    the good,It pulls great plugs on even the driest lawns,turns very tight on the ends.very little time wasted turning and holds side hills well with the front castor
    locks.This unit is a money maker.
    The bad-It was to hot to spray after lunch today so I switched to aeration's. The exhaust coming out out at my feet was unbearably hot, I was afraid my shoes were going to melt. I don't know what it would do to my spray boots.
    When turning on a down hill grade the tires did not hold as good as I would hope.(most of my work is on mostly flat ground so I am not so concerned with this).And the hopper is so far from the standing platform that it is hard to see how much seed or fertilizer is left in the hopper.
    I am not negative on this unit and would buy it again,but the issue with the exhaust and the hopper so far out front it may keep me from putting on the spraying system.
