Pointers for Buying a New Rig

February 15, 2017

The beginning of the year is the ideal time to evaluate equipment needs, review inventory and research spray equipment options if you need to replace or purchase another unit. Take the sting out of buying another truck by following these guidelines:

Growth.  Are you currently able to keep up with customer demand? Is your business growing steadily? It’s important to weigh the benefits of purchasing a larger tank to keep up with your growing business.  Planning for growth eliminates the need to play catch up later, and the possibility of overspending, to meet business needs.

Demand. Consider purchasing a unit with two different size tanks if your budget permits. These tanks give technicians more flexibility during applications.  Graham offers a 600-gallon/100-gallon split-tank combination unit of two tanks. The split tanks can be set up so that each one sprays a different formula or both spray the same formula, with hose modifications to accommodate one or more technicians.

Warranty. Spray rigs often outlast the truck which carries them. Purchase a heavy duty truck with a good warranty. Diesel trucks should have a five-year, 200,000-mile warranty. Standard warranties for gas vehicles are five years and up to 125,000 miles.

If you decide to purchase a new unit, there are multiple benefits of buying from Graham:
