If you are using a drop spreader, such as Scott`s Classic Drop Spreader, and using a Yard Mastery granular fertilizer, you will want to set your spreader at a 7.
The spreader constant is the number of sensor pulses divided by per cubic foot of material discharged per revolution (CFR).
Spreader calibration consists of two processes. First, the spread pattern must be adjusted to distribute the fertilizer particles uniformly. Second, the amount of fertilizer spread over the desired area must be measured and adjusted, if necessary, to equal the recommended application rate.
A broadcast spreader will take extra care to make sure different parts of the lawn receive an even coverage. A drop spreader, as previously mentioned, is more precise because it doesn`t broadcast the granular product or seed and doesn`t change the amount spread based on a changing walking pace.
In general, the smaller you set your spreader setting the smaller the hole and the slower the material releases from the hopper. There are many different brands of spreaders on the market, and, new or old, it is highly recommended to properly calibrate your spreader before the first use in the spring.
Calibrating a spreader involves measuring the product output of a spreader over a specific area so that it can continue to be reliably used. You may need a scale for weighing the material to accurately calibrate and measure product output. Place this amount in the spreader. Mark off the area.
According to Scotts, the Turf Builder Lawn Food (North) requires the drop spreader to be set at setting 7 for effective application.
Step 1: Remove the spreading disc from the gearbox shaft. Step 2: Choose the recommended shutter/aperture opening and let the fertiliser flow for one minute. Step 3: Weigh the caught fertiliser and compair the weight with the required amount (rate, speed and spread width) in the free calculator tool.

My Scotts 3000 spreader has a spring that closes the drop chute and it has broken. Is there a replacement spring available?

I have an older scotts drop spreader, called a precision flow control model and do not know what settings to use with the Scotts turf builder I have purchased.
The best way is to just place a small amount… like 5 lb in the hopper…start with it barely open and see how far you get,,, then compute from there what you need…
The settings they give you are guesamates at best and are often set to place too much… why not??? they are selling you a product!!
