Thanks Keith, I guess now I need to find out if a sprayer with a 12 V, 2.2 gpm pump,... is as good as a PTO powered roller pump that puts out 9.76 gpm.

I'm not familiar with either type of pump, but the sprayer with the 12 V pump IS about 1/2 the price, as the sprayer with the roller pump,... which one do you folks here on YT think would be the best choice for dependability and longevity?

Does a person "get what they pay for" with these different type sprayers?

Thanks, and I apologize for all the questions.

Roller pump is limited to types of herbicide, as opposed to centrifugal pumps, but electric pumps are not made for any serious spraying.

You will have to travel slow with a 30 foot boom for a 2.2 gallon pump to keep up your pressure.

Which means you will have to also use very small nozzles that will cause more plugging problems.

I don"t think the 12v 2.2 is what you want for a field sprayer. It will not last for long with constant flow. Then if you need agitation, depending on the chemical you use, you will not have enough volume for agitation.
