Questions to Ask Before Buying

- What is the warranty?
- What parts are likely to fail, and where do I buy replacement parts
- What maintenance is needed, and how do I do it?
- What will it be like once the sprayer is in the vehicle, and how easy will it be for a technician to use the sprayer?
- Will there be room for storage (toolboxes)?
- Is the sprayer easy to clean?
- Is the sprayer easy to service?
- Is this the sprayer I want to standardize the fleet with?
- If a leak develops, how does it shut off?
