    I would like to let everyone know that next year there will be a new fert machine available that will calibrate itself and keep you from wasting material
    This machine is and will do what it says. It is built by a company that is currently building machines now. This is no joke!

    Exactly. This will be a take off of the type of system that Lawn Doctor uses. It feeds onto a conveyor belt, and is driven by the speed of the machine - the slower the ground speed, the slower the fed into the impeller.

    Yeah I heard about that machine something like that but it will be controlled with electronic touch screen. You put the the type of fert and it will calibrate it for you!

    All I can say is $$$$$$$ and maintenance!

    I want to just keep it simple! Spreading fert is way to SIMPLE to get a machine that is that COMPLEX!

    Yes is may save your some $$$$ on fert, but the cost of the machine will probably offset the savings!

    Ok, i'll bite. Who's building them? Also, as far as I know the ground metered feed belt is patented by Lawn Doctor.

    I'm pretty sure the metered belt system IS still patented by LD. I just wonder if someone had done a similar design that is different enough to slide past the patent (or if the patent might b up). They also have the patent on the totally closed system for refilling their machines. the operator never has to touch chemicals out in the field.
