    This is my first year spraying full time and i am using all back packs for now until i get more business i need a way to fill the back packs up as we mix in the field maybe a fresh water tank with a pump. i was thinking maybe a 25 gal tank with a attwood 750 pump but not sure of a source for the tank would like something that i can mount to in the bed of my truck that does not take up too much space anyway any advice from you vets out there or maybe picture of your setup would be greatly appreciated. thanks:usflag:

    There are lots of 25 gallon tanks available. Mount a 12V pump on one. You can get 12 volt pump capable of 5 gpm for less than $150.

    Nothing beats the simplicity of a 2.5 or 5 gallon jug for filling a backpack IMO.

    I actually sold my lesco 200 gallon sprayer and decided to go back to using back packs. Quicker and easier if you ask me. We use a 125 gallon water holding tank bought from tractor supply. Just connected a garden hose and use gravity to fill up the back pack sprayers. Takes maybe 2 minutes tops to fill up a 4 gallon sprayer. Dont see any need for a pump.
