11/29/18
!
Look for the Safety Alert Symbol
The SAFETY ALERT SYMBOL indicates there is a
potential hazard to personal safety involved and extra
safety precaution must be taken. When you see this
symbol, be alert and carefully read the message that
follows it. In addition to design and configuration of
equipment, hazard control, and accident prevention are
dependent upon the awareness, concern, prudence, and
proper training of personnel involved in the operation,
transport, maintenance, and storage of equipment.
Be Aware of
Signal Words
A signal word designates a degree or
level of hazard seriousness. The
signal words are:
! DANGER
Indicates a hazardous situation that, if
not avoided, will result in death or
serious injury.
Safety Precautions for
Children
Tragedy can occur if the operator
is not alert to the presence of
children. Children generally are
attracted to implements and their
work.
 Never assume children will remain
where you last saw them.
 Keep children out of the work area
and under the watchful eye of a
responsible adult.
 Be alert and shut the implement
and tractor down if children enter
the work area.
 Never carry children on the tractor
or implement. There is not a safe
place for them to ride. They may
fall off and be run over or interfere
with the control of the power
machine.
 Never allow children to operate the
power machine, even under adult
supervision.
 Never allow children to play on the
power machine or implement.
 Use extra caution when backing
up. Before the tractor starts to
move, look down and behind to
make sure the area is clear.
! WARNING
Indicates a hazardous situation that, if
not avoided, could result in death or
serious injury.
! CAUTION
Indicates a hazardous situation that, if
not avoided, may result in minor or
moderate injury.
Tractor Shutdown & Storage
 If engaged, disengage power
take-off.
 Park on solid, level ground and
lower implement to ground or onto
support blocks.
 Put tractor in park or set park
brake, turn off engine, and remove
switch key to prevent unauthorized
starting.
 Relieve all hydraulic pressure to
auxiliary hydraulic lines.
 Wait for all components to stop
before leaving operator’s seat.

