The spread with is adjustable up to 40 feet. Everyone in this business has their own specs depending on what product they applying and what equipment they are using. For instance, say im spreading a product that i want a rate of 5 lbs per thousand square feet. If its standard prill size i know that i want a rear pto speed of 325 rpm, a ground speed of 4 mph, an engine rpm speed of 1100 and a spreader setting of (top secret clearence required). Bottom line is you really need to spend time spreading lime and spraying clear water onto asphalt to get your bearings. Once you know your rates,speeds,etc. you can bang out big time acreage fast!
