Thankful For Your Family…. Business?
Landscaping businesses are often family endeavors. While this can combine the best of both worlds (personal and professional), it isn’t always smooth sailing. Click here to read more.
Since no one has posted I'll put my 2 cents worth in. I have not "switched" per se but do own both, 2 PG's and on full size Z-spray (40 gal). They both beat pulling a hose but are 2 different beast. The PG is very manuverable, smaller and lighter than the Z-spray, easier to get over curbs, under low branches, through tight spots and 3 grand less. The Z-spray however kicks the PG's butts in large wide open areas. This is for several reasons: 1.) the Z-spray will treat more than twice the area of a PG between refills and is faster both at applying and at getting back to the truck to refill. In addition, I love the 50ft spray hose that comes standard with the Z vs. the $2.00 spray bottle that comes with the PG. Which one is best for you depends on your scope of work. The Z-spray Junior is a closer comparison to the PG, for us we needed the larger Z-spray as we have a number of 30-50 acre properties. The PG does have its glitches, but support has always been outstanding in my experience.
Thank you Cemars, finally an opinion that didn't totally blast the PG. I'm on the verge of getting one and have been asking for objective opinions on other posts. I have a few 1-5 acre sites but most are in the 8-15,000 range with about 15-20 in the 4-8,000 range. Only treating about 1.5 mil sq ft now but still growing this side of business as I transition away from mowing. Seems like the PG might be more suited to my situation, what do you think? Only thing that nags me a little is all the posts describing switching from PG to z-spray, not the other way around. What have been your mechanical glitches? Have heard alot of maintenance complaints on different posts but no specifics.
James, wasn't getting on you, and I agree on posting your opinions. Just wasn't too encouraged on all I had been reading on the PG. In the end I think their warranty will give it the chance to shine or be returned. At this point, I can tell you I would not be buying it if not for that money back guarantee.
the thing i like about the PG unit is it is light if i get it stuck i can manhandel it out of the spot u can literally roll it over to move it
u will not move the z-spray that easy
i have a pg and am going to buy a z-spray soon
i feel with that i will still use both machines for dif property's
