Turf Ex RS7200

Currently have a Permagreen Magnum. Looking to either buy another one as a backup or move up to a different machine and keep the PG as a backup. Has anyone tried the new Turf Ex machine? I have a demo setup next week, but was just looking for some feedback from anyone first.

Thanks!

I started a thread on this over the winter. The guys that had seen it at trade shows said it looked felt like a Tonka Toy. Perhaps your demo will prove them wrong?

Check out the Ground Logic Pathfinder as well. I believe you may find it superior to both a PG and the Turfex in the compact ride-on applicator category.

I have had this unit sitting in the shop since Friday. I have not spread one pound of fert with it yet, sold a big job so I have been working on that. First impressions, bulky unit, no sight gauge on liquid tank, very peppy-may tear up turf easy. I have driven the unit around the shop and also put some water in the tank to test the spray pattern, the spray pattern looks nice, supposed to be the same width as the fert pattern. Being a small guy, 5'6", I feel I am far away from the handles, when I turn, I feel like im really stretching my one arm to make the turn. Im planning on getting out and spreading some fert today....I can also take some pictures and post them.

Also, the B&B carrier rack wont work without some modifications that I wasnt willing to do because Im not sure if we are buying this machine or not.

More info, like how many hours you put on it, how it sprays, etc?
