    I purchased the synergy about 2 months ago. I have been spraying pre-m in a low volume as well as weed control. I can spread at the same time. basically its a perma green thats not self-propelled. I am able to get 14,000 sq. ft. with it. Its great for small and medium sized lawns. Its fast and effective. Its easy to use and so far proving to be durable. They run $350.00. A great buy!

    Im not selling it! I will come back with that report. Make sure you have these people mulch there grass if you spray in a low volume. If they bag after an app they take some of the product off.

    Ok, I agree, you can't be getting good control with pre-em with low volume like that... and 2, I'm getting crap control with my magnum, reguardless of using the 30 oz. or 40 oz. per 1,000 rates. I can't believe that 16 oz. per 1,000 would be good at all...

    same amount of product per k. Its similar to a granular. When you spread the granulars are like (aprox) 2 to 3 inches apart. When the water hits it the ai comes off the granular. With the low volume its a fine mist everywhere. You can go heavy on the pre-m in troublesome areas without going heavy on the fert. Thats why I like it. I am still putting down the same amount, just I am using less water as my carrier. I will keep you posted on my results. I use herbice this way as well. I have had great results. For example- 2 gallons in a synergy covers 14k. I would mix 14 ounces of weed control. I blanket my lawns with this with great results. Its a super fine mist but the droplets are everywhere. This will save you alot of money. again, I will keep you posted.
