    a buddy of mine who s in his late 50s and isn’t internet savvy wants me to ask the community about this machine. Do you like it how has it run for you? Is it better than belt driven machines? I have a dealer that will sell him on for 8500. I am trying to talk him into buying my 2017 t3100 because I need a zmax because I picked up a bunch of new commercial industrial sites. This is the equivalent to the exmark spreader sprayers.

    So no one owns a newer exmark spreader sprayer? I have read the past posts on older exmark but want to know someone’s opinions on a newer model.

    I have the toro model. Same machine as exmark.. I have been using it for 2 seasons now.So far its a good machine and has given me no trouble. I think I would prefer a z spray due to its gals/1000 capabilities but all in all a good machine.

    Thank you. No mechanical issues? How’s it on hills? The hydro drive good? Spraying any wetable powders?

    I only have a couple hundred hours on it but no issues. Seems fine on moderate hills, it has a low center of gravity with tank being mounted so low so its pretty stable. I dont spray wettable powders but the agitation in the tank seems like it would be sufficient for suspension.

    Hawk with a machine with agitation I would spray prodamin wdg and save a ton of money. 200 hours and no real problems is a miracle compared to other spreader sprayers like PG and Turfco.

    Also Hawk if you buy the .25 per thousand tips you can spray and acre and a half plus some. You can spray a lot with 20,gallons at a quart per thosand. You can buy the tips from exmark or toro.
