    Fraid charles is right. All machines have a different setup.
    Mark yourself off 1000 sq ft. Time how long it takes you to spray with water. Do it 3 times and average. Then get your catch buckets, and turn your nozzles on for the time you came up with in the spray test. Measure your water output, you have your amt water/K. Do it 3 times as well and average. Done.

    Don't forget about your rate of speed either!!! It makes a difference whether you are walking or riding.......too fast=less product.........too slow=too much product.

    You need to do the test runs to find out just what your machine is putting out per k. I had 2 magnums a few years ago and they needed 5-6 oz per gal.

    The 12 gals should cover about 50K according to factory specs. So you would 55-75 oz/12 would be a starting point.
