    1st year using 300 gal sprayer(previously used a boom on my Walker) and I have to keep walking back to untangle hose. Any tricks of the trade out there or is this something you just have to continually fight with?

    You need a swivel connection on the gun end.

    Why did you quit using the walker sprayer?

    I replaced the open boom with a Prolawn shielded sprayer for the estates and use the hose for smaller lots.

    I had that proplem years ago.

    Tried a few swivels, after awhile they started to leak.

    Now, I just know which side of the house to pull up to and don't "twist" around when applying. If I do, I just spin around on the next pass.

    Another thing... If I know the hose is all twisted up. I'll set my gun on the sidewalk, so it will have room to flip around before it gets to my reel.

    I just picked up a walker sprayer in March and wow, is it ever saving me time. I took off the 20' hose that came with it and replaced it with 50' of 300 psi hose which is far more handy than the 20'.

    I think that a swivel connection would be the best bet too.

    Is there a site that I can check out some pics of this pro lawn sprayer?

    yeah... I don't think I even know what this "pro lawn" sprayer is!

    I've only used truck mounted systems... I'm assuming this is a mobile unit (like a sprayer on a 4wheeler)

    I'd like to see a pic too!
