    Play it safe and use a stabilizer and get more mileage out of the load. I did a program with Hydrexx (made by Agrotain) Just like making your own Umaxx or Uflexx. I also belive AAT is selling there own N stabilizer

    I use spray 2 gallons a minute, and cover 1000 sq ft in 30 seconds. I am filling 150 gallons with 100 pounds urea that I melt in the netting of my tank while it is agitating and also add 1.5 gallons of 28-0-0 slow release coron to the tank. From my own lawn, fescue, I have seen ridiculous growth. My customers lawns which are mainly bermuda, I haven't seen anything worth writing home about. We are about 80% out of dormancy here in Atlanta. It usually takes me a good ten minutes to melt down a 50 pound bag of urea. I use the spray gun to evenly melt it down.

    When you say netting, are you talking about a net/mesh bag that fits inside the lip of the lid on your tank? If so, any idea where I can get one? I've been trying to find one, but no luck.

    Spraytek, check "Gregson-Clark Spraying equipment"

    They have those netting bags.

    Thanks! I just ordered one the other day. I have a basket on my Toro rig, but it wasn't big enough to fit a 50# bag. Not to mention splashing everywhere while melting. I'm going to have to rig something up so it can use the strainer with my other rigs since all of them have different sized lids.
