Used for spot spraying, often within an agricultural setting, spray tanks come in many shapes and sizes. They key to choosing the right spray tank is to know what to look for when comparing all the options. So, what should buyers look for in a spray tank? One of the first things to think about is of course, functionality. That spray tank should fit its purpose above all else. That means looking at the capacity of the tank, checking how many litres it holds, and weighing that up against how well it will work in its day-to-day use.
Comparing Spray Tanks
Another important factor is portability. If the spray tank is to be transported around large areas, it will need to fit comfortably on an ATV or quad bike, or on the back of a ute. The tank should be able to fit securely wherever it is placed, utilising tie-down straps or mounting points for strapless mounting. Next, look at power. How does the spray tank take power? Many will connect directly to 12V DC power using alligator clips, but bear in mind how much power it will take – ensuring it won’t drain smaller vehicles, such as smaller quad bikes.
The spray tank should also be easy and safe to fill. Check for a measuring jug that attaches to the spray tank, so that it’s always there when needed. As for the spray gun and hose, these should be secured onto the tank when not in use, and easy to access when it’s time to spray. Think about the type of coverage the spray gun offers, how many litres the tank will pump per minute, and whether the tank features an extended hose for spraying further away from the vehicle.
