ABOUT YOUR TOW-BEHIND SPREADERThis tow-behind spreader is designed to spreader a wide range of materials (Fertilizer, Grass Seed, and Ice Melt). Materials such as Powders, Manure, Top Soil, Gravel, and Mulch have the wrong physical characteristics and should not be used with this spreader. Never exceed the rated load capacity of 125lbs when operating the spreader. Your spreader needs to be pushed at three miles per hour, which is a brisk walking speed. Slower or faster speeds will change the spread patterns. Wet spreading material will also change the spread pattern and flow rate. Clean your spreader thoroughly after each use. Wash between the shut-off plate and bottom of the hopper.Technical specifications on the tow-behind spreader are provided in the “Specifications” section of this manual.
