Permagreen Triumph

Anyone seen the redesigned Permagreen triumph? Just hit their website couple days ago. Interesting, looks like they lowered the center of gravity.
Supposed to have some demos by november. They will be at GIE also.

HA! Yeah,...After trying to charge us $2000 to replace motors in our current models, they want us to look further into buying another unit that will be obsolete in a few years? Sorry...There is just getting to be too many other manufacturers out there who are excelling in the area, and the sooner PG gets over themselves and starts coming to reality, the better. They are just WRONG on the $1500 and some odd dollar price for their "upgrade" on the Ultras. What's next? Same thing for the Magnums? Nope...next sprayer I buy, I will be looking HARD toward the end of the alphabet.

Lawn solutions has a machine in development as well. If its engineered like their aerators, it will be worth looking into!

This is exciting:
http://permagreen.com/triumph/

Glad to see it is only .55 inches long. LOL. Improved brakes--a nice touch. Hand operated tranny shift--good improvement. Hand operated, on the fly pattern adjustment--good idea. Easy calibration--I will believe it when I see it. I hope they just fill those nooks and crannies around the transmission cooling fins with silicone so fert cannot accumulate on top of the "Super Duty" tranny.

Yes...the LS will be a hydro. And while I am not at liberty to comment about it in any way, I can also say that it will be state of the art. Great ideas incorporated into the design, that are really such common sense. It will have everyone saying things about many features like. "THAT'S a good idea!

It looks funny. Our next purchase will be a z mini max but the lawn solutions machine will be interesting to look at as well. I hope Lawn Solutions picks a better marketing technique than turfco did. Releasing it to a few individuals who blog about how great a top secret machine is just turned me off. I lost all motivation to buy when they chose to use that marketing idea.

Any word if it will be at the GIE? Or is it too far off?
