Naturally your tank will run out quicker--and you will spend a lot of time driving back to the truck, refilling the tank and mixing new chemicals.
Suit your speed to the situation. Herbicides and insecticides 4 mph. Some odd product that requires four times as much water per thousand--just go 1 mph.
I want to be able to spray fertilizer which is why I want to spray the higher volume.

My question was just basically if it would be a good idea to go ahead and get a bigger pump than the 2.1 gpm.

The mechanic at the golf course I work at that helped me put the sprayer on the mower told me I would need one if I wanted to spray higher volumes.

Just thought I would ask some people with more experience.
