Spreader Settings

NOTE: These spreader settings were established using standard equipment available from the spreader manufacturer at swath widths and speeds typically used within the industry. Many variables such as walking speed, terrain, particle size, density, and spreader condition can affect these settings. These suggested settings are estimations based on past experience and testing. They are not intended to replace calibration. Settings are approximate only.
