    almost 100% of my applications are
    gradual.broadleaf weed control i spray with
    my ride-on- spreader/sprayer.
    fungicides are liquid and i use a greens
    wheelie push sprayer. merit i used gradual
    this season.
    i can see were that thak sprayer can fit in
    to my program. fungicide applications and
    the merit application (switch to w/p next
    season on merit) but this 50 gal capacity
    spooks me..
    SPRAYERS is this what i need or do you
    think i should go larger. its a used unit 3
    yrs. old and used a few times (lesco) for
    $750.00. at this point i am staying gradual
    with useing my lesco spreader and ride

    I started w/ a 100 gal. sprayer and found I was spending more time
    running back to the shop to fill it up than I was actually spraying
    w/ it. I bought a 300 gal. & now I can go all day with out refilling.
    ant I think you would be better off w/ a 200 gal. or larger sprayer.
