    I'm in the market for a 50 to 100 gallon skid sprayer for doing lawn fert treatments. But I don't know any good brands that will last and also what's a decent price for on I'm only doing about 15 yards out of all the accounts that requires treatments I got my license for applications and just need a spray rig I'm using a fert spreader from lesco and spot spraying and it's not doing a good job weeds are still poping up

    I have a lesco 200 gallon space saver that I really like. For 100 gallons I'd say it would probably start around a grand.

    No. Maybe home made.

    My 50 gallon was more than that

    I said they probably start around a grand. Depending on the age and the condition it could be more.

    I am a buy once kind of person.... I know you can't truely justify it right now but if you are planning on expanding. I would go with a "ride-on-spray". I personally think doing lawn treatments with a skid sprayer is a time of the past. That is just me.... A ride on spreader/sprayer can be used for everything from granular fertilizer, seed, lime, spraying, and much more....
