The Barricade is just as bad at the 1-1.25lb/acre rate. I had to leave my ride-ons at idle with the pump running between stops. Even at that the tip screens would occasionally clog. Barricade/simazine mix is even worse. I did not wear out the pump though. The one machine has 1000+ hrs on it with the original pump. However, its a Z not a T.

The T3000i is designed to "spread & spray" at the same time. Since fall of 2007, we have never experienced any problem whatsover.

Anybody trying to run WP's in a low volume unit is asking for problems.There are better/newer pesticide options.

We only use broadleaf control in the tanks of our T3000i. To get crabgrass control, we use dry dimension with the fertilizer.
