They make one of, if not the best sprayers available in my experience. Is this a tow unit or a tractor mount?

If you are mounting on a tractor, make sure you add lots of weight to the front end, , I added 240 pounds in weights and use 45 gallon sprayers, man they sure save time over the 15 gallon units I started with as we do not have to stop and mix as often.

All the sprayers are drained in the fall before I put them away for the winter. Is this a tow unit?
