Anybody in the business that can help me with any info? ill be buying used equipment if possible, what kind of setups are everyone running? really appreciate any help

    First contact your dept of ag to see about lice.

    Read all the post you can on here.

    ask questions on here you will get some good reply and some bad.

    Equipment- push spreader and a skid sprayer and a back pack sprayer would be nice to start.

    Some have ride on spreader/sprayers.

    study and read.

    Try some stuff on your own lawn.

    Good luck Charles Cue
