What tanks are you using for pre wet systems?

    We are setting up pre-wet systems for our v boxes this year and I am not sure where to find a tank that will work. All spreaders are in pickups so we are limited on space. We made one up last year with a cheap electric pump and a 15 gal at tank and mounted it on the top of the hopper screen. It worked but was a pain to fill up so often.

    Any insight would be great

    We use a TSC 35 gallon leg tank, I have it set to treat a 2 yard V box perfectly. I made a platform for it and the pump and it fit right in front of the v box, ran some clear 1/2" hose (from TSC) from the tank to a diaphragm pump I bought from Dultmier and then ran the same 1/2 hose to a spray nozzle at the end of the chain. I didnt use it last year but will be hooking it all back up for this season. PM me if you have any questions.

    We have purchased numerous tanks from plastic-mart.com. Not sure if they have the angled ones, still trying to find a source for those myself...

    If budget will allow I would get a ssaddle tank to fit along the side. TSC poly tanks would work well too
