    sorry, i dont have the answer for you...but i would like to say that those 'settings' are only benchmarks.

    I have NEVER owned or operated a spreader (lesco /anderson or anyother) that apply the correct amount at the recommended setting stated on the bag. All spreaders will be different.

    Way back in the old days we used to tell new guys to set their spreader to "G" to apply grub control ('G' for Grub)
    hmmmm but the newer spreaders dont use letters but numbers...LOL

    Experience...walking speed...experience....condition of spreader....experience...weather conditions and did I mention experience, these are the variables in knowing what to set your spreader on for any particular product.

    Thanks for the replies;) ON the lesco site they have a spreader settings tool at least it will be a staring point.
