Forestry Suppliers has some 12v sprayers in this size range. But none in a "push cart." I'd have a few concerns about the setup you describe. 25gals. weighs 200lbs. Add the weight of tank, pump and a cart and wheels that can handle it and say it's 220. A car battery weighs another 20 or 30. A smaller battery might not run the length of your work day. Heck the car battery might not. The units of this size I've seen are set up to mount on or be pulled by an ATV or garden tractor with the 12v supplied by the gas engine. Pushing around 250lbs is OK on flat, firm ground. But hills, steps, bumps, mud, wet grass will all be a problem.
If you can tolerate the noise a back pack mist blower with gas engine might be better. If noise is the issue maybe a hand pumped back pack sprayer. Either can be quickly refilled from a nurse tank back at the roadway. Or maybe a 12v sprayer run off a nice quiet pick-up truck and hose long enough to reach your plants.
