    I am thinking about buying an enclosed trailer to setup for doing lawn apps. I would appreciate any pics that you guys have. I am thinking something that will hold a pallet or 2 of dry fert, a 200 gallon skid sprayer, and room for back packs and a spreader. Would like to have room for a T3000 or perma green or similar product later.

    I have a permagreen for sale which is on your dream set-up you want. It has 12 hours on it. I believe an enclosed trailer would be nice. That way all your fert would stay dry. You might want to check the weight though. A 200 gallon skid would be about 2000 lbs full plus 50 lbs per bag of fert. That would start getting heavy for an enclosed trailer. Maybe 1 pallet of fert would be ok. A permagreen, 200 gal skid, and dry fert would def give you options such as spreading fert and spray herbicides with your ride-on and spraying say insecticide with your sprayer. If you are going with a skid mayybe get a spilt 100/100 so you will have more versatility.

    I too am thinking about going w/ an enclosed trailer with maybe a 300 gallon tank. would be nice to keep the dry fert out of the weather and park the PG in there(hopefully a T-3000 next year after demoing) Thinking maybe a 16' tandem axle would be nice

    I have a box truck and it would be similar. If you look under my personal profile I have several pics on there.

    Box truck/enclosed trailer is the way to go IMO!

    If you are going with an enclosed trailer (good idea, IMO), then I recommend you consider our High Performance 12V electric sprayers since no one can reasonably be expected to operate a gas engine in an enclosed trailer. :nono:

    We have several configurations up to 200 gal.

    Pumptec High Performance 12V sprayers are to other 12V sprayers like a motorcycle is to a bicycle. :)

    agree, if your going to run a gas engine in an enclosed trailer you would have to figure a way to plumb the fumes out a vent. Still a little scary being inside the trailer with combustion engines running.
