    i have a 30 gal. storage tank which can be used to fill my z..
    have you guys ever used the clients hose to fill the z spray?
    i think it is a bad idea..

    I did until I got a 200 gallon spacesaver from Lesco. I never felt right about it.

    Well, at least here in NC you'd have a bigger issue than just using their water hose. If the Dept of AG checks you or sees you filling it with no backflow preventer you are in violation of the Pesticide law.

    I was just about to say the same thing as you Mike...Most all new houses here In Ontario have Back flow preventers.
    We all want to stay away from liability Matters

    I never have. I don't think it's professional. I used a 200 gal as a nurse tank on my 10x18 deck over. Problem for me was I needed the deckover for tractor work too.

    I just purchased a 80 gallon "nurse tank" from Gregson Clarke and like it a lot. They had a post on here not long ago with a pic of it. I put it in my enclosed trailer. It runs off a 12 volt battery. Sit's in the bulkhead area of my trailer and takes up no additional space. I had been looking for something like this for some time or an example of such to make.

    A full tank in the Z and another 80 gallons your carrying enough material to do 300K.

    Finn -

    Is your tank just sitting on the floor of the trailer?? Or do you have it mounted high??
