    Does anyone know when this unit will be available. Looks like a great piece of equipment for big commercial props.

    A 100 gal z spray, is that really a sound investment? This responce is in no way a rip on lt rich. I dont own a z spray, i have operated them and all reviews on their equipment are very good, good machine,good company,good customer service,all facts! My take on this (JMHO) 100 gallon z spray, ok, by the time you factor in the weight of the water, the frame,plumbing,engine,operator station,battery and all the dry chemical components, you will have a very heavy,cumbersome machine! For the same money you could buy a CUT capable of spreading,spraying and many other tasks with diesel power and the same or better ground psi. I doubt this prototype will ever see full production.

    I second that, to much weight.

    Thinking with the wide stance it could handle the hills on our commercial accounts. But I'm not sure how the single wheel in the back will do on the hills. I have no experience with this set up. Reminds me of the grasshopper mower.
    The 100 gallons I could spray pre emergent on areas to small for our kabota tractor. Put a 100ft of hose for hand spraying, might be a productive machine.
