    I am starting to spray bulk salt off-site and need a recommendation for a flow meter. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Banjo is the TOP OF THE LINE when it comes to liquid spraying but the meter you would need 3" Probably is like $645....

    Im pretty good with just looking at the tank in the bed of the truck!
    know your pump say its 200 gallons a Min full throttle
    half throttle will give you 100GPM!

    Look up (Google) Dultimier, they have a few different types of meters.

    I looked at alot of that stuff, Sprayer controls, flow meters, gps, ect ect. Than some one gave me a K.I.S.S. Keep it simple, stupid.

    Yeah my buddy bought 5 or 6 New turbo tech/ turf units for like 7k EACH!
    When I could of built him the same/ clone for a about the quarter of the price!
    Thats with removing the "pointless stuff." Actually i wouldnt call it pointless but its just not necessary for spraying lots and sidewalks!

    If I was running a really big tank, say 1500 gallons or more, doing some really big lots, than some of that stuff would come in handy. I got a real simple set, 750 gallon tank, 4hp gas with one elec. valve, spray bar with 12 t-jet tips.

    When I bought my Turbo Turf sprayer they suggested one that was about $200 online.....can't remember the name though.....sorry. I'll see if I can locate it as I did write it down somewhere.
