|How to Use
Check the package of the product you’re using for the
rate setting. Rotate the inner micrometer until the
correct setting appears in the micrometer window. Fill
the hopper on sidewalk or driveway (never on the lawn)
and move to starting point on lawn.
Pull the lever until it stops against the handle
grip, and start walking to initiate spreading. Release
the lever to stop material flow. To avoid misses or
heavy strips, make each pass 5 feet from the previous
one (5 feet from centerline to centerline) since the
swath is 3 feet wide, which allows for approximately 1
foot of overlap.
Operate the spreader the longest direction of the
lawn. First apply two header strips across each end to
provide turning space. Go back and forth between the
ends. Shut off spreader when approaching header or
trees. Turn off before coming to a complete stop. Keep
the spreader off while backing or turning to avoid
waste and possible lawn injury from over-application.
Shut off spreader just before getting to the trunk of
a tree, start spreader in motion on other side, then
turn candontinue spreading.
