    Default 6 Volt Gator, 12 volt TSC spray pump ?

    Hi folks, I got a TSC 25 gallon sprayer on sale and didn't realize it has a 12 VDC pump and my Gator electrical system is 6 VDC. Any suggestions how to make my sprayer pump work off the Gator system ? Or any suggestions on a replacement 6 VDC pump- model and source ? Tnx.

    I thought the gator's with the exception of the toy ones were all 12volt ... one just keeps finding out.

    You could pick up a 6 volt golf cart battery and wire it in series with the existing battery to power the pump. You'd need to charge it with a battery charger when it runs low.

    I thought so also? Curious what model and how old this Gator is.

    Well the sprayer is 12volt so he could just carry a 12 volt battery in the bed of the gator and recharge that when needed.

    This is the only 6 volt Gator I have ever seen. John Deere Utility Tractor 6 Volt by Peg Perego

    Convert the Gator to 12v.

    Buy a 2nd pump and run them in series at 6v apiece.

    Buy a 6v pump.

    Buy an up-converter to produce 12v from 6v.

    Buy a new Gator.

    6v battery is best idea. Charge it very few years.
    There is no "I" in team, but there is a "Me" if you want to jumble it up a bit...

    You'd have to run them in parallel.

    That would work, but the extra 6v battery would give you more run time between charges.
