    Thanks

    I have 3 Z-sprays now. These things are the best machine I have owned. They do a great job. What specifically would you like to know?

    How many gallons per acre are you putting down? Also when spraying what is the smallest yard you feel comforfable using the machine on?

    Thanks

    I have mine set up differently then the stock machine. I have added my own nozzles. I use 1 gal/1000. I also only use 8 to 10 lbs psi. I have used it on as little as 5k but like it better on a 10k+ yard.

    We run the sprayer and the aerator. The zspray really outperformed our pg's and we don't have the all problems. Its a great product.

    Hey Morturf it's me again. Did you change to 1gal/1000 so you could add fert to the solution or to add safety margin to overlap? Or was there other reason.

    Is the maintenace/repair easy for non-mechanics? We have 3 PG units that always seem to be down more often than we'd like, but the repairs are simple. Just have been hesitant w/ z-spray repairs cause no shop here will touch them.

    Well, no fert. Just that I don't like how misty the pattern on the nozzle was so I re arranged the nozzles and did it the way I like. So far so good!! I don't know why a maintenance place wouldn't touch one of these, everything on them is off the shelf except the chassis. All the rest is stock.
