I saw a truck today that had 2 tanks on it with a 12V electric pump (100psi). With a chem lawn gun and a yellow tip. He said it worked fine for him. Pumps would last about 6 months.

My question is. Do these set ups really work? Does anyone on here have one or knows someone that has one? If so, what are the pros and cons?

It looked like a really nice set up.

Thanks

I know a guy who uses one (100 gallon). He says his works great. My only concern who be the chemicals settling to the bottom unless the sprayer has some form of agitation.

I've been using an electric spray system for 2 years now and will never go back to the motor driven system. Before I found out about them I had been fighting with the Gas engines for 27 years. I gess you can teach an old dog new tricks. I t is clean, quiet, and virtually maintance free. You can get pumps that last for years. No more fumes, gas and oil, it's great.
Just find a reliable company to build it for you and you will never go back to those dinosuar sprayer again. Good luck! If I can help let me know.

I paid 4,700 for the unit as I needed to spray Trees and deep root feed. I'm sure a lawn care unit runs about 3000.
We recently sprayed 1600 trees on a golf course and only had to recharge one time and thats because we pretty much left it on for 6hrs stright the first day. The next day we turned it off and on as we moved around and it never ran out of juice. We pulled it behine a Stiner on a trailer so we couldn't hook it up to a recharging system like you can when you load it on a truck. I was pertty skeptical at frist but this thing worked like a charm. No Gas, No noise, No Fumes! The hold Green Industry should swich to these units. It could help a little to get the environmantalist off our backs.
