    thanks for the advice gregory, ive been looking @ both of these for about a year and have tested both I feel the z is more bang for the buck they have made some changes since i drove the z about a year ago and i hear that it only made it better

    I have about 55 hrs on my z-max and we love it!! The amount of work I get done while our PG's are broken in the shop is priceless. Overall it is a much more solid machine! Our next machine will be another Z!

    Had a z jr for 4 years, upgraded to the new z-max this year with the 50 gal capacity. Have never run a permagreen but for my applications the z is great.

    Besides a new PG Magnum, we are open-minded regarding a Z-Spray JR. The JR's are fairly new....anybody have input regarding these?

    hey sprayboy the z max w 50 gal do you ever have any problems with it being to bulky. our average property size is about 12kft and im now debating between the zmax or the intermediate. also have you ever had any problems with overspray on ornamentals

    I bought my second Permagreen Magnums because I like the boomless system. I also redesigned the spray system so I can cover 10-11 feet with my Permagreens. Booms get in the way and slow you down. I rarely use a backpack sprayer now. However the Z can be setup with a boomless system also. I would agree the Z is more machine for the money. I like its dual tank sytem and bigger spreader. I have a question for Z-spray owners. I hear it has some trouble on hills and gets away from operators. Is this going up, down, or on slopes? It would be nice if the Z was four wheel drive.

    i know the jr is boomless...when i called them they told ne they redesigned the jr in 07 and lowered everything to cure the hill problem ..it would be nice to see a 4wd one.but thats something else that can break or wear out..
