    If your lawns are under 10,000sqft a spyker w/ numatic wheels or run with the big boys and get the stainless steel Lesco,[ just dont lose it on the Highway at 70mph].......... :dizzy: ....Good Luck payup

    broadcast is the right tool, use a drop to topdress or reseed.

    I know your not Licensed in L & O and I guess I told you there is no inspector assigned to this area. But if you get caught it is a $ 5,000 Fine. I am Licensed and not that far away from you. You might want to talk with me. I have now retired from everything except some part time pest control. I have one LCO working under my license in the Cape Coral area and I am looking for someone in the Venice area. But I will only do it totally legal. I am not sure you are ready for that.

    BTW I have a bunch of specialty Equipment for sale from verticutter and hollow core to Skid Steers. Any in warm season Turf who wants to do renovation should jump on this equipment. I also Have tons of Landscaping Equipment for sale also.

    Is this a real question?

    I think if you can't answer this then perhaps you shouldn't do any fert apps. And if you belive me, a drop spread is definetley the best....LOL

    Not really!!

    actually, just reaching into the bag and grabbing handfuls, tossing them into the wind is a great plan, once you get down to 10 pounds or so in the bag, just grab the bottom of it and swing yourself in a circle, this is a gret way to apply! <smirk>...hey, you started it Enviro..and by the way, I actually have seen this technique at work on a 4 acre park! (he didn't get the opportunity to do it twice)