Tire Safety
Transport Safely
 Tire changing can be dangerous
and must be performed by
trained personnel using the
correct tools and equipment.
 Always maintain correct tire
pressure. Do not inflate tires
above recommended pressures
shown in the Operator’s Manual.
 When inflating tires, use a clip-on
chuck and extension hose long
enough to allow you to stand to
one side and NOT in front of or
over the tire assembly. Use a
safety cage if available.
 Securely support the implement
when changing a wheel.
 When removing and installing
wheels, use wheel handling
equipment adequate for the
weight involved.
 Make sure wheel bolts have been
tightened to the specified torque.
 Comply with federal, state, and
local laws.
 Use towing vehicle and trailer of
adequate size and capacity. Secure
equipment towed on a trailer with
tie downs and chains.
 Sudden braking can cause a towed
trailer to swerve and upset. Reduce
speed if towed trailer is not
equipped with brakes.
 Avoid contact with any overhead
utility lines or electrically charged
conductors.
 Always drive with load on end of
loader arms low to the ground.
 Always drive straight up and down
steep inclines with heavy end of a
tractor with loader attachment on
the “uphill” side.
Use A Safety Chain
Practice Safe Maintenance
 A safety chain will help control
drawn machinery should it
separate from the tractor drawbar.
 Use a chain with the strength
rating equal to or greater than the
gross weight of the towed
implement.
 Attach the chain to the tractor
drawbar support or other specified
anchor location. Allow only
enough slack in the chain to
permit turning.
 Always hitch the implement to the
machine towing it. Do not use the
safety chain to tow the implement.
 Understand procedure before doing
work. Refer to the Operator’s Manual
for additional information.
 Work on a level surface in a clean
dry area that is well-lit.
 Lower implement to the ground and
follow all shutdown procedures
before leaving the operator’s seat to
perform maintenance.
 Do not work under any hydraulic
supported equipment. It can settle,
suddenly leak down, or be lowered
accidentally. If it is necessary to work
under the equipment, securely
support it with stands or suitable
blocking beforehand.
 Use properly grounded electrical
outlets and tools.
 Use correct tools and equipment for
the job that are in good condition.
 Allow equipment to cool before
working on it.
 Engage park brake when stopped
on an incline.
 Maximum transport speed for an
attached equipment is 20 mph. DO
NOT EXCEED. Never travel at a
speed which does not allow
adequate control of steering and
stopping. Some rough terrains
require a slower speed.
 As a guideline, use the following
maximum speed weight ratios for
attached equipment:
20 mph when weight of attached
equipment is less than or equal
to the weight of machine towing
the equipment.
10 mph when weight of attached
equipment exceeds weight of
machine towing equipment but
not more than double the weight.
 IMPORTANT: Do not tow a load
that is more than double the weight
of the vehicle towing the load.
 Disconnect battery ground cable (-)
before servicing or adjusting
electrical systems or before welding
on equipment.
 Inspect all parts. Make certain parts
are in good condition & installed
properly.
 Replace parts on this implement
with genuine Land Pride parts only.
Do not alter this implement in a way
which will adversely affect its
performance.
 Do not grease or oil implement while
it is in operation.
 Remove buildup of grease, oil, or
debris.
 Always make sure any material and
waste products from the repair and
maintenance of the implement are
properly collected and disposed.
 Remove all tools and unused parts
before operation.
11/29/18
Important Safety Information
Listed below are common practices that may or may not be applicable to the products
described in this manual.
Prepare for Emergencies
 Be prepared if a fire starts.
 Keep a first aid kit and fire
extinguisher handy.
 Keep emergency numbers for
doctor, ambulance, hospital, and
fire department near phone.
911
Wear Personal Protective
Equipment (PPE)
Avoid High
Pressure Fluids Hazard
 Wear protective clothing and
equipment appropriate for the job
such as safety shoes, safety
glasses, hard hat, and ear plugs.
 Clothing should fit snug without
fringes and pull strings to avoid
entanglement with moving parts.
 Prolonged exposure to loud noise
can cause hearing impairment or
hearing loss. Wear suitable
hearing protection such as
earmuffs or earplugs.
 Operating equipment safely
requires the operator’s full
attention. Avoid wearing
headphones while operating
equipment.
 Escaping fluid under pressure can
penetrate the skin causing serious
injury.
 Relieve all residual pressure
before disconnecting hydraulic
lines or performing work on the
hydraulic system.
 Make sure all hydraulic fluid
connections are tight and all
hydraulic hoses and lines are in
good condition before applying
pressure to the system.
 Use a piece of paper or
cardboard, NOT BODY PARTS, to
check for suspected leaks.
 Wear protective gloves and safety
glasses or goggles when working
with hydraulic systems.
 DO NOT DELAY. If an accident
occurs, see a doctor familiar with
this type of injury immediately. Any
fluid injected into the skin or eyes
must be treated within
a few hours or
gangrene may
result.
Use Seat Belt and ROPS
Handle
Chemicals Properly
Use Safety
Lights and Devices
 Slow moving tractors and selfpropelled machines can create a
hazard when driven on public
roads. They are difficult to see,
especially at night. Use the Slow
Moving Vehicle (SMV) sign when
on public roads.
 Flashing warning lights and turn
signals are recommended
whenever driving on public roads.
Keep Riders Off Machinery
 Never carry riders on tractor or
implement.
 Riders obstruct operator’s view and
interfere with the control of the
power machine.
 Riders can be struck by objects or
thrown from the equipment.
 Never use tractor or implement to
lift or transport riders.
11/29/18
 Land Pride recommends the use
of a CAB or roll-over-protectivestructures (ROPS) and seat belt
in almost all power machines.
Combination of a CAB or ROPS
and seat belt will reduce the risk
of serious injury or death if the
power machine should be upset.
 If ROPS is in the locked-up
position, fasten seat belt snugly
and securely to help protect
against serious injury or death
from falling and machine overturn.
 Protective clothing should be
worn.
 Handle all chemicals with care.
 Follow instructions on container
label.
 Agricultural chemicals can be
dangerous. Improper use can
seriously injure persons, animals,
plants, soil, and property.
 Inhaling smoke from any type of
chemical fire is a serious health
hazard.
 Store or dispose of unused
chemicals as specified by the
chemical manufacturer.

Section 5: Driveline Assembly & Set-Up
IMPORTANT: The drive unit, tractor and driveline
can be damaged if driveline is installed improperly.
Be certain to follow all installation instructions.
IMPORTANT: Always check driveline length for
each different tractor the spreader is attached. An
additional driveline may be required when more than
on tractor is used.
IMPORTANT: The driveline must be lubricated
before putting it into service. Refer to “Lubrication”
on page 43.
IMPORTANT: Some tractors are equipped with
multi-speed power take-off ranges. Be certain your
tractor’s power take-off is set for 540 rpm.
IMPORTANT: The tractor’s power take-off shaft and
spreader drive unit shaft must be level with each
other to obtain the shortest distance between the
two shafts.

