    Hello, I just got my pesticide license and I also just bought an Earthway spreader. I was looking on the back of some Lesco bags to do my yard and none of them have the calibration setting for an Earthway. How do I figure this out. Thanks

    Try a search on Earthway spreaders (settings). There HAS to be SOMEONE who uses these that would know the cross reference of settings.;)

    Earhway spraders are nothing but gear box problems. Went through 4 of them befoe switching to Stainless LESCO ones. Use Earthway for calcium apps on walks only!!

    On Eric's recommendation I just purchased a Spread 4 Mower front mount electric spreader today to fit any of my Dixie Choppers. It was $650 including the mounting kit and purchased directly from the manufacturer. I really like the idea of the one push button control of the gate and fan control. Nice people to work with........Lynn

    If you keep the gearbox well greased on your Earthways, you will have NO problems. Feed it TONS of grease!
