    I purchase a Lesco space saver sprayer for my business. It is a 200 gallon system with a 5.5 Kawasaki engine and paid right at 3200.

    Runner,

    How did you find it for $400??? What luck.
    Has anyone ever bought an old used one and repaired it?

    IS it worth the time and money???

    100/300 gal 5.5hp briggs, hypro roller pump. 300 ft of 1/2in hose. Manual rewind but great for the arms. $700

    50 gal roundup sprayer with hypro roller 150 ft of 3/8in hose $400

    Do the math, these things are basic to make, a lesco sticker on the side doesnt justify the hefty price tag.

    I have a nice setup on ebay right now. I paid over $5000 for it but am letting it go for $1950 plus shipping up to wherever the bidding goes. If I was going to keep doing spraying I would hang on to it but I am downsizing. If you want to see it go to ebay and do a search for lesco. It has a 200 gallon fiberglass tank with honda 5.5 motor, Hypro D30 pump, Cox 12v electric dual hose reel with 200' hose and a 25gallon spot spray tank too. There's more IM me with any questions.
