One tank will have fertilizer and weed control mix, and the smaller tank will just have weed control. We will be doing only lawn applications.

That looks like the Udor pump and gear reduction. You are going to love that Udor pump. I bought my newest unit from Westheffer just a little over a year ago and it had the Udor pump. If it's the R-70 you'll get excellent agitation. You won't be disappointed in the purchase,I promise you that.

You got the specs on my tank down pat! That is exactly what it is. We are going to wait to put it on the truck until the weather warms up a bit so that it does not freeze.

Striper Pro, I like the set up with the split tanks! Nice! How much does a set up like this cost?

Thanks

Archies-
This setup was just above $4000.00, but we also picked up a few extra items and spare parts in the process.

Why do you say that? Is that the Lesco 200 gallon Spacesaver?

sprayer gas tank

About Westheffer--is the gas tank easy to fill? I have seen some space saver and skid sprayers where it is almost impossible to fill the gas tank--because the fuel filler cap is underneath the reel. You need a gas can with a long skinny hose. On mine I installed an extra gas tank in a convenient spot. Has anybody else found an easy way to fill the inaccessable gas filler opening?

Also...is it easy to drain and change the oil on the motor?

Also..will it be difficult to change the diaphragms on the pump?

Is there an intake filter in the tank to prevent urea from plugging the filter screen and pump?

What is the agitation system like?

The gas tank on this model is easily accessible. It is below of the hose reel, but sits in an open area with plenty of room to fill tank. Oil changes are a piece of cake. We use one of the suction deals to suck out old oil, so getting to the drain plug is not a problem. Have not done anything with the diaphragms on the pump - so cannot answer that questions right now. There is no filter screen, but we do not have plans of putting urea in there anyways. Agitation system runs the Udor-70 pump. I have heard excellent things about this pump.

Nice unit StriperPro. Looks just like our hose reel/pump frames. Our original Westheffer pump frame was made out of steel. We since went to aluminum, cuz it's much less corrosive and it weighs much less. Out 3/4 ton trucks are maxed out regarding weight capacity when we're hauling 300 gallons and bags of fert. We even remove the spare tire underneath to lessen the weight & wear & tear on our trucks.

Nuther difference is our tanks are fiberglass Tuflex tanks instead of plastic. Plastic tanks are fine, but they do not last as long. They also tend to fade/discolor. So sometime down the road, you may choose to switch to fiberglass?? Anyways....nice unit!

Oh yeh -- we also installed quick disconnect fittings on our tanks so we can fill them about 75 gallons per minute. Just a thought.
