    Has anyone used an electric tank 200 gallon. I can get one for free but just not sure about it. I have never even heard of this all that i have used are gas.

    i had one many years ago,
    it worked
    i was only spraying herbicides, and it was all the
    setup could do to acheve 1.5gpm
    it had like a 4gpm flowjet pump
    worked best on a fully charged battery, flow would drop off
    though as the battery discharged
    of course if you had it in the back of a truck
    you could hardwire it to the truck

    you cant beat free, but be prepared to potentially invest a little money into it

    jet agitation maybe,
    but i could nt imagine it has any form of
    mechanical agitation

    you might ask what was being run in the tank

    It should have some kind of agitation/circulation just from the return line.

    Depending on whay you are using...good agitation may not even be needed.

    All I use is electric pumps!

    Love them. No fuel needed, start easy...and very quite!
