Brinly Spreader Settings Guide

Brinly is a lawn maintenance manufacturing company well known in the United States. They’ve been around since 1839, providing high-quality lawn topdressing materials ranging from spreaders to fertilizers and soil treatments.

This article will give standard settings for their current flagship spreader – the Push Spreader Model P20-500BH. While this page will contain pretty much everything you can spread with Brinly’s push spreader, we’ve also added generic spreader settings in case the material you wish to spread is not included in the chart.

Brinly Spreader Settings Chart

Before applying any of these settings, remember that they are merely starting points. The actual settings you end up using for the entire lawn will depend on a variety of factors like the age of the spreader and the topography of the lawn.

At any rate, these settings are not often far from what you should be using, even if you decide to go with a manual/intuitive method for spreader settings calibration.
