Anybody try one of these out yet? Wanted to hear some feedback before investment in one, I do a lot of small residentials and granular + a spray application from my spreader would be great.

Haven't used one, but there are guys near me that do. I think i can see myself getting the synergy or the one shot in the future.

I bought one for the start of this season. I used it to apply pre-emergent in backyards that I can't fit the z-spray. I love it!!!!! 5,000,000 sq. ft. and didn't drag one hose. :clapping:

i have used it but i think it needs to be tweaked a bit so the wheel doesnt slip and give u incosistent pressure.

I've had a little problem with the wheel slipping. Yesterday I realized that the nozzle was slightly turned to the left and was getting some spray on the wheel. After I adjusted it, it has stopped slipping so far.

I don't do many applications and the Synergy works well for me. I would definitely buy one again if I had to.

How good of a kill did you get considering the low output? I would love one but want to make sure it is effective and not missing weeds.

Pretty good, but I've never used a tank/hose to compare it.

Just put one on one of my pushers. We shall see. Definately makes the whole thing noticeably heavier.

You will get good weed-control if you have the mix right. your spraying the same amount of herbicide per K, just less water.

thanks for the input on the synergy overall sounds good, how do you know how much to mix (calibration) thanks,

To calibrate--put in a gallon of water. Spray parking lot until you run out--measure the area you covered. That is the sq ft per gallon. Repeat to be sure. Make a fill chart based on the sq ft per gallon.

How much are the synergy insert sprayers?
Do you have the boom kit or is the single nozzle good?

I think mine was @ $350 plus shipping. If you want a cover, order it as well. The old hopper cover won't fit anymore.

Single nozzle works well.
