ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS

Approximate assembly time is 5-10 minutes.

Suggested Tools:

Wrench and/or Ratchet Set

  • Remove bottom bolt from each side of handle (below thumb nuts Figure A).

  • Loosen thumb nuts on top bolts (Figure B) and flip up handle.

  • Replace bolts below thumb nuts and tighten down.

  • Tighten all 4 thumb nuts completely.

  • Note: If spring detaches from bail assembly, simply re-attach (see Figure C).

GENERAL OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

  • Be sure gate control is in the closed position (do not hold bail down when filling ).
  • Determine appropriate setting for material being used by reading the suggested setting on the material’s bag AND/OR by referencing the application chart on your spreader’s control panel (Charts provided are only guidelines. Be sure to read the instructions on the bag/box of the material you’re spreading to identify accurate setting needed).
  • Set the dial to the desired setting. Important Note: Do not adjust dial while holding bail down and gate is open. This will alter the accuracy of gate settings and cause parts to break.
  • To begin spreading, start walking (about 3 mph pace) and pull the bail system down to open gate.
  • To stop spreading simply let go of the bail and the gate will close

BAFFLE OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

    Chapin 80 lb spreader

    By Mark on 01/13/2017

    Love it. By far and away a much better spreader than I've ever gotten from scotts or others. Excellent item considering cost to quality. No hesitation recommending this spreader to anyone needing a new one. Customer service was great.

    Chapin 8200A Turf Spreader

    By W. on 08/01/2017

    Assembly was very simple and all components appear to be first class. Loaded fertilizer (50 lb. bag) and applied to lawn. Spread appeared to be very even and compared to my previous spreader output time was cut by approximately 30-40 percent. I especially like the large tires for ease of movement and load handling capacity even though I only loaded 50 lbs on initial trial. The last few pellets of fertilizer didn't feed into bottom exit slot easily and had to "back & forth" spreader a few times. Clean up was easy. Very pleased.

    So far so good

    By Darrell on 09/24/2018

    I like the way this operates, however, I used Scotts fertilizer and set the gate opening according to instructions and put on way too much fertilizer. After some experimenting I ended up setting the Chapin at the same rate as Scotts. The Chapin chart suggested 3.25 Scotts equals 12 on the Chapin.

Q
How far apart do I have to give for the proper overlap using Chapin 8200A 80-Pound Residential Turf Spreader ?
A

When using the Chapin 8200A 80-Pound Residential Turf Spreader  there are many factors to consider such as the speed of the person’s walk, length of stride, etc.  Because this varies greatly, Chapin recommends for customers to test a small area to see what kind of coverage they are getting and make any necessary adjustments from there.
