    If your going to run the hose from the back, get yourself a roller kit for the hose reel if not the hose will keep flipping to the back of the reel.

    Yeah it's a 50 gallon with a 5.5 horse briggs. I'll probably mount it to a trailer I've got, that way I don't have to keep putting in and out of the truck. That roller idea sounds like a good idea. Where could I pick up something like that?

    If you can mount it sideways, it would be much easier to use.

    Not to rain on your parade....but you will think that 50 gallon unit is too small sooner than you think.

    I have 100 gallons and it is barely enough sometimes. My next one will be 300 gallons.

    My spraying jobs aren't that large. Even if that happens I have acess to more water on the job sites.:cool2:

    Remember if you fill on the job site don't forget your backflow device.

    I finish my pesticide liscense requirements for Indiana this week. How much does it cost for a set up like that? My wife says I cant spend any more money on my buisness till I pay off my $15k of stuff. Fourtunatly I have about 2000 flyers left and the entire summer.
