    I was wondering if you guys thought it would be more productive to have 2 200 gallon tanks with 400ft. hoses and two guys split up properties or 1 200 gallon tank and one ride on of some sort and 2guys split the property? We have done a ton of thinking and don't see a ride on speeding us up that much in spraying( hose is a b#### to pull but not that bad), however we do see the speed of gran. to be better on the rider.

    Sorry to post again, just looking for all the advise I can get before we make a purchase next week.

    Thanks Very Much

    One Man, One boom sprayer with fifty ft hose and gun, and one nurse tank.
  3. 23 acres to spray, how many times per year? How many other large properties do you have? How profitable is 23 area job. Do you have tractor? What are you spraying for? How far from water source and how long to fill up. 10 to 15 gal per acre if herbicide. need 200 to 300 gal of mix.

    How about a 200 to 300 gal 3 pt hitch pto sprayer, or 5 to 300 to 300 gal pull behind sprayer with engine. Do you have something that could pull 1000 to 3000 lbs? maybe rent tractor for the day?
