    We will be introducing a new line of ride-on spreaders and spreader / sprayers.

    We are looking for a few companies in the midwest who would like to field test (abuse them) this summer.

    We have 2 models. One will be a basic ride-on spreader with the lowest center of gravity and hill side stability of any ride-on spreader in the industry. This was shown at the EXPO in 2007 and will be going into production this fall after the field testing is completed.

    Our high end model has a full spray tank and large spreader hopper. It too sticks to hills like a billygoat even when fully loaded. This model will go into product Spring 2009. There are a few people on LawnSite who know the specifics on this machine and yes it is impressive and performs like nothing anyone has ever seen.

    Again, we will require no pictures or specifics about the key features. You may only discuss performance and ease of use. Both models will be featured at the EXPO in Louisville this fall.

    Please send me an email.

    Thanks

    Very funny you asked.

    Not yet, we build 3 of them for testing but I wasn't that all impressed. They drove and performed like several other models on the market with articulating frames which isn't our game plan. It has to be the best in it's class or why make it.


    I had a revolation this week while driving which is normally how they happen. Long drive, nothing to do but think how can it be done better, with the kids in the back seat say..."are we there yet, are we there yet..." is how I come up with most of our new products, or me just driving around the country visiting dealers and sales reps.

    Anyway, we are going to build a protoype chassis over the next few weeks... If it works as planned it will be put on the fast-track with our top dressers and actually share the same frame as them which means the top dresser chassis will have to start all over but it will be worth it.

    Any yes, there will be field testing of the unit this spring once we know the chassis handles like we want.

    Really looking for IN, KY, OH....to keep them close together, but I have seen the hills around your place and would consider VW because that would be a real test. Also since you have one of our seeders that would put you at the top of the list as well.

    Hi david, can we assume that this machine will be a zero turn, not articulating frame?

    Hello david. Will lawn solutions be @ the new england grows show in boston early next year? If so, will you have a prototype spreader sprayer to display.
