ABOUT YOUR PUSH SPREADER
This push spreader is designed to spreader a wide range of materials (Fertilizer, Grass Seed and Ice melt).
Materials such as Powders, Manure, Top Soil, Gravel, and Mulch have the wrong physical characteristics
and should not be used with this spreader. Never exceed the rated load capacity of 125lbs when
operating the spreader.
Your spreader needs to be pushed at three miles per hour, which is a brisk walking speed. Slower or faster
speeds will change the spread patterns. Wet spreading material will also change the spread pattern and
flow rate. Clean your spreader thoroughly after each use. Wash between the shut off plate and bottom of
the hopper.
Do not open the gear box or dirt may enter these gears are permanently lubricated at the factory.
Technical specifications on the push spreader are provided in the “Specifications” section of this manual.

Operation Instructions
WARNING
Before using the push spreader, review the instructions below and safety information before operating.
Failure to follow these instructions may result in property damage or injury to the operator or
bystanders.
USING YOUR SPREADER
1. Inspect your spreader before each use. Make sure the wheels turn easily, and the gearbox moves
when the spreader is pushed. The hopper should be clean and free from cracks.
2. Spreader is designed to spread a range of materials (Fertilizer, Grass Seed and Ice melt). Materials
such as Powder, Manure, Top Soil, Gravel, and Mulch have the wrong physical characteristics and
should not be used with your spreader
3. Do not use spreader on windy days when spreading grass seed or herbicides.
4. Determine approximate square footage of the area to be covered and estimate amount of material
required. Please refer to fertilizer manufacturer’s recommendation. Break up any lumpy fertilizer as
you fill the hopper.
5. Before filling the hopper, make sure that the flow control lever is in the“0”position and the flow control
plate is closed.
6. Set the adjustable stop with the flow control lever always in the“0”position. Every time you are ready
to stop or turn back, close the flow control plate to stop dispersing the material and continue one more
stride. This reduces waste and avoids damaging the lawn with oversaturated product coverage.
7. Follow fertilizer manufacturer’s recommended coverage rate for each product
8. To maintain the same coverage when walking at a different speed, adjust the flow rate. Reduce the
flow setting for slower speeds and increase the flow setting for higher speeds.
9. Keep the impeller plate horizontal when operating the spreader. Tilting the spreader will result in
uneven coverage.
10. Make sure the R pin is installed in the hopper before starting the spreader.
11. Always start walking prior to opening the closure plate.
12. Always close the flow control plate before turning or stopping the spreader.
13. If spreading material 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.
14. To insure consistent coverage, make sure each broadcast pattern slightly overlaps the previous
broadcast pattern.
15. When broadcasting spreading material, make sure the broadcast pattern does not hit evergreen trees,
flowers or shrubs.
16. Do not over apply spreading material. Follow the recommended coverage rate for each product. Over
application will lead to lawn damage and contamination.
- 13 -
Operation Instructions
Adjust the Bracket.
1. You can move the handle to adjust the spreader setting and follow the direction of the arrowhead. When
then handle moves to 30, the adjustable plate is fully open, when it goes to 0, it’s fully closed.
- 14 -
Operation Instructions
CONSISTENT COVERAGE
To insure consistent coverage, make sure each broadcast pattern slightly overlaps the previous broadcast
pattern as shown in figure below. The approximate broadcast widths for different materials are shown in
the application chart.
WARNING
Do not over apply spreading material. Follow the recommended coverage rate for each product. Over
application will lead to damage and contamination. If spreading material accidentally hits or deposits to
heavily, soak the area thoroughly with a garden hose or sprinkler to prevent burning.
- 15 -
SPREADING INSTRUCTIONS
CALCULATING AMOUNT OF MATERIAL NEEDED
To calculate the amount of fertilizer you will need to cover your lawn, divide the coverage amount listed on
the label by the weight of the fertilizer bag. For example a 10LB. bag of fertilizer with coverage of 10,000
square feet will distribute 1LB. of fertilizer every 1,000 square feet at full rate or 1/2LB. of fertilizer every
1,000 square feet at half rate. For pre-calculated rates see Chart A (Example: 25LB. bag with 15,000 sq. ft.
coverage = 1.7LB./1,000 sq. ft.). Use Chart B to find the closest spreader setting (Example: 1.7LB./1000
sq. ft. = Spreader Setting of 8).
