Anything cheaper than momentum?

My Lesco dealer recommended the liquid momentum to deal with my broadleaf problem. At $60 a gallon that is a bit steep for me. I realize that gallon would probably last me a very very long time but it's still a lot of money. Are there cheaper but as effective alternative or should I just shell out the money?

He did say that I could get in a granular form for $30 but I recall reading somewhere that the granuals are not as effective as the liquid. Any suggestions?

Man, there is alot cheaper. a standard 24d, and a personal favorite is Triplet. I got a jug of triplet 2 1/2 gallons for $58.00 at the co-op.

Three-way, Triplet, Trimec, etc. would save you some money. Momentum is a better herbicide IMO. 2,4-D will only give mediocre results on many weeds.
I also like Eliminate, but costs about the same as Momentum.

If you only need one small jug, why not get the better product?

Are the granuals just as effective?

are you putting this on customers lawns or your own? if you are applying it on customer's lawns and don't know what weed b gone is then i'm scared.

like the others said stick to liquid, 3 way, trimec, triplet. and if it is your own lawn and you are just spot treating go get the weed b gone from lowe's...it is a selective herbicide just like the others.

Sorry I had a brain fart and was thinking about Round Up. Does Lesco carry 3-way, trimec, or triplet. If not where else can I get it?
