I just watched the “spreader settings” video. I understand your Kinetic energy analogy but you spoke to your son’s question on the 5’ strip of grass and should he use the side switch. My question on slowing down is won’t you possible add a certain % of addl product per sq ft? When I would open the valve the the weight of the product falling below onto the spreader does not change. ie: If I open the valve and not walk it would just run out at the same speed every time?

Doc…this is my second email concerning 2 4 D being sprayed for my wood Sorrell problem! I used 2 tablespoons for 1 gallon of water as directed and it killed my Bermuda lawn in spots where I sprayed! How can I repair those spots? Thanks!
