    Look at getting a walk behind unit unless you're doing more than 20K ft a day. Graco FieldLazer's run about $1.9K. buy your paint in bulk too. you'll save a ton if you have a good dealer.

    Also make sure when you buy the paint you get water-based or you will kill the grass with a non water-based paint.

    All u really need is a walkbehind paintmachine, wheel tapemeasure and a whole bunch of string. Measure out field, nail in each corner of line and follow line, decent amount of prepwork
