    Just wondering if there's anyone that's spliced into their PG with a wand on say a 15' foot hose with a low pressure nozzle to edge with, instead of backpacking or using the little bottle. I've heard of people doing it, just wondering if anyone here's had any success with it.

    Thanks.

    Could you put a T on the drain. Then hook up the hose.
    I thought about this awile back just havn't tried it.
    Lawn Dr. has machine like the PG and it has a wand.

    IS there a quick and easy way to calibrate the PG machine? I just received mine today. Took it for a test drive! Looking at the directions, they have more charts and graphs but the machine looks simple enough to get it right. Any help would be great!

    I supose it could be done. You'd have to be sure it is calibrarted correctly.

    Where would you keep the hose? Wraped around the tank maybe?

    I think it would be to clumsy and to time consuming, wraping and unwrapping the hose. The little bottle does a good job, its quick, efficient. One of the purposes of having the ride-on is speed, no?

    Talked to John in sales from PG yesterday. Ordered it 12:30 pm yesterday, it's in my garage 1:30 today. Not bad for a trip from IN to MN. Gotta like that service so far. Anyways, he said to run a "T" off of one of the nozzle hoses and a person could run about 10 feet of hose or so. I only need it for a couple of banks that I do, where their bushes are about 1' from the curb and it's 40' long. Figured if you could park the machine and run a hose for 10' or so either side, then move up 20 feet and do it again, it'd be faster than squeezing a bottle. I'm like other guys on here too, don't want a backpack anymore, that's why I'm getting away from my 200 gallon Lesco sprayer, less contact (or chance thereof) will be a plus for me. Spose I'll just have to work one out.
