    I had one twice that size 10 or 11 ft wide I think it was around $3400 6 or 8 yrs yrs ago. Just sold it last yr don't spray anymore. If your spraying a lot of turf it is great. You can spray in 20 mph wind no problem, but you just have to be careful.

    Three years ago, the MSRP was $3,000.00. I bet they are selling for close to $3500.00, or more, now. I no longer have access to pricing.

    Yes, they are very nice, but VERY expensive.

    I have a 52" pro lawn push that I bought used. I think he said it was over 2000 new.

    "Rittenhouse" [I think that is how it is spelled] has shielded sprayers you might look at.

    Hey, I'm considering buying the Prolawn Shielded Walk behind sprayer model ESC52... It looks like its around $1400 with shipping, does anyone have this sprayer?

    How do you like it?
    Easy to tell if nozzels are clogged?
    How about spraying on hills with it?
    Does anyone have a used one they would like to sell?

    Let me know ! Thanks!
    Mike

    I can't really see the use for these things here in Michigan, because here, if there is anything over 10 mph winds, we are prohibited from spraying at all regardless of WHAT we are using.

    I would sell you mine but you are too far away.
    It sprays great and all the spray is contained. Since the spray is so contained you have to be real careful about overlap or lack of because just a couple of inches with this is a lot.
    With the sight glasses it makes it real easy to tell if one nozzle is different than the other.
    Going down a slope it is real easy to push--------the other way, not so much:laugh: Firm ground with short grass it pushes about like a full fert spreader but on anything else it is harder. I use a backpack way more.
    I am thinking about trying to mount it to the front of my Walker mower. I am also thinking about trying to mount one of the nozzles like on a T3000 to cover a larger area each pass or just getting a Synergy for my spreader.

    Turf Dawg, I would be willing to pay shipping charges, and I travel quite often, so shipping the prolawn sprayer by freight. How much would you want $$ for your sprayer?