Figure 5-2
Driveline Installation
! DANGER
To avoid serious injury or death:
• Do not engage power take-off while hooking-up or
unhooking the driveline, or while someone is standing near
the driveline. A person’s body and/or clothing can become
entangled in the driveline.
• All guards and shields must be installed and in good
working condition while operating the implement.
• Do not use a power take-off adapter. The adapter will
increase strain on the tractor’s power take-off shaft causing
possible damage to shaft and driveline. It will also defeat
the purpose of the tractor’s power take-off shield.
! WARNING
To avoid serious injury or death:
• Always shut tractor down using “Tractor Shutdown
Procedure” provided in this manual before dismounting
tractor.
• Do not operate a broken or bent driveline. Such a driveline
will break apart while rotating at high speeds and can cause
serious injury or death. Always remove the implement from
use until the damaged driveline can be repaired or replaced.

Transporting
! WARNING
To avoid serious injury or death:
• When traveling on roadways, travel in such a way that
other vehicles may pass you safely. Use LED lights, clean
reflectors, and a slow moving vehicle sign that is visible
from the back to warn operators in other vehicles of your
presence. Always comply with all federal, state, and local
laws.
• Select a safe ground speed when transporting. Never travel
at a speed which does not allow adequate control of steering
and stopping, and never exceed 20 mph (32.2 km/h) with
attached equipment. Rough terrain requires a slower speed.
! CAUTION
To avoid minor or moderate injury:
Empty hopper before transporting from site to site especially
when transporting on public roads.
IMPORTANT: Do not travel long distances with
product in hopper or carry bags stacked on top of
product in hopper. Doing so will cause product to
compress resulting in improper discharge.
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Make sure power take-off is disengaged before
transporting from one location to another.
Be sure to reduce tractor ground speed when
turning; and leave enough clearance so that the
spreader does not contact obstacles such as
buildings, trees or fences.
Select a safe ground speed when transporting from
one area to another. When traveling on roadways,
transport in such a way that faster moving vehicles
may pass you safely.
When traveling over rough or hilly terrain, shift tractor
to a lower gear.

Leveling & Setting Spreader Height
1. Locate tractor and spreader on a flat level surface.
2. Lower spreader down to approximately 6" (15 cm) off
the ground.
3. Engage tractor park brake or place tractor gearshift in
park position, shut tractor engine off and remove key
before dismounting from tractor.
Refer to Figure 5-1 on page 20:
4. Manually adjust either one of both of the tractor’s
lower 3-point arms up or down until they are both an
equal distance off the ground at the hitch pins.
5. Manually adjust tractor’s top center link until
spreader is parallel to the ground from front to back
as follows:
• PFS4000:
•
Measure from top of hopper cone at the front and
back to ground. Adjust tractor’s top center link until
these two measurements are equal.
PFS5060 & 8010: Refer to Figure 7-1 on page 30:
Measure from bottom of hopper support ring at the
front and back to ground. Adjust tractor’s top
center link until these two measurements are
equal. See Important Note below.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT take parallel measurements
from top of hopper extensions to the ground as they
are not always equal in height front to back.
6. Raise spreader off the ground until bottom of spout
end is 29 1/2" (75 cm) off the ground. Set tractor lift
stop at this height.
NOTE: DEPENDING ON THE TRACTOR, your
spreader may not be able to level out and obtain the
29 1/2" (75 cm) spout height. Land Pride
recommends keeping unit level with spreader at its
highest possible position. Heights lower than 29 1/2"
(75 cm) will effect spread width slightly. Adjust
application pattern to keep half the spread width of
material being spread.
7.
Verify spreader is parallel to the ground with bottom
of spout end 29 1/2" (75 cm) off the ground. If not,
repeat steps 5-7.

IMPORTANT: Maximum safe travel speed will be
determined by ground conditions and tractor size.
8. Use “English Spreader Chart” on page 37 or
“Metric Spreader Chart” on page 41 to determine
travel speed (mph or km/h, quantity of material
dispersed (lbs/acre or kg/hectare), and regulation
bar setting. For instructions on how to set the
regulation bar, see “Regulation Bar (English
System)” on page 34 or “Regulation Bar (Metric
System)” on page 38.
9. Check discharge gate to make sure it opens and
closes properly. End check by fully closing the gate.
10. Follow instructions under “Load Hopper with
Product” on this page. Fill hopper with precise
amount of product needed to cover one acre or one
hectare.
11. Make a test run traveling at the speed you intend to
apply product while dispersing it over a pre-marked
acre/hectare to verify if any additional adjustments
need to be made.
12. Make a measurement of the spread pattern to be
used later when applying product on the field.

compression and settling of product in hopper.
Stop tractor with Pendulum Spreader on a hard level
surface before filling hopper.
Make sure power take-off is disengaged and
stopped. Lower spreader completely down until it is
resting on the ground.
Engage park brake, shut engine off and remove
ignition key before dismounting from tractor.
Make certain driveline has not come apart in the
middle or loose from the tractor and drive unit shafts.
Make certain the gate is fully closed.
NOTE: Land Pride recommends filling hopper with
a mechanical device rather than filling hopper
manually.

