What setting is Earthway spreader?

For instance, if you are using a 20-pound bag of seed to cover 10,000 square feet, or 2.0 pounds per square foot, you should use setting 13. If you are using a 40-pound bag of seed for 5,000 square feet, at 8 pounds per square foot, use setting 20.

How often should a fertilizer spreader be calibrated?

The spreader is properly calibrated when the calibration rate is within ± 5% of the recommended 5.00 lb. (in this example when the calibration rate falls between 4.75 to 5.25 lbs. of fertilizer per 1,000 sq. ft.).

How fast should I walk when spreading fertilizer?

The next thing to think about is walking speed, which most people tend to stay around three to three and a half miles per hour. Which, if I’m to equate that to a visual, I would say that it looks like a double-fast walk. Another key being that whatever speed you begin at, should be the speed that you finish at.

What setting should spreader be on for fertilizer?

Set your spreader on a low setting. (Usually one quarter of the way open is a good starting point.) Spread the material you put in the spreader over 100 m2 (10 m x 10 m) [1076 sq. ft.

Which is better a broadcast or drop spreader?

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.

How do you keep fertilizer spreaders clean?

Basic steps for cleaning your fertilizer spreader include:

  1. Empty the hopper on the spreader of any remaining product.
  2. Remove all granules and fertilizer residues from the hopper and spreading components using high-pressure air with an approved air nozzle.
  3. Thoroughly wash the spreader and allow time for it to dry.

What do the numbers on a fertilizer spreader mean?

Numbers on the fertilizer bag that appear like this, 10-20-15, represent the percentage of the nutrients Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P), and Potassium (K), respectively, which may be referred to as NPK. NPK is specially formulated for different growing needs to grow healthy plants.

Can I fertilize wet grass?

Yes, you can apply fertilizer to wet grass and this may even improve the effectiveness of the fertilizer. That is, provided that the grass is not waterlogged and that you are using granular or liquid fertilizers that are meant to be diluted.

What setting to overseed a lawn?

Agway recommends a setting of 15 for overseeding and 18 for a new lawn when using either their rotary spreader or an Earthway rotary spreader. With an Agway drop spreader, use a setting of 18 for overseeding and 22 for new seeding.

Are drop spreaders good?

Drop spreaders are great for putting down applications around areas that have lots of obstacles. They are excellent at spreading an application precisely. For example, if you are spreading weed control and you don’t want to get it in your plant beds, a drop spreader can produce a perfect “edge” of the application.

What number should fertilizer spreader be on?

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.
