    This is a custom built 305 gallon 8'skid sprayer, with 5.5 hp Briggs and Stratton engine, Riverside 2" 160 gpm poly pump, set up for anti-icing and deicing. The spray boom is approx 8' wide. Boom attaches to trailer hitch with pin. Comes with a 6' x 1" quick couple boom hose. It will spray up to 16' wide with the current boom setup, and can easily be narrowed to 10' wide. It has the plumbing / valve set up to easily attach a standard garden hose or can be adapted for a future hose reel. All suction hose is 2" pvc and pressure hoses are 1" EPDM. When fully loaded it will weigh about 3,400 pounds. It's too much weight for my truck, so trying to sell. Price is $2,250

    Wish it was closer. Did you build it ? Looks great, less than half the price I'm looking at.

    Curious on what you are using for a controller? Nice sharp looking unit. Have some interest, but have to check out where your town is.

    Thanks to all for the "nice looking " comment. Yes, I did build it, it was one of my winter projects. An hour here and there.

    No variable rate controller, but can be added. I have yet to see the need for one. If I want less gallon per acre I simply speed up 1 or 2 mph or select a different nozzle. Nozzles are matched according to the sprayer pressure to give the gpa rating traveling at a given speed. Keeping it simple keeps the cost down and less $$ maintenance also. It does have an electric valve that controls the on/off function of the spray bar. It is a single circuit spray bar. More can be added, but more money also. That would depend on your spraying needs.
