OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS:

Before filling hopper, become familiar with the operation of this spreader.

  • Obtain proper setting for material to be used from the SETTING MATRIX included with this spreader.
  • Move stop bolt on rate gauge assembly to the proper setting and tighten.
  • While pushing spreader forward, push control lever forward to the stop bolt. To stop, pull lever back to close flow holes before you stop moving.
  • When finished, empty any remaining material from hopper.
  • Thoroughly wash spreader and allow to dry before storing.
  • To prevent corrosion, spray a light oil or Fluid Film inside the tubing of the chassis and on all metal parts.
  • If using Rock Salt, to prevent damage to the gearbox remove salt from the hopper daily. Rock Salt will reconstitute back into a solid block if left in the hopper overnight and will damage your gearbox if operated with the salt in place.

EV-N-SPRED Calibration Techniques

How to ensure your spreader is properly calibrated:

Make sure the drop holes in the bottom of the hopper are fully open when the Rate Control handle is on #30. If not, please adjust control cable or control rod to allow for a full open hopper position at #30.

Rod Type Adjustment:

  1. Open the shut-off so that the drop holes are completely open as illustrated to the right.
  2. Review the Control Lever position - if it is set so that the forward edge is at #30, you are calibrated. If not, you need to adjust the control rod at the pivot bracket shown in Fig 1. (See manual)
    • If your shut-off is not able to open fully as in step #1. Loosen the top nut a few turns, then loosen the lower nut so that it allows you to push the shut-off open fully. Next tighten each nut so that they contact the pivot bracket without moving it, and then carefully tighten each nut fully so they do not loosen during use. Recheck adjustment   as outlined in #1 above.
    • If your shut-off is able to open fully as in step #1, but the Control Lever is not at #30. Loosen the top nut a few turns, then loosen the lower nut so that it allows you to push the Control Lever to #30. Next tighten each nut so  that they contact the pivot bracket without moving it. Carefully tighten each nut fully so they do not loosen during  use. Recheck adjust as outlined in #1 above.

Cable Type Adjustment

  1. Open the Control Lever so that the shut-off and drop holes are completely open as illustrated above right.
  2. Review the Control Lever position so that the indicator is pointed to #30, if it is your calibration is correct. If not you need to adjust the control cable at the cable clamp on the underside of the hopper as shown in Fig 2. (See manual)
    • If your shut-off is not able to open fully as in step #1. Loosen the cable clamp screw slightly so that you can slide  the outer cable out so that the shut-off is fully open. Next tighten the cable clamp screw securely. Recheck  adjustment as outlined in #1 above.
    • If your shut-off is able to open fully as in step #1, but the Control Lever is not at #30. Loosen the cable clamp screw   slightly so that you can slide the outer cable in so that the Control Lever opens to #30. Next tighten the cable clamp  screw securely. Recheck adjustment as outlined in #1 above.
