A 200 gal sprayer is a good bet. In 3 years you can use it to fill your ride-on. With luck there will be enough room to also carry your spreader on the truck. You need a stainless steel spreader. 50 pound capacity is good--no reason to load up with more than 50 pounds at a time. Get the rain cover and edge delflector. Be sure to bolt a short chain and a snap hook to your truck so you can retain it and haul the spreader between stops, without it tipping over. Keep a padlock handy so you can lock it if you have to park somewhere.

If you need to use the truck for dry fert without spraying, try to build a set-up to slide the skid sprayer out onto a picnic table when you don't need it.

You need about 3 one gal hand sprayers--if you can fit that many on the truck or behind the seat. One for herbicide, one for late season crabrass, and one for nutsedge.