Effective Spread Width
Refer to Figure 7-2:
The spread pattern of the Pendulum Spreader takes the
shape of a pyramid. That is to say, the distribution is
heaviest directly behind the spreader and steadily
decreases the farther away the product is thrown. This
decreasing pattern is approximately equal on the left and
right side. To achieve an even amount of spreading over
the surface of the ground, the tractor and spreader
should travel parallel to the previous path at a distance
equal to 1/2 the overall spread width away from the first
path. This distance is known as the “Effective Spread
Width”. It is recommended that a GPS or markers be used
to control the path the tractor will travel.
W = Overall Spread Width
W/2 = Effective Spread Width (1/2 Overall Spread Width)

Field Application
Refer to Figure 7-3:
IMPORTANT: Always disengage power take-off
before fully closing the discharge gate. Running
power take-off with gate closed can crush product,
break drive unit components and break or bend the
regulation bar.
IMPORTANT: When manually opening discharge
gate, hold gate lever in the open position until power
take-off is running. Release grip of lever slowly.
NOTE: Do not travel long distances with product in
the hopper or carry fertilizer bags stacked on top of
product in the hopper. Both situations will cause
fertilizer to compress and settle in the hopper
resulting in improper discharge rate.

Be sure hopper discharge rate is set and spreader is
at the application site before filling the hopper.
Start tractor #1 in a field corner at a distance equal to
(W/2) away from the field edge.
Maintain this half distance from the field edge as you
travel around the complete perimeter of the field.
When approaching starting point, turn tractor #2
when at distance (W/2) away from the first run and
travel parallel to the first run until the tractor #3 is at
distance (W/2) away from perimeter run.
Turn tractor and drive forward until at distance (W/2)
away from the last run and then turn the tractor #4
again to head back across the field.
Continue back parallel to the previous run until
tractor #5 is again at distance (W/2) away from
perimeter run.
Continue this back and forth pattern (2 to 3, 4 to 5,
6 to 7 etc.) until field plot has been covered.

Unhook the Pendulum Spreader
General Operating Instructions
Unhook Pendulum Spreader from the tractor as follows:
By now you should have properly hitched your Land
Pride Pendulum Spreader to your tractor. Based on the
type of material and pounds per acre or kilograms per
hectare you intend to broadcast, you should have
referred to the “English Spreader Chart” on page 37 or
“Metric Spreader Chart” on page 41 to determine the
proper tractor ground speed, distribution gate opening,
and spread pattern setting for your spreader. This
process of taking prescribed fertilizer or seed label rates
and making the necessary spreader adjustments is
called “initial calibration”.
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
Empty hopper of product and thoroughly clean
spreader before unhooking spreader from tractor.
Park spreader on a level solid hard surface.
Lower spreader to level ground or onto blocks
supporting the spreader just above ground level.
Engage tractor park brake, shut tractor engine off
and remove key before dismounting from tractor.
Disconnect driveline from tractor power take-off shaft
Unhook 3-point hitch from tractor. Reinstall hitch
pins, linchpins and hairpin cotters in the spreader
hitch.
Support driveline off the ground to keep dirt out of the
u-joints.
When setting your spreader up for initial calibration,
following the chemical or seed supplier’s label directions
and using the manufacturer’s application rate setting
charts is highly encouraged. Once you have achieved
your initial calibration, it is time to make “final calibration”
adjustments.
Travel to the area with tractor and hopper where
chemicals or seed are to be applied. Measure off a test
area. An acre is preferred. Measure out exactly enough
product to cover an acre at the manufacturer’s prescribed
rate and put it in the hopper. You should have already
determined the appropriate ground speed that will allow
you to meet the application rate. Start tractor and open
distribution gate just as you move onto the plot traveling
at proper ground and engine speed. Look back often to
observe your distribution width and pattern density.
Typically the pattern won’t be as dense on the outer
edges. As you make your turn for an adjacent pass,
adjust your travel path to achieve uniform overlap and
pattern density. (See “Effective Spread Width” on
page 32.) You may need to close and open the
distribution gate at the beginning and ending of each
pass. Your hopper should empty out just as you complete
coverage of your one-acre plot. If not, make the
necessary adjustments until you are absolutely confident
that you have achieved the proper final calibration.
Once you have achieved final calibration, load the
spreader hopper with the appropriate amount of material
to be spread. Do not overload hopper with more weight
than is specified for your individual model. If the tractor
front end becomes too light for proper steering, add
tractor weights to the front end. Proceed with spreading
operations looking back often to ensure a uniform
distribution pattern and to make sure there are no
interruptions to hopper flow.
With a little practice you should become a very good
applicator. Once you are done spreading, park the
tractor, set the brake, shut off the tractor, and remove the
keys. When finished, always clean out the spreader to
prevent rust and corrosion.

