    can you "make your own setup"? Im lookin at tanks and pumps sold separatly and its alot cheaper that way. you dont get the frame to mount the reel on but that doesnt seem like a problem. seems cost effective. anyone here piece their own setup. good or bad idea

    I have put together a few sprayers and you can save a little money, but you will need to have a frame made, or you can mount it on a flatbed. you will probablly still spend a over $2000 for the tank, pump and motor and hosereel.
