Fall broadleaf control

I am needing suggestions on a postemergent for dandelions, spurge, etc for my fall treatments. I have used a threeway on a few of my lawns twice already this year and the labels states "2 applications per year." I will be using Pendulum and Simazine as pre em but need something to take out the broadleaves, thanks in advance.

On the few lawns that you applied 3 way to 2 times, were both apps broadcast applications?

Banvel. Tread lightly around trees/shrubs out in the lawns.

Horsepower is the product of choice. Effective and no 2,4-D.

It is late in the season for spurge control by any means. 40 degrees will stop further growth; frost will kill it. Or maybe not, where you live.
For the dandelions and winter annuals--its time where I am--We had a 40 degree night last week. I think perhaps a bit early in OK. No sense having the chickweed, henbit, veronica and winter annuals come up in November AFTER you sprayed.

Thanks guys, I will see if I can get Horsepower or something like it at my distributor. I had to use three way more than I wanted to at a few of my new customers lawns that had never been treated.

A other suggestions? I've used Horsepower. Pricey and results were mixed. Had to mix it with Octane to get adequate results. Never used Banvel.

Also, one of our suppliers indicated that it does not matter if it's only a spot-spray or if you are under the maximum amount of AI that can be applied in a given year, you cannot apply 2,4-d 3-way herbicides a third time in a year.
I said, the label says... and he said it was an EPA ruling & that it took precedent over the label. Anyone hear this before?

Check out pbi gordons product lines they have some products specifically for somebody in you situation T- Zone is one I think maybe one more.
Also if your spraying warm season turf try metsulfuron very good on broadleaves and very cheap in my area at least.
