    I e-mailed my Lesco store for info. When i get it I'll send it along.

    The only drawback I see is a lack of a sprayer system and that the propeller speed is determined by ground speed, it could be a problem on the turns.

    I saw it today at New England Grows. It looked good. Built a bit lighter duty than the Perma-green. It also didn't spray liquid which is a drawback. I did like the drive mehanism however.

    Gregson Clark was also there with their large area machine, Wow talk about productivity!

    Hamons,

    Who makes that unit? I started a thread about those type sprayers

    I was thinking of the HPS and one of those if the total cost is less than a permagreen.

    Great price $2600- $2700.00. Designed for those who do not need the spray feature of a Perm-A-Green. Hydraulic Drive with a easy forward/ reverse handle system. Very easy to operate.
