I know, this is a long shot, but I'm trying to save myself a few hours of experimentation.

I need to spread Spectricide Triazacide Acre+ at the .8LB/1000SqFt rate with my King Cutter 400 Poly 3 point spreader. Has anyone out there done this combination, and what gate setting/PTO speed/Ground Speed did you use. Commence crickets.

I don't have any hard details to help you, but I had to apply 40 lbs per acre of fertilizer on a pasture a couple weeks ago using a broadcast spreader. It was my first time so I had to make an educated guess.

I knew that a 5 gallon pale was about 40 lbs, I had 6 acres to cover, 6 buckets went in the hopper and I went out. I eyeballed the flow coming out of the hopper and in the end I had a little left over, so I did a couple passes in areas I thought needed a little more.

Worst case, start slow and see how fast the hopper goes down vs amount of ground covered.
