    50 gallon Lesco tank with 300 ft. 3/8 in. hose and electric reel.
    When I grow that side of the business more, this will be used as a nurse tank for a ride on.

    kppurn,
    Is that a short or long bed truck. It looks like a short bed in the picture, but I never know. How much room is left in your truck with the sprayer in it? I am looking to get a truck, and want an extended cab, but I am undecided on a short or long bed. Any opinions?
    Thanks

    specialtylc,

    Whne you say that you put your skid together,does that mean that you purchased the parts individually? Or did you order the whole unit with your specs?

    If you built it, I would like to know what it cost you, the places where you got your stuff and maybe some assistance. I am looking to having a similar set up, but maybe only a 250 gal tank...

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
