Dude you will have no problem. Low volume will save you time and money. Just follow the label for mixing etc. exmark has tons of videos on YouTube to help you calibrate and run the machine. Exmark is the inventor of these machines. Check them out. Good luck and any questions send them out. Off to work.Thank you Marine for the help I'm excited but also a little bit hesitant this machine can get a lot of work done but I fear can do some damage in the wrong hands lol. Being kind of new to the whole low volume application thing has me a little hesitant but I guess I have to get over my fears and fire away
To be honest if he goes 1.1 oz per quart in the spring he won’t burn anything. But it is his choice. Gl either way.I'd stick with stock tips and run at 40psi when spraying for the first year. Less chance of burning a lawn for someone with little experience on a ride on. You can look into changing things up once your confident in your machine.
The toro has no top weight whatsoever with or with out fert in it. It is super well balanced and it’s center of gravity is genius.And remember--most spreader sprayers are a bit top heavy--especially when the hopper is full of fertilizer.
Be safe--be cautious. Put a full unopened bag of fert if the hopper and push from the side--be sure you know how much force will cause it to tip. If you have employees--be sure to insist that they operate with safety in mind. A fertilizer spill is bad. A roll-over is worse.
