    Anyone have any z-spray setup pictures. Looking to carry my z-spay in an enclosed trailer with an extra 100 gallon tank to fill the z-spray up from.

    Go on my profile and you will see pics of how we do it.

    100 gallon tank isn't going to cut it.

    That thing will go though 100 gallons of water by lunch on most days!

    Hey Rod,
    I was wondering how easy the Z loads into your box truck and handles the incline of the ramp. I'm thinking about getting a Z-jr 36 this winter. I'm gonna take my truck to Z-Spray and test out loading after the season ends.

    It does really well!

    When you are backing down loaded there it is really simple.
    When you are going up the ramp...if there is some liquid in the tank and hopper is empty it gets a little light on the front but if you step off and walk it up it goes up great.

    I love the set up and would highly recommend it!

    I tried the way you do it, you will be amazed at how much safer/more comfortable it is to go backwards in and forward out.

    Let me know what you think!!
