Spreader/ Sprayer help

I am currently looking in to several brands of spreader/sprayers and I am unsure if there is a performance difference to be seen on our average properties
The Turfco T3000 is about $10'000
Permagreen I can not locate a price
Spyker- I liked at the GIE expo but I can not locate their price
Prizelawn- has a nice ride on but only has a add on tank

All we have ever used was your cheap spreaders from Co-Op
($325.00 broadcast $60.00 Scott's drop)
And couple of the ride ons made by cubcadet
which we love them but as they are old and wore out they are no longer avalible.
All of out lawns are flat to slight rolling.i am interested in the permagreen but can not locate a price, can any one help?
Thanks.

A new Permagreen Triumph is going to run you almost 8k. That's a lot of $35 lawns....

I'm not too sure about the Spyker, but I've used both the Permagreen and the Turfco 3000. My own preference is the Permagreen (maybe I'm just more used to it), but we have some guys on this forum who swear by the Turfco unit as well. Are you planning on using the tank for liquid apps while you're spreading? If not, there may be less expensive "spread-only" machines.

I think I like the permagreen design better as it looks to be smaller sized overall ( assumption)

We use several of the old cubcadet ride on spreaders that have drop in tanks and they work great but now, 7 years later they don't make them, which is fine as the drop in tanks are to small for my personal prefferance.

I like each of the machines permagreen and t3000 each equally just for different reasons .
I feel the t3000 may be to big for a 5k sq.ft. Post app.
