    Just calibrated my earthway on #15 gave me around 5lbs. Per.k/2
    what is everyone getting on that setting w/ a lesco? The lesco gauge matched the earthway Perfectly BTW 15 on both.

    Snow here, but dealer let me calibrate in his warehouse. But...I like to tinker with equipment. Scotts R8A spreader. I cover the left and right holes with duct tape. I just use one big center hole. Trying to hit 3 lbs per thousand. Eventually needed 19 on the lesco guage. Set at M 1/2 on the setting. Discovered i walked at 2.5 mph and covered 1000 sq ft in 27 seconds. Nine foot swath measured center to center.
