Here at Asphalt Kingdom, we're proud to offer different types of sealcoat sprayer machines to suit the needs of a wide range of customers.

We have some basic sealcoat sprayer systems for new contractors and DIYers. And then we have those massive sealcoating spray systems designed especially for contractors who wish to scale their business.

What Sealcoating Sprayer Tank Size Should I Buy?

You may have set your sights on a particular spray system we have in our store. But the problem is you're unsure if the tank size suits your needs as a contractor.

Do you go for an asphalt sealcoat sprayer with a decent 130-gallon tank? Or do you take the plunge and go for a unit with the largest tank?

To help you make the right decision, let's take a look at the different options you have and see which asphalt sealcoat spray tank size is best for you.

130 Gallon Tank: AK130 Sealcoat Sprayer and AK130 Pro Sealcoating Spray System

AK130SpraySystem

Ideal for: New contractors and existing contractors who wish to expand their services to sealcoating. The sealcoat tank is also great for DIYers who own or manage mid-size to large commercial properties.

If you're new to the sealcoating business or you are a long-time property maintenance contractor who wants to try sealcoating this year, then the AK130 Sealcoat Sprayer is a good choice.

Its sealcoat spray tank can accommodate 130 gallons of asphalt sealer.

Its sealcoating coverage can reach up to 13,000 square feet, allowing you to sealcoat a small to mid-size grocery store or mall parking lot plus a couple of fast-food chain lots within the same day.

Ideal for: Sealcoating contractors who wish to scale their operations.

Are you in your second year as a contractor and want to scale your operations slowly but surely?

Do you need a piece of equipment that has a higher capacity than the AK130, but you're not yet ready to splurge? Then we recommend the AK230 Sealcoat Sprayer

Its sealcoat tank can hold up to 230 gallons of blacktop sealer and allows contractors to cover as much as 23,000 square feet of pavement.

That's enough to cover a mid-size to a large grocery store or mall parking lot in asphalt sealer, plus plenty to spare for a handful of smaller establishments and driveways afterwards.

The AirBoss 300 Air Operated Spray System's tank can hold up to 300 gallons of asphalt sealer, allowing contractors to cover as much as 30,000 square feet of pavement.

That's enough sealer to cover a large stadium or mall parking lot.

The high-capacity sealcoat spray tank is just one of the many benefits of owning this unit.

It is one of the few sealcoating spray systems in the market with an air-operated pump, which makes it a great a choice if you're planning to spray sealer mixed with additives and sand.

AK Pro Sealcoat Trailer System

Ideal for: Established contractors who service large and multiple parking lots

The AK Pro Sealcoat Trailer System is the best way to keep your equipment secure during transport and on the job site.

The high-capacity sealcoating tank and engine are welded into the trailer, so you don't have to worry about stolen equipment or parts coming loose.

It has plenty of space in front of the platform that you can use to transport extra asphalt maintenance supplies and equipment.

The sealcoating tank is made of premium and durable steel. It is available in different sizes to suit your business. Are you sealing residential properties and small to midsize properties right now? Then the AK Pro Sealcoat Trailer System's 300-gallon or 500-gallon tank is perfect for you.

If your company mainly serves large properties, such as airports, malls, car dealerships, and hospitals, then choose the trailer that comes with a 700-gallon or 1000-gallon steel tank.

This trailer is equipped with an engine, pump, hose reel, water tank, and sealcoat brush box. It comes with an extended side ramp, so there's no need to lift heavy equipment on the trailer's platform. Just wheel them in place, secure them, and you're all set.
