You can use it, but it is not a must. I do iron with PGR, so it has a surfactant to it.
It sounds like its okay to mix Feature 6-0-0 with PGR?
I can't keep track of all the approved combinations :lol:

Re: My NorthStar 21gal Tow Behind Sprayer TeeJet Mod- Writeup/pics

Is your pickup nozzle all the way down in the sprayer? The screen should be basically touching the bottom.

Also, when hooked up, is your sprayer tilted forward? That would cause the liquid to accumulate away from the pickup tube.

Re: Soil softeners

I've done the soil conditioner/soap and one application of Penterra.

I think they've helped... but it's always so hard to say.

I'm the kind of guy that takes really good care of my equipment. I don't mow if the grass is wet, blow the mower off after every mow, do a quick spray wax wipe down every month or so and at least once per year it gets a full wax job. I do all the maintenance per the manual and because of this I exp...

Re: Ride along as I Dethatch and Sweep

The Troybilt mower brings back such warm memories of mine... before it blew the engine somewhat prematurely. I loved that thing. Master plan was to use it just as a tow-body, and get a ZTR down the road. Anyways, thanks for sharing your journey. These videos are soothing. Bad thing about the sweeper...
