    The tank on unit is 1 gallon so the weight is 8 lbs and it is a very small 12 volt battery which is another 2 lbs

    Ive seen these before and have thought about getting one. I am not to the level of a full ride on spreader/sprayer either. 3k just seems like a lot for this but I already have a spreader mate so i could use this to spread and spray as needed.

    I know I have been around a long time but before there was ride on sprayer/sprayers there were these units.

    So for a smaller newer business what is your opinion on them. At this point im mainly smaller yards 5k and under but do go up arpund 10k where some power would help when it comes to labor.

    At 1 gallon for spreader mate that's some ULV there. If I may ask whats the sq ft are you applying on in that one gallon?

    I think there is one that is a smaller version of it but this one takes up the whole inside of a 80lb hopper.
