    I just closed a deal to mow 5.5 acres and the customer is wanting all the add ons. What would be the best equipment to do fertilizing and over seeding on a property of this size. Does anyone use an ATV on large properties?

    JD Gator works well for liquid ferts. hold a tank nicely in the 6 wheel model but I doubt if you want to spend the $$$$$ on a gator for 1 prop. Sub it out

    They make an electric power- spreader attaches to the front of a Z.

    You can get battery-op ("spread-4-mower") spreader-attachments for walkbehinds and z's. we recommend you just get a good Earthway or Spyker120lb capacity $250-$350 walk spreader that throws a 35 foot width for anything less than 7 acres, which can be done by one operator in less than 2 hours.
