Here are some things to consider when buying tree spraying equipment:

1. What type of work will you be doing?

A spray rig can be used for tree spraying, root feeding or lawns. The type of work you plan to use it for affects the size tank you need, as well as the engine and pump size. The smaller engines are fine for root feeding and lawn work, but can not generate enough power to spray hardly more than 20-25 ft.
Engines available in 5.5, 8, 13, 18, 20, 24, or 31 HP. Pumps available in 10, 15, 20, 35, 40, 56 and 62 GPM.

Your hose length and gun type also reflect the type of work you'll be doing. Hoses are available in 3/8", 1/2" and 3/4" diameters, at 150' and 300' lengths. There is a range of spray guns available for spraying trees, lawns, or root feeding.

2. What size/capacity truck or trailer will you use to haul your Spray Rig?

One gallon of water weighs little over 8 lbs., so if you've got your 200 gallon tank filled, you're looking at a tree spraying rig around 1,660 lbs, not including the weight of the tree spray rig itself. SherrillTree Spray Rigs are constructed of light weight aluminum to reduce your vehicle requirements. However, if you need a complete truck/spray rig combination... we sell those too.
Tanks are available in 100, 200 and 500 gallon capacities.

3. Bells and whistles

There are a number of features available that go beyond the basic tree spraying rig. Adding an electric hose reel will save you time and energy compared to a manual crank reel. Roller guides on the reel guide the hose onto the reel in a neat and clean manner. Protect your rig from the elements with an all-aluminum truck body featuring three 72" roll-up door.
