I saw a T3000 in action today. There is now the first non PG ride on in NW IA. (sorry to day its not us yet) All American has it. He looked a rookie on it. Then an hour later Wittrock mowed the lawn.



So what does a Z look like so I know one if there is ever one in iowa?

While running estimates today, I saw 3 ride-on sprayer/spreaders (not counting our 3 that we run everyday)). All 3 were T3000's. (no PG's, no Z's).

All American Turf Beauty is a quality outfit. They have 6 or 8 branches throughout Iowa & southern Minnesota, but their main office is just west of Des Moines. So if they have one near you, they probably have some T's here.

One of my guys did a commercial account today. Owner came out and asked if he could take a picture of the T3000 while it was treating the property. Said the unit was cool, and he had never seen anything like it. This was in Pleasant Hill, IA.

I made a unit from my 32" stander4 years ago, as we have so many damn narrow gates. I went to Turco's website, there are no specs on the units. How wide are they?

JB, there is a cruise lock pedal to lock the speed so you can be one hand free. We tried a pedal like a truck gas pedal linked interactive to work like a gas pedal and it was scary. Guys would step on the machine not paying attention and ZOOOOMMM it would jump out from under them. So no dice on an interactive gas type pedal.

Turfcobob? I am still making some considerations about the ride on sprayer spreaders and am looking to see if you have any located in the Milwaukee area. I would really like to look at one up close and possibly drive it a little bit. I have had the money set aside for one for the last few years but each year I just couldn't justify using that money for the spreader sprayer over another piece of equipment we may have needed, but I think this may be the year where it finally happens.

Please let me know.

Lawns of the Year

Last month, the "Best Lawn of the Year" was awarded to a customer of ours in West Des Moines, IA (this is in the most exclusive/expensive area in central Iowa - Glen Oaks).

Then last week, Windsor Heights, IA also chose their "Lawn of the Year" ... both are customers of ours, and both are treated by TURFCO T3000 units. The proof's in the pudding. Thanks TURFCO.

Machine is very good and it is very efficient. Works great on small and large properties.

I have to say i am greatly disappointed in turfco's backing of this product. The cruise control (foot speed control) has a plastic fitting that is easily stripped. I cannot find an aluminum or steel substitute any where.

They finally came out with a skid plate to protect the hydrostatic transmission. They tell you you can go over curbs and show it on youtube, but the bolts shear off easily (based on our less than 1 year old unit that shows almost no damage to the trans yet a bolt sheared off and cracked the aluminum case). They will not warranty the trans and it is $1200 to replace.

Our B&S engine bent a valve rod...b&s mechanic will not warranty and turfco will not help us or give us someone from briggs to deal with.
