GeoTea Sprayer Pictures

Hey Everyone,

I've talked to Bob Posthuma (owner of Greater Earth Organics) and he was telling me about his new compost tea sprayers that are coming out this Spring. He makes the GeoTea (250 gallon compost tea machine) that a few people own here on Lawnsite. So here's a few pictures of his units.

Bob said that they should be up on his website very soon.

For the 4 Wheel Tote Sprayer:

The total price for the 4 wheel cart is $5250. That includes the sprayer with 200’ of ½” hose and the 25’ wide boomless nozzle with a manual
control for the nozzle. An electric solenoid valve to control the boomless nozzle is available for $250 more.

What did I tell you in the other thread about using a JD Gator and I recommended the Kubota?

NattyLawn, you were talking about a gas Gator (not sure what size engine it had) but when you would step on the gas, it would start slow and then it would "kick in" and you thought you could or would (not sure on that part) but you could tear up a customer's yard.?.?

You thought "maybe" a diesel wouldn't do the "kick in to gear" thing...right?

What size engine was your Gator? Model? Year?

geo tea

excuse my ignorance, I havn't fully researched geotea or compost tea, but from what i've read the tea needs a "fermentation" period for the microbes to spread and then theres the chlorine issue. One source I read said the rate for compost tea was around 150gal/.5acre. thats a ton of materail to apply on a commercial scale or even residential. The tank in the truck looks like a 250gal one, which wouldn't last long at all. I'm all for greener ways of doing things, but this seems like it would be a huge inconvenience.
