I bought a 25Gal John Deere in bed sprayer. If you buy one of these throw the directions away. The box is filled 3/16" metal mounting brackets. The directions do not show how to assemble the 25gal sprayer but gives detailed instructions on mounting the the 45gal and the 90gal. These metal pieces are only used for 45 and 90 gallon the 25gal only uses 4 rubber feet. There are no directions on assembling the the boom sprayer but it's easy to figure out. There are no directions on connecting the electrical. I had to make my own 12v adapter it was missing from the box. The little sprayer after shipping costs a little over $600.00. You can buy sprayers that are much cheaper but I made the mistake and thought John Deere would be the best rout. I way over paid. You have to pay for about 50lbs of metal brackets that are useless. The sprayer works great though. It has the wand that will spray up to 30 feet and the boom sprays a 5' swath. The sprayer is perfect for what I need it to do, keep the weeds down in my white rock front yard (about a 1/4 acre). I'm in a wheelchair and my wife has a bad back so something like this tool is a blessing. This is just a picture of the sprayer I'll take some of mine soon. The brakets to hang the boom sprayer were not in the box. There was an angle braket that I could use to hang the boom off the the rear bumper guard. I liked mounting it this way much better anyway. Again no directions for 25gal sprayer.

That sucks, I hate that happened, on the other hand, I am glad it is working for you.

I already had a pull-behind type sprayer that I used with my lawnmower, so I just took the wheels off, flipped the sprayer arms completely over, and now have something similar to what you have. I bought a plug-in lead and connected it directly to the battery posts. It's turned out to be a good set-up.
