Notes:

  1. All settings are for guidance only. Variations in product density and granule size can affect flow rate. Wear and tear can affect the performance of the individual spreader
  2. Avoid over-dosing at all times. It is recommended that a lower setting is first tried to avoid the risk of over-dosing. 
  3. Always complete calibration check before first use and before use each season.
  4. Always ensure the spreader is cleaned thoroughly after use to avoid deterioration of the spreading mechanism.
  5. g/sq.m = grams per square metre

Advice on how to work out spreader settings (Calibration) 

If you can't find your spreader in the list above you can work out which setting you should use: 

Work out the area in m2 that you want to cover.  Weigh out a known amount of product recommended to treat that area and put it into the spreader hopper. In order to avoid any accidental damage to your lawn, first use the spreader to cover one square metre on a large sheet of plastic.  Collect the product with a dustpan and brush and weigh it (making sure you use an old container as ferrous sulphate can cause staining).

  • Repeat as necessary until you get the application rate given on the lawn product packet.
  • If you are over dosing, then turn down the spreader setting as soon as you suspect this is happening - don't wait until you have over dosed the whole lawn.
