    I have used Momentum this spring for spot treating weeds. I am thinking of switching to SpeedZone:

    3 hour drying time vs. 24-48 hours with Momentum
    Caution vs. Danger rating
    better for ground ivy than Momentum

    Yes, I know it should not be used with the temps are over 90 degrees.

    Anyone using/thinking of using SpeedZone for spot treatments?

    I use speedzone and think it is a much better product than Momentum.

    I use Momentum, I think it's a much better product than speedzone. :)

    Plus I use it all year long, and haven't had a problem yet when it's 90+ out.

    Well, except for that one yard....... :eek:

    I love speedzone. A little pricey, but it is a very fast acting product. I use it exclusively until the temps reach 80. One app. and all broadleaves in my area are gone. It's also great for broadcast apps on new lawns with a lot of broadleafs, the customers can't figure out how all the weeds disappear so fast.

    Does SpeedZone = SpeedZone "Southern"??? Tried looking it up on Lesco's website or rates and "pricing" and that's what came up, the "SpeedZone Southern" poduct. I'm assuming they are the same?

    SpeedZone is not the same product as SpeedZone Southern.

    Here is the SpeedZone page from PBI Gordon.

    And here is the SpeedZone Southern page from PBI Gordon.

    The labels are different (lower temp limit with SpeedZone Southern) and so are the amounts of active ingredient.

    I do spot and wide area spraying of speedzone. I won't consider anything else.
    I tested the 3 hoour limit by applying and then the weather suddenly dumped a 1/2 inch of rain about 3 hours later. No callback and total weed kill on that 1.5 acre property.
