    We are looking to buy a Spreader Sprayer in the spring. We have it narrowed down to 2, the t 3100 by Turfco or the Exmark.

    Price is a non issue, it will be financed, looking for quality and dependability.... I would like to hear the good, bad and ugly of both.

    I bought a new t3100. I added the 3&1 tank. Runs every day and does it’s job.

    Thanks for the input, looks like we are going to get a free demo of the Turfco. No body seems to like the Exmark.

    Are you not considering the z spray or steel green machines? Best machines out there for reliability and efficiency.

    We did look at the Z Sprayer...Long story short, we really don't want to deal with the local Site One.....

    You know that Toro/Exmark picked them up and will now be your dealer and service for them right?

    One guy on here is happy with his dealer, but that's about it. Exmark/toro machines are good machines when working though. Which is about 99% of the time.
