    I have a Hypro HYP9202 roller pump that puts out max 105 gpm and 180 psi. Is this to much gpm, are can the extra be used for aggitation. And will 180 psi be enough with 300' of hose. I was wanting to use it with a 5.5 honda, and 50 are 100 gal. tank.

    Sorry its not a roller pump, its a centrifugal pump if that makes a difference.

    What volume (GPM) are you after? What is inside diameter of spray hose? 3/8"? 1/2"?

    The Hypro 9202C is rated at 105 gmp at 180 psi at 6000 rpm.

    The Honda 5.5 engine will not develop that much torque.

    The Hypro 9203C-R pump is rated at 110 gpm at 80 psi direct coupled to a Honda 5.5 gas engine. The 9203C-R is rated at 136 gmp and 180 psi at 6000 rpm.

    Your 9202C is a counterclockwise rotation pump and will therefore have to be belted to the Honda engine. I would expect you to get something less than 110 gpm at 80 psi with that set up.

    Will the pump do the job?? You did not state what the "job" was. Hose length and dia will be major factors in what kind of "job" this spray system will do.

    I need to spray a few 1 acre lawns , and mostly 2,000- 10,000 square foot lawns, I only need it for spraying fert and pre and post .I dont have a hose, but I was thinking of using a small boom setup, with 300' of hose, But now Im thinking Im better off just buying a spray rig thats already assembled. I was trying to get off cheap on my first sprayer, and buy a new one later.
