calibration gauge

Where online can I get a lesco calibration gauge? I lost mine and I want to make sure the spreader is set correctly. I don't have time to ride to the lesco dealer, it's a 30min ride.

Thanks, Tony

Just have the Lesco send you a few. It will cost more in shipping then what the gauge is worth, but you will have it. I would get a few sent just for back up.

Forgetaboutit. The only thing that counts is how much you are actually applying. Get a bucket and get your dealer...or anybody that has a good scale to weigh out enough of your favorite fertilizer to cover 3000 sqft. (at 4 pounds per thousand 12 lbs). Mark a line on the bucket to indicate 12 pounds, or as needed. Apply to a lawn and measure how much you covered with the correct amount. Adjust up or down as needed.
