    Why?

    Momentum has 2,4-D, Triclopyr & Clopyralid.
    Millennium has 2,4-D, Dicamba & Clopyralid. (or is it Triclopyr?)

    Either way, they're similar products, and cost similar amounts. Not much difference.

    I'd spray Trimec 992 or straight 2,4-D on a couple of rounds if you wanted to save money and straight Confront on one round.

    Riverdale's coolpower is marketed by lesco as (3way ester). Millineum has dicamba and Momentum has triclopyr. Check the lable and you will see Lesco's Momentum uses a cleaner and higher grade of 2-4-d than Millineum.

    If you want to kill henbit, a nasty weed in these parts, you'll want dicamba in your 3-way. I've used generics and others, tri-mec works the best. Dave g

    I have been using horse power ( amine) and cool power
    (ester) for a couple of years now and they both work very well for me. As i have started my early spring apps i see no weed activity left over from last year. Horse power has a faint odor and the cool power has a stronger odor of kerosene but not bad. If you want to rid your use of 2,4-D these products are tops on my list and will not change any time soon.
