HOW TO USE YOUR
.
TiPS
This unit wii! cover a 4 to 8 foot wide area depending
on the material used and the towing speed.
To avoid misses or striping, make each pass about
5 feet from the previous one so some overlapping of
spread pattern does occur.
For easiest application, spread across the shortest
edges of lawn first, making two "header" strips for a
turning area, and then spreading between the header
strips. See figure 6.
if lawn is odd shaped, spread a border around the
edges and then spread between the border. See
figure 6.
Keep wheel approximately 4 feet from any area you
do not wish to spread.
IMPORTANT: Be careful when using spreader around
ornamental plants because weed control chemicaJs
can damage these plants.

ADJUSTING THE FLOW RATE SETTING
Loosen the wing nut that fastens the control to the

o Slide the Adjustable stop to the desired setting and
