    I was told that lesco makes a sprayer that fits in the back of your truck. I got onto lesco's site and i did not see one. I am driving a dodge 2500 ext cab long bed cummins diesel.

    Lesco makes a good sprayer, but you might find it a little pricey. One thing to consider if this is your first purchase is curb side motor and reel placement. Makes it a lot easier than rear mounted skid units.

    he means that are are many different layouts for spray skids and if you are unfamiliar with the different layouts, you may not be aware of how it affects you spraying multiple lawns per day from the back of a pickup. Unless you like the idea of climbing in and out of the truck each time, trying to back your truck into each property, etc., you may want to be looking for skids that you can access everything from outside of the truck(motor, reel, valves, pump) with the reel curbside(passenger side) so that as you pull up to a house, you can eye down a pull line and drag straight out and reel straight back in. That's what he means.

    I have one of the ones thats made for you truck bed with reel and motor on the passanger side. I love mine. one thing i will suggest that I did was to buy a piece of magnetic sign material to match your truck color-mine it white, so easy to do-cut it out to fit the area bellow your sprayeron the truck. It will keep the hose from scatching your paint off.
