Used logic or Enduramaxx would be my choice. Have a used Northstar here but not sure about pump condition so would let it go for £75 plus VAT etc.
 
I’m after a sprayer for the quad - budget under £200 - ones to avoid and ones that are ok . Don’t need the best just one that dose the job

I use one of these to look after a 75ac solar farm plus other paddock spraying.


Then I use a couple of different booms depending on the job. Either a 3m with standard nozzles like this:


Or a x-boom for upto 9m wide like this:



Whole lot was about £650 5 years ago but looks like prices have shot up, so I doubt you’ll find much for £200.

Using similiar here too.

Some cheaapie Chinese stuff on eBay but longevity is moot.... The issue is pump and as @warksfarmer points out, booms for different jobs.

My old tank and fixed 3m boom is ages old, but the twin diaphragm pump on it now, probably cost more that the original whole setup! ;)

The X booms are not cheap either. I am not sure I am sold on them, but they aren't half handy to throw herbicide under a panel...

Can’t remember the name at the moment but our pump does 25l/min and that works well. I think the original was about 10l/min but the supplier swapped it foc as it was nowhere near the capacity we needed. The biggest issue is the power supply from the UTV.