English System of Measurements
The following discussions use the English system of
measurements. For Metrics, refer to “Metric System of
Measurements” on page 38.
Spout Swing Angle (English System)
Refer to Figure 8-1:
The drive unit can be set to spread products at three
different spread widths by adjusting spout swing angle to
48o (Min), 52o (Mid), or 56o (Max). When adjusted, the
standard spout will spread product an effective width of
20 & 39 feet (Min), 30 & 43 feet (Mid), and 39 & 46 feet
(Max). Reduce tractor power take-off speed to decrease
effective spread width or change the standard spout to an
optional spout. Adjust spout swing as follows:
1. Remove angle adjustment cover (#1) from drive unit.
2. Rotate flywheel (#3) at the input shaft until wing nut
cover (#2) is in alignment with opening.
3. Unscrew wing nut cover (#2) and remove.
4. Align tabs on angle adjustment key (#6) with notches
in notched retaining ring (#4).
5. Press angle adjustment key (#6) in and turn angle
adjustment ring with square insert (#4) to the desired
pendulum swinging width (Max., Mid., or Min.).
6. Align key tabs with notches in retaining ring and
remove angle adjustment key(#6). Make certain
angle adjustment ring (#4) is against notched
retaining ring (#5).
IMPORTANT: Make certain angle adjustment
ring (#4) is against notched retaining ring (#5) before
installing covers (#1 & #2). The drive unit housing
and adjustment ring assembly will break if angle
adjustment ring (#4) did not returned after removing
angle adjustment key (#6) and will void the warranty.
7. Replace wing nut cover (#2). Hand tighten only.
8. Snap angle adjustment cover (#1) in drive housing.
Regulation Bar (English System)
The following must be met to adjust regulation bar.
• Tractor power take-off speed is at 540 rpm.
• The standard pendulum spout is attached.
• The spout is parallel to ground surface.
• The spout discharge end is 29 1/2" above ground.
Adjust regulation bar as follows:
1.
In the “English Spreader Chart” on page 37, locate
material to be spread and lbs/acre at a given travel
speed. If “English Spreader Chart” is not
applicable, see “Slide Ruler Calibration (English
System)” instructions on page 36.
2. In the “English Spreader Chart” on page 37, find
regulation bar setting at required lbs/acre and set
adjusting nut at this setting. Regulation bar is
illustrated in Figure 8-2 on page 35.

3. Verify angle adjustment ring on the drive unit has
been set to the preferred Min, Mid, or Max setting.
• See “English Spreader Chart” on page 37 to
determine spout swing angle (Min, Mid, or Max)
• See “Spout Swing Angle (English System)” on
this page to adjust spout swing angle.
4. Park tractor with product in the spreader and
pendulum spout attached on a level surface with end
of pendulum spout 29 1/2" off the ground.
5. Place gearshift in park position, open discharge gate
and commence to operate spreader at 540 rpm for
one to two seconds.
6. Disengage power take-off, shut tractor engine off,
remove switch key and wait for power take-off to stop
rotating before dismounting from tractor.
7. Measure distance (overall spread width) product was
thrown from left to right. Divide overall spread width
by 2 to get the effective spread width. Record
effective spread width in feet for reuse.
8. If effective spread width in step 7 is different than that
provided in the “English Spreader Chart” on page
37, then reset adjusting nut as follows:
a. Use “Slide Ruler Calibration (English System)”
instructions on page 36 to calculate new
discharge rate in lbs/min.
11/29/18
Table of Contents
Section 8: Adjustments
b. Find lbs/min in the “English Spreader Chart” on
page 37 under material being distributed that is
equal to or closest to the calculated lbs/min.
c. Refer to Figure 8-2: Adjust regulation adjusting
nut to this new setting.
9. There are several different Calibration methods to
verify the regulation bar is set correctly. They are
Stationary Calibration, Field Calibration, and Slide
Ruler Calibration. The Slide Ruler Calibration is a tool
to assist Stationary and Field Calibrations. See
instructions for Stationary Calibration or Field
Calibration on this page.
Stationary Calibration (English System)
The pendulum spreader can be accurately calibrated
without making a field test. With this method, knowledge
of the effective spread width, 5 gallon bucket, weigh
scales and clock are need to calibrate the spreader.

