The hopper does have an agitator we have not had any issues with ours
I talked with I think Sam at Ground Logics and he told me with the spray bar they are adding on to the new units, they are getting a 9' wide pattern where as the single broadcast is 10'.

Makes sense if your output is greater through multiple nozzles than through just one.
The more I hear about these GL machines, esp with the improvements, the more I want one.

I would like to ask, how is the fert buildup issue on the Ground Logic machines? Any issue with fert on the transaxle, pulleys, etc like with the PG lineup?

Anyone ever get one of these engines to not turn over with fluid locking the engine? We tried one of these units this year as a backup / over flow machine really and at 57 hours on Monday it wouldnt turn over. We pulled the spark plug and spit out a bunch of something. The service guy is trying to say its fuel/oil. Not sure what to think. We usually get 400 hrs a yr on each ride on and im not sure this GL is up to that.

That is reassuring. Do you run the boom kit on your machines Rod?
Are you satisified with the weed kill/spray coverage overall?

Had that happen on one of my mowers. Turns out its the needle valve in the carb. Needle valve gets particles on it from the ethanol in the fuel and this allows fuel to continue to run into the carb which then goes into the engine oil.

Go to pull the starter rope and about pulled my arm out of my shoulder. Said WTF. Checked oil and was overfull and smelled of gas.

Keep the fuel shutoff when not using and it solves the problem. I also found a local station that sells non ethanol fuel. Ive been using that this year.

Not an engine problem but a fuel problem.
