Great system for cat litter, but we use fertilizers, herbicides and insecticides. The density & flow rates for each product are very different. The volume of 5# of cat litter may equal 10# of fertilizer, or 2# of Tupersan.<p>Even on systems like Lesco machines & products, you are cautioned that your individual machine must be calibrated. Take two machines off the assembly line and set at same settings, first may deliver 5#/K, second may do 4.5#/K. And after using the first machine for 2 yrs, it may now put out 6#/K.<p>Also the machine putting out 5#/K at 8 am, 40% humidity on a summer day may only be doing 4.5#/K at 3 pm, 90% humidity. If you want to calibrate, it is an ongoing process.<br>But that is the only way you will know what you are doing. Can I cut cost by 10% by using 10% less product, and still get the same results? Or even 25%?<br><p>----------<br>Jim<br>North central Indiana
