    1st year w/ a permagreen, any suggestions on herbicide mixes? I was thinking triplet spiked with speedzone at 1.5 oz. per 1k. I really want to do a number on ground ivy and prostrate!

    thanks guys!

    you might want to do a search. i remember alot of ultra owners smoked pumps w/ speedzone, the magum will most likly do the same. i run QUICKSILVER w/ MEC-D (better then 3-way) and have great results.

    Teeca, you are right about the pumps. Flo-Jets hold up to speedzone while the Shur-flows on the Ultra don't. I think the Magnum has a Shur-flow pump, but it's the 2 gpm which is different internally. Nitroman, you may want to call Pat or John at Perma-Green and see if any problems have been reported with the Magnums using Speedzone.
