    Hey guys im just getting into business and I wish to purchase a spray rig for residental weed control. Can someone please help me out with what type to buy. Can I spend less than 2500.00 and get what I need.

    Im also looking at buying a Wylie spray rig its used. This man wants 2250.00 for it. It has the following.

    5.5 Honda engine
    cox electric real
    300 ft of red clear hose.
    200 gallon square tank
    hypro pump on it
    tee jet gun.
    skid

    He says its only 3 years old but it was blue and he painted it green and the paint is peeling off . All of the serial numbers are intact. How can I tell how old this unit is?
    Has rust spots looks used more than he says it was..

    Can someone give me an idea value of what this is worth. Or where i can buy one for a reasonable price if possible.

    Thanks......

    how big of a sprayer are you looking for? Do you want to mount it to a mower, an atv?

    I bought the one from tractor supply last year about $300 some odd dollars.
    It has a boom and also hand sprayer. ops on lawn mower battery.

    This works fantastic for me.....

    Look at the one from JRCO, it gas powered and looks like it would work really well, plus you dont have to worry about pulling to much power from your mower. I looked at getting one of these to pull behind my z-spray, but never got it. No particular reason why, just never did.
