Flow limiter: This brass stop nut limits the hopper opening for consistent delivery of the material to the impeller.

Flow rate lever: This adjustment changes the drop chute opening and can be observed if one looks down into the hopper. While turning the crank handle with your right hand, move the flow rate lever with the left hand to adjust the flow rate.

Directional lever: This control adjusts the point where the material is to be deposited on the impeller and consequently, the width of the spread. This lever can be set for Centre, Left or Right spreading and can be changed on the go.

Deflector shield: This adjustment is to increase or decrease the width of the spread.
