Bad River Outdoors Tagged Out Rangefinder

Anyone tried them, particularly off the ground? An ingenious concept, and very affordable, but seems like it wouldn't work from the height of a treestand. Thanks

Did you lime and fertilize or just broadcast the seed out? It says it has a "pH booster," but I don't know how reliable that is.

As long as you don't need it to do a lot of heavy pulling or jobs that require a lot of torque. I believe it lacks a low-range and the 1st gear in the ESP system is still pretty tall.
