I have a Scotts Speedy Green EdgeGuard Mini; I need to spread 2.3 lbs per 1,000 square feet; what should be the setting
I am putting down pre-emergent (dimension)
I believe the spreader goes from 1-15
Experienced gardeners share their insights in answering this question :
First, I went to the products website, in this case Lesco and looked up the spreader settings:https://www.johndeerelandscapes.com/home/spreader-settings.aspxThen, I went to Scotts website and looked up spreader settings:http://www.scotts.com/smg/node2/SCOTTSCOM/lawn-care/lookup-spreader-settings/7800015-24900013-sI cross referenced a product on the Scotts website that uses the same settings as one of those listed on the Lesco website and I found my settings that way.In my case I was using Lesco Pre-M 0.86% 0-0-7 and wanted to apply 5.3 lbs/1000ft. My spreader was a Scotts Turf Builder EdgeGuard Mini with settings from 0-15. I found out by cross referencing that the Scotts Speedy Green 1000 and my spreader used the same settings. So I ended up using the recommended setting of 5.5, as listed on the Lesco website for the Scotts Speedy Green 1000, to apply 5.3 lbs/1000ft of pre emergent using my Scotts EdgeGuard Mini. Hope this helps!

The label calls for 2 to 3 pounds per 1000 square feet. If your spreader settings go from 1 to 10 (1 letting out the least and 10 letting out the most) you typically want to be around a 2 setting. If your spreader goes from 1 to 20, you should probably be around a 4 setting.
The setting that you will use when applying Bifen Granules with a Scotts Edgeguard DLX is a 2 or a 3 depending on how quickly you walk.
Place your spreader setting on a low setting (usually one-fourth of the spreader setting range or less). Spread the material over a 50 x 20-foot area (1,000 square feet). If there is material left over, increase your setting. If you come up short, decrease your setting.
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.

If you want to use a manual process to find out the best estimate for your spreader setting, a good starting point is to consider the following: 1 lb per 1,000 sq ft = 43.6 lbs per acre. 100 lbs per acre = 2.5 lbs per 1,000 square feet.

The suggested settings should provide an application rate of 3.5 pounds per 1,000 square feet or 150 pounds per acre. Application rates will vary dependent upon speed, equipment wear and condition of spreader.

This is a Scotts Speedy Green 2000 model. What is the problem when the flat thing below the hopper quits turning to throw the fertilizer out onto the yard?
It’s important to have precisely the right setting. A little wide is better, because the product you’re spreading isn’t always even, but you’ll have to walk faster to ensure you don’t over apply. This is a notorious problem with those plastic spreaders – I’ve used them lots – and I find that if you stop suddenly with fertilizer in the hopper it instantly stops up. Backing up quickly, then jerking it forward seems to help most of the time.
Make sure you close the chute before you stop moving, and be quick with the chute release. Also, don’t fill it too much because when you run into this problem it makes it more difficult to remedy.
I have a speedy green 1000 and the drop chute will not close is there a repair kit for this machine?

Trying to figure out the spreader setting for some bug killer for my lawn. I have a Scott’s Basic Spreader. The instructions on the bag include Scott’s Speedy Green Spreader setting at 2 1/2 for 2lbs per 1000 sq. ft. What would that translate to for my basic spreader?
