    I would like to purchase a sprayer for next season. Would you guys recommend a push/ride on type sprayer, like a Permagreen? Or, a tank setup with a hose that goes in the back of the pickup? I'm wondering if the hose is difficult to deal with, especially on large properties. Either way, can you recommend some manufacturers with reasonable pricing? Thanks

    You can make alot of money just with a common 300 gal tank set-up. The ride ons have their place but granular fert is still more expensive than spraying.

    Sprayer I reccommend: GNC Industires

    River Bend industries

    Gergsdon Clark looks like good product.
    You will find most use the same componets

    Your best bet would be to go to Westhefer in lawnrence and they can set you up with a good sprayer.

    I think a permagreen would be nice for larger lawns, but for most of the lawns i do which is under 12,000 sq ft a tank and hose set up i think is better. eisier to get in and out of nooks, and when ur done all u have to do is push a button to reel in the hose. JMO
