    I am seriously considering buying one of these spreaders.
    I am currently using Lescos push spreader, but this is taking way to much time and is killing our guys in the middle of the summer.
    Thanks for any help.

    Once you try one you will know. If you have work for it , then try one out. Also, it will be a time saver for you and your guys. I have three of them and they are great!

    I dont know that spreader but Lesco is the best spreader available in Canada and what I bought after testing all others.

    Yeah but you can't spray with the Lesco spreader.

    The Lesco spreader does not look as well belt to me as the perma green spreader.
    The perma green spreader looks like a lot of stainless steel was used to construct the unit.
    I dont mind buying one for what they cost, I just want to make sure it would be a good investment.
    Thanks for the replys.

    No PG for me. I enjoy the exercise I get pushing a spreader.

    I bought my first perma green unit last year. The new supreme unit. I can do granular or liquid at a rate of 3000 square feet per minute. At times last year i was making 100 dallars an hour. If you have enough properties close together this is possible. Will never go back to a push spreader. Granulars work better for fertilizers slower releise longer lasting but liquids work alot better for weed control. You have the best of both worlds! Go for it!!:)

    What's the cost on the Perma Green? I thought around $5000 or so. What have some of you paid?
