Bateman RB 16 prime/purge recirculation

I’m looking to buy a Bateman RB16. Some seem to have the prime/purge spray boom recirculation fitted but others don’t.
Would people advise only to buy one with the recirculation system or do people manage fine without?

thanks in advance


Think you’ve answered your own question! If you haven’t got it you’ll manage without. Just saves that initial blast before you set up with a new tank and means you can clean the lines without ‘spraying’ anything. Also easier to blast the water out in winter if no frost-free storage. I don’t think I’d walk away from an otherwise perfect sprayer because of it.
