How long does it take to apply liquid fert?

Hi everyone,
For all those who apply liquid fertilizer how long does it take you to apply product per 1000sqft and what kind of equipment do you use to accomplish that?

i spray weed killer and it all depends on how far to pull hose ect. just to spray 1,000 sqft would take less than 5 min. i use a lesco 300 gal sprayer.

1/4 acre lot, if you are just spraying? if you don't have to make a 2nd pass over it to spray the weeds or it you are doing a tank mix then not long at all. Drag the hose to the back of the property and work your way forward. depending on the layout of he property, an area that size could be 5 minutes or so to spray. And if it's all liquid there is no having to blow the drive/walk ways.

All in all from pull up to pull out could be about 10 minutes or so depending on the layout and whether there are dates/fences or other obsticles. On a .25 acre lot the paper work takes longer than the actual app
