Has anyone used an electric tank 200 gallon. I can get one for free but just not sure about it. I have never even heard of this all that i have used are gas.

i had one many years ago,
it worked
i was only spraying herbicides, and it was all the
setup could do to acheve 1.5gpm
it had like a 4gpm flowjet pump
worked best on a fully charged battery, flow would drop off
though as the battery discharged
of course if you had it in the back of a truck
you could hardwire it to the truck

you cant beat free, but be prepared to potentially invest a little money into it

It should have some kind of agitation/circulation just from the return line.

Depending on whay you are using...good agitation may not even be needed.

All I use is electric pumps!

Love them. No fuel needed, start easy...and very quite!
