Gilken, I have the same question. Wouldn't it be nice if the numerical
setting were in pounds per 1,000 s.f.? My bags of lime suggest settings
for
every spreader except Republic, and for the same rate of application (10
lb/1,000 s.f.) call for anywhere from 7-1/2 to 26 for a 12-inch spreader.


Every product you might try to spread will likely come out at a
different rate depending on the physical characteristics (size of
particles, weight per particle etc.) of that product. Spread a bag and
see how far it goes?
