    Well as the title says, im needing some advice on equipment purchases this year. This year I will be adding liquid applications. Here are two setups I have in mind. Either purchasing a skid sprayer and a lesco ride on spreader or purchase a z spray the junior 36 model, because I have a handful of gated properties that have deep back yards.

    Heres a rough estimate of the cost.
    Skid sprayer 4,000
    Lesco ride on 3 to 3,500
    Z spray 36 I found online for 8 or 8,500, I will call my dealer when I get closer to making a decision for exact price. This is just what a website had it listed at and I figured it couldn't be to much off.

    So I could run the skid and ride on for around 8,000 or do just the z spray for around 9,000. Keep in mind these are rough cost and this is with out tax. I would like to know your thoughts on these set ups and what has worked best for you in the past. Thanks

    The above would work fine or a Z. Why not forget the skid and do it the best way on a Ride on

    They both spray liquid to to remove weeds

    and A chest or hand spreader for small places and a back pack

    Thanks Charles, I just wanted to hear peoples opinions on the two setups. Im really leaning towards the z spray. I just wasn't sure if there was something I was missing about skid sprayers. I know a lot of people run them. Well at least around here.
