    Can anyone tell me if there is a fertilizer spreader that is made for a zero turn. I am getting a ferris 4500 and haven't come across anything that looks like it would work with a z. Your recommendations please.

    Thank you

    YUeah,...these are GREAT for getting pesticides all over you. We had to laugh one day at a guy that came into Lesco just COVERED in yellow. It was all over his chest and neck, too. he was telling us how great his spreader on his Z worked.

    Runner, I have to disagree with you here. I spent 13 years pulling a hose and spraying lawns, coming home covered in overspray from my knees down. Since I built a spread/spray machine out of an old boat anchor (skag turf runner) I do not have any discernible overspray on me. My shoes are clean, my pants are clean, my shirts are clean...and I can treat twice the amount of lawns per day.

    sod king,

    that sounds really interesting...would love to see a picture - how did you do it? how well does it work and how do you calibrate it? Thanks!
