Lesco Spreader Settings Letters To Numbers

Lesco Spreader Settings Letters To Numbers – The customer just gave me 2 scotts diffusers. Brand new in box. These are tense spreaders by homeowners but hey… free.

They are assembled and I calibrated them. Can’t find any information on their distribution rates. Does the number mean lbs/1000 sq ft? (1 = 1lbs/1000 sq ft, 5 = 5lbs/1000 sq ft, etc). After all, I think I have all the basic information and I can do the 10×10 tarp method.

Scott’s speedy green 2000 – Put it on the “2” setting. “Squeeze the trigger against the handle. The calibration line on the top of the trigger plate should line up with the rear edge of the magazine opening.” Or basically, pull the handle to open the hole and watch for a small line on the black opener to light up with the green container.

Scott’s grass builder edge guard DLX – set the spreader to “4”. A 9/13 drill bit should fit snugly/tightly inside the opening when the handle is pushed down.

These numbers are not how many pounds per 1,000. They are just a setting number. Some fertilizers will have the calibration number on the bag but more often than not you have to calibrate it yourself by marking an area and applying the fertilizer and then picking it up and weighing it to see how much you are putting down. There have been guides posted here to explain it in more depth.

Posted via mobile Click to expand… Exactly. I was hoping to calibrate (done) the spreaders using the Scotts method. So they would be like new from the factory. Then hopefully use the dial setting (hope it was lbs/1000) and then calibrate it with my fertilizers and compare how accurate the dial is/was.

Usually says on the bag what attitude to you. most of the time the setting is 3 or 3 1/2 on the dial.

My Speedy Green 3000 has lasted 14 years of heavy use, cheap HO model or not. I always use the setting # required on the bag. If it doesn’t have a setting number, I judge it by the size of the pellets compared to Scott’s products that show a number.

Click to expand… No, I’ve never tried it with Scott’s spreader because I use a lot of Scott’s products anyway, and the price is always on the bag, but most other ferts I use also show the setting number for Scott’s spreader because it’s so common. I can tell you this though, the numbers work out close to being 1K for each setting number.

I have been trying to determine the speed with my Earthway spreader. In the end I gave up because there are so many granules of different sizes with different densities, even from the same source, that I got the original sheet from Earthway which tells many about the setting for different brands of fert.

If you must use the spreaders that you obtained, then follow the spreader settings as described on the bag of material you intend to spread. You can dial it in precisely by knowing the size of the area you’re spreading and then adjust the flow rate depending on how much material you’re actually applying to that area.

If you’re supposed to apply 50 pounds of material to 9,000 square feet of lawn but you’re only covering 8,000 square feet, then you know you need to close the tank a notch or two. If you’re covering 12,000 sq ft with a 9,000 sq ft bag, you know you need to open the container a bit.

The most important thing is to keep records. Write down your actual spreader settings, the details of the material applied (annual ryegrass seed, Scott’s crabgrass preemergence 0-0-7, Scott’s Southern Turf Weed and Feed 29-0-10, etc), the approximate speed you were going, and the turf conditions (wet grass, just cut, just before it rained etc).

The reason for the journals is so that the next time you need to apply material to your lawn, you don’t have to guess what you did last time and have to start the calibration process all over again. You can also note down what works and what doesn’t.

If you spread Pre-em in early March but you notice crabgrass starting to emerge in mid-July, know that you need to apply another application of Pre-em about 2 to 3 weeks before you start to notice crabgrass sprouting. This of course relies on you being able to identify the different types of grass and weeds growing in your lawn.

What happens when you don’t use Scott’s products?! I prefer Hi-Yield and they have no setting for my spreader!

Click to expand… Then either calibrate the thing via the 10×10 tarp method or guess the setting (always better to guess low and have to walk the property twice instead of over applying some areas and falling short in other areas).

The next question I have is do you all think Scott’s product is superior to others and if so what makes them more superior I am considering using them but it doesn’t seem like the price is as good as other products when you go to use them in a commercial fashion IE not on your own lawn! I don’t have many clients who want to pay for something to do their garden