with step 2.
Remove spout by removing the 2 bolts and nuts
connecting the spout to the spreader.
Position a bucket under the spreader to catch
discharged material.
Restart tractor, set power take-off speed at 540 rpm
and open discharge gate for only 1 minute and then
close gate.
Disengage power take-off, shut tractor engine off,
remove switch key and wait for power take-off to stop
rotating before dismounting from tractor.
Weigh material discharged into the bucket.
Compare pounds of material in the bucket to
lbs/min in the “English Spreader Chart” on page 37
or to the “Slide Ruler Calibration (English System)”
on page 36. Pounds of material in the bucket and lbs/
min should be the same.
Refer to Figure 8-2: If weight of material in the bucket
does not equal lbs/min readjust regulation adjusting
nut to increase or decrease discharge rate and repeat
steps 3 to 7 until required discharged rate in lbs/min
is obtained.
• Adjust regulation adjusting nut to a higher number
will increase discharge rate.
• Adjust regulation adjusting nut to a lower number
will decrease discharge rate.
Field Calibration (English System)
The spreader can be calibrated in the field in one acre
plots with the assistance of the “English Spreader
Chart” on page 37.

Complete “Regulation Bar (English System)”
instructions on page 34 before continuing with step 2
below.
Mark out one acre the tractor will travel over.
Remember to use effective spread width when
calculating the acre.
Example:
a. Say overall spread width is 80 feet. Divide 80 by 2
for an effective spread width of 40.
b. One acre equals 43,560 sq ft.
43,560 divided by 40 = 1,089 ft of travel distance
c. The tractor will need to travel 1,089 ft to cover one
acre.
Fill hopper with precise amount of material in pounds
to cover one acre.
Make a test run dispersing product while traveling
over the pre-marked acre at the required ground
speed with engine rpm speed set at 540 power takeoff speed.
Refer to Figure 8-2: If hopper emptied too soon or if
hopper still has material in it after covering one acre,
readjust regulation adjusting nut to increase or
decrease discharge rate and repeat steps 2 to 4 until
required discharged rate is obtained.
• Adjust regulation adjusting nut to a higher number
will increase discharge rate.
• Adjust regulation adjusting nut to a lower number
will decrease discharge rate.
Adjust regulation adjusting nut on the regulation bar to the correct setting value.

Section 8: Adjustments
Slide Ruler Calibration (English
System)
Refer to Figure 8-3:
The quantity of product being spread is controlled by the
regulation bar, effective spread width and ground speed.
It is necessary to use the Slide Ruler when effective
spread width or lbs/acre is different than what is found in
the “English Spreader Chart” on page 37. The Slide
Ruler is developed to calibrate discharge rates under the
following conditions:
• Tractor power take-off speed is 540 rpm.
• The standard pendulum spout is attached.
• The spout is parallel to ground surface.
• The distance between the spout discharge end and
ground is 29 1/2".
IMPORTANT: Before using the Slide Ruler, make
sure the inner slide is oriented correctly. When the
Slide Ruler is held with English System facing up
and the inner slide is pulled part-way out to the right,
you should be able to read ft in the upper right
corner of the inner slide. If not, pull inner slid out and
reinsert with ft marking in the upper right corner.
1.
Make sure “ft” marking is in the upper right corner of
the inner slide is showing when Slide Ruler is
oriented as shown with English System facing up.
2. Locate on the Slide Ruler effective spread width in
feet.
Example:
Say 40 feet is the effective spread width in the test
run. Locate 40 on the Slide Ruler.
3. Determine amount of product (lbs/acre) to be
distributed and adjust Slide Ruler until that amount is
aligned with the effective spread width.
Example:
Say 110 lbs/acre is the distribution rate. Adjust inner
slide until 110 lbs/acre is aligned with 40 feet.
4. Locate on the Slide Ruler tractor travel speed in mph
(miles per hour). Read and record discharge rate
given below travel speed in lbs/min.
Example:
Say the tractor will travel 4 mph. Locate 4 mph on the
Slide Ruler and read the given 35 lbs/min under the
travel speed.
Refer to English Spreader Chart on page 37:
5. Locate lbs/min for the particular product to be spread
in the “English Spreader Chart” on page 37.
Example:
Say product is Prills at 35 lbs/min Find for Prills that
35 lbs/min requires the regulation bar be set a 18.
Refer to Figure 8-2 on page 35:
6. Set adjusting nut to 18.
Example:
Adjust regulation adjusting nut until front edge of nut
is even with the number 18 on the regulation bar.
1. Verify inner slide is oriented with “ft” facing up
2. Locate effective spread width of product.
3. Adjust Slide Ruler to lbs/acre.
4. Locate tractor traveling speed in mph
5. Read & record lbs/min.
6. Locate lbs/min for the particular product being spread in the “English Spreader Chart” on page 37.
7. Read and record regulation bar setting provided in "English Spreader Chart".

