    Dont you think that you may be losing sales, people that might have held out for your unit, but instead you are not putting it out there and guys buy other machines instead of yours. Im not one to like losing sales, why would you?

    Very good point, just bought a few of the new Magnums with the spyker hopper and gears, awesome machine.

    sprayboy -- sorry if I was sarcastic on my above response, but I wanted to make my point. Turfco Bob & I are pushing TURFCO to bump up the date when pics, etc. can be published We'll see, but this will happen soon -- no matter what. (hopefully sooner than later). The price is $8495.00. IMO the T3000 outperforms any other ride-on. Great spread patterns (more than one spread width to choose from) and very fine spray patterns (also more than one to chose from). Plenty of spray to kill even the hard-to-kill weeds. All this on one unit, and it's fast, versatile, and accurate. It's the best unit we have ever tried. Creeping Charlie...no prob. And this unit is fast (I already said that). Lots of horsepower too (actually more than enough). Takes hills like they weren't even there.

    Previously I ran a PG every day. Now I wonder what they are good for. Z-Spray units too. I have tried PG Ultras & Magnums as well as Z-Spray Max & Junior. They do not compare. Nice thing about the PG units is you can haul them on a carrier rack, but they suck in many other ways. Same with Z-Spray units...cumbersome, and they won't ride on a pickup carrier rack safely....not to mention their "traction on hill problems".

    TURFCO's "T3000" is perfect for large properties as well as small lawns (I've used it on 4000 sq ft lawns as well as 365,000 sq ft properties so far). I haul it on a carrier rack behind my 3/4 ton GMC pickup truck. Ease of use, accuracy, reliability, durability -- oh yah. Plus, you can run it all day long without refilling the gas tank.

    I hope the above gives some detail without giving out too much info until TURFCO "lets it all out" soon. BTW a LCO in our state will be demoing our unit this weekend (currently has a Z-Spray).

    Thanks all, M.:waving:

    I just hope for your sake they are paying you well for that infomercial, it's actually almost sadly funny and scary all at once. Hey man I hope this machine is what finally gets you where you need to be but as for the rest of us we will be fine. No offense I've just had really bad experiences with Turfco aerators while working as a technical advisor for a national lawn care company, just not a pleasant experience I'll leave it at that.

    Natty, the closet unit you have is me in Dover, Delaware. I am here in the office and at the showroom all weekend if you want to come down and give it a shot. We have a tree farms and lawns right here at our Garden center that you can try it out on. PM if you are interested.
