Do you know it has a high gear too (5 MPH)??? You can push your spreader at 5 MPH all day and spray at the same time????

Wissel, I would take a second look at the Permagreen Magnum. I bought one this spring. I have 340 hours. For small to large residentials, it is very fast. I always go in high gear. I can spray/spread an acre in 15-20 minutes. Although , I did redesigned the spray system. I cover 9-10 feet in a pass. The trim nozzles cover a little more than the width of the machine. I can go all day and never hand spray. Booms are a pain in tighter areas.

Have you encountered any particular herbicides that cannot be sprayed with the PG? This would be due to the required gallons of water/M.

I know that some products are not intended for low volume applications.

The PG is much more of a time saver than walking whether your spraying or not. I have used mine from 5,000 sqft to 30 acres.

I would look at the Z SPray before buying the LESCO machine.

I will be test drving all of them at GIE next and let you guys know the results.

Trimec products can't be used (at least 992 anyway)
I believe Speedzone cannot either.

I saw in another post somewhere that Momentum FX and Eliminate can be used
