    Got a brochure in the mail today from a company called GNC Industries in Pocahontas, Arkansas. They had some pretty decent prices on their skid sprayers, so I was curious if anyone here has had any dealings with them. I'm looking for a large rig to put in a one ton as a dedicated lawn rig, and they have a nice looking 400 gallon space saver rig on sale now. How about it, any info?

    I ordered one last Friday. I ordered the tank, with the agitation and suction lines installed. That total was about 1250.00. If you order just the tank and drill your own holesin the stainless plates and install the agitation yourself its around 800. Though they are designed for an eight ft pickup bed, I am mounting mine on a flatbed. The only bummer was they said it would take two weeks to ship. I live in Tenn., so it must take a while to drill through the plastic!! If you email me in a couple of weeks i'll let you know how I like it. I am taking the honda and hypro off an old lesco sprayer and the hose reel. They are also predrilling for the honda motor and hannay hose reel I already have. I have to drill my own holes for the punp. later, turfdoc

    i saw there 200gal unit at the expo in KY last year, looked well built, the difference i noticed was they use there own pump (GNC) and aCOX reel instead of a hanny reel.
