If you are thinking about making the jump to a mist sprayer for your spraying applications, one of the main decisions that you will need to make is whether to go with a gas engine or PTO driven mist sprayer. All of our mist sprayers, whether they are engine powered or PTO driven, can be used in any application, but some terrains are easier to reach with an engine powered mist sprayer rather than a PTO driven sprayer.
Today we will walk you through the benefits for each type of mist sprayer in order to help you make an informed decision about what will be best for your needs.
Gas-engine mist sprayers
Gas powered mist sprayers allow for more versatility in transporting to your application site. Trucks, ATVs, UTVs, as well as trailers, are all viable options for the transportation and application with the mist sprayer. Due to this, gas engine mist sprayers allow for more versatility with your spraying applications, as they can reach a wider terrain. Ideal applications include:
- Vineyard Spraying
- Fruit & Vegetable Spraying
- Fence, Brush & Pasture Spraying
- Mosquito Spraying
- Golf Course Spraying
Engine driven mist sprayers generally require more maintenance, such as oil changes and other routine service.
PTO driven mist sprayers
PTO driven mist sprayers allow you to spray with minimal maintenance when compared to an engine driven mist sprayer, but are more restrictive on the terrain that you can cover. PTO mist sprayers also produce much less noise during applications, making them perfect for livestock applications. Ideal applications include:
PTO driven mist sprayers are designed to be connected to category 1, 2 & 3 tractors.
