    Default Can my wife run a sprayer off a GT3000

    We have a 25HP Kohler Command 54" deck GT3000 and the wife wants to pull behind a 15 gallon electric sprayer for the fruit trees.

    I keep hearing weird things about the magneto / alternator and how it eats LED lights, which of course a motor is not, but I wanted to make sure that the tractor electric won't be effected by this setup. It does have a large, car sized battery so I guess she could run it with the engine off but I would rather her run it with it on.

    As long as you have a good voltage regulator / rectifier it should work fine.

    I would think it would work fine, I doubt that little pump motor is going to be very particular about it's power.

    I use mine on my GT but it has a power point. You might want to add one.
