Improper spreader settings can lead to a waste of time and money if too much product is used and callbacks from customers if too little product is dispersed. Starting with the appropriate setting for your specific machine will help. When using a LESCO product, find the designated setting listed on the bag and then cross reference that number to your particular spreader type using the attached documents.
Keep in mind that labeled settings on the product bag and those listed within the charts are approximate and should be used as a starting point only. Many factors influence product delivery rate including but not limited to regularity of calibration, operator walking speed, maintenance history of spreader, and weather conditions.
Contact your SiteOne® branch to inquire about spreader settings for equipment not listed or for additional technical support.
