Question about Craftsman Garden

I borrowed an older craftsman walk behind lawn spreader from my neighbor to apply Ace 5M crabgrass preventer. There is no model number on the spreader. It has settings from 2 to 16. What do these settings represent? Thank You, Tim

Well, they represent the size of the opening through which the product falls before hitting the spinning spreader part. A larger opening allows more product though; a smaller opening allows less.

I don't know if these are standardized across makes (I don't think they are). The best thing you could do would be to look in the hardware section next time you're in town and set a display model to the setting called for by your product (Scotts always lists the settings for their spreaders on their product), and then eyeball the size opening you get, then approximate that on your machine when you return home.

Or you can just pick the middle setting and do a test run and see if you think more or less should be applied, then adjust accordingly.

What setting is used to apply 1/4 lb per 100 sq ft?


BigVin, normally the bag of seed tell what setting to put spreader on for its proper application, If not try it on #4 setting, it all depend on how fast you wind and walk with a hand spreader. Good Luck.

I have a Scotts Turf Builder EdgeGuard Mini, and I'm using Ace turf builder (crabgrass preventer with fertilizer). What setting should I use???


I was just told by Scott's phone customer service (800-543-8873) that their TurfBuilder EdgeGuard mini can use the same settings as their "SpeedyGreen" broadcast spreader, if your fertilizer lists that one.

Republic EZ broadcast spreader...what number to use when lining up the mark to calibrate the spreader...lost the instruction book


Hello, to solve your question about what number to use to calibrate your broadcast spreader, please use the step-by-step instructions below:

1. If you don't already know the square footage of your lawn, please walk off or measure, multiplying the length by width. For example, my lawn is 100 ft wide by 100 ft long; this equals 10,000 sq. ft.
2. Use this figure (30,000 sq ft) to determine how much fertilizer, insecticide, fungicide,apply etc., to purchase and apply.
3. To calibrate the spreader for applying your product at the correct rate, first weigh and hold out an amount of product to cover a pre-determined test area; for example, enough for a 200 sq ft space.
4. Because most lawn fertilizers are packaged to cover areas in 1000 sq ft increments, it's easy to figure how many 1,000 sq ft applications you need for your lawn.
5. Set your spreader to 3 and measure 1/5 of the recommended application on your product, to cover a 200 sq ft area.
6. Use your spreader to cover this 200 sq ft area.
7. If there is product remaining in the hopper after walking this 200 sq ft area, increase the setting number and move to another test area, repeat steps 5 and 6.
8. If there wasn't enough product to cover the test area, back the number down, move to another test area, and repeat steps 5 and 6, until you finish with product and lawn test area at the same time.
9. Remember to never leave product in your hopper because many chemicals are corrosive and can destroy the moving parts, making the spreader inoperable.

I hope this helps!

Can I use my dlx spreader to apply lime? How do I figure the setting to use. My soil analysis calls for 50 lbs per 1000sqft.


Yes, lime can be applied in the in the Scotts DLX spreader. for a 50# per 1000 square foot application rate it is suggested to use a spreader setting on 7 on you model, and to walk over the same area three times. If you have any further questions feel free to contact Scotts @ 1-800-543-8873

Need to know the setting to put out Stagreen's crabex crabgrass preventer


If the product you are planning on applying has a spreader setting for a Scotts SpeedyGreen, or specifically for the SpeedyGreen 3000; you can that recommendation in your Edgeguard Deluxe Spreader. If they do not have a suggested spreader setting for the SpeedyGreen, or SpeedyGreen 3000 settings then this question would best be answered by calling Scotts directly @ 1-800-543-8873. One of our associates would be happy to assist you further.

How to use Ace Green Turf Spreader


At the bottom of the spreader hopper is a gate, there should be a setting lock that allows the opening to move only so far. This may be at the handle controls but unlikely.
To be sure of your spreader pattern and rate, use the spreader on a parking lot to see the pattern, you can always sweep up the granules and reuse them! Walking speed is the biggest factor in spreading rates.... Opening is the next....
