Lots of spray equipment customers and prospects ask me what I think about power spray trailers versus truck mount power sprayers.
Here are some thoughts:
Trailer Sprayer Pros:
Doesn’t tie up your truck with spray equipment. You can still leave your termite spray trailer at home and take your wife/husband out to dinner in your truck.
Truck doesn’t depreciate as much as it will with spray equipment installed (chemicals & weight put lots of extra stress on your truck).
Not dependent on one vehicle. If you have a problem with your truck, you can use another vehicle to haul the weed control trailer.
You can often get a larger tank on a trailer than you can in your service vehicle. This boosts productivity by allowing the technician to do more or larger jobs each day without having to stop to fill up.
Trailer Sprayer Cons:
Trailer sprayers are more difficult to maneuver. Some people find them difficult to backup or maneuver in tight spaces.
Trailers can be more prone to accidents. Talk to your insurance agent before purchasing. I personally would not let a young driver pull a trailer. See our prior trailer sprayer post for accident photos.
Storage & security can be an issue and should be considered before purchase.
