    How big of a unit are you looking to get? What do you want to do with it? I would probably say Lesco is a good place if you want to get something for doing lawn applications. But I have no experience with that.

    Lesco does sell a good spray unit, but if you have access to a Northern Hydraulics magazine you can order one and save a few hundred dollars.

    Ive got the one out of northern. It works fine, it was $800 less than lesco. Northern wanted $400 to ship it so I just drove to Atlanta to pick it up(2 1/2 hrs). I figured Id pay myself $400 and not them. Its the 200 gallon with the Honda Northstar ($2000). The northstar is a low end Honda, but no complaints so far.

    I have the Lesco 200 gallon space saver unit and love it. I still have half of my bed to use for other equipment or products. It has the Honda engine and 300ft hose with electric reel. I don't know about the other company but i am very pleased with my Lesco unit. I paid $3000.00 for this particular unit but it is the top of the line unit with Lesco.

    If you save the money on a cheap sprayer unit, what
    do you do when it breaks? Who do you call about warranty work?

    Buy one that you can easily get parts for and has authorized
    warranty repair service close by! It will save you $ eventually!
