I am about ready to pull the trigger on a Ride-On Spreader/Sprayer. Most of my accounts are under 1/2 acre. Ive narrowed my choices to a Turfco T3000, Z-Spray Jr or a Pathfinder by Groundlogic. The Z and the 3000 seemed priced about the same (around $8500) and the Pathfinder is $6500. I wasnt impressed with all the plastic on the Permagreens for the price. Does anyone have any experiece with these that you could offer some advice. I do like the reel option and the boom that comes with the Z but Im just not sure about plunking down the extra $2000. Being my first ride on I had started out looking for used units but havent had much luck. Any thoughts from you more experienced guys greatly appreciated.
