    I think the Turf Trackers are slow and cumbersome. It's all about time.

    We have been in the same boat as you. PG's, Ztwo's, Zsprays. Tried them all. Don't want to spill the beans, my advice is TURFO. It's new, and it will solve your probs. PM me if you are serious. Happy Holidays, american :waving:

    American, Were all STILL waiting to hear about this TURFCO machine. How about a comparison w/ the PG? Christmas is almost here i think we deserve a peek.:rolleyes:

    I have both a PG and a Turf Tracker. The TT is better from an operator's stand point on large properties because of comfort. The PG is better on smaller properties because you don't need a trailer, quick on and off. The TT is very handy spray-wise. 4" pattern on any one nozzle, 8' pattern, center, right, left, or 12' pattern, and then the hand gun. Sprays at 1/2 gal per M. The main problem I have with my TT is streaking. Watch your pattern carefully, as you don't overlap 50% like most systems. You open the Lesco hopper up about 1 1/2 numbers/letters more than normal and overlap about 18". It takes some getting used to, but once you do, it's not a big deal. I am actually looking to sell both my Magnum and TT and purchase a Z. (or this Turfco thingy American keeps touting, lol.) I have run 3 different TT over the past 12 years. If you have any questions PM me, or ask for Tad at 1-800-872-7050 (C&S turf care). They are very helpful for tech support.

    Look at proedgesprayers.com and see some unique sprayers. Maybe these will be of interest.

    Z-spray huh? That's funny, I was sure you said you never had one.

    Never owned a Z-Spray. Just demo'd them twice. (two different sizes). We are still in the market for buying one, but the negative for us is: they require a trailer. I did not mean this to be funny because I have the utmost respect for L.T.Rich. I consider those guys as top notch with high quality units that hold up a long long time.

    Never owned a Magnum either -- but we demo'd them more than once as well.

    Never owned a TURFCO unit either - merely demo'd one once.

    Hope this clears things up.:walking:
