    Just got my T3000 delivered. Having purchased a z spray and z plugger, both had damage on delivery, not LT Rich fault. I fully expected damage today, I was surprised to see that the cardboard barely had a dent. I was pretty miffed that it took 20 days to get here and the salesman didn't tell me there would be no battery and with the temps being around 8 deg I couldn't pull start the machine to move it. Living on a state highway it could have been stolen when I left to get a battery with all the scrap metal thieves. I did buy the additional spray tank with nozzle so I will have a dedicated tank and nozzle for post emergent crab. I think this will be easier to teach a new tech for hills over trying to teach how to crab across a hill on a z

    Have you owned a T before? What made you get one over a LT rich?

    I still own a z spray, z plugger, permanent green. I noticed it was easier to have a new guy learn on a pg. I don't prefer PG so looking at this machine thought I would give a shot, plus with the dedicated tank and nozzle I can run post emergent crab control on it with no waste. I don't like how I lose a lot of product when I switch back and forth between tanks on my z. The hose, pump and boom have to clear on each switch over. I think it will be better on hills, I did some property damage going across a hill, hit a monster dog crap tires broke loose and bent a fence post over. That can't happen with the t3000

    I thought u didn't like ur Ground Logic?

    I just talked to Brice today and ordered our 7th, 8th and 9th machines.

    The newer units look awesome and have many nice improvements!!!

    Will have two machines priced low if someone is looking for well maintained machines.

    When it runs well its awesome. I really think it's the best fleet machine to throw a newb on. Hoping we figured out the culprit of our issues and can stay ahead of them with preventative maint.

    I tried to tell you!

    This is our third season and even though we have had a few minor issues with them (as one will with all machines), they have been great for us.

    same here we are ordering our 3rd ground logic they are so simple and easy to transport on racks.....really have made us more efficient....they are perfect for residential lawns....if i had a lot of commercial properties then a z would be the fit but there smaller units are not very conducive for transporting.....ive only had slight issues on our oldest unit 2 years old now.....belt breakage and set screw replacement.....but that's it.

    I wanted to look at them so their rep was going to bring one to me. Never did reschedule. I heard a rumor their biggest client isn't continuing to buy t3000s.
