Forum Title: Squeegee / spray systems that could increase efficiency
Hi Guys I'm interested in getting a spray bar set up that could be used for larger parking lots and roadways - the aim being to reduce manpower demands. I've seen the buggy type machines and was wondering if they eliminate the need for cutting in with a squeegee /board? Do people like these machines?

Some of the buggy’s have a spray shield that you can get next to some flat edges, but it’s hard. The buggy’s themselves are huge labor savers. You can get some serious footage with them. Biggest draw back is transporting them to the job and also filling them because you can empty so fast. If you can get a good buy, you won’t go wrong. There’s some for sale on this site.

Originally posted by BoCoMo View Post I've used both the trailer with the spray bar and a buggy with spray bar. Obviously, the buggy is quicker because of the maneuverability. However, you actually cut in a little bit more for the machines than what you would to hand spray. My opinion is that you could probably get away with a curb Shield if you were spraying a street but in parking lots I feel like you would likely need to cut in by hand. I'm actually getting ready to buy a 9-foot spray bar for my trailer so I have been looking at these same options. Spray bars are awesome. We have one on all of our tanks and also our buggy. If you do any sort of wide open stuff, you’ll be amazed at how much material you can place.
