    For a non-selective post-emergent herbicide we use Eraser. It is cheap and we have had good results with it. We pay $49 for a 2.5 gal jug.

    razor pro is the exact same but also around $50 per 2 1/2 gal. just dont use it on anything you dont want killed. I get a kick every spring when some home owner who has decided to do-it himmself and spot sprays the dandilions with round-up, a week later you see dead spots eveywhere!

    This year I'm going online and buying. No more $150 at Lesco for 2.5 gal Roundup pro. Looks like they all have the same main ingrediant:41% Glyphosate. Why pay for the name.

    Where are you buying yours from?

    I like it for large jobs when I'm using the skid sprayer, but for beds, parking lots, etc.. where I'm using a backpack I've come to like the Quick Pro. The dry formulation is a lot handier than having to refill a tip n' pour or using a pitcher, or whatever. A quicker result too, which obviously makes it an easier sell. (or should I say the check comes a lot faster!)

    I use the round up pro in dry form also. It costs only $2 per pack which makes 1 gal and works great.

    G.M. Landscaping,
    I have been buying the Eraser from a local farm supply store. Check with one in your area they might carry it.

    Quick Pro is fast and easy in the dry formulation but is not nearly as safe as far as human exposure(check out the PPE requirments), using an off brand glyphosate is fine, as long as concentration is 41% or higher, Round Up Pro does have a really good sufactant, but you could just use something cheaper and add you own, save some $$$ and get the same results.

    Has anyone ever substituted kerosene for the water in their mix?

    While using a non-selective herbicide? No! While completing rangeland spraying, yes - all of the time. A certain herbicide controlling Mesquite trees require the use of kerosene as a spray adjuvant/oil - for spot application.
