How to convert hand agitated to powered agitation

Could anyone give me an idea of how to convert my hand agitated tank to powered agitation. I can't seem to find anything on the web about that. Can I just remove the handle and get a gear welded on, then attach a gas motor with some kind of gear reduction ? Or maybe an electric motor powered by a generator, that might run for 5 or 10 minutes before I start spraying. I could control the speed easier on an electric one .Or is there a "kit" some where that I could buy ? Bob

Im presently looking at a 300 gallon used tank with hand agitation. I am considering the possibility of mounting it to a flat bed trailer and attaching a 350cc four cycle honda atv motor (with manual foot shift) to the deck of the trailer. Those motors are geared super low and have a lot of grunt to them. Im not familiar with how much effort is required to turn one of the hand agitated tanks. Im just wondering how well honda motor will work.
