This hand-powered spreader holds up to 1,500 sq. ft. of Scotts lawn products or ice melt and is perfect for treating small areas.
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.
There are two types of broadcast spreaders: walk-behind and hand-held. All spreaders have a hopper to hold the product and an adjustable opening to control the volume of fertilizer or seed being distributed.
For more substantial areas—up to 15,000 square feet—the Scotts® Turf Builder® Edgeguard® DLX Broadcast Spreader, with its large hopper, is ideal. If you`re lucky enough to have an extra large lawn, use the Scotts® Elite Spreader. The hopper can hold enough product to cover 20,000 square feet.
Optimum Spreading Speed = 3mph Because most broadcast spreaders are wheel-driven, the speed at which you walk significantly affects the spread of the material.
With many different spreaders on the market, it can be difficult to know what setting to use – so we`ve done the hard work for you! For overseeding an existing lawn, we recommend a sowing rate of 35g per m2, and for sowing a new lawn from scratch we recommend a sowing rate of 50g per m2.
Drop spreaders tend to be a more accurate spreader. This is due to the fact that product is only released over the areas that it is rolled over. To coincide with this, drop spreaders spread more evenly than a broadcast spreader due to its spreading pattern.
While there are several types of broadcast spreaders available on the market they will all share the same size. Due to their size, broadcast spreaders are ideal for quickly covering large scale areas. The product material will disperse from the bottom, front, and side.
Rock salt or other crystal ice melts will work fine, but be careful to ensure that there is no moisture or else it will clump up and clog the opening. It is spring now and I recently used one of these spreaders to lay out some slug bait pellets and it worked beautifully.
DISADVANTAGES OF BROADCAST MEDIA

It takes a pretty penny to secure a spot on prime-time television and radio. It`s competitive and challenging to get the attention of decision-makers. It might be harder for new companies without street-cred to get featured.

Broadcasting implies one-way communication only. Hams expect to receive responses to their transmissions, thus the distinction. Transmitting implies an exchange of messages.

Many years ago I bought “shutes” that attached to each side of my Scotts drop spreader. They could be filled with ordinary flour and manually released with a handle on each of them so I could see the area that I “spread.” Is there any such product available for the Scotts Accugreen 3000 drop spreader?
ANSWER : Scott’s no longer makes this handy helper. Do this, get some white sand and mix it with the grass seed. It will mark your lawn and help you see where you spread the seed or fertilizer. Joe
