    I seen these a few yrs back and now I can't find them.
    They used to be in Pro magazine. They are basically a 48 "
    sprayer that you can walk behind, and the wind is not a big factor with these. Please let me know if any of you have tried these , or know where I can get 1.

    I remember them, I used them before. Where to get one? I'd try a golf wholesaler. Those sprayers were popular for spraying greens.

    Thanks Dan, It was the Rogers brand

    I was hoping they made them self propelled, we get a lot of wind and
    I don't know how hard they are to push. But I have a lot of average size lawns 5000 - 12000 Sq ft. Have any of you used them , and have an opinion good or bad ??

    I have not used one myself, but the City of Edmonton uses them, and I have seen the system that they have. Setup is on a tractor with the windfoil on each boom, hydraulically operated. Nice little unit.
    I have also seen golf courses use them mounted on a Cushman.

    The Ecofoil 40" is 40lbs shipping weight and the 80" is 50lbs

    Greensfoil 40" 56lbs, 80" 70lbs.

    Hope this helps.
