I currently have a 2 gallon hand held RL Flow-Master for spraying grass & weed killer, broadleaf killer, & insecticide. The problem with this is I spend 3/4's of my time pumping up the pressure. I don't have an ATV so I have to spray manually. In Cabelas, I see they offer for $79.99 a "Backpack Sprayer" by BioLogic that holds up to 4 gallons. What do you use and how does it work
I would be unstoppable...If I could just get going!
I personally use and like our pull behind Fimco 30 gallon tank sprayer with a 4ft boom on it. You can pull it with a 4 wheeler but I prefer to use our smaller lawn tractor because I can ride at a set speed.
I have used the back pack sprayers and they do work and are good for spot spraying or even doing small plots. You still have to manually pump it but its a lot easier to do so and you can even do it while your spraying.
If you can get a lawn tractor or something similar back there, I recommend getting a pull behind.
You can get them fairly cheap at the end of the season when the places get rid of their inventory for the year.
Last year we did this and saved $120.00 on the one we got.

Hunt4ever...Try Northern tools...type in back pack sprayers...they have a sale going on...several pages of them and prices range from 40.00 to 200.00....with customer reviews for you to read...good luck
4 gallons of spray will go a long way. I purchased something similar to the one at Cabelas at the local farm supply store for $39. Only problem with the back pack sprayers is the shoulder straps are never made very well and usually need some customizing. At least that's what we've found with the two we own.
