    Just interested to see if anyone on here uses a Grounds Wheelie Sprayer? I just bought one and really impressed with it. If so What type Liquid Fertlizer do you use in it. It puts out 1 gallon per 1000 sq ft at any speed. Thanks!!!!!

    They look like a good investment, but I have one question...since you walk behind it you walk through chemicals all day right? I think I would buy one were it not for that. I currently use a backpack w/a boom on a long wand and walk bakwards to avoid walking through the herbicide as much as possible (yes I wear boots, etc).

    lawnboy 11 wear rain pants with your boots and have another smaller sprayer with straight clean water in it at the trailer to spray off your legs and boots off when done each job. This will keep you walking straight ahead and out of the chemicals. Make sure you spray yourself off the lawn to avoid a heavy dose that may yellow the grass.
