I built a driveway sealer spray system from parts sourced at Tractor Supply and Craigs list.
It utilizes a 220 gal tank and a trash pump, wand and pressure valve. It cost around $500 but saved me over $1500, as I have a 600' driveway and am really persnickety about the driveway.

If anyone would like a picture or has any questions, let me know. I am new to the group, so not sure how to post picture at this time.

Sounds interesting, but sadly, my drive is gravel & will likely stay that way forever. No time to look up the pic uploading instructs, but maybe someone will guide you. Gotta run.

Would love to see pictures, even if my drive is gravel as well.
Easiest way to add a pic is to either click edit post on your original, or any of the reply buttons here. Then click "Go Advanced". You will have a few more buttons above the text box. One of them is a paperclip, that's your attachment manager. Once that's open, there is an Add Image button. Then Select Files. This last click opens up a standard windows screen to navigate around in your computer and find the files.
Once you upload, you can either click Insert Inline or Done. INS Inline will put them wherever you left your cursor in the text box, Done will put them at the end of the post in a separate box. Either way is right, just what you prefer.

If you want to play, there is a members test area on the forum page 3/4 way down or a little more. Those posts delete after a period of time.

Good luck, & ask questions.

Yes I did LOL.

Wanted to go back & check the labeling of the buttons and hit post instead of cancel.

Edited it, but thought I'd get it in before anyone noticed it.
Oh well, you're too fast Kenny. :D

Is that your unit, or one you patterned it from? Looks very capable. Thanks for the pic.

By the looks of that pic, it's a rep photo. Looks like you regulate the pressure with the return hose valve.

I will post some additional close ups on the unit. The pressure is regulated by the return flow valve and the ball valve on the wand. The only item I could not get at TS was the asphalt nozzles, which I purchased online.

Nice build. You could probably use that to spray any thick coating.

With the right nozzle, and not too thick for the pump, yes, it should spray most anything.
