Our mowing outfit uses ZTR stand-on mowers. (like Z-Sprays). They are limited on hills/slopes and wet turf. Going up hills is dangerous -- popping wheely's just before they tip over. Zero turning on wet turf also causes turf damage.

Ground Logic is merely an improved Permagreen. Good luck with that unless you are a serious LCO.

We tried the Ground Logic, and we tried (all sizes) of Z-Sprays.

We run three T3000's. Here's a photo of two of my T-Men who just rolled in. One of these T's treated 31 lawns today (over 750,000 square feet).

Can put my Z on any hill you can put your T on Period.
So you use ZTR mowers does that mean your guys are tearing turf?
Maybe if the turf is wet you just make a little wider turn (Duh)
31 lawns, average day nothing special.

750k sq ft of turf in one day is quite a jag.

750K sq ft worth of material and the T on a 3/4 ton pick-up almost don't believe it. Again an average day for a Z.

I just went to the GL website and called. The guys were very helpful and very nice. answered every question I had. The only down fall is theyre in ohio. The only way I could demo this is to fly to Kentucky. haha. BUT they were super helpful. It seems to be build like a PG but better with less bells and whistles but does the same job. Something for me to think about in the future. Right now im running a PG

I was so familiar with the PG Magnum and liked it so much that I bought my first GL without even trying it out. Since they we have bought 5 more. Got 3 more coming as after Jan 1st.

Glad you called and they took care of you. I have NEVER had an issue of them not taking my call or calling me back.

The GL is a glorified PG mag. Much nicer and easier to use.
Can't say enough good about the unit.

Plus they are 2-3000 less then other ride ons.

Good Luck!

I do a few sites that are 1 and 1.2 million square feet by myself in one day with a Z Max.

Rodney creech,
I did tell them I spoke to you via phone the other day. he obviously knew you and had kind words. I do have one last question. I know you said you use yours for 2 yrs then swap them out. How many hrs do you have on them at the end of 2 yrs and do you usually have any problems at all inbetween then?

Thanks,
Thomas
