RULES FOR SAFE OPERATION
Any power equipment can cause injury if operated improperly or if the user does not understand how to operate
the equipment. Exercise caution at all times when operating equipment.
•
•
•
•
•
Read the towing vehicle owners manual and towing
vehicle safety rules. Know how to operate your tractor
before using the broadcast spreader attachment.
Read the chemical label instructions and cautions for
handling and applying the chemicals purchased for
spreading.
Wear eye and hand protection when handling and when
applying lawn or garden chemicals.
Never operate tractor and spreader attachment without
wearing substantial footwear, and do not allow anyone
to ride or sit on spreader attachment frame.
Never allow children to operate the tractor or spreader
attachment, and do not allow adults to operate without
proper instructions.
•
•
•
•
Always begin with the transmission in first (low) gear and
with the engine at low speed, and gradually increase
speed as conditions permit. Maximum towing speed is
6 M.P.H.
When towing broadcast spreader do not drive too close
to a creek or ditch and be alert for holes and other
hazards which could cause you to loose control of the
broadcast spreader and tractor.
Before operating vehicle on any grade (hill) refer to the
safety rules in the vehicle owner's manual concerning
safe operation on slopes. Stay off steep slopes!
Follow maintenance and lubrication instructions as
outlined in this manual.
LOOK FOR THIS SYMBOL TO POINT OUT IMPORTANT SAFETY PRECAUTIONS. IT
MEANS ­— ATTENTION! BECOME ALERT! YOUR SAFETY IS INVOLVED.

HOW TO USE YOUR SPREADER
REFER
TO
CHARTS
SETTING THE FLOW CONTROL
(Refer to figure 13 on page 7.)
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.

FIGURE 14
USING YOUR SPREADER
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.
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 vehicle 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 drive, the wider the broadcast width. The
maximum towing speed is 6 mph.
6. Always start the tractor in motion before opening closure
plate.
7. Always shut the closure plate before turning or stopping
the tractor.
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 14. 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. A vinyl cover listed on
page 11 can be ordered as an option.The vinyl cover
acts as a wind and moisture shield, but should not be
used as a rain cover.

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 5 on page 5.)
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 beyond maximum recommended pressure.
CLEANING
LOCKED UP SPREADER
1. Turn the spreader over so that the wheels are off the
ground.
2. Loosen all three nuts on the shaft support plate just
enough so that the bolts can be turned easily with a
wrench but cannot be turned by hand.
3. Spin the drive wheel and note how freely it spins and
how much noise the slotted gear makes.
4. To free up the wheel and gear, tap gently on the front
or rear edge of the shaft support plate to move it
slightly forward or backward. You can also tap at the
corners of the plate to angle it slightly.
5. Spin the drive wheel after each adjustment to see if it
spins more freely and if the gear noise is reduced.
6. Continue making slight adjustments until you find the
position where the drive wheel spins most freely and
the gear makes the least noise.
7. Secure the shaft support plate in this position by
retightening all three nuts that you loosened.
CAUTION: DO NOT inflate tires beyond the
maximum recommended pressure printed
on side of tire.
4. Rinse inside of hopper and exterior of spreader and dry
off before storing.
LUBRICATE (See figure 15.)
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 bearing at least once a year
or more often as needed.
