Default Razor Pro weed killer- as good as Roundup?

Remove this ad.....
become a Supporting Member today.
Has anyone used a product I found on E-Bay called Razor Pro weed killer? It appears to be similar to Roundup but cheaper, around $60 for a 2.5 gal container.

The link:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=4361785560&rd=1&sspage name=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&rd=1

The project summary:


41% Glyphosate. Mix with water. Do not use Galvanized or steel sprayers. Only Stainless Steel or plastic sprayers. This will kill your grass.

Weeds 6"and under = A 2.5 gallon will make 300 gallons
Weeds 6" and over = A 2.5 gallon will make 200 gallons
For hard to control weeds = A 2.5 gallon will make 125 gallons
For woody brush and trees = A 2.5 gallon will make 25 gallons

A broad spectrum glyphosate that offers superb control of a variety of broadleaf weeds, woody brush and plants. The 14% surfactant level eliminates the need for additional surfactant.

* 4 lb. Glyphosate per gallon
* Contains 14% surfactant, a "surfactant loaded" foliar herbicide
* Rainfast within 2 hours of application
* Provides effective control on most annual weeds, perennial weeds, woody brush and plants

Razor Pro provides broad spectrum post-emergent weed control for industrial sites, forestry, turf, vegetation management, habitat management, similar non-crop sites and ornamental areas.

RAZOR PRO FEATURES AND BENEFITS
• Surfactant-loaded liquid glyphosate formulation
• Rainfast within two hours of application
• Controls most annual and perennial weeds
• Very effective on woody brush and plants
• Proven performance
• Tank mix compatible with many other herbicides
• Extended application window
Always read the entire label before using.
Avoid contact with desirable vegetation.

Default ...I don't know about Razor specifically...

But, there are plenty of internet sources for 41% glyphosate. One of the advertisers on this site...www.cooperseed.com ... had it at about $45 the other day. 2.5gallon.

Since the patent expired on glyphosate for Monsanto's Round-Up there are plenty of folks making this chemical now. I've heard that the Chinese are shipping a lot of it into the US. Some with surfactant and some without. But, adding surfactant is no big deal. A little non-sudsing Tide will take care of it for you.

Thumbs Up Generic Roundup

When my supply of brand name Roundup ran out, I tried a generic 41%glycophosphate called "Pronto Big N' Tuff" which TSC carried. It had surfactant already added. I could see no difference from Roundup in actual field use results.
