Mercedes Cultivator of SA

Any of you guys have experience with this cultivator? Mercedes shows good test results in these test - however test results and actual results in Florida are often two different things and I am interested in hearing your experiences if any including of course the good and the bad.

Here is the test I am referring to for your guys review also just in case you are interested.

Thanks

Mike

I've heard of it, but don't have an experience with it. It looks interesting but we've heard promises of "superturf" before.

Some more info here:

I think I'll sit back and watch Mike, thanks for bringing it to mind.

I have no experience with it either and there is little information out there (other than the two list that you posted and HO type forums that list anything about it and one of those links is the owner of the name, we know how the claims on that work) however the test data shows it was commercially available so that means it is out there.

I too am always a little worried to say the least about claims about any super turf ....but it appears from the test data that it has a lot of plus sides so far and that was what I was hoping that others on here had experience with it.
So if you are reading this and you do please speak up!
