Do you have the throttle type cable on the left-hand side of the hopper???? On my Centri this cable moves the discharge plate at the bottom of the hopper left and right to adjust the throw pattern.

only way to know for sure is to do the pan test. where you set up pans to collect product. should have the instructions with your owner's manual.

Another time consuming issue with PG's

I didn't do the pan test. Looked childish to me. I just measured out area 143 x 7, went with the 4.18 pds, found my hole settings and adjusted from there. I am running about 4.25 - 4.5 pd per K. I am either throwing out extra on turns, over walks, ect. I don't think it can ever be right on unless you have a 1 acre run withno turning and you can actually empty the hopper and tank.

I find it's pretty easy to just visually adjust the Centri. It usually only takes a slight adjustment to keep a nice even pattern when switching products.
