    What type of sprayer do you guys use or recommend? I am wanting to buy a sprayer, but I don't want to get something that will limit my program options. I will be using some granule urea and some suspension grade products, so good agitation will be important. What do you think of the Lesco Space Saver? Good Agitation?
    Thanks for the input,

    I used the lesco space saver for a few years and had good luck with it. its well designed and easy to service.

    When I compared the Lesco space saver to the 200-gallon Gregson Clarke, I opted for the Gregson. I think the Gregson has a better pump than the Lesco, the Gregson takes up less bed space than the Lesco (I have 5 feet of bed open to use behind my sprayer) and I like the fact that the engine is on one side and the reel is on the other side (you have the option though of putting the engine and pump on the same side as the reel though if you want).

    I looked at both the Gregson clark and the Lesco Spacesaver. The Gregson clark looked like a good machine, but there is no local service out here. I opted for the spacesaver because I am on very good terms with my lesco dealer and they are close. I have been very pleased so far with the spacesaver, I am running lots of N, Fe, a little K with weed control and prodiamine (Barricade) I run 400 gallons per day no problems yet.

    there is little difference between sprayers. there is only 2 or 3 pumps they all use and the service on them is simple. Just get a setup that is the most useable in your application. Personally I have always liked the reel facing the rear of the truck so lesco was good for me. I would be hesitant on a sprayer with a roller pump. A good diaphram will last a lifetime with basic maintence.
