If you want to do it on the cheap, 2 gas powered backpacks and a push spreader. Thats what I use 90% of the time.
What kind of tires on the Gator? I have normal highway tires on my truck, not the gnarly off road tires. On firm ground, there is no marking or ruts. On a big estate not accessible with my truck, I would use an estate sprayer. Gas driven pump capable of high pressure and volume. Pressure and volume are needed for tank agitation. 40 or so PSI for the boom, the rest for the agitation jets.
