i've seen these before that go in the spreader, i see them for sale on here and ebay.. now and again. i think cub cadet makes one too. wonder if they were worth it? seems like a neat idea.. but the weight of it might not be such a good idea unles you have no hills.

Perhaps your shoulders would feel a bit more rested if you filled your backpack only half way--and used a more concentrated solution so you would cover the same sqft per fill. Also consider an electric backpack.
Matter of fact--has anybody been able to devise a system to carry your electric backpack in your spreader--easy push and spot spray.
