HELPFUL HINTS: READ THE DIRECTIONS BEFORE ASSEMBLY
;; If your spreader does not spread evenly, be sure the FRONT on the gear box points away from the tow bar of the spreader.
The impeller must turn clockwise. Reversing the gearbox will cause the impeller to turn counter clockwise. Clean the
impeller plate after each use. Fertilizer stuck on the impeller blades will cause uneven spreading.
;; Your spreader is designed to be pulled at three miles per hour, which is a brisk walking speed. Slower or faster speeds will
change the spread patterns. Wet fertilizer will also change the spread pattern and flow rate. Clean and dry your spreader
thoroughly after each use. A coating of light spray oil on all metal parts, (including the inside of the frame tubing) will
help prevent corrosion. Wash between the shut off plate and bottom of the hopper.
;; Gears are permanently lubricated at the factory. Do not open the gearbox or dirt may enter.
Do not tow
OVER faster than
3 MPH
3 MPH
ROCK SALT and POWDERED MATERIALS
should not be used in this spreader as it will
damage gearbox and can void warranty.
Use only granular materials.
Your spreader is shipped semi assembled, you will need (2) 7/16” wrenches, a cutting tool to cut through the plastic zip-ties,
and a pair of pliers to bend the cotter pins that hold the wheels to the axle.
1. Remove the spreader and identify all loose parts from carton.

5-Years to the end user with the original purchase receipt. If a manufacturing non-conformance is found, Earthway Products,
Inc. at its discretion will repair or replace the part(s) or product at no charge provided the failure is not the result of incorrect
installation, mishandling, misuse, tampering, or normal wear and tear as determined by Earthway . Earthway at its discretion
may require that the part(s) or product be returned along with the original purchase receipt at owners’ expense for examination
and compliance with the terms of this warranty. Do not return any product without first receiving authorization from Earthway
Products, Inc. To seek remedy under this warranty, contact Earthway Products, Inc. at 574-848-7491, [email protected]
.com or write to Earthway Products, Inc. P.O. Box 547 Bristol, Indiana 46507 and describe the nature of the manufacturing
defect. SPECIFIC LIMITATIONS: This warranty covers only the part(s) or product; any labor charges associated with
repair or replacement of non-conformances are specifically excluded. Due to the corrosive nature of most fertilizers and ice
melt products, Earthway Products, Inc. makes no warranty against and specifically excludes part(s) or product degradation or
failure due to corrosion or its effects. Clean and dry your spreader thoroughly after each use, as a preventative measure, coat
all metal parts (inside the tubing especially) with a light oil or silicon spray.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Before filling hopper, become familiar with the operation of this spreader.
1. Obtain proper setting for material to be used from the RATE SETTING CHART included with this spreader.
2. Move stop bolt on rate gauge assembly to the proper setting.
3. While pushing spreader forward, pull control lever back to stop bolt.
4. To stop, push lever forward to close flow holes before you stop moving.
5. When finished, empty any remaining material from hopper.
6. Thoroughly wash spreader and allow to dry before storing. Light oiling can prevent corrosion.
The settings furnished on the Rate Setting Matrix are intended as a guide only. Variations in physical characteristics of
material applied, tow speed, and roughness of ground surface may require slightly different spreader settings. Due to the above
conditions, the manufacturer makes no warranty as to the uniformity of coverage actually obtained from the settings listed.

Fig 1
Drop holes shown fully open.
Rod Type Adjustment
1. Open the shut-off so that the drop holes are completely open as illustrated to the right.
2. Review the Control Lever position - if it is set so that the forward edge is at #30, you are calibrated. If not you need to adjust the control rod at the pivot bracket shown in Fig 1.
A. If your shut-off is not able to open fully as in step #1. Loosen the top nut a few turns, then loosen the lower nut so that it allows you to push the shut-off open fully. Next tighten each nut so that they contact the pivot bracket without moving it, and then carefully tighten each nut fully so they do not loosen during use. Recheck adjustment as outlined in #1 above.
B. If your shut-off is able to open fully as in step #1, but the Control Lever is not at #30. Loosen the top nut a few turns, then loosen the lower nut so that it allows you to push the Control Lever to #30. Next tighten each nut so that they contact the pivot bracket without moving it. Carefully tighten each nut fully so they do not loosen during use. Recheck adjust as outlined in #1 above.
Cable Type Adjustment
1. Open the Control Lever so that the shut-off and drop holes are completely open as illustrated above right.
2. Review the Control Lever position so that the indicator is pointed to #30, if it is your calibration is correct. If not you need to adjust the control cable at the cable clamp on the underside of the hopper as shown in Fig 2.
A. If your shut-off is not able to open fully as in step #1. Loosen the cable clamp screw slightly so that you can slide the outer cable out so that the shut-off is fully open. Next tighten the cable clamp screw securely. Recheck adjustment as outlined in #1 above.
B. If your shut-off is able to open fully as in step #1, but the Control Lever is not at #30. Loosen the cable clamp screw slightly so that you can slide the outer cable in so that the Control Lever opens to #30. Next tighten the cable clamp screw securely. Recheck adjustment as outlined in #1 above.
Make sure the drop holes in the bottom of the hopper are fully open when the Rate Control handle is on #30.
If not, please adjust control cable or control rod to allow for a full open hopper position at #30.
