow control lever to
lock. Tighten the nuts securing the out let plate.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
