Compare this to a similar Lesco unit that runs close to $4000! Check this out and let me know what you think....

Straight insecticide it might be ok. But I had one from Northern just like the one shown. Rusted apart and the hose reel gears messed up. I would not buy another.

Lesco 200 poly 5.5 Kaw Hypro D-403 $2999.00 shipping included. Not that close to $4000.00

If you're looking for a deal, head down to the local Lesco dealer and look on their board there.

I know at the one here in MN, there's always a sprayer or 3 on there for sale.

I bought one from Northern back in 1998. Although it was a Honda with a Hypro D30. I am still using the motor,pump,and hose reel.I remounted it with a bigger tank on a new frame 2 years ago. The frames are pretty cheap that they are using but the rest of the components are good.

Shipping on that unit to Indpls. is gonna be bout $500.00 and thats gonna put ya mighty close to a new lesco space saver. If price is the only concern, I gotta agree with checking at Lesco. As the ride ons get more popular, there seems to be more tanks for sale.

I would recommend if you buy one of these sprayers that it comes with a agitator. Also i like the hose reel mounted on the side not pointed off the back much easier to pull up to a lawn and go

I have a gently used Lesco fiberglass 300 gallon, with mechanical agitation, I might let go for $2500.
