Well just a note about a new unit that is coming out as we speak. I just ordered one today, it really looks nice. The Company making them is in Indiana and it is pretty neat machine. Here are some pictures of the machine.

Wow, cool unit. Looks like Wright Stander with 30 gal liquid and spyker spreader. I am figuring out a rig for my Z rider. Will probably use Earthway 12v spreader and 15 gal tank on front and spray boom on back. OR, if I wuss out of fabricating myself I may use units from http://www.spread4mower.com/

I took the fabricating plunge and mounted Earthway spreader to front of my Z and am waiting on welding shop to make bracket for 15 gal. spray unit. When all is done I'll post pics here in pesticide forum and give results of using it. I also have a Wright Stander and thought of mounting units on it, but it has big 61" deck which may limit accessibility to some areas.

I use the perma-green unit and it looks way more " manufactured " than the rig in the photos. the perma has some shorcomings though, -no serious agitation, somewhat scattered coverage on spraying, no boom, divots on turning, w/ no true ztr action. pull start, and you must baby the spreader. I swear a $20 wal-mart spreader does not need to be cleaned and lubed twice a day like this thing does. It is fun, and WAY better than walking or pulling a hose, but i'd like more info on that stander thing. Dave g
