    What setting do do you set your controller at for the Vee pro-600 and SP1575?

    What rate per 1,000 are you looking for

    Based on the rate per k you want to apply you auger setting will be different. As a general rule we ran our V pro 6000 on auger setting 30 - 35. There were times we ran it more and less.

    As far as your 1575 I can tell you I normally run my 1875 on auger setting 18 - 20 unless I want a heavier rate or want to dial my spinner up.

    Are you having a problem?

    No problems. I just got them and haven't used them yet. Just trying to find a good starting point. Whats your average spinner speed and how far does it spread? Thanks

    Spinner speed

    I'll generally run my spinner speed on an open lot about 35 or so. However, you will be adjusting the spinner speed as you want to throw under cars or slow down for smaller areas.

    Try that for a starting point and go from that. Put some salt in your spreader and try it on some dry pavement to get your comfort zone / starting point.
