Anyone use a Spreader-mate for spraying yards?

    Plop the spray tank in a granular spreader and you have weed sprayer on wheels. Has anyone used it? How much is it? How long did it take to set it up in the spreader and take it back out? Did the chemicals damage the spreader?

    I have one of those units mounted on a lawn treatment truck and use it for a hose in a hose injection system. It works very well. I would think the spreader model would do a good job also. Neal

    So if a guy is just starting up a fert/pesticide program, would this be adequate?
    I've got a 30 gal. tow-behind to fall back on.
    I don't have a large hose rig yet (or know if I should get one), or a perma-green (really don't know if I should get one).
    I'm really looking for a good starting point, what are your thoughts?

    It would be an inexpensive way to do nice work on smallish lawns and a good place to start. I believe you could always use this little sprayer even if you get a larger one. Neal
