    Anybody try one of these out yet? Wanted to hear some feedback before investment in one, I do a lot of small residentials and granular + a spray application from my spreader would be great.

    Haven't used one, but there are guys near me that do. I think i can see myself getting the synergy or the one shot in the future.

    I bought one for the start of this season. I used it to apply pre-emergent in backyards that I can't fit the z-spray. I love it!!!!! 5,000,000 sq. ft. and didn't drag one hose. :clapping:

    i have used it but i think it needs to be tweaked a bit so the wheel doesnt slip and give u incosistent pressure.

    I've had a little problem with the wheel slipping. Yesterday I realized that the nozzle was slightly turned to the left and was getting some spray on the wheel. After I adjusted it, it has stopped slipping so far.

    I don't do many applications and the Synergy works well for me. I would definitely buy one again if I had to.

    How good of a kill did you get considering the low output? I would love one but want to make sure it is effective and not missing weeds.

    Pretty good, but I've never used a tank/hose to compare it.

    Just put one on one of my pushers. We shall see. Definately makes the whole thing noticeably heavier.

    You will get good weed-control if you have the mix right. your spraying the same amount of herbicide per K, just less water.
