    I am in the market for a ride on sprayer/spreader. What has been your experience with your ride on? What model do you have? What was the cost? any info would be great. I have been looking mostly at the Z-Spray and the Permagreen ride on magnum

    Do you need one that will fit on a carrier rack (truck hitch receiver), or will you be pulling a trailer? Both are fine companies -- also, Z-Sprays come in different sizes depending upon your needs.

    Need more info from you regarding number of accounts & how big they are, but figure on spending $7000 or more for a new one.

    Give more details so others can offer their opinions. Thanks.:usflag:

    If I were you, I would wait a little while longer. I am in the market for new machines as my Ultras are on the way out and I am waiting for the kinks to be worked out of the machines that are hitting the market as we speak.

    Hopefully, some of these new machines turn out to match the hype.

    Nice restraint Larry, you were set up nicely for a plug:laugh:

But keep me in mind when your ready we will pretty much buy one of them!
