Re: Robomower Owners - Talk to Me!

I’m not going to be much help as I just have one zone. As far as I know you have to physically move the mower to other zones you created. If you have a large complex yard I feel it may be best to find an installer set it up. You can definitely do it yourself but the time you spend ensuring everythin...

Re: Is it too late to apply SOP to winterize lawn?

We are in the 50s for the lows and high 70s during day, I say put a little out now. I’m still cutting and will probably have to until we get a decent front.

Re: Continue pH Adjustment During Winter Dormancy?

You can continue the citric acid applications without issue.

Soil temp should be over 70 degrees for sulfur to start being oxidized by bacteria.

Re: Ware's Christmas Lights

So has anyone installed a permanent programable LED system here? Im considering attempting the DIY route and mounting channels under my soffits so I don't have to deal with putting lights up every year. I know there are a few companies that offer solutions but they are about $20 a foot DIY or $25 in...

Re: Walk behind tank sprayer

The chapin 12g is not that hard to push as long as your not dealing with crazy slopes. It has a lower center of gravity then adding a sprayer to the lesco 80lb spreader.

Re: Cal Trimmer replacement belt & when to stop using Tnex PGR?

I’m basically the same area and just did my last pgr application. I’m mowing basically once a week so even if it rebounds with temps cooling off and the change in sun angle it shouldn’t be unmanageable.

Re: Lebanon Turf products feedback

They make good stuff but as mentioned above with 2” grass height you are not going to benefit much from the smaller prill size. Even the larger sgn stuff would work and generally is cheaper and easier to source.

I’m doing split apps and have seen no issues. I’m sure there’s some root pruning going on but it hasn’t slowed my grass down.

I’ve used these to load a classen aerator myself, just go slow and steady. If I had transport wheels for my 220e I’d drive it up. I don’t think the drum would get enough traction.

Re: Reel or rotary

I think you will have a hard time maintaining several reels with debris on that much yard. @Ware had a rough mower for a while and can give you the details on it.

Re: John Deere Dealer reel mower refurb

My JD golf dealer wanted $350 for a relief grind. I basically only use the dealer for parts I can’t find cheaper elsewhere. Make friends with your local golf course crew, they work on these mowers daily and are the best resource.

For 1200 you could re power and still have enough to replace the reel and any other moving part

Re: Thief with WiFi Jammer killed my cameras - Switching to Wired cams

WiFi Jammer - that's quite the stretch or not ? Any chance he might have disconnected your internet@the Demarc on however it enters the house ? That might be the most logical IMO The tech is out there and it’s cheap and portable . But as you said just a service disconnect will render wireless camer...

Re: Electric Reel Mower?

For your size yard I’d stick with gas. I went down this same path looking for a electric greens mower for my 10k yard and came to the conclusion that the tech just isn’t there yet or I don’t want to spend what it would cost. I almost ordered the Electra and am so glad they were back ordered and I ha...

Re: Reel mower w no transport wheels

The drum will survive just fine. I roll mine probably 150 ft on sidewalk every time I mow. I still have my axels on and should probably look for a set of wheels so I can load the mower into the truck myself. I’d own any color greens mower as long as parts where readily available and it was straightf...

I think I posted a comment on one of your vids to see if you were using growth regulators. If you aren’t it may be something to try out.

I spray tnex, a soluble 1-1-1, and feature without any issues. I have mixed in other products before and as long as you jar test it in the same mixing order you shouldn’t gum up your sprayer.

I have a unify dream machine(not pro). What i don't get with the dream machine pro is why the ports are not POE. it is a nice product but having it come with POE would be better There’s a new udmp se in early access that has Poe but if they haven’t updated the backplane then I don’t really see the ...