Metric System of Measurements
The following discussions use the Metric system of
measurements. For English, see “English System of
Measurements” on page 34.
Spout Swing Angle (Metric System)
Refer to Figure 8-4:
The drive unit can be set to spread products at three
different spread widths by adjusting spout swing angle to
48o (Min), 52o (Mid), or 56o (Max). When adjusted, the
standard spout will spread product an effective width of
6 & 12 meters (Min), 9 & 13 meters (Mid), and 12 & 14
meters (Max). Reduce tractor power take-off speed to
decrease effective spread width or change the standard
spout to an optional spout. Adjust spout swing as follows:
1. Remove angle adjustment cover (#1) from drive unit.
2. Rotate flywheel (#3) at the input shaft until wing nut
cover (#2) is in alignment with opening.
3. Unscrew wing nut cover (#2) and remove.
4. Align tabs on angle adjustment key (#6) with notches
in notched retaining ring (#4).
5. Press angle adjustment key (#6) in and turn angle
adjustment ring with square insert (#4) to the desired
pendulum swinging width (Max., Mid., or Min.).
6. Align key tabs with notches in retaining ring and
remove angle adjustment key(#6). Make certain
angle adjustment ring (#4) is against notched
retaining ring (#5).

8. Snap angle adjustment cover (#1) in drive housing.
Regulation Bar (Metric System)
The following must be met to adjust regulation bar.
• Tractor power take-off speed is at 540 rpm.
• The standard pendulum spout is attached.
• The spout is parallel to ground surface.
• The spout discharge end is 75 cm above ground.
Adjust regulation bar as follows:
1.
In the “Metric Spreader Chart” on page 41, locate
material to be spread and Kilograms / hectare at a
given travel speed. If “Metric Spreader Chart” is not
applicable, see “Slide Ruler Calibration (Metric
System)” instructions on page 40.
2. In the “Metric Spreader Chart” on page 41, find
regulation bar setting at required kg/ha and set
adjusting nut at this setting. Regulation bar is
illustrated in Figure 8-5 on page 39.

3. Verify angle adjustment ring on the drive unit has
been set to the preferred Min, Mid, or Max setting.
• See “Metric Spreader Chart” on page 41 to
determine spout swing angle (Min, Mid, or Max)
• See “Spout Swing Angle (Metric System)” on
this page to adjust spout swing angle.
4. Park tractor with product in the spreader and
pendulum spout attached on a level surface with end
of pendulum spout 75 cm off the ground.
5. Place gearshift in park position, open discharge gate
and commence to operate spreader at 540 rpm for
one to two seconds.
6. Disengage power take-off, shut tractor engine off,
remove switch key and wait for power take-off to stop
rotating before dismounting from tractor.
7. Measure distance (overall spread width) product was
thrown from left to right. Divide overall spread width
by 2 to get the effective spread width. Record
effective spread width in feet for reuse.
8. If effective spread width in step 7 is different than that
provided in the “Metric Spreader Chart” on page 41,
then reset adjusting nut as follows:
a. Use “Slide Ruler Calibration (English System)”
instructions on page 36 to calculate new
discharge rate in kg/min.
11/29/18
Table of Contents
Section 8: Adjustments
b. Find kg/min. in the “Metric Spreader Chart”
under material being distributed equal to or
closest to the calculated kg/min.
c. Refer to Figure 8-5: Adjust regulation adjusting
nut to this new setting.
9. There are several different Calibration methods to
verify the regulation bar is set correctly. They are
Stationary Calibration, Field Calibration, and Slide
Ruler Calibration. The Slide Ruler Calibration is a
tool to assist Stationary and Field Calibrations. See
instructions for Stationary Calibration or Field
Calibration on this page.
Stationary Calibration (Metric System)
The pendulum spreader can be accurately calibrated
without making a field test. With this method, knowledge
of the effective spread width, 18 liter bucket, weigh scales
and clock are need to calibrate the spreader.

