Default liquid fertilizer vs granular spreaders

Anyone have a liquid fertilizer spreader that you can pull behind a mower or ATV? I was looking at them today at TSC and the guy there was saying that liquid is much cheaper to use in the long run.

I have the 125 gal from TSC, it works good but the liquid is not cheaper than the granular.

Granular is usually more of a slow release product
Everything has its purpose
Thats why everytime a commercial lawn care company treats a lawn they apply differently

You will get much faster results with a liquid application vs granular. Granular is cheaper however. I was a commercial fert/pest applicator. I know a lot about this stuffs
