    I posted the other day about this Permagreen recharable Sprayer on a kinda of on topic forum but wanted to start one just for this Permagreen Rechargable Sprayer. I ordered one of the Rechargable spray units from Permagreen and it came fast last week.

    It is 2.5 gallon 1/4 Gal/1,000 rechargable sparyer that is easy to install, 4 clamps attached to tank and hold on to the lip of the spreader and then you remove 3 screws on the gear box and attach the sprayer nozzle bracket and attach wires and hoses to the Spreader frame.
    Came with a new Spreader cover and has a spray wand. It has a push button on off, press down and hold button and pump is on. Great for spot spraying also.

    I played around with it spraying one tank water, it works great. Will definitely save time doing areas Only Once I have no access to with the Triumphs.
    I didn't know till today you can order them from Site One Supply Locations also.

    One quick pass on hot paver area to show the low volume low drift spray width.

    Water was evaporating quick on hot pavers so went over area a few times to show Sprayer width better with just water.

    I know this is an old thread but I am considering getting these for employees on granular rounds so they can spot spray when needed or blanket spray new clients...
    How does it hold up to all day use?
    Can a technician handle a full load of fert and liquid without unreasonably over exerting himself?
    Is it top heavy? How is stability on hills?

    I don't know about this one specifically, but I have a similar drop in spray tank from Gregson-Clark. It works great in my ride on spreader, but I don't like it for the walk behind. It holds 9 gallons of water, which is no joke to push up a hill at a consistent speed.

    I have had mine and used it for over a year.
    It does work good, holds 2.5 gal and sprays .25 gal / 1,000 sqft.
    It isn't too top heavy on hills but can be on the one side if a very steep slope with little material in the hopper and tank full.
    Since it does sit down in the hopper it doesn't add much weight since it takes up a little space where materials would be.
    It is definitely a time saver.

    I had the older model from back in the day where the tank was on the front. Worked great. I am sure this one is outstanding.