Complete “Regulation Bar (Metric System)”
instructions on page 34 before continuing with
step 2.
Remove spout by removing the 2 bolts and nuts
connecting the spout to the spreading unit.
Position a bucket under the spreader to catch
discharged material.
Restart tractor, set power take-off speed at 540 rpm
and open discharge gate for only 1 minute and then
close gate.
Disengage power take-off, shut tractor engine off,
remove switch key and wait for power take-off to stop
rotating before dismounting from tractor.
Weigh material discharged into the bucket.
Compare kilograms of material in the bucket to
kg/min in the “Metric Spreader Chart” on page 41 or
to the “Slide Ruler Calibration (Metric System)” on
page 40. Kilograms of material in the bucket and
kg/min should be the same.
Refer to Figure 8-5: If weight of material in the
bucket does not equal kg/min, readjust regulation
adjusting nut to increase or decrease discharge rate
and repeat steps 3-7 until required discharged rate in
kg/min is obtained.
• Adjust regulation adjusting nut to a higher number
will increase discharge rate.
• Adjust regulation adjusting nut to a lower number
will decrease discharge rate.
Field Calibration (Metric System)
The spreader can be calibrated in the field in one acre
plots with the assistance of the “Metric Spreader Chart”
on page 41.

5.
Complete “Regulation Bar (Metric System)” on
page 38 before continuing with step 2 below.
Mark out one hectare the tractor will travel over.
Remember to use effective spread width when
calculating the hectare.
Example:
a. Say overall spread width is 24 meters. Divide 24
by 2 for an effective spread width of 12.
b. One hectare equals 10,000 square meters.
10,000 divided by 12 = 833.3 meters of travel
distance
c. The tractor will need to travel 833.3 meters to
cover one hectare.
Fill hopper with precise amount of material in pounds
to cover one hectare.
Make a test run dispersing product while traveling
over the pre-marked hectare at the required ground
speed with engine rpm speed set at 540 power takeoff speed.
Refer to Figure 8-5: If hopper emptied too soon or if
hopper still has material in it after covering one acre,
readjust regulation adjusting nut to increase or
decrease discharge rate and repeat steps 2-4 until
required discharged rate is obtained.
• Adjust regulation adjusting nut to a higher number
will increase discharge rate.
• Adjust regulation adjusting nut to a lower number
will decrease discharge rate.
Adjust regulation adjusting nut on the regulation bar to the correct setting value.

Section 8: Adjustments
Slide Ruler Calibration (Metric System)
Refer to Figure 8-6:
The quantity of product being spread is controlled by the
regulation bar, effective spread width and ground speed.
It is necessary to use the Slide Ruler when effective
spread width or kgs/hectare is different than what is found
in the “Metric Spreader Chart”. The Slide Ruler is
developed to calibrate discharge rates under the
following conditions:
• Tractor power take-off speed is 540 rpm.
• The standard pendulum spout is attached.
• The spout is parallel to ground surface.
• The distance between the spout discharge end and
ground is 75 cm.
IMPORTANT: Before using the Slide Ruler, make
sure the inner slide is oriented correctly. When the
Slide Ruler is held with Metric System facing up and
the inner slide is pulled part-way out to the right, you
should be able to read m in the upper right corner of
the inner slide. If not, pull inner slid out and reinsert
with m marking in the upper right corner.
1.
Make sure “m” marking is in the upper right corner of
the inner slide is showing when Slide Ruler is
oriented as shown with Metric System facing up.
2. Locate on the Slide Ruler effective spread width in
meters.
Example: Say 12 meters is the effective spread width
in the test run. Locate 12 on the Slide Ruler.
3. Determine amount of product (kg/hectare) to be
distributed and adjust Slide Ruler until that amount is
aligned with the effective spread width.
Example:
Say 128 kg/ha is the distribution rate. Adjust inner
slide until 128 lbs/acre is aligned with 12 meters.
4. Locate on the Slide Ruler tractor travel speed in
km/h (kilometers per hour). Read and record
discharge rate given below travel speed in kg/min.
Example:
Say the tractor will travel 10 km/h. Locate 10 km/h on
the Slide Ruler and read the given 25 kg/min. under
the travel speed.
Refer to Metric Spreader Chart on page 41:
5. Locate 25 kg/min for the particular product to be
spread in the “Metric Spreader Chart”.
Example:
Say product is Granular Fertilizer Fine at 25 kg/min.
Find for Granular Fertilizer Fine that 25 kg/min
requires that the regulation bar be set at 33.
Refer to Figure 8-5 on page 39:
6. Set adjusting nut to 33.
Example:
Adjust regulation adjusting nut until front edge of nut
is even with the number 33 on the bar.
1. Verify inner slide is oriented with “m” facing up.
2. Locate effective spread width of product.
4. Locate tractor traveling speed in km/h.
3. Adjust Slide Ruler to kg/ha
5. Read & record kg/min.
6. Locate kg/min for the particular product being spread in the “Metric Spreader Chart” on page 41.
7. Read and record regulation bar setting provided in "Metric Spreader Chart".
