Drop in sprayer

Does anyone know the name of the company that makes a 12 volt sprayer that drops into the hopper of a spreader and has two nozzles? I've seen it but can't remember who makes it.

Check out the tanks by Perma Green. Smaller volume, but you can still use the spreader for granular apps.

I have read advertisements about drop in sprayers in many trade publications.While the unit looks functional and promising for small applications, I would like to know if it works. I have considered purchasing one in the past, but have always held off.

Do any of the applicators on this forum own a drop in or has anyone used one. I would love to hear from someone with knowledge of how this unit works on an actual job.

I have a drop in sprayer made by clark, For two years now, Works great- 12 volt. I use it in a Lesco self propeled spreader. I purchased a extra battery with it. It has been prolbem free, Just do regular cleaning of the tank, and screens in the nozzles.

I bought one a few years ago, used it for two days and went back to my back back sprayer until I bought a truck mounted spray unit the following week. In my experience it took me more time to fool around with putting it in and out of my spreader, cleaning out the spreader each time I used it and also it was very top heavy which made it very difficult to use on hilly lawns and lawns with alot of tree roots or bumpy terraine. I think it was a great machine and worked just fine, it just was not convienent for me.
