    I'm looking at a used GNC Space Saver sprayer this evening. I haven't used a sprayer before so any advice on what to look for would be appreciated.

    Honda engine
    200 gallon tank
    300' 3/8 hose
    New GNC 530 pump

    Needs a new spray gun and the short hoses that connect the pump to the tank.

    I would want to see it run and pump.. Hoses are cheap compared to a pump and or motor.

    It's currently disassembled so I won't be able to see it in action. The pump is new and hasn't been used yet.

    First look at pump Oil color milky color bad pump
    Next check run machine for pressure if it holds pressure with out leaks. and check agitation in side tank just close the presure valve it will agitate.check hose reel if it has electric reel you can check it with a battery buster pack:waving:

    Thanks for the feedback. He is asking $999. I was thinking the parts were worth that.

    For that price I'd buy it sight unseen if it has a brand new pump. GNC makes good stuff.

    Why is it tore down? did he replace the pump and not finish hooking it up?
