    I've got a chance to buy a hydro drive toro pro line sprayer w/ a 50 gallon tank for a good price. Does anyone have any experience spraying liquid fert out these w/ the smaller nozzles? Does it work good? Any thoughts or experiences. Thanks I'd like to be able to spray fert and weed control for my bigger comm. properties.

    Hydro pro line sprayer. Is this a device to paint white yard line markings on football fields?

    LOL! I hope not.

    A small sprayer sounds like a good deal. However...it is probably set up for spraying medium pressure medium volume. You need high volume for applying liquid fertilizer--about 2 to 4 gallons per minute. You are better off applying your fertilizer dry. Then use it to spray your weeds as a second step.

    You will probably want to add an electric reel. You can easily substitute or add a big plastic tank--200 gallons is not very expensive.
