yeah, sorry. not being harsh on puprose, no offensehaha. if you get lawn and landscape magainize, there is an artical in the last issue about ride ons. read them if you can. they all tell about how they love thier machines and then they talk bout the limitaions they have found and how the company is soooo great aobut helping everytime they break down!!!!!!!!!!!!!! what, every time, how many times does it take to know you have a pos. wow. the guy withthe c&s machine told how the engines are giving him lots of problems. doesnt look good to me to hihlight a product like this and then tell its faults and problems. kinda funny. you wont find an article like this one aobut zspray,.

I read the article and also noticed the guy who said he lost count of how many times his Perma Green had broke down, but, their customer was great. I wonder why the z-spray wasn't covered? Sorry for being new.

Welcome aboard...nothing wrong with being new :) Not trying to be a smart azz, and I did not see the article but maybe it is because they rarely break down. Seriously, the guys that post on here that have them never post about any kind of problem. If they have to repair something it is minor and few and very far between. Also, on the rare occasion there is a problem. LT Rich is all over it. I have a PG Ultra. I've had some problems. Nothing major. Honestly, it has nickel and dimed me to death. Their customer service has been excellent, but the machine has had its moments of being a PIA.

I would recommend the Z-Spray all the way... I have no experience with the C&S, but I must say the spray booms being in the back seems like a PITA to me. I like to see whats going on in front of me, having booms behind me would seem odd;)

It is a sore subject here @ LT Rich that we were not in the issue. Our account rep at the magazine changed and some items fell thru the cracks. We will however have a article about our machine in the next issue.

Funny, you fantasize about it being a "centerfold".

Last night, I was lying in bed reading Lawn and Landscape magazine, I guess my eyes were a little busy, I think I was checking out the new Ferris Evolution mowers... anyway, my wife was watching me look at it and mumbling desirous phrases under my breath, and thought I must have some kind of disorder to be ogling a lawn mower.:laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh:
