    Anthony or others with perma green ride on.
    How do you mix your herbicide for the tank.
    Trimec ounces per full 8 gallon tank?
    Thanks in advance.

    this is what works for me...
    i do all my mixing in 5 gal jerry jugs.
    i fill it 1/2 way add my chem. then fill it the rest of the way, mix it up and pore it in my hard-on sprayer tank.
    if you are useing a rate of 1.5 oz of chem. per 1000 sf you would mix 12 oz of chem in to make up 1 gal. of spray matt.because your rate is 16oz per 1000 sf in 4th gear (20 second elapsed time).
    use that chart on page 6 .it took me a few days to grasp it also..i am used to 1 gal/1000 sf not 16 oz/1000 sf...
    but it works ...
    if this is hard to understand e-mail me and i will give you my ph. number.
