    I am thinking of purchasing an old Trugreen Isuzu NPR Spray truck. I have found a few out there, the only problem is one has all the spray components, but is missing the pump. I tried to search to see what pump I would need, but no luck, any ideas? The other truck has the pump, but has a big hole drilled out of the bottom of the tank, I am guessing this can be repaired? If someone has any knowledge of these trucks, please share.

    Thanks

    Put a valve in that hole--close the valve.

    Unless it's a smoking deal those trucks are usually worn out. I'd find an NPR flat bed and build your own set up.. its not that complicated..

    You must have a better selection than the stuff I've seen.. I was finding 8 year old trucks with slipping trans, 250,000 miles and rough paintand bodies..

    I got them with 130k miles, good paint tires and not missing any of the spray system. There are duds out there.

    I love those old hippos and to a lesser extent the rhinos.

    The ones I've seen have around 120k to 160k miles. I have not seen any in person yet, but I would make sure they are mechanically sound before purchasing, I'd hate to buy a truck that would nickel and dime me to death!
