    Water weighs 8.3 pounds per gallon, so 100 gallons would add up to 830 pounds.

    Gallon of water is about 9 lbs. I would say the spray rig probably 200???
    So it looks like you have about 1100 lbs.

    probably around 1/2 a ton with a skid mounted tank and gas pump, just an estimate though
