posted this in the pesticide forum too.

Well just a note about a new unit that is coming out as we speak. I just ordered one today, it really looks nice. The Company making them is in Indiana and it is pretty neat machine. Here are some pictures of the machine.

looks like a waste of a wright stander. the blow back from the nozzels should eat that carbon steel right up. Mr. stone has them beat at 10% of the cost.

i seen something like those, but the they looked like they were more compact and they said you could do twice the amopunt in half the time. also i seen a spayer that hooks up to a lazer and holds around 30 gallons of liquid food. i seen both of them in lawn & landscape magazine and pro. good luck.

The steel is epoxy coated. It is a new traction unit not cannabalized. This machine is compact and will work on hills that the permagreen needs to be pushed up which from what I have seen is most. This is not the final design either. I have not seen Stones so I can't comment. I just had the guy make me one (with a few mods for me) and thought I would show it to the group.

Ok, I got this machine and have used it extensively for the last week. It is amazing, makes a perma-green pale in comparasion. I have used a perma, I did not think it was comfortable to use or really all that convenient. I did not like chasing (perma-green users know what I mean), the perma-green around on hills because the thing would not pull me up. I have been very happy with the ergonimics of this machine. I have done hills that a push spreader is hard to use on. I did not get the sprayer unit because I already have a big spray unit, and I have a 200# spreader on mine. This thing is amazing, I am covering over 10 acres of Lawns in half a day that before took days. This machine is worth a look. It is really stable.
