I see it has the PVC braided hose,..and I've seen people over the years comment about using it as well. I personally couldn't even imagine using that type of hose for application. It always seemed to be too stiff and have to much memory. But,..maybe they make some better than others?

Anyhow,..I suppose that sprayer would make money,..I mean really,...just about anything you can throw together in this service will net a profit. I would rather make my own sprayer if I were to go that route. But, I've also been doing this for almost 25 years, and have a pretty good understanding of how homemade equipment is usually ten times better than what you can buy,...if nothing else,..simply because you control every component,..and that gives you an understanding of how it works as well.

For someone just starting out,..and wanting to avoid the "hassle" of research and rigging,...it will likely make money in some respect.

13 gallon tank isn't very much as a primary sprayer,...If I were to use something like this,..it would be for a specialty cleaner,..like gutter cleaner or deck cleaner.  Pump isn't matched to tank capacity,..even with the pump pressure cranked up,..which reduces flow,..to maybe 2 GPM,..that's only 6-7 minutes of spraying. Would not be efficient for house washing or roof cleaning,..or anything with any amount of surface area. 

I use 1 GPM pumps with a (5) gallon bucket, for my hand truck sprayer. I use for gutter mix mostly,..but also use it for decks and sometimes concrete and flagstone. 

One other thing,..unless you buy extra hose,..you would pretty much have to have a very low trailer to be able to get it on and off,..and then would still likely need ramps of some sort.

I would also put taller pneumatic wheels and tires on it.

I give it a big thumbs down as a tool I would ever use in its current design.
