    Hey Lawn Crew, I know this isn't exactly on topic here, but were you looking to maybe bid on that sprayer on e-bay? If so notice that the seller has a NEGATIVE 2 feedback! I didn't even know it was possible to have a feedback that was a negative number! Since you are both in New York I would go to him in person if you are really interested, you never know it may be a fraud too. Better to see in person.

    Lesco sells the 200 gallon fiberglass with 8.0 hp Kaw. for $4199.00 plus tax. With enough customers it will pay for itself in no time.

    before you buy anyone's used spray equipment,make sure you know and I mean KNOW what's been in it. Hoses, fittings and even in the inside of the tank itself can become inbedded with residue that can be released at any time. Imagine buying a sprayer that was used for roadside sterilant use, you mix up with a highly acidic lawn mix and go out and app a 4 acre high end residential property with it. The mix goes volatile and you burn down the entire lawn. Replacement costs, 24 cents per square foot. Now how does that bargain sprayer look? Tank cleaners/neutralizers can only do so much and even state so on their labels, so be wise, ask ask ask, verify verify verify.

    That is a good point however you can neutralize all products with a tank neutralizing product. This will even allow a lawn care truck w/ herbicides to spray trees and shrubs
