What good is it spraying 40% wider if you still have to spread back to your wheel tracks anyway? I rarely use my trim nozzles either.

The Permagreen Magnum spreads further than it can spray. Even with overlap the spray system comes up short of the spread pattern. This would match up both the spread and spray patterns and increase productivity.

Is is possible to use both D and L nozzles and aim them outward some?

It's still in the prototype stages. Right now I'm looking for feed back on the need for the product. I will have pics when or if it goes to market.
Thanks for your input.

"Achilles heel" is this regarding the spray system?
My issue is that the Magnum single nozzle system doesn't reach out as far as the Ultra 2 nozzle system, so when you turn or if it "breezy" we end up with "skips" or strips of weeds not controlled.

The tires will limit that.

The way I understand it the spray width should be just a little over 1/2 as wide as the fert pattern on the Magnum. I turn on about 7ft centers, spreading back to my tire tracks. This gives me the old tried and true double overlap, even fertilizer coverage, and about 1 ft of overlap on my herbicide that has been giving me good control.
I'm afraid that if I try to spray the full width of the fert pattern I would have a real spray drift problem, not to mention trying to get the edges of my fert pattern to just feather in and not steak the lawn.

Sounds like the same prob you have with the Magnum is the same we had with the Ultra. We tweaked our Ultra's and now have half-way decent weed kill, but it still doesn't match up with the fert spread pattern. Lawns with hard-to-kill weeds = going back over. I must say that PermaGreen is top notch regarding service & sending needed parts promptly. There is no perfect ride-on, but PermaGreen has always treated us right.
