    Magnum owners, would you benefit from a spray system upgrade to the Magnum? The upgrade would spray 40% wider and have a visible trim nozzle that sprayed exactly 6" past the left (throttle side) wheel with uniform coverage.
    The upgrade would dramatically cut time on acreage and cut trimming time on all lawns.

    The upgrade would yield the same square feet per tank as original equipment. You would also be able to switch back to the original P.G. spray system very easily within 3 minutes. 10 minute installation with no drilling to the Magnum.

    How many would have a need for this?

    I read you post earlier....but forgot to reply.

    I rarely use my trim nozzle, but I would be interested.

    How are you doing this?

    What is the cost?

    Thanks,
    RC

    Sounds good to me, fill us in with more details...or pm me. If you've read my posts you'll know this is an achilles heel for me.

    I rarely use my trim nozzle also. I need to get some time on the prototype before I go into detail about the trim nozzle.

    The upgrade is all stainless steel.

    The cost will be $400-$500.

    I'll be sure to let you know. I have not read your post about the pg.

    "Achilles heel" is this regarding the spray system?

    I would have to agree!

    If it is something that I barely use....and have gotten by for three years with it the way it is, that kind of money probably isn't worth it to me!

    For that money you could probably just go with a bigger pump and tip and save a ton of money! JMO!

    I'd be interested in what this mod includes. Pictures etc. Price seems a bit steep, but your products are quality, and you need to make it worth YOUR while to manufacture/distribute. Keep us updated.

    Any other mods? Thumb throttle maybe? My right hand goes numb trying to keep full throttle!
