Q:

Need spreader settings sheet 486243222 Craftsman Broadcast spreader

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be more than happy to help with your spreader. Upon researching model 486243222:  we no longer have the spreader sheet available for this model. On the bag of fertilizer there will be a chart that gives the recommended settings for that particular bag. Because different manufacturers of fertilizer make the granules different sizes it is impossible for the spreader manufacturers to give guidelines for all of the different fertilizers.

The owner’s manual has the way to adjust the settings on the spreader. If you don't have an owner’s manual you can get one on this site. To view the owner’s manual

I trust this information will help you, we appreciate your business thank for choosing Sears.

Thank you for your question.

I will be happy to assist you. I posted an image below that shows what the settings should be. Just click on the image to enlarge it. There are a few rules to follow when using the spreader. Make sure to close the spreader door before you plan to stop. If you do not close the door, the fertilizer will continue to run out when stopped. It is also recommended to run the spreader at 3 miles an hour.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Thank you for contacting Sears Parts Direct with your questions about your Craftsman Spreader. I am so sorry to hear that the gearbox is slipping sideways. That has to be so frustrating when you are trying to get your yard work done. I will be happy to help you with this. First I have included the link for you to view the parts diagram of the spreader. That will show you how the parts will line up.

The gearbox will be key 19 in the diagram. It should be fairly easy to replace. You would need to detach the axle (key 17) to remove it. I recommend ordering the axle/gearbox kit. It will contain the gearbox, the axle and the hardware. I have inclued the link to order it for you.

While you are making your repairs, I recommend checking the condition of the other parts that work in conjunction with the gearbox. First look in the hopper and make sure the agitator hairpin (key 26) is still there. If it is missing, it may explain why the gearbox is slipping. I have included that link for you.

Next check the flow slide below the hopper (key 12) and the impeller (key 20) for damage. If either of those parts are damaged, they should be replaced. I have included those links for you.
