    A friend of mine just bought two z-sprays from Rich Products and absolutly loves them. He was able to let two guys go and do the applications himself and one part time helper. He had the Perma - Green - well thats enough said.

    I am looking at a perma green.... what was the problem? Did not like them or what? I use liquid currently which is on a trailer witha 300 ft hose reel. Time and money is issue for me so I have been looking at the perma green. What else is out there?

    The Perma-Green is a great machine, but the z-spray is much faster and more manuverable. I can do about 6 acres in about 1.5 hours. Also you can travel much more sq. ft. with two 20 gallon tanks and a 200# fert hopper.

    Thanks for the reply. Now where do I go to check these units out? Is there a web site or anything?

    I talked to Tom Rich at the Detroit Outdoor Power Equip Expo. What a cool guy! Designed and builds the Chassis himself, then paints it with Line-X bedliner material. Let me tell you, it is a SWEET unit. I no longer want a Perma Green at all. The motor on the spreader is hydraulic for durability. A 200 lb hopper with 2 50 lb bag trays lets you roll out with a lot of fert. The spray heads have larger droplets for more control of drift. I am in love with this machine.

    Have a Z spray ordered. I drove 3 1/2 hours last week to Lebanon, IN to demo one. Ordered it 2 days later. Can't wait for it. No more pulling out 300 ft. of hose on large properties.

    Purchased a unit "sight unseen" in December after talking with Tom Rich a couple of times on the phone and reading lots of posts here. So far it has exceeded my expectations in quality and performance. Adapted a foam marker to it today. On large properties it can triple production over hose --- not to mention the exhaustion factor.
