    Looks pretty bad a$$ to me. Sure it is pretty pricey though.

    I guess that explains why they wanted nothing to do with Eric's plow setup.

    Couple things that I think the Z-Spray setup had over this:
    1) liquid or granular OR both.
    2) Year round use.

    I am happy as can be with the Z-Spray setup, it works great and it has the 2 above mentioned features that the Snowrator doesn't.

    Actually, if you watch the video again, you can see a spray wand and hose on the right side of the machine and a yellow tank in front of the operator's foot area, so I'm guessing it is set up to apply liquid ice melters, but yes I agree, for the price point at which they will be asking, probably a bit limited in use for the money. Unless you have shopping malls or muni sidewalks or something like that in which case, I think the speed would justify the cost.

    Actually, if you reread #1 I said liquid, or granular or both.

    Liquids do not work in every situation. I do not like being limited to only liquids.

    1) Yep, I know liquids don't work everywhere/all the time-I use them. However, I mistook what you said about the z-spray doing all as though you didn't see that the snowrator didn't do liquids. Just was pointing out that it DID do liquids in case you missed it.

    They have a granular hopper option. It comes with a wand and tips out front for spraying while you drive. Cost is around $8300.

    You all asked, so we have delivered!! We have now made the hopper to be attached at all times but can be easily removed in 60 seconds.

    So you can only do granular OR liquid, not both?

    Why not all stainless the ZSprays?

    Cost?

    What is a unit like this worth? do you have video's of it spreading salt?

    Thank you

    You can do both now, and it is all stainless steel just powder coated orange. The plow is mild steel and we are looking at doing it stainless. We want to keep it as cost efficient as possible.

    The price is $8,295 for the machine and $1,195 for the hopper attachment.

    But you can't do both at the same time like the ZSpray with the Zplow, correct?

    Yes you can do both at the same time. The hopper and spray are two separate systems. So yes you will be able to spray liquid de-ice and spread salt if you like.

    Just picked up our first Snowrator. Awesome piece. Just FYI it is all stainless. They actually painted the stainless. We opted for the hopper to spread salt and you can spread with the plow attached. we will also being picking up their mulch attachment for the spring. Great company to work with. We have several Z's.
