    Hi all,
    been using Escalade II and Eject (generic Drive 75), anyway, at the encouragement of my chem dealer, I am trying out 4 Speed. I wanted to ask if any of you have mixed 4 Speed with Drive 75 before I applied it to any lawns. It passes a jar test, but I have learned in my 22 years as an applicator that just because a combo passes a jar test doesn't mean the combined pesticides will work well together.

    Thanks for any replies from anyone who has tried it. :waving:

    Bump. So, nobody has used 4 speed with Drive? Really, or is everyone just avoiding the pesticide forum because of that awful, annoying and obnoxious Freehand ad?

    I have no experience mixing the two. Why not? HOWever why mix two expensive products? You are better off with two hand sprayers...one for crab and the left for broadleaves. Or maybe you are strong and coordinated enough to wear two backpack sprayers.
    You would look like a one-man-band. Wear one on the front and one on the back. Battery-operated would be an advantage. Whatever you do--get photos, OK?

    yes, we run 4 speed and quinclorac (generic drive) together in a backpack for our service calls this time of year.
