Ez Spreader Settings

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.

Main Types of Spreaders

Ez Spreader Parts

Spreaders run from small, hand-held tools to heavy-duty, lawn-tractor models. But they come down to two main types: broadcast, also known as rotary, and drop spreaders. Home walk-behind spreaders usually have two wheels — and bigger wheels improve maneuverability. Both broadcast and drop spreaders have bucket-like hoppers with adjustable holes that control the volume of seed that goes through. However, the two types differ in how they distribute seed and what lawn types suit them best.

Broadcast Spreaders

Broadcast spreaders scatter or “broadcast' seed in a fanlike manner over a wide area, with the help of a rotating piece beneath the hopper holes. The size of the fan depends on hole size and your speed. Distribution thins as it gets farther from the spreader, so passes back and forth across the lawn must overlap to uniform seed across the full arc. A general rule is that the “effective width' of the spread is roughly equal to 75 percent of the total reach.2 If your spreader's arc measures 12 feet across to its outermost points, the effective coverage is 9 feet wide. Passes across the lawn should be 9 feet apart.3 For best coverage, set the spreader at 50 percent, and then spread your seed two ways in a crosshatch pattern.
Points to consider with broadcast spreaders include:

  • They suit large lawns and cover wide areas efficiently.
  • They require more skill to get uniform coverage.
  • They lack precision in tight spots and around obstacles.
  • They're more affected by wind, especially with lightweight products.
  • They can scatter seed or products out of bounds. (Some state laws require cleanup of fertilizer from sidewalks or other hardscapes.1)
  • They cover more ground in less time.
