Dual Tank/Injection

I wrote part of this thread in the "Equipment for Sale" Forum but I thought I would bring it over here. I am really confused over the lack of dual hose/gun/injection system information on the web. It seems as if the industry is moving away from this and I'm trying to determine why. We just purchased a TGCL Rhino truck that is equipped to have the injection. I am having a hard time finding spray guns for the dual hoses. I have seen the Gregson Clark gun and I'm considering it. Seems like that is the only one! Why? Given the increase in Integrated Pest Management and the Green Movement, I would think that this is the way to go.

Pros?
Cons?

The Gregson Clark setup is nice.
BTW, I like your website & your concerns about being environmentally responsible.
Are you aware the courses available at Phipps? http://phipps.conservatory.org/proje...art/index.aspx

I'll be speaking there Feb. 21 on Running a Successful Lawn Care Business with Natural Products

Green,

I will give you that gun have posted in that other thread for free. It's made by teejet for trugreen. It fits directly on your setup. No one really uses the injection systems anymore. Why? Not really sure. Injection is the way to go for insecticides IMO.

Thanks for the offer. Just trying to figure out how to configure this truck. Why do you get rid of the injection when you purchase a TG truck?

My tanks are 500/100. I wanted to have two separate systems. That gun came off of a trugreen truck.

They don't work. Thats why. I mean they "Can work" sometimes but they are problematic at best and thats any number of different designs or attempts at making it work.

TG, Chemlawn, and Davey have all tried it till they were blue in the teeth.

It's expensive. Extremely high maintenance, and you're dealing with concentrated chemicals so working on the things totally suck.
