Looking to purchase a 300 to 400 gallons spray tank. Besides a lesco spray tank which do you guys prefer? Nothing against lesco because i have one just price shopping. Thanks

All brands I have seen are pretty similar in price.

Do you mean a just a tank (Snyder tank, or Raven) inexpensive, --or do you mean a whole sprayer with pump, motor and reel? If so scroll down 2 inches and look over Gregson Clark a loyal sponsor.

Tuflex. They last 20 or 30 years. Got one that's 20 years old and still looks like new.

Had Ryan's Ag build me one. Don't know wher in Ky you are but they are located in Lexington. They mounted it on a skid so i can get pallet forks under it. They did a great job.

Most don't build 400 gallon--you would have a very heavy load--you need a one-ton truck or bigger. If you plan to spray liquid fertilizer, then rust is a problem. If you use wettable powders--then a good agitation system is essential, (bypass with sparge nozzles or paddle). Good filter system, and electric reel are important. There should be a cover over the engine so that rain and chemicals do not drip on it, (but gas tank should be easy to fill). Oil should be easy to check and change. Pump should be positioned so that diaphragms can be easily removed and changed within 15 minutes. Tank should have drain. Decide on half-inch or 3/8 hose depending on your volume per minute needs. You may want hose roller guides on you reel. You may want an air-gap fill system for safety--or your state may require it by law. Remember that sometimes the pump output gallons and pressure are optimistic--allow for reduced performance after a year of wear.
