What happened to the engine drive backpack? That was the Maruyama clone, right? I have a boomless nozzle that I hardly use. The spray pattern is nothing like a set of fan nozzles on a boom in terms of consistency of spray deposit and drift control. I have used this set up for straight fertilizer and non crop herbicides in wide open fields. Not really something I would trust on a lawn that cannot be yellowed or marked up. Celsius is pretty forgiving on lawns, but I am always nervous about what is downwind of it. If iodosulfuron metabolizes to metsulfuron flowers, trees and shrubs are in danger. On big lawns, I feel much safer using the skid sprayer to power my 3 nozzle boom. If they are big enough to drive on, they are done with the 10 ft boom on the truck.
They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
