what type of sprayer rig do you use ??

this is just a small consensus of the type of equipment you use for spraying..

such as seal-rite, sealmaster, asphalt sealing direct, marathon etc,

and how satisfied you are with your equipment...thanks for your reply.

am really torn between equipt (expensive) and seal-rite..

we are starting a new business this spring..and was looking for a little info
besides what dealers will tell you...

thanks Brian

Brian,
Feel free to call me if you want to discuss the different brands. I would stay away from asphalt sealing direct as I don't think they have agitation.

I agree, you can find alot of used equipment out there, no need to buy new.

I use a 300 gallon hydraulically driven agitated tank with a 1.5 inch diaphragm pump. Used a asphalt kingdom 300 gallon with a trash pump my first year in business.....$2200.00(junk)... no comparsion in my opinion. Product should be properly mixed and you cannot do this recirculating with a trash pump. Take it from personal experince. If you desire to provide a professional service, you got to use the right equipment for the job. I know all about being on a budget starting out in business. Look around for something used. You are a heck of alot better off.

Image has alot to do with sealcoating , a 275 gallon tote and trash pump in the back of a pick up or on a trailer looks cheasy as hell. A professonally made rig , looks professional , it in itself will get you business . My 550 rig was built in 1996 and it is still going strong . I have done repairs and modifications over the years but it has served me extreemely well. Its paid for itself many times over

Would you be able to put some pics of your unit that you built/ ones you hve built in the past. I might be interested in giving you a winter project.
