    5 of 5 Stars  Excellent stuff
    By Dan on August 24, 2011
    Verified Purchase

    I have for years been wrestling with various different varieties of late summer crab grasses in the lawns that I manage, even after high quality pre-emergent and several OTC post-emergent herbicide treatments. This summer with everything looking truly horrid with nasty crab grasses growing everywhere, I used the Southern Ag surfactant along with Drive XLR8 to absolutely knock the crap out of my crab grass problems. I applied the Drive XLR8 and the surfactant combination to the lawns prior to any heat stressing/stunting and well between mowings as specified. My results were outstanding and visible with yellowing in 36-48 hours and then obviously terminal yellow-tan in 96 hours. The Drive XLR8 and surfactant combination is a bit pricey, but the coverage is excellent and the combination actually works as advertised.

    This crabgrass killer really works!! First I was skeptical, I had a serious crabgrass problem, with big mature crabgrass. I used scott's and Bayer's weed killer with crabgrass controll, they didn't work. I used this one in early september, all the crabgrass were dead in a few days, I just reseeded my lawn...

    2 of 5 Stars  Not Impressed
    By Matt on July 11, 2011
    Verified Purchase

    For the cost and effectiveness, I would not buy this product again. Using the recommended doage, the herbicide only stunted the growth of some weeds, and even killed some of the grass. Most of the weeds remained unchanged. I am going to try going beyond the dosage to see if this works, but as of right now, it is not worth the hefty price tag.

    By John on September 25, 2011
    Verified Purchase

    Easy to remember, a neighbor told me about it. The mixing instructions were easy enough to follow and one has to know what application he is making. The sprayer I am using mixed it automatically once I knew the tbsps/gallon to set on it. The crab grass simply started to disappear after a few days.

    By Gjroman on October 8, 2014

    The fall application appears to have killed the crabgrass which was my intent. Spring will indicate if it was a job well done. Why can't the spec simply say how many oz. of product to use per gallon of H2O for various applications?

    By Mack on July 28, 2014

    Worked great on my crabgrass. The crabgrass showed signs of dying in three days. I did not get good coverage of the yard when I applied the XLR8 so I needed to re apply it. I think it's great for crabgrass. Did not damage the lawn.

May 8, 2011 Sue asked:

QHow much do I need to mix with a 2 gal tank? The directions say to mix 1.45 oz of Drive to treat 1000 feet.
Does this mean I need 2.9 oz for a 2 gallon tank. I've gotten conflicting information on how much 2 gallons will treat. Thanks.

A

The first thing you need to know when using an herbicide such as Drive XLR8 Herbicide is that the exact amount of water you dilute it with is not important. It is only important to make sure you are using the correct amount of product per 1,000 sq ft of lawn. Use too much and you risk damaging your lawn, use too little and you will not get adequate results. You will need to use 1.45 oz per 1,000 sq ft . To decide how much water you want to use, you should mark a 1,000 sq ft area, fill your sprayer with water ONLY, and start walking and spraying just as if you were doing the actual application of herbicide. When you are done walking and spraying the 1,000 sq ft area note how much water it took you to spray that area, and that is the amount you will want to mix 1.45 oz of product with for each 1,000 sq ft area that needs to be treated. You will need to make sure treated areas are irrigated with at least 1/2 inch of water (either by rainfall or by sprinkler) following the application.

QWill Drive XLR8 kill Torpedo grass without killing my Empire Zoysia?
Torpedo grass has spread from my next door neighbor's yard and is taking over my entire front yard. I am looking for a product that will kill the Torpedo grass and also help me maintain a Torpedo free lawn.

ADrive XLR8 is labeled to kill torpedo grass in zoysia and you can use it for that.  However, it will typically require at least 2 applications at 21 day intervals.  Please read the product label for complete instructions on treating torpedo grass.

April 21, 2011 M asked:

QShould I start now for crabgrass in Ohio?

AWe do not know the exact time of year you will start applying Drive XLR8 in Ohio. Weeds grow at different times in different regions and there is no way for us to know if the weeds have started growing in your area yet. According the Drive XLR8 product label you should start applying the product when the weeds are actively growing if you are using it as a broadcast spray. If you are using Drive XLR8 as a spot spray you should use tables 1, 2 and 3 on the product label and apply the product according to the turf species, rate and growth stages indicated in the tables. If you are not sure when the weeds start to actively grow in your region you can contact the master gardener at your local cooperative extension office for more information.

September 19, 2014 Jeff from Hyattsville, Md. asked:

QDoes Drive XLR8 Herbicide Crabgrass Killer contain quinclorac?
I was told to eliminate "creeping charley" To get product that contain this chemical.

A Drive XLR8 Herbicide Crabgrass Killer contains Quinclorac 15.93%. Drive is not labeled to treat creeping charlie. Tenacity is labeled to control Ground Ivy "Creeping Charlie" as post emergent control. We highly recommend using a temporary turf colorant like Turf Mark Blue so that you can see where you spray with the Tenacity to avoid overlapping. Tenacity is a great product, but also a very strong product so too much overlapping or mixing the product too strong can cause temporary damage and whitening to your turf around the ground ivy. The color will come back in the lawn after 3-4 weeks but to avoid this potential problem it is best to use a colorant to make sure no overlap occurs. To get optimum results for post emergent control it is recommended you use a Non Ionic Surfactant in your mixture as well. Please make sure that you check the label to verify that it is safe for your type of turfgrass as you did not indicate the kind of lawn you will be applying the product to. Please let us know if you have any questions.

Are you using the highest application ratio you can for your turf? For the best crabgrass control, you want to apply a pre emergent in the spring.

June 17, 2014 Danny from Amarillo, Texas asked:

QI have crabgrass. I am in the Texas panhandle and the temperature is in the 90's can I still apply Drive?

A

When applying Drive XLR8 Herbicide Crabgrass Killer you want to make sure the temp is not below 55 degrees and not above 80 degress.  You can try applying early in the morning or later in the evening when the temps could be below that for better results.  Weeds that are heat stressed during the day with not absorb the product well so you would not get good results.

June 12, 2014 Steve from Swedesboro Nj 08085 asked:

QDoes Drive XLR8 kill by root or leaf ingestion?

A Drive XLR8 Herbicide Crabgrass Killer is taken up through the leaf of the plant and translocated to the root. This is why Drive XLR8 Herbicide Crabgrass Killer is such a great crabgrass killer and we recommend using a Surfactant to help the product to stick and penetrate through to the Zylem of the weed.

The crabgrass is really thickening up and I'm worried about it choking out the new Riviera grass.
