    It's under "Solution Center" at the top of Lesco's site. You have to enter in the product though.

    Lesco sells a set of calibration keys, you can set the size of the spreader opening for they're products with the keys. Your local Lesco should have a set for sale, or you can check Lesco's web page online.

    I did a search under pest control products & Crosscheck is discontinued. You will probably have to go into Lesco & get one of those things that checks your opening on the spreader.

    The Crosscheck EZ is a new product, so I doubt if they have a Scott's setting yet.

    There are dozens of spreaders out there, all with their own calibrations.

    I think that's a fine particle product, so use whatever setting you'd use for a weed and feed product. That's just a ballpark suggestion. Hard to calibrate anything with a Scott's POS spreader

    The Lesco calibration gauges they sell are for calibrating a Lesco spreader only.

    My suggestion would be to buy yourself a decent spreader. Well wortht inthe long run. Lesco's is the industry standard, will last you forever. But, at $350, out of reach for most homeowners. Earthway makes a decent one. You can get a low-end commercial Earth way for around $100-$150.

    The setting for your scotts is going to be around "5" this product is an elite particle size and is just like the Talstar ez and crosscheck PL 25 pounders.
    Go at a higher rate if you want to get control of hardshells/flea and tick.
