    I'm new here.I have a very small rout of 6 clients.I'm just starting out as a second line of income.I am using lesco products but while my spreader is in for repair I'm using a Scott's lawn pro spreader as a backup and can't find a conversion chart on lesco for this spreader type.I've checked both lesco's and Scott's site with no luck. I'm spreading Lesco 24-0-11 fert.
    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Use your Lesco key #15 like it says on the lable. You should have gotten one when you got the spreader. Or get one from Lesco.

    Bought it used off the bay.It's in for a tune up. I don't know anything about key#15.
    I will re read the label tomorrow. Or maybe you can help by telling me what key#15 converts to a Scott's lawn pro spreader setting.
    Thanks for the reply.

    Just start off with a low setting on the spreader not anything crazy. When you get done mutiply 3 to how many square feet see how many pounds you were to use or not use and adjust the spreader accordingly.
