Lowes had the Spectracide on sale for $62 the other day. It's a Chapin sold under many names. Comes with a couple nozzles too.

bought a solo 4 gal. at the local lesco/john deere using with the fan style nozzle and have not had a problem. Seems to have an even spray and doesn't take a whole lot of extra work JMO.

i like the shindawa it comes with a rebuild kit. i like to add stainless steel v tip like a 8006 the big thing is to keep it clean esp. if the product seems to be heavy and prone to separate when left in the sprayer

I have had good success with Shindawa sprayers and have several that are very old and still working fine. But because I am lazy I am replacing them with the Shurflo electric rather than rebuild them.
