    Can’t speak to one type over another, but being able to get parts and service without losing another spray window after a something goes wrong is super important. I have piece of equipment bought from a dealer two hours away. Reasonable, right? But the US/Canada border means I can’t get a mechanic to service it. Covid!

    If you have a local and trusted dealer, their expertise is as valuable as any theoretical improvement in deposition between two types of sprayer.

    Either way, you will be learning how to use whatever equipment you buy. You will be testing nozzle configurations. You’ll be testing pressure and ground speed. There is no reason to think you can’t get good coverage from the less expensive machine.

    Jason Deveau is a spray guru; you can find some of his stuff on line. Andrew Landers retired, but his stuff on how to work with sprayers is also good.
