Lesco Spreader Settings Numbers To Letters – A customer just gave me 2 Scott spreaders. Brand new in box. These are sprayers for home owners, but hey… free.

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

Scotts turf builder edge guard DLX – set spreader to “4”. The 9/13 bit should fit snugly/tightly inside the hole when the handle is pressed.

Those numbers aren’t how many pounds per 1000. They’re just an adjustment number. Some fertilizers will have a calibration number on the bag, but more often you will need to calibrate it yourself by marking an area and applying the fertilizer, then picking it up and weighing it to see how much you put in. There are guides posted here that explain it in more depth.

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

It usually says on the bag what your setting is. most of the time the setting is 3 or 3 1/2 on the wheel.

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

I tried to determine the amount with my Earthway spreader. I finally gave up since there are so many different size granules with different densities, even from the same source, that I got an original sheet from Earthway that tells many settings for different brands of fert.

If you must use the spreaders you purchased, follow the spreader settings as indicated on the bag of material you intend to spread. You can pinpoint it if you know the size of the area you’re spraying and then adjust the flow accordingly depending on how much material you’re actually applying to that area.

If you need 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 several times. If you’re covering 12,000 square feet with a 9,000 square foot bag, then you know you need to open up the tank a bit.

The most important thing is to keep records. Record actual spreader settings, details of material applied (annual ryegrass seed, Scotts crabgrass pre-emergence 0-0-7, Scotts Southern Turf Weed and Feed 29-0-10, etc.), approximate speed you walked, and turf conditions ( wet grass, freshly cut, just before rain, etc.).

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

If you spread Pre-em in early March, but notice crabgrass starting to emerge in mid-July, you’ll know you need to apply another Pre-em about 2 to 3 weeks before you start to notice crabgrass starting to sprout. This of course relies on your ability to recognize the different types of grass and weeds growing in your lawn.

I realized that after everything I have all the basic information so I can do the 10×10 tarp method. The two models are “Scotts speedy green 2000” and “Scotts turf builder edge guard DLX”. In case anyone else needs to calibrate using the Scotts method: Scotts speedy green 2000 – Put it on the “2” setting. “Press the trigger toward the handle. The calibration line on the top of the breech plate should line up with the rear edge of the magazine opening.” Or basically, pull the lever to open the hole and watch for the little line on the black opener to appear with the green container. Scotts turf builder edge guard DLX – set spreader to “4”. The 9/13 bit should fit snugly/tightly inside the hole when the handle is pressed.

The next question I have is do you all think Scotts product is better than others and if so what makes it superior? I’m thinking about using them but the prices don’t seem to be as good as other products when you use them in a commercial fashion ie not on your own lawn! I don’t have many buyers willing to pay for anything to build their yard
