I am new to this site, but have been in the turf business for many years. I am a golf course superintendent who does custom spraying and fertilizing on the side. I currently use a 200 gallon spray rig and drag 400’ of hose for all of my spray applications. I have been researching the stand on sprayers & spreaders and am wondering what benefits there are to using one vs. dragging a hose - other than the benefit of not having to actually drag a hose. Do you guys find a significant increase in productivity? The one concern I have with the self propelled sprayer is the small amount of spray volume. I use higher spray volumes as it provides better and more consistent coverage vs spraying at lower volumes. Do any of you run into any issues applying to lawns using lower spray rates for post or pre applications? Or do you have any issues with fertilizer burn if you spray foliar fertilizers at a lower GPA? Unfortunately I’m maxed out on how many yards I can take on, unless I find a way to be more efficient and cover more area at a faster pace. I always spray my pre-emergents instead of doing granular and will do one or two additional spray applications during the spring and summer(insect, fungicides, growth regulators, etc) depending on what the customer wants, so I do spray quite often in addition to slinging granulars. I searched other posts for the answers to my questions but mostly just found out why users prefer one brand of sprayer over the other. Right now I’m just trying to decide if I would see any real benefit from using one.
