    Ok, i am in the market for a ride on spreader/sprayer. Not looking for the cheapest unit. Looking for an effiecient unit. Suggestions? FYI, I see mostly permagreen around here.

    the can is open now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    my vote is get what seems to be the best for your budget and production, so get a zspray. we own three, ask anything you want.

    I was lookin at their site. Looks like a nice unit. How is the production compared to the permagreen? Looks like they have some nice attachments.

    it will run circles around them all, especially if you get the max, it puts our other two machines both a jr and intermediate with two extra tanks each to shame due to the wider usable spray width and larger tanks.

    Just make sure it will fit your gates. We have so damn many 32" gates here it ain't funny. I don't think the junior is even 32" to think of it.
