    IM BUYING A NEW WYLIE SPRAY RIG 200 GALLON TANK WITH A 5.5 HP HONDA WITH A ELECTRIC REEL AND 300FT OF 800 PSI HOSE WITH A HYPRO 8 ROLLER PUMP AND A 180 DEGREE SWIVEL HOSE REEL . A TEE-JET 25660 (CHEMLAWN) SPRAY GUN. ON A SKID AND THEY WILL MOUNT IT ON MY TRAILER INCLUDED... THE TOTAL PRICE IS 3414.00. Is this a good deal?

    Anyways ive heard bad and good about diaphram vs. roller. That roller was trash and diaphram was good but if you spray pendamethalon it has to be waterbased.

    Can some comment about this please.
    Thanks

    For that price, I would think that the setup would be with a Hypro D-30 (diaphragm) instead of a roller pump, more suited to some of the slurries we tend to pump(even if not intentiional). If the reel is a Hannay, you're probably in the neighborhood of a lot of skid setups. By the way, that Teejet gun is not a chemlawn gun, there are some big differences between the two and the Teejet(sp) gun is a cheaper gun, so that you know.
