Mine is 2/3 lb of N with the medium rate on Barricade.

I agree I have not sprayed anything yet either. Weeds are just too small to try and spray yet, would be futile and waste of time to do. Will finish Rd 1 without spraying hardly anything. That is always a goal of mine. Last year was a nighmare, had to blanket all lawns right out of the chute while throwing pre. Hated that.

I am a small timer. It will take me two days to go through the 3300#'s I just ordered. Most is spread with a 3 point spreader on a SCUT. Small areas with a Spyker SS.

I specialize in large lawns over an acre so it goes fast.

On many occasions, my helper and I put out 6000# in one day. I used a cyclone spreader that I pulled behind one of my ZTR's. I believe the spreader would hold 5 or 6 bags at a time. I would spread a load, zip back to the trailer, and my helper would have 5 bags open and ready to dump into the spreader. Kind of like a pit stop in NASCAR racing.

I threw a ton today of 32-0-8 on big country lawns. Three right next to each other all anywhere between 3 and 5.5 acres of manicured turf. Why anyone needs a lawn that size is beyond me but I'm glad they have their reasons!

I started off the day with a couple 2 acre deals.

Went through a ton of three way too....blanket apps today.

I put out 600 pounds on one property with a push spreader and that was enough for me!

The next time someone complains about your pricing, ask them how much their barber would charge to come over and cut their hair.

That is a bunch to push spread in one stop.
Maybe should have unloaded the ride on for that one??

Good point. Is there a kit or a clever work-around to convert a walk-behind spreader to a tow-behind?
Can you push a spreader in front of your mower?
Put an electric motor on the impeller?
Everybody has a couple of really big lawns--right?
