So here are the general rules: For fertilizers put the setting a notch or two above half. For example, if there are 20 notches on the spreader, 11-12 would be the setting. You don`t have to cover every square inch of turf to get good results, so if you think that`s too much, drop to a notch below half.
The numbers on a broadcast spreader refer to the spreader settings. Typically, these settings will indicate how wide of. Maaria Neal.
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.

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!!

I just bought a new Scott’s “Classic Drop” Spreader. I owned a Scott’s drop spreader before and the recommended settings on Scott’s fertilizer bags always worked great.
On Scott’s Turfbuilder fertilizer for Spring (yellow on bag) it recommends one setting for drop spreaders which was 5 3/4.
I drained an entire 14 lb bag with that setting before I was even 1/4 done with my lawn. Usually I can do my whole lawn and have some left over. I even returned the spreader to Home Depot and got another one and another bag of fertilizer and the same thing occured. I adjusted it down to 3 after a bit and still used the entire other 14 lb bag.
I am sorry that neither spreader performed as they should have. This is very concerning to us, and we would like to get more information about the spreaders, if you still have 1 the manufacture date would be most helpful to us. It sounds like you could possibly have an over-application of the product as well. If you could call us at 1-800-543-8873, we would be happy to discuss this with you. Stacey at Scotts.
