    We don't want to call Bob. We love our Z-sprays. Thanks for trying to set us straight though.

    Got my packet of materials yesterday. Have talked with the TURFCO people three times, very open and informative. Cell battery on mine went dead and they called me not once, but 3 times to finish our conversation.

    Didn't cost me a dime to call, just time, which was well spent.

    They answered all of my questions straightforward, no run around.

    You know, in life we do WHAT WE want to do.....plain and simple!

    Think it's human nature to complain, some more than others, and some don't complain about anything. Like on this site, people wanting something for nothing........wanting somone to deliver not just to the front door....but "bring it inside" ..... everything has a price.....nothing is free in life.

    I agree, don't knock it till you tried it, until then, I wish I had a ride on, but will continue dragging hoses for a while longer. I am thankful to have sprayers and the "sometime help" to drag "that hose".:rolleyes:

    Take care.

    I've read many posts about the lack of problems with the Z's. Just wondering...For the guys who own Z's. How long have each of you had your machines?

    Was this open area or was there a bunch of obstacles. How long does it take you to fill? How much time have you spent on it?

    Reason I ask:

    I thought that the Z was supposed to be so much faster and more effecient then a PG and every other ride on?

    I can do between 2.5 -2.7 acres/hour very easy! You only averaged 2.3 acres/hour.

    Just curious!

    I thought you were getting one of the Turco units also? Still using the PG?

    I have had mine since 05 and have over 400 hours on it. Honestly, the only thing I have done on it is a pump, and one service. I just put it in the shop to have a second service and replace a couple of parts that I have dinged and dented over time. I only used it on commercial until this season when the pg's really started to show their age. I have put over 100 hours on it already this season alone.
