    ok well i was wondering if anyone else put liquid down on entry ways of buildings or even sidewalks in addition to driveways in lots and stuff....

    Well when i had my truck sprayer rebuilt i got a new truck sprayer i upgraded a couple things but forgot to put the hand sprayer back on so i decided to build a walk behind sprayer in my spare time!

    Platform is an old walkbehind fertilizer which i found next to a neighbors trash. $0
    2GPM pump $50
    1/2" PVC + connectors $ I had floating around
    Misc. Parts... wire,tubing, clamps bucket,lid, switch $15

    Right now it is being ran off of a stanley jump starter which i never use....it was a gift! (i personally like my tow truck jumper cable connects better!)

    I also turned the spray volume down a bit so it doesnt OVER apply the brine!
    I think its an 24" boom perfect for those few resi sidewalks we spray
    5 gallons isnt much but it will be ok for what we do...
    I liked the bucket idea because its easy to fill straight from the trucks tank or my other tanks

    Still got a little bit of work to do like cleaning up the wires... I will be adding a small light to it soon!

    What do you guys think???
