28. Position the flow control mounting bracket (figure 15).
a. Push on flow control arm until it locks in "OFF"
position.
b. Slide flow control mounting bracket along tube until
closure plate in bottom of hopper just closes.
c. Snug the 1/4" lock nuts just enough to hold flow
control mounting bracket in place.
d. Set adjustable stop at "5". Pull flow control arm
against stop. Verify that closure plate has opened
about half way.
e. If closure plate does not open half way, it may be
closed too far at "OFF". Adjust position of flow control
mounting bracket until closure plate will open about
half way at "5" and still close when arm is locked
in "OFF". Tighten 1/4" lock nuts.

SETTING THE FLOW CONTROL
(Refer to figure 15 on page 7.)
8' to
10'
1. Loosen the nylon wing nut, set the adjustable stop to
the desired flow rate setting and retighten the wing
nut. The higher the setting number, the wider the
opening in the bottom of the hopper.
2. Refer to the application chart on page 8 and to the
instructions on the fertilizer bag to select the proper
flow rate setting.
3. Pull the flow control arm against the adjustable stop
for the on position and toward the hopper for the off
position.
OVERLAP
FIGURE 16
USING YOUR SPREADER
We do not recommend the use of any powdered lawn
chemicals, due to difficulty in obtaining a satisfactory or
consistent broadcast pattern.
1. Determine approximate square footage of area to be
covered and estimate amount of material required.
2. Before filling the hopper make sure the flow control
arm is in the off position and the closure plate is shut.
3. Break up any lumpy fertilizer as you fill the hopper.
4. Set the adjustable stop with the flow control arm still
in the off position. Refer to the application chart on
this page and to the instructions on the fertilizer bag
to select the proper flow rate setting.
5. The application chart is calculated for light to heavy
application at a walking speed of 3 mph, or 100
ft. in 23 seconds. A variation in speed will require
an adjustment of the flow rate to maintain the
same coverage. The faster you walk, the wider the
broadcast width.
6. Always start the spreader in motion before opening
the closure plate.
7. Always shut the closure plate before turning or
stopping the spreader.
8. If fertilizer is accidentally deposited too heavily in a
small area, soak the area thoroughly with a garden
hose or sprinkler to prevent burning of the lawn.
9. To insure uniform coverage, make each pass so that
the broadcast pattern slightly overlaps the pattern
from the previous pass as shown in figure 16. The
approximate broadcast widths for different materials
are shown in the application chart on this page.
10. When broadcasting weed control fertilizers, make
sure the broadcast pattern does not hit evergreen
trees, flowers or shrubs.
11. Heavy moisture conditions may require a cover over
the hopper to keep contents dry. The vinyl cover
(available as an accessory) acts as a wind and
moisture shield, but should not be used as a rain
cover. Refer to the parts list on page 11.
IMPORTANT: Application rates shown in the chart are affected by humidity and by the moisture content of the material
(granular and pellet). Some minor setting adjustments may
be necessary to compensate for this condition.

MAINTENANCE
SERVICE AND ADJUSTMENTS
CHECK FOR LOOSE FASTENERS
1. Before each use make a thorough visual check of
the spreader for any bolts and nuts which may have
loosened. Retighten any loose bolts and nuts.
REPLACING SLOTTED GEAR
1. If the axle, slotted gear and sprocket assembly is
disassembled, mark down the positions of the parts
as they are removed. The drive wheel and sprocket
positions in relation to the slotted gear determine
which direction the spreader plate will spin. Be sure to
reassemble them in their original positions. (Refer to
figure 3 on page 4.) Use shim washers (Ref. no. 21 on
pages 10 and 11) as needed for minimum backlash.
Add grease to gear and sprocket.
CHECK FOR WORN OF DAMAGED PARTS
2. Check for worn or damaged parts before each use.
Repair or replace parts if necessary.
CHECK TIRE INFLATION
3. Check if tires are adequately inflated before each use.
Do not inflate tires beyond maximum recommended
pressure.
CAUTION: DO NOT inflate tires beyond the
maximum recommended pressure printed
on side of tire.
CLEANING
4. Rinse inside of hopper and exterior of spreader and
dry off before storing.
LUBRICATE (See figure 17)
5. Lightly apply automotive grease as needed to the
sprocket and gear.
6. Oil the nylon bushings on the vertical sprocket shaft
and on the axle at least once a year, or more often as
needed.
7. Oil right hand (idler) wheel at least once a year or
more often as needed.
