What is the setting for a broadcast spreader?
We don't have the exact spreader setting for your model spreader. The easiest way to determine the correct setting for your needs is outlined below:
If you need to use 3lbs of product per 1,00 sq ft you would add 3 lb of product to spreader, start with a medium setting, then apply product to a 20 x 50 ft area (1,000 sq ft). If you have product left, your setting is too low. If you run out of product, your setting is too high. Typically if you walk at a normal pace and set the spreader at the middle setting, that is usually the right amount per 1000 square feet.
