    Okay, this is just bragging - but since my wife couldn't care less, you're the only ones who will care:

    I winterized 90 lawns today in 6:45 (not including my lunch, but WITH drive time in there). That's a 4.5 minute average with driving.

    How crazy is that? Makes me think I should just fertilize...

    Avg size = 6-7k

    Spyker Chest Spreader.

    Oh, and I work alone. No help.

    And you are putting it down at what rate?
    Oh yea, what are you putting down. Do you have a whole subdivision that you are doing all at once. Please explain:)

    I'm running straight urea for my winterizer and am running @ 2#/M .

    Today consisted of 3 different towns, but all very tight neighborhoods where I have awesome density.

    Hey, if I can't get excited about this, then I may as well shoot myself now. (Bring it on, you sadists.) :) :)

    Just you?? No help?
    It just seems pretty unusual, but then again I am realistic.
    Why not use a push spreader? Too slow?

    Yeah, too slow. Plus, here in the mountains, the wealthy folks all live up on the benches of the mountains, so very awkward terrain/hills/landscaping.

    Waaaaaay easier to just be able to walk through. And given the size of lawns, far more efficient.
