Calculating Your Flow Setting
Caution
1. Move Handle into upright position, hand tighten Wing Nuts.
On the bag of fertilizer there should be a
chart that gives the recommended settings for
that particular bag. Because different manufactures of fertilizer make the granules different
sizes it is impossible for spreader manufactures
to give guidelines for all of the different fertilizers. In addition to this walking speed and terrain, may vary, therefore settings may need to
be adjusted. Because of these conditions, Precision Product Inc. makes no warranty as to the
uniformity of coverage actually obtained from
any of these calculations.
To calculate how many pounds of material to spread
per 1000 square feet of lawn. Follow these steps.
1. Read on your material bag how many square feet
of area the contents of the bag will cover and how
many pounds the bag weighs.
Example:
You have purchased a bag of fertilizer that states
that it will cover 5,000 square feet, and weighs
16.0 pounds.
2. To calculate coverage divide bag weight by
suggested coverage to obtain pounds per square
foot that is needed to be applied.
Example:
16.0 lbs. ÷ 5,000 sq. ft. = .0032 lbs./sq. ft.
13
11
3. To calculate how much you need for 1000 sq. ft.
multiply the pounds per square foot obtained
above by 1000.
Example:
.0032 lbs/sq. ft. x 1000 = 3.2 lbs./1000 sq. ft.
Handle
_____________________Length
X_____________________Width
=_____________________Total sq. ft.
4. Refer to standard settings table and locate the
appropriate settings number.
Example:
3.2 lbs./1000 sq. ft is closest to a 3 lbs./1000 sq. ft
so the spreader setting is a 5.

Broadcast Spreader Application Chart
Storage
Using your Spreader Controller
Applying Product
1. Rinse inside of hopper and exterior of spreader.

Broadcast Spreader Operation
1. Always have the control lever in the OFF position before filling the hopper.
2. Always push the spreader forward to operate; do not operate in reverse.
3. Start moving forward before pushing the
control lever to the ON position. Pull the
control lever to the OFF position before

4. Push the spreader at a steady speed.
5. To avoid misses or striping, space each pass
across the lawn so approximately 20% of
the spread width overlaps the previous pass.
This provides a feathered overlap to even
out distribution over the with of the spread.
CAUTION: Care must be taken with any weed
killer, pesticide, or combination product. They
can be harmful to other plant life in the yard.

Application Tips
For rectangular lawns, apply two header strips
at each end of the lawn and then go back and
forth between the header strips. Close spreader at
the end of each pass and reopen at the start of
next pass.
For irregular-shaped lawns, apply one header
strip around the entire lawn, and then go back and
forth.
To avoid streaks or misses, slightly overlap each
strip over the edge of the previous strip.
Use the settings under “Standard Settings” Section
for most applications by figuring lbs. per 1000
square feet.
These numbers are for a one pass application.
A two pass application is recommended, using a
crisscross pattern. If using this method, us half the
setting number given.
If you think too much is being applied, cut down
your setting. The solution for too much fertilizer is
water.
Close Spreader at the end of each pass. Open
again at the start of your next pass.
