    I bought a new Z-Spray max last year right after the show in Louisville. It has proven to be an excellent investment.
    Now that we have seen what a money maker it has been, I decided to order a 2nd unit. I ordered the Junior and opted for the extra liquid tanks instead of the compartments to haul extra granular fertilizer.
    I'll post pics of both once it gets here!!

    Congrats on the new baby!

    Glad to see that you are weathering the 300+ percent increace in fertilizer prices. I haven't even CALLED about fall app prices yet, I'm too afraid. I have a feeling I'm not going to be doing much fertilizer next year.

    What did you have to pay for the Junior? How many more gallons does it hold with the extra tanks?

    each extra rear tank hold 7 gal. i think we paid about 8200 for it, but my dad would know better since he paid for it.haha. so the junior had 18 gal tank to start and we added 14 more. i think it will be better this way.

    I am sorry to be a bother, but how does that compare price-wise to an Intermediate Z?

    The intermediate is a little more expensive. The big thing is the width. The Junior is about 4-6 inches narrower. We needed something a little smaller to compliment our Max.
    The intermediate has a 200 pound hopper over the 100 that the junior has. It isn't that big of a deal to us between those 2 as we already have thet 200 capability with the max.
    We should get the unit either Friday or next Tuesday.
    I'll be sure to post some side by side pics!

Has the ability to hold separately 3 different products. 100' of hose on the Cox hose reel. We think you will be very happy. We enjoy customizing our machines to our customers needs.

    Yes, on the Jr36 we have to use a 2 Turbo flood jet tip to spray 8', so no boom. The regular Junior uses 4 Air Injected tips that have to have 20" spacing between them, which makes the front of the machine 40" wide.
