I will be demoing a T3000 tomorrow morning for a few hours on one of my large commercial properties. This particular property has plenty of slopes. I am looking forward to the experience. Will report back tomorrow.

Maybe that's why the first T3000 production unit still goes out everyday & all functions operate like new. :usflag:

BTW we pulled out a Z-Spray last year cuz it didn't make it thru the ditch. :cry: (T3000 to the rescue)

I'm still wondering how many lawnsite members running Z's, etc have even tried a T3000. rscvp on this one :confused:

maybe it fell apart.

No matter -- M & C just rolled in. (they run T3000's everyday). All of us laughed at the Z-Spray boys' "jokes" on lawnsite (for good reason, cuz everytime they see a T thread - the Z- Boys jump on their bandwagon and only offer sarcastic comments). No experience with other units, & they have their head up their A$$ (quote from M who tested all of the above units). Including Z's.

We will demo a T3000 (the oldest production unit TURFCO ever made) in front of hundreds of turf grass professionals. If there was something wrong with the unit, why would we take a chance of displaying a bad unit? :confused:

Sorry, but we have "tried them all". Maybe that is bad, but we do not think so. :confused:

Sorry gents work load has left me exhausted however hear goes.
Please remember this demo was only for two hours hardly enough time to give any ride-on a fair shot. Hear are some observations

1. Spread pattern was uniform and easily adjusted.

2. Controls even-though they look busy easy to get used to.

3. Foot speed control slowed unit down

4. Unit was slower then expected

5. Heading down a slope the unit breaks free

6. Several times the foot control stuck when it was supposed to be disengaged


I can see where the t3k is superior to the centri and ultra however I prefer my 08 magnum . Please t3k A-Teamers it was only a 2 hour demo and just my first impressions.

It's good to keep a sense of humor. I'm constantly getting a chuckle out of things you and some of the others are posting on here.

I ran one for a long time didnt like it. When I first heard about it I thought I love my turfco aeraters cant wait to run one .Cant get passed no zero turn, not stainless , steering wheel , no hose reel I just expected more from turfco.


Never ran a PG never will so cant say about that .
