highest quality atv sprayer?

Guys, I don't know if this is the best place to ask this question, but here it goes.

I need a high quality sprayer for my 4 wheeler. I just need to use it occasionally on my food plots and my 4-5 acre lawn. I need it to be both a spot sprayer and either boom or boomless. Tell me what your opinions are on boom or boomless. I just need something high quality, not plastic junk. Does Maruyama make something like this?? I getting tired of using a backpack sprayer to put down Momentum on my lawn lol...

I've got a 26 gallon northern tool sprayer with a boomless sprayer. Works great. I prefer boomless because you don't have to worry about obstacles like trees etc.

Not sure where your located but I use atv sprayers from wylies.

Mine are 25 gallon tanks with a 4.6? Gpm flojet with a 14 ft foldable breakaway boom. I've had one for 7 years and just ordered a second last week. I've replaced my pump 3 times in 7 years. That is mainly because of my choice of chemicals.

40 gallon sprayer from Becknell wholesale http://www.becknell.com . It comes with the 3.8 gpm pump instead of the smaller 2 gpm. This makes a HUGE difference in your ability to cover large areas quickly. I bought an 80 inch boomless sprayer, and a 50 foot hose for the spray gun. You can really cover some ground with the long hose.

scroll to page 00-16.

This sprayer can do some serious work. I paid $400ish with the boomless sprayer and in 3 years I've probably made $15,000 with it, not to mention the money I've saved on trimming fencelines and miles of city sidewalks by spraying with RoundUp.

Proedge makes a good boom sprayer. It's costly but works really well. I've had one for 3 years with no problems

Maruyama

I would recommend Maruyama MS75E-25 SS. Pumps are topnotch and you can't beat the 5 year Commercial Warranty on the engine and pump.

I do aquatic weed spraying and use a 12V sprayer to shoot 20 ft from the boat to the Bank. I am using a 2.1 GPM Fimco pump from tractor supply. Any 2.1 gpm 12V should work. My trick is in the GUN & NOZZLE. I use a PRESSURE WASHER GUN WITH A 15 DEGREE FAN. Of course the nozzles are smaller. If the Pump is brand new I can use a 4.0 tip as the pump gets older I go to a 3.5 and then 3.0 nozzle. I believe these nozzle sizes are GPM @ 1000 PSI. At 40 PSI I get one GPM. BTW I use quick snap connectors so I can change tips. A Zero tip will go about 30 Feet.
