Do You Need a Spreader? If you`re going to spread fertilizer on your lawn then you really shouldn`t do it without a spreader. There are two types of spreaders: broadcast and drop. Drop spreaders are for more targeted applications, while broadcast spreaders are good for covering a large area quickly.
Product Description. Available on all models, the agitator aids in the spreading of powdery/clumpy fertilizers, lime or sand. The agitator eliminates the risk of material bridging.
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.
At the recommended setting for Scott`s rotary spreaders of 3.5, I used 13 lbs of product. . 72lb/1000 SQ ft.
ft. or 8 lbs per 1000 sq ft. using a rotary type spreader.
Pour Fertilizer Into Spreader

If you have a 40 pound bag of fertilizer for example, simply pour 3/4 of the bag into the spreader and this will be 30 pounds.

The first number is the amount of nitrogen (N), the second number is the amount of phosphate (P2O5) and the third number is the amount of potash (K2O). These three numbers represent the primary nutrients (nitrogen(N) – phosphorus(P) – potassium(K)). This label, known as the fertilizer grade, is a national standard.

I need parts for scotts precision flow model pf1
ANSWER : My Scotts Deluxe Edgeguard has broken. The cable that pulls the fertilizer feed door open (when you sqeeze the lever) has sheared off where the cable meets the body. Is there some way to obtain the part(s) I need? What about a repair manual so I can figure out what part(s) are required?

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!!
