    Looking to purchase a Permagreen Machine before the season begins. Never drove nor tested one but heard good results. Is this something you should use for smaller yards or is it mostly for bigger yards? Can you control the spray so you don't get much drift in tight areas. Any responses good or bad is appreciated.

    Use the search function, as there are a ton of threads about Permagreen...
    The Magnum has broadcast and trim nozzles. The trim nozzles only spray within the width of the tires and works great in tight areas. The machine also comes with a little spray bottle you can mount to hit tight areas as well. I don't like the bottle, but that's just me...Good luck...I'm in Lancaster and if you have any other questions, let me know..

    I would love to test run one. Just to see how much time and sweat that I save compared to walking

    I bought a magnium last spring, really like it. I sold all my spray equiptment and using the pg for everthing this year. it really makes the job alot easier. if you can, get the magnium. they really made some good improvements last year with the honda engine, new transmission and spray system.and its alot easier to work on than the older models.

    What's the total width? Won't fit through small gates will it?
