    So I have my 25 gallon sprayer mounted to my ztr w/low vol nozzles.
    Im doing my first rounds after the landscapers dethatch and do the cleanup. It is realy hard seeing where you have been, so i bought some of the blue gel tracker stuff from lesco, i kind of guessed rathe rthan measure, holy blueness a little goes a long way, looks like a tank of blueberry juice.:laugh::laugh:

    Tracker dye helps for sure!

    Now you'll learn exactly where your spray is going. Your hands, face, pants, sidewalks, down spouts, shop floor, ect

    I've started doing the same with my modified ZTR. I went initially with the tracker dye option which will be useless once the grass greens up.

    The next step for me will be a "turf tacker" foamer system which I think is an option on the Z-sprays.

    Here's a link to their web sites:

    It uses dish soap to leave a drop of foam allowing you to see where you've been. - Ed
