This may be a dumb question but are you licensed? Just curious. I knew a guy who went out and bought all the equipment and then realized he had to be licensed.

I was thinking of getting a former truegreen truck. It would make for a better mobile advertisement and I think it would demand more respect from customers than a pickup that was turned into a spray rig. Although now im considering a chevy or gmc 2500. or perhaps a f-250(long-bed of course). If i go that route i figure a 300 gallon split tank(200/100) will serve me well the first year or two.
What's your plan?

Actually in Tennessee the proper question would be have I been approved for a charter. You can have a license and still not be able to run your own business. I appreciate the TDOA and all they do so yes, I am legal.
