Build one. A 200 gal tank from tractor supply. 5.5 Hp engine hypro roller pump with direct connect. Ric's red neck engineering and it will cost less then 1500.00 with hose and reel

Cheaper than that if you really want to be a Red Neck.

Yep the Hose and Hose Reel are the most expensive part. There is a Legal CPO in my town who uses a standard rubber Garden hose that he hand lays into the back of his truck. In the old days Spray trucks actually had boxes to lay the hose in. Winding the hose up in one of those boxes was a trick so it came out smooth when you pulled it.

I was in Univar yesterday and they can get you a GNC Space Saver 200 gallon Tank Only no hose or holes etc, for $ 1100.

I am Considering buying one and mounting my pump & Reel on it.

why do something so expensive ric? a 200 gal tank at tractor supply is 279.00... drill some holes in the bed and put stainless steel straps on it for 150.00 450 is a whole lot better than 1100.00.

Its about the space saver design. Good weight distribution and leaves the most space in the bed.

Two Words. "SPACE SAVER"

Look at Gary's set up. Today 8 ft truck beds are not all that common. My extra cab truck only has a 6.5 ft bed. I had to take the tail gate off so the exhaust wouldn't burn it.

Where do you find the stainless steel straps?

Florida sprayers can order them but the tank mfg sells them on line to match the tanks
I got mine from a local fab shop for 150.00 took them 3 days after they took the measurements.
