Backpack sprayers are the ideal tool when application is needed in a smaller area or the location is difficult to access with larger equipment. In addition, back pack sprayers are the perfect spraying tool when there's the need for selective spot spraying. Unlike a hand held tank sprayer, you'll have both hands free for spraying since the liquid product will be supported on your back.
A Backpack sprayer is an inexpensive and effective way of applying herbicides, insecticides, fertilizers and other chemicals delivered in a liquid medium. They are simple units with basic components consisting of the tank with pressure gauge, a pump to pressurize the tank, a hand held spray wand with trigger grip and a spray head nozzle. Often a back pack sprayer can have different spray nozzels attached to the spray wand. The spray nozzle you select will depend upon the situation and product you're spraying. Always consult manufacturer's spray directions before using a backpack sparyer. Finally, a good back sprayer will also have an agitation unit necessary for wettable powders.
