    Anybody using Quicksilver herbicide? It is more of an adjuvant (makes herbicides work better) than a stand alone. It will seriously kick an herbicide in the butt. Reduces the time until you see results to hours. It also does an awesome job when you mix it with Drive 75. I like it because you can actually use less (20-25% less) herbicide with it. This can be a good marketing tool for eco-conscious customers. the stuff ain't cheap ($100 for an 8oz bottle) but that little bottle goes a very long way. 1 ml will treat 1000'

    i used it as a stand alone and wasnt impressed but i will try it with another and give it another shot
  3. My usual supplier stopped offering Speedzone, so I started to use Quick Silver and Trimec 992 mixed. It works much better then Trimec alone and I feel its worth the money.

    I also use lower rates of Trimec and Speedzone and add some sticker.

    Just go to http://www.pbigordon.com/ put in your zip code and see what other stores carry it. The closest Lesco dealer didn't carry it but next town over Lesco dealer did so they shipped it free to my house.
