That looks a lot like a Baltic spreader a friend of mine has. Central Tractor Farm & Family stores used to sell them. He may still have a readable settings chart. I'll check.

you have some special situation that you cant get a tractor into? buy one of those little atv spreaders and your just trading one problem for another bigger one. ive used both, the one you have is five times the machine any of the others are,regardless of what folks here say. when your done spreading your fertilizer,take the time to wash it good,then soak it down with it right and it will outlast you.the cheap plastic ones you buy for a atv has all the same problems this one does,plus the impellers crack in the sun if you leave them out,the motors sieze up, and a dozen more problems you wont have with this one.they are quite simply toys for wannabe farmers.ive got both types,plus a horse drawn one my grandad used that still works fine,and one built in the late forties that i still use every year.the atv one is without a doubt the bigger wont spread better,it wont work better,your fooling yourself if you believe it will.without proper care none of them will work period. but thats my opinion of course,like i say i keep using my old ones while i know other guys who buy another one each year..

Majority of my pastures are orchards and the tractor won't go between the trees without tearing up the cab top. I'll chill out on getting rid of it just yet and maybe borrow a neighbors tractor without a top/cab.....
I have a couple of older steel ones for pulling behind a small tractor on watch right now to see what happens...

ive pulled my old horse drawn one many a mile with a pickup,and i think you could pull one easy enough with a atv if it has an adjustable tongue for hieght. you want it to be setting pretty level.if you buy a old ground driven one off the net,see if you see a series of holes right at the front of the bin,where you can pull a pin or bolt and raise or lower hitch hieght. if so it pobably would go low enough to hitch to your atv.they were made that way so you could pull them behind a disc,harrow or whatever and still sit level.another thing that will help,see if it has a mixer/stirring bar inside the bin.that helps break up clumps of fertilizer and helps it to feed more evenly. if your sowing grass seed, mix it in well with play sand, helps stop it from bridging off,and it gives more weight so it throws the seed better. if your going to buy a atv one ,save your money and just go to lowes and buy one there made to pull in your yard.same exact machine at about 1/3 the price, and it will do just as well. go to a few auctions and you can buy them for 20-30 bucks all day around here.for five bucks buy a used one you push, take a conduit bender to the handle and hook it to your atv ,again the same machine.plastic gears ,gearboxes,impellers nothing for any real work.most get used once and are thrown away.wait till large trash pickup day in your area and you can probably pickup five or six.of course it might not say realtree on it, which automaticaly makes it totally unusable for food plots.seed probably wouldnt even sprout if you sowed it with one not painted hunter green or camo!LOL

OK... I'll watch.... The two I had on ebay are about shot (after looking at the pics closer. Started out good but were used for salt and rusted real good... Found one for vineyards but it's PTO driven and no help. I have a few months. Worst case, I'll use what I have for the open areas and my push spreader for the trees....

yep.... Just don't want to spend that much on it (ones like it I see here are between 5 and 6 hundred bucks)..... It just may happen tho because it would pay for itself in time saved and just by lasting longer.....
