    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.

    where can i order one? the moron at the JDL store by my house told me i'd have to buy a new spreader to get that. good thing there are other options for suppliers around here. would really like to get one of those calibration keys myself though.

    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.
