    The truck is an 85' S-10, not in great condition but it runs good, all the spray equipment is in perfect condition. Just wondering what I should offer for this?

    I have a feeling that the truck is over the gvwr when the tanks are full.

    Looks like a good truck, I'd offer around 2 or 3 for it.

    I would definitely check the frame for sagging or other stress associated with that much weight being on it.

    Decent truck...decent spray setup...Together? No way. I don't care WHAT kind of springs you have on that truck...It isnt going to haul that sprayer even half full. The axle would be ready to break in half.

    If that has the 2.8L in it run away. If it has the 4.3L it may move it. But that is a BIG set-up in one of the Smallest trucks built. Truck is worth maybe $900 Spray rig is worth ??? Dont know what it is but i see honda, so i guessing he wants a ton.

    Gosh the spray rig is worth so much more then the truck. Id say just offer for it, then get it and mount it on something better.

    That's kinda what I thought, the spray set-up is awsome, but no way I could fill the tanks up past half-way and be able to move it. I was wanting to get some idea what the set-up would be worth? Thanks for any help
