What is the spreader setting for Chapin 8200A 80-Pound Residential Turf Spreader to apply Scott's Weed and Feed?


Due to how many thousands of different spreader types and granulated products there are on the market, there are no master lists that allow us to know the spreader settings for each individual spreader and product used. 

The best thing to do to make sure you get the results you need from the product is to place the amount for 1000 sq/ft into your spreader and choose a setting somewhere in the middle or a notch or two below that. Walk a 1000 sq/ft area and note how much is being dispersed as you go. If you find the product is being put out too quickly and you feel you will run out before you cover the whole area, you can move the setting to a smaller option. If the opposite is happening and you find you have lots of product still in your spreader after you've covered 1000 sq/ft, you can move the setting up to release more product at a time.
