    I do lawn care applications as of now but i am considering on doing tree and shrub care also. With that said, how many other tanks will i need? I know you can not cross lawn app tanks with tree and shrub. Plus i will ned a sprayer strong enough to spray trees. Do many of you guys buy split tanks with two seperate pumps and reels?

    One motor and separate belt drives for each pump would work--but two motors is simpler--maybe. Possibly you need two separate skid sprayers and some kind of slide out system to switch them. Or...separate trailer for the tree sprayer. Tree sprayer needs much bigger pump and larger hose, as high volume at high pressure is needed for big trees.
