My new skid sprayer!

Yeah, its still small.. but its better than what i had. I couldn't reach half the backyards with my old setup without backing into the driveways.. had to manually reel up hose twice on many.. lol. and the only way it mounted in the truck left me with no space in the bed expect for between the cab and skid, which was a huge pain in the ass. Now I have more room in the back of my truck near the tailgate, and 400ft of hose with an electric reel. 7gpm delavan electric pump. only 100 gallon tank though.. but perfect for this 1/2 ton truck.

I got this at graham spray equipment, they are a sponsor here. really nice guys to deal with.

Looks nice man. I'm ready to get a 200 gallon sprayer since I use liquid fert.

Sweet. Way to go, Inzane! It looks to me like you have room for a spreader and 30 bags of fert. That will come in handy. The Earthway stainless spreader 2150, takes up less room. I suspect you could slide a 200 gal tank on the back--for those days when you have an extra big lawn.

I suggest a rain hood or flat metal plate over the motor to protect it from the solution that drips off the hose when you wind it in when the grass is wet.

Can you get good gallons per minute flow? Good agitation, (when needed?)

2 gallons per minute, 400 ft. of 3/8 inch hose. i always like spraying at that rate. so about 50k sq. ft. out of one fill, but i got it all figured out. it should work out for me just fine.
,
just not sure if i should try to run potash or urea through this thing. there is a bypass valve at the reel to switch to agitation which is 7 gpm, then you switch to spray, but no agitation while i spray.

100 gal of mix and 30 bags of fert? That'll squat that 1/2 ton down to the axle.

lol.. i'd never do that. when i'm doing granular, the tank is just about empty or just enough water to fill up the backup sprayers every now and again. if i need that much fert it will be going on a trailer. if i had a need for that much materials each day i'll have a 2500hd by then.
