    Has anyone had any experience with a plunger pump? This is Hypro's:

    I would like a little more pressure but do like the output and DC feature. I'm looking for a lightweight pump if available. I have a 3.8 DC. The pump is good but not enough output for 5 nozzles with any volumn or pressure.
    What would be nice is that 2-cycle Solo 433 pump with a 25 gal tank.

    Hypro's suggested retail is $896.00 but there are lots of places selling for less that SR. Be sure to install a battery isolator as the amperage is so high you will drain the battery in no time at all.

    I'll PM you later tonight, but here is a pump that is designed for making your own sprayer. It is gas. I think it is equal to the output from the engine drive backpacks that I use. Cost is less than or equal to an electric pump. Note that it is a complete unit ready to be mounted and plumbed into your existing spray tank. http://www.gemplers.com/product/ME25/DRAMM-Portable-350-psi-Gas-powered-Sprayer
