Go to: http://www.missouriturfpaint.com/siteindx.html

It is a great site for stenciling and line painting equipment.

or this: http://www.pioneer-mfg.com/

or this: http://www.worldclasspaints.com/index.php
world class paints is definately the best company for sports turf painting.

I don't believe they show the prices for the equipment but do provide picures and info on them.

Look at getting a walk behind unit unless you're doing more than 20K ft a day. Graco FieldLazer's run about $1.9K. buy your paint in bulk too. you'll save a ton if you have a good dealer.

Also make sure when you buy the paint you get water-based or you will kill the grass with a non water-based paint.

All u really need is a walkbehind paintmachine, wheel tapemeasure and a whole bunch of string. Measure out field, nail in each corner of line and follow line, decent amount of prepwork
