    We can charge for four step and two sprays. We have condos and office complexes very few homes. Works great you will like the outcome. It makes a better stand of turf cause of the steady feed with no ups and downs

    3 lbs of N?

    You better start watering.

    Yesterday.

    Your lawns gonna fry.

    Or is this how this fancy new toy goes down?

    How much does this stuff cost for a 50 lb bag? I haven't heard one peep about price.

    Which tells me it's expensive as hell.

    We are talking about spread it and forget it in this thread. Maybe you should look at the website regarding the product. #3 n is slow released over 6 mths...

    Thanks grassman..let me ask a few more ? about the z. I am new to it.

    You were spreading a 16' pattern?

    Is there too much coming out to do a single with overlap?

    i was doing a 10-12 ft pattern actually. basically it spread similar to the products i use already, but spread a bit farther as it is a bit bigger sgn.

    i was recommended to do a double app(half rate twice) changing the direction of app to eliminate any posobility of streaking as it would last the whole year!

    oh, and seedpro, dont forget that this 3lbs of N lasts the while season metered out very slowly and evenly.

    We have not used our machine yet..JR. That's what killing me is the calibration. Especially with a product that costs as much as it does...We run in circles with our spreaders. When you do back and forth do you still throw to wheel mark? I calculated 100lbs for my lawn. Ended up with 20lb left over. I will have to go over again w/lesco push to spread the 20lbs. I want the 3lb high rate not the low.

    It will not burn, I have used it and its very very good for the prepaid or commercial contract market, using it now too.
