For your ride-on psrayer, what tips are you using? i ha ve two PG manchines and thing sometimes I should have different tips - I am usually in high all the time.

I use only trimic for broadleaf in my area. Some crabgrass (MSMA)

I run Momentum FX2, Vessel, and on occasion, TZone and Drive XLR8 thru my PG. I do not run any specialty herbicides thru it though, I spot spray those with a backpack as needed.

Eliminate LO is a low-odor formulation of Three-Way and works great, even on violets & ground ivy. The price is much better than Momentum or Speedzone with the same, if not better, results. We did try Speedzone but the odor was awful and results no better.

I mix the tank with 46 oz of trimic / 12 gallon tank on the PG machine. They say it should do around 34K I beleive - to the most part it is usually close. Water / 1000 sq ft - honestly I have never measured that out.

Each machine is a little different. I mix 60 oz three way-type herbicide with 12 gals water. This is for the std 1.1-1.5 oz/K sq ft three way.
