    I just got my Fertilizer Lic. in Texas and was trying to find pictures of how some of you have your fertilizer trucks setup. Any pictures would be appreciated or send me to where they are in this forum.

    Thanks, Donnie

    I just use a skid mounted sprayer that I take in and out of the truck.

    Might go bigger if I have enough squirt and fert.

    Question: are you a mixer intending to mix liquid fertilizer solution with herbicide? Or...are you a two step company...applying granular fertilizer first and then spraying weeds. (Better results).

    How big is your truck? 3/4 ton? Can you handle the weight? Slide the sprayer out from time to time?

    You were in the same prep class I was. Was the test what you thought and what we were told about.

    The question is not what kind of Fertilizer truck but WHAT KIND OF CUSTOMER YOU HAVE. Let your Market pick your equipment, Not your erquipment picking your market.

    What you need should be dictated by the needs of your customers and site conditions. Wish I was in flat land with minimal landscaping, 1 acre lawns with no obstacles and sandy loam with no pH issues.
