Not sure--with a Permagreen you can tip it up on its nose to remove the remainder--then weigh. Feeling strong?
The permagreens aren't that bad to tip over on there front. I did it every day last year for the old company to wash out the fertilizer from under it. I can't with the ground logic though. I have the spray bar mounted on the front and don't think it would like all that weight on it. But, I might be taking the spray bar off. I'm not feeling too comfortable with the drift and running it at 40 psi, the pressure is dancing around too much for my liking...

If you stand a Permagreen on its nose--be sure to shut off the fuel valve first.
And remember to open the valve when you are done.
