Up to 80" spray pattern. There are four nozzles you can spray 1, 2, 3, or 4 with any variation of them.

So you can spray trim or full swath?
How do you like the performance of this? Is coverage acceptable at walking speed?

DA Quality,
I own one of these sprayers, bought it last summer and I love it! It sprays very well and it sprays as wide as it is advertised to. I have it mounted in an Earthway heavy duty spreader. I just did not want to pay $400-$500 fpr a spreader when I already had one. If you own a Lesco, it fits right in it, no problem. I had to put a little frame of wood in my spreader because the Earthway 100lb spreader is bigger than the Lesco 80 lb. It sprays quite well and as was advertised, you can turn off or on any of the nozzles, or fold the either side of the boom in when not needed. Sometimes when spraying the grass growing along the curb, next to the sidewalk, you only need to use the farthest nozzle on that extended side of the boom to do that strip of grass without waisting any water. As fast as you can walk behind it, it will spray the grass, and cover it. The whole unit hooks up very simply, if I can do it, anybody can do it! If you do not have a mobile sprayer, this is a good addition to your arsenal of spry equipment. It costs over $900.00 with the boom and shipping, brand new.

Spreader Mate

Yes, when the battery is new and within first season of use it does last the 90 min or more depending on how much you use it. My sprayer is not used the same amount as guys who are doing 15 or more lawns a day, and spraying all of them. I may spray herbicide on 6 lawns that day while I am doing the grass cutting. I am a one man operation so I do everything. I do not do the volume that the bigger guys do, if that were the case, I would definately own a Perma Green, Ground Logic spreader/sprayer. I bought the plug in battery charger and keep it is my truck. When I am using the sprayer more on a particular day, I take it and the spreader/sprayer to the house and plug it into an outside outlet and let it charge while I am doing the cutting. It is that simple. If you are in the business of spraying lawns all day long in the chemical application business, than this is not for you, a Perma Green is. It is perfect for me, and with the fold out boom it covers alot of ground. It takes me minutes to spray a lawn with herbicide with the spreader mate, as opposed to the back pack sprayer I used for alot of years!! And you do a much more efficiant job, and use less liquid. I highly recommend it.
If you do not own a Lesco 80lb spreader, and you do not know someone with a used one in good cond. who will give you a good break on the price, I recommend the Earthway 100 lb spreader or another brand strong enough to hold the unit with 9 gallons of water in it. A used Lesco would be the best bet though because the unit is made to fit right into that spreader.

Any liquid mix, powder mix, etc will work in this sprayer, providing it is mixed properly. It is made to accomidate everything a bigger spray unit can use. It has its own agitator in the tank and the liquid is constantly agitated while in use. I have used a chalky fungicide in it and it worked fine. When I was done with that product, I washed the inside of the tank out of all residue and ran clean water through it until it was clear water. No problem. In addition to cleaning the tank and flushing it, you have to clean out the removable filter and rinse off any power or chaulky residue from it as well, or it will clock the unit and not allow it to build up pressure.

kenny, great info thanks for the input I am sure the OP is pleased.
With original nozzles and pump...how much area can you cover with a full 9 gallons?
Also, is this unit hard to push on a spreader when full of mix?
