    Years ago Henderson and others built spreaders with controls that you could dial in the spread rate for salt or even fertilizer.

    The current models by Fisher and others give you variable speeds and feeds by but no way to tell actual coverage.

    Does anyone have the data ; sprocket size , motor speeds and chain volume so a spread sheet could be calculated . Maybe someone has done this?
