Fert. question?

I have a Precision Pro Spreader with settings 1-10. Lesco has my (lesco) spreader and I cant get ahold of them to pick up my spreader or fert! I would like an idea of what to set this thing at to put Scotts Turf Builder + halt. Ive been dicking around with this for a few days and need to get this stuff down asap! Don't knock me for buying Scott's fert, I believe my lesco dealer is out of business and I want my spreader back! What do I set this Precision Pro at? This is for my own lawn as I sub all fert and other apps. out! Thanks! Jus trying to get my own lawn looking good!

My lawn is approx. 7500 sq. ft. which is about a half bag of the Scott's that I bought. What is a safe setting for this spreader (settings 1 - 10) My wife is on my butt and I don't want to over fert and burn it up!

You have to calibrate the spreader. If you don't know how to do that why not go buy a $20.00 scotts spreader and set where they suggest.

spreader setting

Not familiar with "Precision Pro" spreader. Set it at about 3 and go over it twice if you need more. Three times as needed.

You are probably finished already.

I find it hard to believe you can't get in contact with anyone at your'e lesco branch to pickup your spreader and fert, I mean thier open six days a week what's the real problem??

I also find it hard to believe you are buying a $350 spreader to use on your 7500 square foot lawn.

Good thing you sub out your apps. if you don't know how to calibrate a spreader. Lesco was sold to John Deere Landscapes.
