I just got off the phone with LT Rich's Rep and ordered this.

Since I have some gated properties with large back yards this seem like the logical way to go. I should have it in about 2-3 weeks.

Congratulations!! I just drove out to Lebanon on Monday and picked up my new Z Spray Jr. What a class bunch of folks to deal with! I'm glad we got it Monday as today we have ice and snow all over the place. I was able to "play" with it a little bit after getting home Monday afternoon, now I can't wait to see the improvemnet in applications.

I looked at both units at the Louisville Expo, prior to the Expo I knew little about the Z Spray and was looking heavily at the PG. What sold me was the heavier construction of the Z Spray vs. the PG, heavier frame, spyker fert tub, ceramic spray tips, the 15 hp Kaw, wheel motors and 10 BDP pumps. Overall the feel of the machine and the construction is well thought out and superior IMHO.
I have not been able to "test drive" anymore than just around the yard and that was after driving nearly 12 hours there and back to get it, now we have gone from 60+ degrees on Tuesday to 30 with ice and snow today. Anyway the little I did operate it seems very smooth to me, if you have ever demoed or run a stander than you'll know what I mean. I have a few slight slopes, nothing severe, and it handled fine. I have some properties (not a lot) that have more severe hills to put it to the test so I'll find out how it holds then. I am confident it will do fine though it seems a very stable machine and very user friendly.
Yes it does cost more, but experience has taught me that you get what you pay for, and IMO the Z is a superior machine for the money. As I've said Tom and his staff are so far excellent folks to work with and are passionate about their products.
I don't think you would be disappointed. :waving:

Can you get a platform to stand on like the PG?

All machines with the exception of the new walkbehind are similar in nature to a stander, that is you stand on the back of the machine and it operates on hydros.

I know I've chimed in here before.
I've got both the PG and the Z-Max.
Is the z any harder to learn or harder to run than the pg?
I dont think so.
In fact after a few minutes on the z you will be confident enough to want take it out for a real run.
The z is more manueverable, can deliver fert where the pg wont go and will get it done more quickly.
I also pull an aerator with the z.
Ya it costs a little more but you will get what you pay for.

As for support from L.T. Rich, They are top notch people who are always available to help when you need it.
I'd go with the z again any time.

Two things made me go with the Lt Rich unit. One was the width of the mahcine as I have gated properties, the second was that I looked at the PG and I decided that I would rather walk behind a machine that I know is well built and won't give me alot of down time. Plus the LT Rich rep was very helpful and informative.

I have heard nothing but good about these machines, the people that are the reps of the company, and the support that is offered. I looked at them, myself. I went with a Permagreen myself, and I am MORE than happy with it, but that is just me. I just feel that I am BLESSED to have ANYthing that I have. I know this is about a USELESS reply as far as information goes, but I just thoughht I'd chime in here and support the facts of Rich's history and/of quality.

Hey nitrojim...If you don't mind me asking, what are these walkbehind units going out the door for? I know that the z-spray is more expensive than permagreen, but i have heard more than alot of people say perma green customer service is not very good and down time is likely. But i am sure when there are a ton of anything sold, your gonna get lemmons and swamped with growing pains. But to me the z-spray i operated was awesome, bigger engine, solid unit, never had a problem. Maybe put couple thousand hours on the unit before i had anything start to break and Tom would next day ship any part i needed. Really good guys to deal with. Now that i have my own company i am looking forward to dealing with them soon. But this is the first i've heard of the walkbehind unit, just wondering if a second year guy on a budget could afford this unit, and hook a sulke up to it? If it's being too nosey on the price i'll just call and ask, Thanks.
