We're in Central Florida and run with 2 Ford F150's with Lesco 100 gal. rigs on them with 300 ft. of hose. The original unit is over 5 years old and we have had no problems at all. We have 2 diamond plate aluminum boxes for chemical storage. One is extra deep right behind the cab, and the other runs from that box to the rear of the truck on the driver side. By the way it is a long bed.
Out of these rigs we apply 4 gals. per 1,000 sq. ft. So a 100 gallon tank covers approx. 25,000 sq. ft. Hope this info helps.

You can also select U.L.V.( ultra low volume) applications
By using this method a 100 Gallon tank at 1/2 Gallon rate would cover 4.4 acres. You'll need to wire this sytem to your trucks electrical ststem and not use gasoline eguipment and use flo-get pumps with operate at 40 lbs. pressure. Apply materials with a doulble boom a single wand
gun and use tee jets. smaller droplets better control, but more potential of drift on windier days. Try C&STurf Care
you'll find them in the trade magizines. They made my equipment.
