I've got one almost just like it. Mine is notorious for being almost impossible to calibrate. The setting chart on it is WAY off. About the only good thing about those things is that it beats walking with a push spreader. In order to be more accurate, you can build some "catch boxes" and weigh the amount you are putting on. Build 3, 3x3 square frames out of 2x4's. Tack plastic to the bottom of each one. Place these 3 boxes across your spread pattern (one on each side and one in the middle). DRive at the speed that you think you can maintain and spread fertilizer over the boxes you have set up (driving over the middle box). Stop after having gone over the boxes. Weigh the total amount of fertilizer in all three boxes. Multiply this amount times 1613 and this will give you the total pounds PER ACRE you have just applied. Adjust your settings as necessary.
