    I am looking at purchasing a 2003 permagreen spreader. Is there anything that i should be looking for or any known problems with these machines. How does it do for spraying herbicides?
    Any info would be helpful

    Wireing is often attacked by fertilizer and high humidity. Be prepared for corrosion problems. My PG Ultra Has about 800 hours--running fine--even starts with the battery (motorcycle batt)--knock on wood. Spark plug fouls often--I put in a new one about every 6 weeks.
