    Have any of you ran into a situation where you felt the Z SPRAY JR. was "too large" or "too much machine" for a lawn that the PG CENTRI was fine for?

    Man, I have the Z-spray SS, and the only time a lawn is too small to do with it, is if it has a 36" gate.

    I think the SS is stainless steel. I mean it is stainless steel, i know that, but it has a 200lb hopper 2x20 gallon tanks and trays to hold 2 50 lb bags. It is there "big boy". I do trailer it in a 14x7 trailer, dual axle that also holds my Lesco spreader, backpack sprayer, backpack blower, and up to 2 pallets of fert. Plus when I get it lettered it will be a rolling billboard.

    The z is a lot of machine, but I love it.

    Turfscape, help me out here,

    How do you treat a lawn, start with an outer lap, or do you just go back and forth? Is that a clear question?

    Thanks!

    Depends on the lawn I guess, but a counter-clockwise lap is good. I usually break off and do the back whie I am there then finish the lap in front.

    Ant,

    Spend the money.
    Get the smaller z if you have lots of fenced in properties.
    If not, The z-max does it all.

    BTW guys I apply in counter clockwise pattern, making smaller circles till I get to the middle. Then one straight pass up the middle. Seems to work well.

    What about applying a higer rate of herbicide while makingyour turns that might damage turf?

    I am open for suggestions, I am still using a straight line type pattern, and it works good on some lawns but not on all of them.

    Thanks!

    Ant,

    Oh, to answer your question,

    I now have a chest spreader and the z. That's about it. LOL

    I have a covered trailer for the z. Don't spend 8K and leave it in the rain. I also bought a 100 gallon tank with pump and reel to use as a nurse tank, and I can also use to treat lawns. The biggest issue you will have is have a tank sprayer for the smaller yards, and filling the z

    Spend the $

    I did.
