my truck is a silverado 1500 and its a short bed. so if the skid sprayer weighs 300 lbs + 8.3lbs x 100gal of water = 1130 pounds then i add 200lbs for myself, plus 10 bags of fert for 500lbs then 50 lbs for misc tools such as spreader, additional chems, etc.. total weight on truck full would be roughly 1900 lbs which i believe is pretty close to the max rating in the bed of this truck (from my google search) however, would like to hear from someone who has put a skid sprayer in a silverado 1500?? would slosh from 50 gallons in a 100 gallon tank be that bad? i thought of a ride on, but have many small lawns, many hills.. ride on may not work for me. it sucks that many potential customers will not give me a chance, because i do not have a spray rig. i've gotten great results without a skid sprayer, with all granular and using my backpack sprayers. I think many feel the need to see the entire lawn sprayed with a liquid, because its something they can't do on their own, but they can easily spread stuff from home depot. guess i need to work on my sales pitch.. lol. thinking of getting spray rig this spring when i have the cash.
