    Anyone use there Perma Green spreader with Drive to kill crabgrass. I have to use it on a large scale and wondering if anyone applied it this way and if so how were your results. I also have a 300 gallon fiberglass Lesco sprayer but I hate pulling hose around, but will if it didn't work well with Perma Green spreader with you guys.

    Thanks for insights!!

    don't think i'd try it with the perma green spreader for the simple fact that drive really needs some agitation to keep it suspened until sprayed. You won't get that from that perma green tank, plus the low volume usage will probably play havoc with the pump system trying to spray the product. Just my Opinion.
  3. You can run anything you want through the PG, but you have to know how much to dilute it.

    Some may require you to make 2-3 passes inorder to stay within the label.

    Drive will stay suspended long enough to spray it out of the PG, you will need to mix it in a nurse tank that is well agitated before hand, and keep it agitated.
