BackPack Sprayers

Professional-Grade Backpack Sprayers

When it comes to treating a large area with herbicides or pesticides, a regular hand sprayer is not going to cut it. If you need to treat a wide space, we recommend trying a backpack sprayer. These can conveniently hold several gallons of chemical, making the application process much smoother. In addition to being used to treat for insects and weeds, most of our pressure powered sprayers can also be used as a tree sprayer, with the nozzle adjusted to shoot a narrow stream. You can also purchase extenders to gain more reach and shoot chemicals from farther distances.

Solutions carries a variety of backpack sprayers designed to save you time and a lot of headache when needing to do a heavy treatment to a wide area. This is mainly due to the fact that our backpack sprayers come with padded backing and straps, making it very easy to comfortably carry around large amounts of chemical. Many of our customers like to use our backpack sprayers to treat their lawn and garden for large weed outbreaks. Using a normal handheld sprayer in this situation would make spraying individual weeds quite cumbersome.

How to Best Use a Backpack Sprayer

There are two techniques that work best when using a backpack sprayer to spray an area. The first is by holding the nozzle tip at a suitable height above the surface of the target, which we recommend be between 14-18 inches. The second technique is to swing the wand back and forth in a pendulum motion as you walk. No matter which technique you prefer to do, make certain that you achieve a nice even coverage of the treatment site.

Backpack Sprayer Maintenance Tips

    • Thoroughly clean your sprayer after every use. This is an essential step to ensure the longevity of your backpack sprayer. Your backpack sprayer will last much longer if you rinse the equipment and flush the tank out with clean water.

    • Lubricate seals and o-rings periodically (at least once per year).

    • If you live in an area of the country where the climate can reach freezing temperatures, we recommend winterizing your sprayer before storage or storing in a warm area of your home. To winterize, use car antifreeze in your tank to prevent damage due to freezing. However, automotive antifreeze is toxic so when needing to use your sprayer, flush it out and dispose of the fluid properly.
