No. Because I have it set up for normal operation.

It's simple.

Some hose. A nozzle body. Some hose clamps and zip ties.

Yes you can run both at the same time. I just finished 12.7 acres today and i really like the setup. I start with the 25gal tank on mostly flat areas then lighten it up a bit and hit the hills.

That is an easy mod but the tank is the problem. Why type of Z do you have?

we had two units built for us this year with relocated foot switches to the inside of the left hydro control lever using the same switch the 2013 z plug uses. Should work great but we wont be spraying til april or so. Time will tell.

I stripped down an old Stihl SG20 backpack sprayer to just the tank and frame. I mounted a 2gpm pump from Tractor supply on to the frame. I added some fittings and some hose along with electric connection to the battery via conduit and I now have a 4 gal spot sprayer with jet agitation that sprays 1/4gal per minute. It fits perfectly into the Z-spray tray. I can easily remove it for storage or when not needed.
