    What can you tell me about price/reliability of riding fertilizer applicators ? I am looking for one that has the capability of spreading granules as well as being able to apply liquids. With the liquid application, what amout of square footage is one tank capable of covering ? With the granular, how many #'s can they handle ? Thanks in advance ?:usflag:

    I have the PG Magnum. it covers about 50k per 12 gal. the granular coverage just depends what you are putting down and what rate you want to apply. the hopper holds 150 lbs. price is about 6K. what I like about the pg over the Z-Spray is that you don't need to pull a trailer with the pg and can mount the carrier on the back of a pickup truck, and is great for average sized lawns. the Z-Spray is a great piece of equipment too and if you have several large commercial properties it would be a good choice.
